More Residents Applying For CCW Permit

DETROIT (WWJ) – According to a report from the Michigan State Police, the number of residents trying to get a concealed weapons permit rose to more than 86,800 last year, a 30 percent increase over the previous year.

The number of applications granted has increased 226 percent since July of 2008.

William Kucyk, a long time cop and attorney who is now the owner of Action Impact shooting range in Southfield, said that people are just accepting their own responsibility.

“I feel like it’s a good thing. I think the state of our economy has certainly affected our local governments, to the extent of our personal protection as far as police are concerned,” Kucyk said. 

“I think people are accepting the fact that our safety is our own responsibility to some extent. We can’t expect nor could we require that the police always be there to protect us,” Kucyk continued.
