    How many permit holders in your state

    Michigan became a "shall issue" state about five years ago and recent information from the Michigan state police show that there are a little over 202,000 residents with CPL'S. How many permit holders are in your state. It would be nice to know how many people in the U.S have carry permits.

    According to Roe v. Wade we ALL have the right to privacy. And According the 14th Amendment we have equal protection under the law.

    This means it is no one's business, even the government if I do or don't carry a tool to protect my family and myself from evildoers. But unfortunately those of us who have decided to have had to go a set process to be approved by the government that Founders expected to be less intrusive and expected the populace to be self-relient.

    ANY gun registry violates the right to privacy and potentially makes the body politic subservient on the government.

    So the bottom line is even if I knew I wouldn't even tell my own mother.

    They are left in full possession of them."

    Minnesota has about 45,000 "Permit to carry a pistol" holders. No big deal telling this. If the government wants to find any info on ANY of us, it would take them a very short while to do so. We don't like it but it's a sorry fact of life.. Hell they can tell what I'm typeing right now by parking a van out in the street and reading the electro magnetics given off by my hitting this keyboard. NOTHING is private anymore.

    Be safe.

    This thread might be useful for you - as we covered this not too long ago.

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthrea...threadid=64575

    PA has an estimated 6.75% uptake on permits and thus in theory, about 800,000. As to how many actively carry that'd be guesswork but I doubt much more than even 10% are dedicated.

    In the "May Issue" State of Iowa, the last count was just under 28,000. Not even 1% of the population.

    Still, that's a lot of people. The "shall issue" states probably have a higher percentage. Here in the "issue..what-issue?" state of Vermont, nobody has any idea which is no big deal. I think everybody, budget permitting, should go out and apply for every permit possible. That way when those champions of every amendment but the second think they can make a move on the, um, issue, many, many people will come seemingly out of nowhere and say "nothing doing!" and make it stick.

    No Idea how many here in the State of Washington, but in my opinion, not enough. We still have 2 anti gun Senators, I'm sure if we had enough people with permits we would have enough people to vote our senators out of office.

    We won't have enough permit holders till 90% of the residents have one in my opinion.

    Not to get off subject. It would be interesting to find out how many Open Carry as well. I know a few that refuse to get a CCW but do open carry.

    One of the reasons for asking the question was to show that we do indeed have a very strong voice not only in our own home state but also in Washington. While the NRA, which i am a proud memeber of may have a little over 3 million members, not all NRA members are strong supporters of concealed carry rights. We all know how strong a lobby the NRA is, just imagine if permit holders in the united states equaled those numbers. Something to think about

    In NM, less than 3800 as of Dec 2005.

    It is a substantial nuisance to apply here, DPS makes it needlessly hasslesome.

    Open carry is legal (I wouldn't, generally) it's legal to have a pistol in your car, and unlawful to carry into a bar, grocery store or anyplace that sells alcohol.

    Considering how few people have licenses, I'm surprised it ever passed here.

    I'm in process of renewing my CCW, just because I don't want it rescinded because of "lack of interest".

    I don't fancy becoming a criminal again, if I don't have to.

    In the 'Never' Issue state of Hawaii: 2

    One to the Governor of the State, and

    the second, to the guy that supplies the firearms to the states LEOs.

    Sucks, doesn't it?
    Always remember: 3 can keep a secret, if 2 are dead!
