18.66 million concealed carry permit holders

With gun control an issue in the election. A copy of the full report is at the link.

https://crimeresearch.org/2019/10/new-concealed-carry-report-for-2019-18-66-million-permit-holders-despite-16-constitutional-carry-states-over-1-4-million-more-than-last-year/

The number of concealed handgun permits has increased for the third year in a row. The figure now stands at over 18.66 million– a 304% increase since 2007. It’s also an 8% increase over the number of permits we counted a year ago in2018. Unlike gun ownership surveys that may be affected by people’s unwillingness to answer personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really “hard data” that we have. Sixteen states are missing from the data because people there don’t even need a permit to carry.

Among the findings of our report:

Last year, the number of permit holders continued to grow by about 1.4 million. Despite expectations that increases in permits were primarily driven by fears of Democratic presidencies, the growth has continued at a similar pace after the November 2016 election.
7.3% of American adults have permits. Outside of the restrictive states of California and New York, about 8.75% of the adult population has a permit.
In thirteen states, more than 10% of adults have permits, down from just fifteen last year. Arkansas, Oklahoma, and West Virginia fell below 10%, but they are now all Constitutional Carry states, meaning that people no longer need a permit to carry. South Carolina’s concealed carry rate has now risen to above 10%.
Alabama has the highest concealed carry rate — 26.3%. Indiana is second with 17.9%, and South Dakota — another Constitutional Carry state — saw its percentage decline to 16.02%.
Four states now have over 1 million permit holders: Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Florida is the first state to have over 2 million permits.
Sixteen states have adopted constitutional carry, meaning that a permit is no longer required. Because of these constitutional carry states, the nationwide growth in permits does not paint a full picture of the overall increase in concealed carry. But some residents still choose to obtain permits so that they can carry in other states that have reciprocity agreements.
In 2019, women made up 26.5% of permit holders in the 12 states that provide data by gender. Eight states had data from 2012 to 2019, and permit numbers grew 101% faster for women than for men.
Three states that have detailed race and gender data for at least a decade show remarkably larger increases in permits for minorities compared to whites. In Texas, black females saw a 3.6 times greater percentage increase in permits than white males. North Carolina had black permits increase twice as fast as whites. In Oklahoma, the increase for American Indians was twice the rate for whites and for blacks it was 66% greater than for whites.
From 2012 to 2018, in the four states that provide data by race over that time period, the number of black people with permits increased almost 20% faster than the number of whites with permits. Asians appear to be the group that has experienced the largest increase in permitted concealed carry, growing 29% faster than whites.
Concealed handgun permit holders are extremely law-abiding. In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at one-sixth of the rate at which police officers are convicted.

Worth noting:

VA has ~600,000 resident permit holders (8.8% of the population) and ~40,000 non resident permit holders. MD has ~24,000 resident permit holders. In VA the homicide rate is 5 / 100k, in MD it's 8.7 / 100k.

MD is ~ 1/3 black. VA is ~ 1/5 black. thats the only factor at play here. CCW by whites is largely irrelevant. gun violence is a nigger on nigger problem.

They prefer to lie and tell people that the OK corral will be on every street corner the sky will fall people will shot one another over who get the last crab leg on the buffet and over parking spots at Christmas just like they did

When Virginia passed shall issue CCW law in 1995

Why are Democrats such dirty liars when in comes to your most basic civil right

The right to keep and bear arms that they are already proposing to destroy with the assault weapon BAN they passed in the House and suppress every chance they get to give criminals the upper hand over your life and your loved ones lives

While they attack the president with talk about how they uphold the constitution !

They should wash their mouths out with soap every time they say the word

CONSTITUTION ! There Are Pure UN AMERICAN LIARS OF THE WORST SORT !

written by george mason:
Section 13. That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

FCPD is a standing army with armored cars, assault rifles, body armor, helicopters and attack dogs so according to george mason I am within my rights to go on a sniping spree as long as I only shoot cops! sic semper tyrannis!

the tyrants of today make the british of 1776 look like freedom loving camp counselors yet people just pull over, bend over and roll over for the jackbooted thugs. smartphones have brainwashed us into complacency and the founding fathers are rolling in their graves. someone needs to start shooting and bombing these tyrants for real

Actually, claims tying the 2nd to slave compromises are tenuous. The militias were designed to replace a standing army (full time army) with a reserve of trained volunteers which would respond when needed. A small cadre of professionals (West Point) would form a core of expertise. Militias were used in the War of 1812, Mexican conflicts, and at the start of the civil war to raise troops for federal service. Any claim that they existed primarily to suppress slaves elevates a minor incidental use beyond its actual importance. (Slavery was an abomination that should never be repeated; but it will be if slaves lack the means to fight back.)

There is, however, no question that the major purpose of gun control has been to disarm populations that were deemed dangerous or unworthy, primarily immigrants [Irish and Chinese] and blacks. Gun control has always been about keeping the majority in power by denying the oppressed a means to fight back. Read your history. Even (especially) today, does anyone really think the gangbangers are going to turn in their guns if congress or a state passes a confiscation law? Of course not, and that includes the politicians who want the law. They all know it won't work to reduce crime; that only the law abiding would obey it. So, why are they so anxious to pass it? Control - plain and simple.

That are sworn to enforce laws that's it. The military can not be used against the civilians in the US without direct orders from the president with federal martial law in effect

No such laws govern police. They possess military weapons and gear, that's constitutional as long as the citizens may possess the very same items with reasonable regulations not bans with regard to firearms.

To do otherwise and ban weapons of the citizens yet allow police military weapons breaks the constitution and the balance of the powers of government the bedrock foundation upon which the U.S. government stands

Democrats want to destroy the balance of power and the constitution with gun bans without reasonably regulation or amending and ratifying the constitution.
It will be the beginning of the end to an experiment in Liberty that was officially started July 4 th 1776.

The constitution is what holds America together and provides its people their civil rights , once broken this nation will not stand long

Its impossible that you have a backbone as you have a psychomanic fear about guns because your a weak spoon fed pampered liberal Democrat

Get out of here and watch Safe Sesame Street reruns and stay in your soft fuzzy safe space with your illegal criminal pets that are far more dangerous then a gun

Operating a vehicle on a publicly funded road is a privilege not a right. The taxpayers havent bought me any guns recently but it is my absolute right to obtain arms through my own convenes! the difference between rights, privileges and entitlements has become quite muddled in this day. For example, Healthcare is a system of expensive goods and services that cost money, you have the right to seek healthcare but youre not entitled to it. If an economy is strong enough and socialized medicine becomes viable it becomes a privilege, like taxpayer funded roads. notice when you drive on your own land there are no stop signs. private doctors give a higher standard of care than govt docs you have more options. I have the right to build my own nukes, provided I dont use them, if someone tries to take my nukes when I am being peaceful I have the right to use reasonable force to protect my property but not to nuke innocent people
