State officials are dealing with a new wave of paperwork as they work to implement new gun laws. Residents who want permits and background checks may have a longer wait than usual.
Before the December Newtown shootings, the state would typically have between 800 and 1,400 pending pistol permits to process each month. Since Newtown, it's had more than 3,500 a month. And now, the number is up to 4,600.
