USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Why can’t the law abiding citizens of Los Angeles County protect themselves?
History teaches us that human nature is a constant. Virtue and vice haven’t changed through the years. That makes comparisons extremely interesting and insightful. 6.5% of American adults took the class and paid the fees to get their license to carry a concealed firearm in public. Outside the restrictive states of California and New York, about 8% of the adult population have their permit. Women and minorities are the fastest growing segments of concealed carry holders. Compare that to Los Angeles County, California.
The issuance rate for permits in LA county is about 2200 times lower than the national average. Are the adults in LA significantly different than the rest of us? Is there some odd reason why Angelenos don’t want to protect their family, or is there another reason? Doctor John Lott collected the detailed data that makes the reason clear.
