LINN COUNTY (KWWL)--  The state's new permit law took affect at the start of January and it's keeping sheriff departments busy.

In Linn County, Sheriff Brian Gardner says his office set a record for the number of weapons permit applications. In a nine hour period Monday, 99 applications were accepted.

The previous one day record was 63, set in 2008 shortly after the floods.

Sheriff Gardner says during the past 30 days, a total of about 450 permit to carry applications have been submitted.
