"A Whole Lotta These Goin' Through Here Today"

Not being sure whether my letter to be mailed weighed more than a single first class stamp would cover, I slipped the envelope across the counter to the postal employee to check.

"A whole lotta these goin' through here today," he said.

"I bet," I replied. It was not yet even noon.

What could have given it away? Perhaps it was the 'ATTN: Firearms Unit' written within the address.

Today is the first day the State of Wisconsin is accepting applications for concealed carry firearms permits.

I wonder how long it will take the bureaucracy to process my application and return my permit.

UPDATE: The DOJ reports that more than 80,000 applications were downloaded by 11AM this morning.
