Concealed carry and culture change

A good piece over at Joe’s. This was rather surprising:

During the next four years, the number of permits surged by 850,000 per year. Then from the end of 2011 to 2013 the yearly increase rose by 1,550,000. And during the last year the increase has continued to accelerate to 1,700,000.

    Four words:

    Shall issue.

    Obama’s mouth.

    I got mine right at the beginning of 2013. It had nothing to do with Obama or Sandy Hook. It was because I was in my early/mid 20’s and finally had enough money to buy a gun and a permit. I betting a lot of younger people were doing the same thing right about then. Then again, my mom finally bought a gun and that was definitely because of Obama. But she doesn’t have a permit.

    I got my CHL in 2005 here in Texas, ten years after they became available, because I was a landlord going through a nasty eviction with some real obnoxious people. I took my handgun with me to the rental property after they moved out because they’d threatened to come back and get me, and I was working there alone in the evenings after work. I wanted to avoid illegalities in carrying a firearm, and getting a CHL seemed the most reasonable way to do so.

    My dozens of relatives in NC, a state with a low licensee rate, continue to carry without a license, for what that is worth.
