Hand Gun Carriers Rising Significantly Under Democratic Leadership
We’ve had a majority of liberal leadership in Washington for the last two years and more and more law-abiding gun owners are exercising their Second Amendment rights by regularly carrying loaded handguns.
It’s no wonder, murder and other violent crime rates across America continue to skyrocket, so the number of gun carriers just keeps increasing.
There was a study published this month by the American Journal of Public Health, the purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of loaded handgun carriers among adult handgun owners overall in the United States and state by state.
According to the study, the number of Americans who carry a loaded handgun every day doubled in just four years. There are about 6 million people in America who legally carried daily in 2019, this compares to 3 million in 2015.
And in the past month, there were 16 million adults who carried a handgun in the past month, this compares to 9 million in 2015.
The study also revealed that gun owners have changed the main reason for owning at least one firearm from hunting to personal protection. In 1994, almost half of gun owners used their weapons for protection primarily. But that number rose to 65% by 2015, 73 percent by 2019, and 83 percent by 2021. There is no doubt that the number will be even higher in 2022.
According to Information from the American Journal of Public Health, it reinforced the results transcribed by Blaze Media. They found that “4 in 5 carried primarily for protection, 4 in 5 had a concealed carry permit, 2 in 3 always carried concealed, and 1 in 10 always carried openly.”
There was not a great difference in the results of handgun carrying in states with permitless carry laws and states with shall-issue carry laws. The number was significantly lower in may issue carry laws.
What will the numbers be like when the GOP is back in the majority?
