(UNDATED) - The number of gun permits issued by the state rose by 83 percent during 2013 from the previous year.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that state police issued 111,000 personal protection permits in 2013.

State police received about 4,500 applications per month until last year, when deadly shooting events led President Obama to seek stricter ammunition policies and universal background checks.

Indiana gun permit applications surged to 23,000 in January 2013, and applications for the first six months of the year reached 90,000.

State police added five workers to process permits.
