In Missouri the legislature passed Concealed Carry over the governor's veto in September of 2003.
Before permits were issued a St Louis judge issued a restraining order. In March of 2004 The Missouri Supreme Court threw out the restraining order and permits started to be issued with the exception of St Louis, Kansas City and perhaps one or two other anti-gun cities
St Louis and Kansas found a technicality about funding and held up issuing permits for an additional 14 months.
It was approximately 20 months AFTER the legislature passed the Concealed Carry bill until citizens in those blue cities started to obtain CC permits.
I hope you fare better than Missouri as far as the time factor.
BTW Missouri is a Shall Issue state.
