More than 14,000 people applied to carry concealed guns in Kansas in fiscal year 2014, the second highest number on record.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt reported receiving 14,205 concealed-carry permits for the fiscal year that ended June 30.

The number down was from last year, when the state received a record 25,316 concealed-carry permits. But it was still the second most since the program began in 2006, the attorney general said.

There are currently about 83,000 Kansans with active concealed-carry permits.
