Default Concealed carry permits at all-time high

Women, minorities fasting-growing groups seeking license

More than 14.5 million Americans are now licensed to carry a concealed handgun ó a jump of 1.73 million in just a year, according to new research that says women and black Americans are among the most eager to sign up.

More than 6 percent of the adult population in the U.S. now has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, according to John R. Lott Jr. at the Crime Prevention Research Center. And those who actually carry is likely much higher because nearly a dozen states donít even require a permit to do so, he said.

Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania each have more than 1 million registered permit holders, while in the smaller states of Indiana and South Dakota, about 15 percent of all adults are permitted.

My wife now has a P938 Sig and is seeking a CCW class at this time. We are getting ready because she works in an area that is riddled with drug users and is a very nasty part of downtown Salt Lake.
