“Guess who came in to receive his Concealed Handgun Permit today?” the county sheriff’s office tweeted with a Santa emoji. “Did you know the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has issued 49,750 Concealed Handgun Permits with another 2,560 awaiting to be issued?”

Packing More Than Just Toys, Santa Receives Concealed Carry Permit

Santa Claus visited El Paso County, Colorado, weeks early this year to apply for a concealed handgun permit from the local sheriff’s office.

“Guess who came in to receive his Concealed Handgun Permit today?” the county sheriff’s office tweeted with a Santa emoji.

“Did you know the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has issued 49,750 Concealed Handgun Permits with another 2,560 awaiting to be issued?”

Santa appears to be filling out a concealed handgun permit application. The tweet encouraged readers to visit the sheriff’s office website for more information.

The tweet received an immediate influx of comments. Josh Helmuth, a Colorado news anchor, wrote “Santa doesn’t just carry toys in his sack, he packin’ heat.”

“you better watch out / You better watch out / You Better Watch Out / YOU BETTER WATCH OUT,” Daily Beast reported Kelly Weill tweeted.

“Be good for goodness sake,” commented Steve Staeger, a reporter for NBC 9.

“wh…who’s Santa tryna shoot?” wrote Kate Singh, a producer for Fox 21 News.

Colorado is a “shall issue” state, meaning that the state’s sheriffs are generally obligated to give a concealed carry handgun permit to anyone who meets the law’s basic requirements, according to the Giffords Law Center.
