The number of permit holders increased by a record 2 million last year, 200,000 more than the previous record set in 2017, and adds that 8.3% of American adults are licensed. In 15 states, more than 10% of adults are licensed. The highest concealed carry rate is in Alabama, where 32.1% of adults are licensed and the Indiana and Iowa rates are 21.6% and 16.5%, respectively.
Additionally, the study found that license holders are legal.
“License holders are the most law-abiding,” the study states. “In Florida and Texas, license holders are sentenced to one-twelfth of the rate of punishing police officers for gun-related violations.”

John r. Lot Jr., President Crime Prevention Research CenterAccording to LBL, increased crime and money laundering have led to an increase in gun permits.
“The increase in gun sales over the last two years, the increased crime and the inability of the police to do their job, and the increase in the number of inmates released from prisons and prisons,” Lott said.
The increase would have been greater if there were no coronavirus lockdowns that stopped or reduced licenses in 20 states, Lott said.
“These numbers are particularly prevalent,” the US Supreme Court heard in November in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Carlet’s concealed carry case. “The case determines whether a licensee must provide a ‘valid reason’ for obtaining a license. Eight states with that rule have granted only 1.24% of their adult population.”
If the “right cause” regulation were to be abolished, the study suggests that 2.3 million more licenses could be issued in affected states.

The study observes that women and minorities make up a significant percentage of the increase in gun licensing.
“In 2021, 28.3% of licensed women in 14 states will provide data on gender, up from 26.4% last year,” the study states. “Seven states had data from 2012 to 2020/2021, and license numbers grew 108.7% faster for women than for men.”
Additionally, the three states that provide detailed race and gender data show “a significantly larger increase in minority licensure compared to whites.”
“In Texas, black women saw a 6.3-fold increase in white men from 2002 to 2020,” according to the study. “From 2002 to 2020, the Oklahoma data showed that the increase in licenses approved by Asians and American Indians was twice that of whites.
The study added, “From 2015 to 2020/2021, in the four states that provide racial data, the number of licensed Asian people increased by 93.2% faster than whites.
