Denver metro area gun shops say they’re seeing a spike in business and more people taking gun safety classes after Sunday’s shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and last month’s incident at the Century Theater in Aurora.

Since the shootings, applications for conceal carry permits have jumped through the roof. There’s been a doubling in Arapahoe County and quadrupling in Douglas County the week after the theater shooting.

The sheriff’s office says some of those permits may have been in the works beforehand. Still, gun shops say people are buying guns for personal safety. Many are first timers, and many are women.
