    CPRC/John Lott publishes new "concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the USA"

    Indiana is one of 3 states with over 10% of the population having "permits". We are actually second on that list. Way to go HOOSIERS!

    "The report also examines the violent crime rate in relation to the rising percentage of the adult population with concealed carry permits. Between 2007 and the preliminary estimates for 2013, murder rates have fallen from 5.6 to 4.4 per 100,000 – a 22 percent drop in the murder rate at the same time that the percentage of the adult population with permits soared by 130 percent. Overall violent crime also fell by 22 percent over that period of time"

    Florida and Utah are included.

    I hold a Florida license and I have never stepped on Florida soil. I imagine that there are a good number of Utah licensees in similar circumstances.

    I have carried in Florida. Those Hawaiian shirts are great for conceal carry.

    for Utah, the study said they only included Utah resident permits. Florida may have nonresidents in their number.

    There is a ton of people in Florida who have a permit but most of them don't carry.

    Way to go Indiana.

    Kirk, did you opt-out of the FL public database by mentioning your time as a prosecutor? My time was l o n g before I first picked up the FL license, but I did.

    Lott has just published another study PDF HERE.

    The study has Indiana ranked 6th in total "permits" issued and as a percentage of the adult population with "permits", we're 3rd at 11.62%, behind Alabama (12.64%) and South Dakota (12.30%).

    Way to go Hoosiers!
