We’re #13! Woo hoo!

by wfgodbold

According to the stats posted by Joe Huffman, Arkansas is thirteenth (with ~3.588% of the population licensed (1 in 27.9 people)) when the states are ordered according to percentage of population with concealed-carry licenses.

Beating us, in order, are: New Hampshire, South Dakota, Utah, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Tennessee, Washington, Indiana, Wyoming, and Florida.

New Hampshire is in first by a mile, too; 16.497% of New Hampshirians (New Hampshirites? Whatever.) are licensed to carry. That’s 1 in 6.1 people! South Dakota’s 6.85% (1 in 14.6 people) pales in comparison.

I’d have thought there would be more than 6.3 million CCW holders in the whole country, but you can’t argue with the numbers*.

If you’re curious about your own state, head over to Joe’s and download the spreadsheet and check!

*Technically, I suppose you can argue with the numbers. It just won’t end well. Math is kind of a dick.
