TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The state of Kansas received a record number of applications for concealed carry permits in January.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt's office said Friday it 3,167 Kansans applied for the permits last month. That more than doubles the previous record of 1,651 in last March.

The office says it received 1,593 applications in December and 1,344 in November.

Gun sales and applications for gun permits have increased across the country in response to discussions about tightening gun regulations after a shooting at a Newtown, Conn., school left 20 elementary school students and six teachers dead.
