    CCW permit holders and crime stats

    I'm new here so I've been spending a lot of time catching up on old posts. There is a lot of good info and I don't want to ask guestions that have been thoroughly debated. One thing that I've seen come up in post quite frequently is the statement, "...that can't be good for CCW..." Of course this is in reference to gun crimes.

    My question and what I think is an important statistic would be how many gun related crimes are commited by CCW permit holders? I'd also like to break that stat down into my own catagories. One for true crimes and one for bogus charges because a guy offed a home invader but the state said it was a bad shooting.

    I bet CCW holders, truly law abiding citizens, represent a small portion of gun related criminals in the US. But we won't here the using those stats, will we?

    Welcome to a fellow newbie here

    The NRA-ILA web site has a wealth of information. Finding it is sometimes a chore, but take a look at this article as a starting point:
    NRA-ILA :: Fact Sheets
    After that, Google may be your best bet for research.

    Thanks for the stats. but like most stats, they don't show a breakdown of crimes commited by CCW holders. If they did it would show that law abiding citizen gun permit holders are not shooting people, criminals are.

    I'm sure this has been hashed out before.

    Try this:

    Crime statistics for concealed carry permit holders? - Democratic Underground

    Also, Texas DPS issues stats annually but I don't have a URL for it.

    My guess is very very few are committed by CCW holders. If you're going to commit a crime, why go through the trouble of getting legal.
