NJ radio host's killing spurs gun permit increase

Posted: Updated:

LINWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Police in Linwood have seen a sharp increase in applications for gun permits in the wake of the shooting death of a local radio host.

No arrests have been made in the shooting death of 47-year-old April Kauffman, a businesswoman and radio show host who was known widely as an advocate for military veterans.

Police officials tell the Press of Atlantic City http://bit.ly/P8Vc4f that there were 15 requests for permits in May alone after Kauffman was found fatally shot May 10 in the bedroom of her Linwood home.

Since her death, police say there have been a total of 59 applications through July.

Police say before May, there were four to nine requests a month.

They say requests for gun permit applications could double last year's totals.
