Demand for CHL/CHPs increasing

Study: Demand for concealed carry weapons permits skyrocketing despite anti-gun campaigning

Issued CCW permits have increased about 275 percent over a 10-year period, from 4.6 million permits in 2007 to more than 17.25 million permits in 2018, according to a study released Friday by Crime Prevention Research Center.

The figure has increased every year and is expected to continue increasing.

From 2007 through 2018, women and minorities represent the largest demographic increase. When compared to white individuals, permits for Asian and black individuals spiked 29 percent and 20 percent faster, respectively.


“A poll by [the] Pew [Research Center] helps to explain why there has been such a large increase in concealed handgun permits among blacks and women,” he said. “The poll shows a 25 percentage point increase in the proportion of blacks with a favorable view of gun ownership. This is the largest increase of any group.”

Among all women the increase was 11 percent, and the increase among men was 8 percent.


And what we've known all along.

The study also showed that CCW permit holders are “extremely” law-abiding citizens.

I'm glad to see more "minorities" of the American citizens finally seeing the light.

The more of them that believe in the need for their own self defense the more of them will support keeping the 2nd Amendment intact.
