    Thumbs up Women, Minorities Fueling Increase in Concealed Handgun Permits

    Each year brings a new record increase in the number of concealed handgun permits. The rate of growth in permits among women and minorities has far outpaced growth among white men. The data paint a picture of incredibly law-abiding permit holders, the vast majority living outside America’s insular media capitals. - John Lott Jr

    A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that there are now 18.7 million concealed handgun permits in the U.S., up 1.4 million since last August. Far more people carry guns today than in 2007, when there were only 4.6 million permits. Sixteen states now no longer require a permit to carry in their state. Eleven of those states made the change since 2015. ...

    Us gun owners need more women buying guns and applying for concealed permits because the Gestapo is less likely to give them trouble or risk being called a "Racist" or "Mysogynist". The women have more cards to play than men as they can even accuse the permit giver with discrimination.

    White males (non-Hispanic) comprise about 28% of the US population. In an ideal World, all else being equal, 28% of concealed carry permits in the USA would be held by White men. I find it funny that the article uses that segment of Society as the yardstick, "..... far outpaced growth among white men." Like we're the gun freaks against which all other owners are measured.

    I got my DNA tested several times, less than 2% Caucasian. I'm "Other". And darn proud of it.
