    Interesting CCW facts

    Found some interesting CCW facts at this website.

    In 1986, nine states had right-to-carry laws.

    As of 1998, 31 states have right-to-carry laws, and about half the U.S. population lives in these states.
    221,443 concealed carry licenses were issued in Florida between October of 1987 and April of 1994. During that time, Florida recorded 18 crimes committed by licensees with firearms.
    As of 1998, nationwide, there has been 1 recorded incident in which a permit holder shot someone following a traffic accident. The permit holder was not charged, as the grand jury ruled the shooting was in self defense.

    Another interesting CCW fact here in Michigan...Even in my Criminal Justice classes students refer to our Concealed Pistol Licenses issued by the state as CCWs which stands for carrying a concealed weapon, a criminal offense, not a license issued to carry a pistol.

    This statement is misleading.

    In how many States was permitless open carry legal in 1986? Those are the true right to carry states.
