Photo submitted – According to sources, the sale of various types of firearms and applications for gun permits have increased since Friday's shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

Gun sales and permit applications are up in Elk County and nationwide, sources say, following the shooting incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. last Friday that left 20 children and six adults dead at the school.
Elk County Chief Deputy Sheriff Theresa Merritt said applications for gun permits, which are processed through the sheriff's office, have gone up over the last few years but did not increase significantly since Friday.
