    Those numbers are lower then I though they would be.

    Compared to TX (where I live), TN’s stats look pretty good.

    TX – CHL’s 461,724 — Pop. Total – 25,674,681
    TN – THP’s 343,761 — Pop. Total – 6,403,353

    Tennessee with ~1/4 of TX’s population has just 100,000 less folks with concealed handgun permits.   Not to shabby for TN.

    Those numbers would be far more meaningful if they were shown as per capita. Amirite?

    There are only 30K active in Alaska, with a population approaching 700K, figure half of those are eligible so about 1 in 10?

    Of course even prior to Con Carry you only needed a permit in a formal Municipality so of the 1/2 of the state that’s theoretically eligible only 2/3’s(?) would even have to bother, if they weren’t looking for reciprocity while travelling. So now we’re at more like 1 in 6 or so, adjusted.

    First time I ever air-pencilled that out.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
