The number of Iowans carrying concealed weapons are once again on the rise. More than 37,000 permits have been issued through the first eleven months of this year.
Nearly 103,000 were issued in 2011 when Iowa relaxed laws that govern how guns are issued.
1.3% of Iowans had permits at the end of 2010.
That's now jumped to 4.6%.
