A report from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) shows there 1.4 million more concealed carry permit holders than there were in 2018.

The report, released October 2, shows there are now nearly 19 million concealed permit holders in America.

The CPRC report shows that four states have over one million permit holders each. Those states are Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas. It also shows that eight states which kept gender-based data “from 2012 to 2019…[saw] permits for women growing 101% faster for women than those for men.”

And four states with data on race from 2012 to 2018 witnessed “the number of black people with permits [increase] almost 20% faster than the number of whites with permits.”

On January 18, 2016, Breitbart News reported that women got concealed carry permits at twice the pace of men during Barack Obama’s second term in the White House. Moreover, a CPRC study published evidence “[suggesting] that permit-holding [was] increasing about 75 percent more quickly among minorities than among whites.”

The increases among women and minorities appear to be trends that are continuing.

That number would be even higher if many states didn't move over to constitutional carry too.

Since there are 16 Constitutional Carry states, which is approximately a third of the nation, that means there are roughly 25 million people conceal carrying across the nation, with and without a permit.

Quite possibly higher being many of those states are of course very pro gun with more gun owners while many of the states that require permits are overall anti gun with less people getting permits. Then think of places like NYC which is over half the state population and it's nearly impossible to get a permit there. Like how many guns and gun owners are there it's another number that's hard to accurately track. The higher number of permits and the new FBI lower crime stats are showing a trend though.....

Fear is one hell of a motivator,
Announce that you are going to take away our guns, we will buy millions more.
I think the Robert Francis O'Rourke has a good chance to beat both Hillary and Obama and the Greatest gun salesman of all time.

Too bad that those additional licensed citizens do not follow up and become members of one of more of the gun oriented organizations. The more people that are members of these groups, the more power we have to prevent abuses by the extreme left DemocRATS.
