    MY wife and I know that FL has 2...

    I think that you can take (on a average) a state's total population and multiply by 2-3 %...you'll be close.

    The last figures for PA I could find were from the end of 2008. 637,949. About 7% of the 21+ population.

    My previous home state of North Dakota has issued 13,347 as of Oct 27, 2009. Course 5,357 were issued as of that date in 2009. Glad to say that I am 1 of those even though I dont need it thanks to resiprocity with other permits I have

    My idea of gun control is using BOTH hands!

    Kansas is pretty new to concealed carry but here are the near month old stats.

    Looks like 2009 was our best year so far, I hope we smash that number this year.

    Back in 1998, Oregon had some 86000. I have yet to see numbers since then. Does anyone know where Oregon publishes such things??

    Not sure of the exact number in Pennsylvania but I've heard something like 1 in 20 people have a LTCF. Given the population is 12.5 million, doing the math is about 625,000 people with a license to carry. According to the clerk at the courthouse in 2007 there were 8,000 active LTCF's in my county alone, so that 625K seems about right.
