Well, since your Sta

Well, since your State has over 9 million, that tells me about 2.5% of the Total Population (rough numrebs) has a CCW Permit. But if you knock off about 2 million (underage, convicted Felons, etc.), that goes up to 3.2% of the Legal Adult Population has permits. So 1 out of 30 Adults at the Mall could be legally Armed at any given time. Yet, where are the Massive Pools of Blood?Wish Ohio had your numrebs.

To add a little to Joels post NY is very tight/strict. It may be even tougher in the NYC area. About 10 years ago I was all setup for the law enforcement field (college degree/some great field experience) and was in the top 25 on the civil service recruitment list. Now police officers in NYS must have a valid pistol permit in order to carry. This is not a part of their police officer privilege. So I paid 150.00 for the class and then had fingerprints taken the same day which is a part of the application process. Then we're to find 4 references who are not related to you, do not have a criminal background, and live in the same township as you. So I got all the references taken care of and sent my paperwork in all within 1 week of the class. It took 8 months for a response from the Pistol Permit clerk. I then had to go into the city of Buffalo which is where all the county clerks and stuff are located to speak with an apointee of the county who basically goes over your application and asks all these questions why you want a pistol permit, your intentions, plans, views on gun control, who lives in the home with you, any family members with criminal/violent pasts, etc. It was pretty intense. Then the question which ended the entire interview----why did it take you 8 months to send in your application? It took me 1 week to send it in I replied. Well I don't know what happened here but with the app. being over 6 months old you'll have to take another permit course and redo the entire process. I was more sad than angry. So I think NY is the toughest to get one.

Tennessee: The 8 hour class costs between $50 and $75 depending on where you go. The App fee is $125 at your local DMV. That is good for 5 years then it's $50 to renew.

Took mine back in '07. Costed about $125 for the class, plus $125 in state fees. Ouch. It hurt, but now I carry my S.A. micro compact 1911.everywhere not prohibited by law. And its good for 10 years. Half the price to renew.

Texas is pushing for Open Carry now too.

I love my state. :biggrin:

Les: good point. Las

Les: good point. Last I looked, the DOC wibeste showed 1.5% of the NC population in jail, on probation, or on post release supervision. I'll look up some numbers tonight to see if I can get a better estimation of the total percentages.

Good info. How about the new rule change in the national parks, where you can carry if your state allows it. It's about time.

Vermont permit

If you want to carry a handgun, move to Vermont. We have no restrictions at all. You may carry a concealed weapon here without any permit needed.
