With a growing number of concealed carry permit holders and more states going with constitutional carry it will become increasingly difficult to implement strict un control laws. 

Why Americans Are Getting Concealed Carry Permits In Record Numbers

https://www.19fortyfive.com/2021/10/why ... d-numbers/

More Americans than ever are expressing their Second Amendment rights, and that isn’t just to own or as the Constitution puts it “keep” firearms, but they’re also “bearing” the arms as in carrying those guns.

Concealed Carry Permits: What the Numbers Tell Us 

 According to a new Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) report, the number of concealed carry permits has surged in recent years – and is up by about 48 percent since 2016 – while since the start of the pandemic there has been a 10.5 percent increase. The overall number of permit holders grew by a record two million, beating out the previous record of 1.8 million that was set back in 2017. The number of American adults with a concealed carry permit is now 8.3 percent.
 The number of concealed handguns grew to 21.52 million in 2020. Alabama now has the highest concealed carry rate at 32.1 percent, followed by Indiana at 21.6 percent and Iowa at 16.5 percent.

 While that may have some anti-gun groups concerned, supporters of the Second Amendment maintain that Americans are simply embracing their constitutional rights and seek to carry a firearm for protection. John R. Lott, president of the CPRC, told FoxNews in a statement that the increase was largely due to increased crime in recent years, as well as the defund the police movement.“The reason for the increase is the same as the increase in gun sales over the last two years, increased crime and concerns that police aren’t able to do their job and that large numbers of inmates were released from jails and prisons,” Lott said.

And for the kicker:

The study also reported that, “Permit holders are extremely law-abiding. In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of firearms-related violations at one-twelfth of the rate at which police officers are convicted.”Concealed Carry Permits Meets Constitutional Carry
 The surge in concealed carry permits is also notable as there are now 21 states that no longer provide data on the number of permits issues, because individuals in those states no longer need a permit to carry a firearm. Texas became the most recent so-called “Constitutional Carry” state in June, joining Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
 The CPRC report state, “As more and more states decide not to require permits, the number of people who can legally carry a handgun will increasingly outpace the number of permit holders. The number of people who carry permitted concealed handguns is clearly related to the cost of getting permission. When there is no cost whatsoever, concealed carry becomes very popular.”

 SCOTUS Ruling
 Next month, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is also set to hear the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association V. Corlett, and its ruling could determine whether permit requestors will be required to provide a ‘proper cause’ for obtaining a permit. Currently eight states utilize such a rule, and have only issued permits to 1.24 percent of their adult population compared to 10.77 percent for the other states, the study noted.
 “That case will determine whether those requesting permits need to provide a ‘proper cause,’ which means a good reason for obtaining a permit,” the authors wrote.

We need to get guns in the hands of 4 year olds.  But not 3 year olds because that would be crazy

The day 4 year olds are prevented from covering the playground with sniper rifles is the day freedom dies.  Glad you agree

You are a **** liar.  You don’t know the numbers.  CCP holders have minimal gun violations and commit the least amount of crimes.

Stop with the **** point.  If you have a flying **** about gun deaths you would be looking iplaces like Chicago and NYC.

Next ylu acting like a typical progressive who thinks it is his job to determine the needs of others.  And don’t lie and claim you are not a progressive.  



 
Why do you think I want to ban guns, and say most people have no need for one.

Is there a lost of deer hunting on the mean streets of Chicago? No.  Well, then, you have no nead for a gun, like nearly all people who live in cities...


 

 
 Because as a wannabe elitist you said this:
Most people have no need for a gun here.  None.
Next, as a wannabe elitist you don’t read well.  Here is what I actually said:
Next you’re  acting like a typical progressive who thinks it is his job to determine the needs of others.  And don’t lie and claim you are not a progressive.  
That was a seriously lame attempt at reframing by strawman.  You portray your screen name as an elitist but your are neither informed enough or smart enough to actually be one.  
 
again, who are you to determine need.  And getting back to the topic with all the new gun owners and CCP holders, as well as the hundred million that already existed, how do you expect to have this implemented?  You edit that out and stray from the topic back to Pg for you.

That's how Elitism works.  Same as the Founders.  We set the rules others play by.

Liberalism has rules and someone must set them.  You don't leave that to the pitchforks and ditch-diggers.

There were actually very good arguments for never teaching them to read, let alone vote...
