For the past year, the news has been filled with reports of declining firearm sales. The sales have been so bad that Remington had to seek bankruptcy protection and Sturm Ruger has reported large losses for the past two quarters.

Based on this kind of news, one would think that applications for firearm permits would also be down, and in some areas that might be true but not in Forsyth County, North Carolina. The number of applications for obtaining firearm permits, background checks, fingerprinting and conceal carry permit applications has caused the county commissioners to vote to fund a couple of temporary hires to handle the load for the sheriff’s office.

(Winston-Salem Journal) – The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved on Thursday a contract with Bradley Personnel Inc., continuing temporary staffing services to meet increased demand for firearms applications and fingerprinting at the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Forsyth County will pay Bradley Personnel $67,170 for two positions for a year in the sheriff’s office’s permits unit. The contract with Bradley Personnel also pays for one position in recruitment for three months.

The money will be appropriated in the fiscal year 2018-2019 sheriff’s office budget to cover this cost.

Many people already have firearms and now are wanting to obtain a concealed carry permit for self-protection. Others are seeing the rate of how fast America is declining and feel that they need to purchase a handgun in hopes of obtaining a concealed carry permit and just because sales are down in some places, doesn’t mean they are down everywhere, as indicated by what’s happening in Forsyth County.
