I’ve been looking at the Crime Prevention Research Center’s 2022 concealed carry permit report.
Georgia, with a population of 10,711,908, has 1,285,302 CC licensees. CPRC says that’s 15.53% of the adult population. I note that it’s 12% of the total population, men, women, or children. And I’m certain the license numbers don’t reflect everyone with a gun for protection.
Even before Georgia finally went constitutional carry, and eliminated the requirement for a license.
Oh, and nationally, CPRC put the number of license holders at 22.01 MILLION, including the twenty-four constitutional carry states.
