CCW Permit Percentage by State


Here's some interesting information. This list shows what percentage of an individual state's population have concealed carry permits.

I've only posted the upper part of the list, and if your state is not shown, then the percentage is below one percent.

To see the full listing, take a look here.

1st. - 7.45% South Dakota
2nd. - 6.79% Indiana
3rd. - 6.76% Pennsylvania
4th. - 5.23% Connecticut
5th. - 5.12% Washington
6th. - 4.34% Idaho
7th. - 4.10% Utah
8th. - 3.86% Oregon
9th. - 3.45% Tennessee
10th. - 3.15% Alabama
11th. - 2.72% Florida
12th. - 2.71% Kentucky
13th. - 2.67% Wyoming
14th. - 2.41% Maine
15th. - 2.18% Arkansas
16th. - 2.11% Virginia
17th. - 1.94% West Virginia
18th. - 1.76% Arizona
19th. - 1.75% Oklahoma
20th. - 1.70% Montana
21th. - 1.70% Michigan
22th. - 1.62% Texas
23rd. - 1.39% South Carolina
24th. - 1.34% North Dakota
25th. - 1.00% North Carolina

It almost makes you want to move to South Dakota, but not quite!

Hat tip to SaysUncle!

Take Florida --- 2.7% of a population of 30,000,000 is a lot more than 7% of 600,000

That would be an interesting statistical comparison - a State's GNP of concealed gunnery?

Colorado has only had it's "shall issue" law in place since 2003; from what I hear, the % is probaly above what's given on the list. Also, does Florida indicate how many are for out-of-state permits? If you have a carry permit in a state other than Florida, check which states yours has reciprocity with - I picked up a Florida permit to go with my Colorado permit as it's good in more states (so far).

What do you mean by "but not Quite!" What were you checking to see if I was listening?
