Despite Obama’s endless BS over the past 8 years, you do have to give him one thing: he’s the best gun salesman of all time. With his continuous attacks on our Second Amendment rights, Americans are flocking to gun stores and getting their conceal carry permits in record numbers.
A recently released Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) study shows the number of concealed carry permits in the U.S. has surged by 215% under President Obama.
The number of permits held nationwide surpasses 14.5 million, which means “6.06% of the total adult population has a permit.”
According to CPRC, there was an increase of 1.73 million concealed permits in 2015 alone. This was 100,000 greater than the previous record of 1.63 million, set in 2014.
It is interesting to note that “in ten states, more than 10% of adults have concealed handgun permits.” The highest rate of carry is in Indiana, where 15% of adults have a permit. “South Dakota is close behind with 14.7%” and Florida, Texas, and Philadelphia “each have over a million residents who are active permit holders.”
The most staggering of all is that that there could actually be more than 14.5 million citizens carrying, since 11 of the states do not require a permit to conceal carry, as these states have made the switch from a permit state to a constitutional carry states.
The American spirit is stronger than ever, despite having a tyrant wanna-be in the White House. You can be sure that whenever we feel like our rights are being taken away, we will fight back will full force and throw your tyranny right back in your face!
