A conceal carry instructor said the number of students in his classes have tripled.

Jaime Escobedo, owner of the American Firing Range [Brownsville, TX], started with small classes of 10 in 2005. Now, anywhere from 30 to 35 people sign up monthly. He has even had a class of 78 people.

“I’m seeing at least eighty percent will come in with their own handguns. Some of them even purchase them the night before,” said Escobedo.

If you take a conceal carry class, you must be a U.S. citizen and be over 21 years old. You can’t have a felony or certain misdemeanors on your record in the past five years. If you owe taxes or child support, you are not eligible for a license.
