John Lott recently published a study (November 2022) he conducted on the growth of concealed carry in the U.S. It contains statistics on the number of licenses active in each state, which states have seen the most growth and even breaks the numbers down by race and gender. You can read and download the report from the following linked webpage.

Thanks for posting.

John Lott is truly one of the greats that will become one with the Firearms Force.
Yes he is.

One important takeaway from the study is that as concealed carry had increased violent crime had not. There may be other factors involved but at a minimum the anti/2A crowd can’t say the increase in concealed carry increases violent crime. The raw numbers don’t support that claim.

That's good to know that he has included more updates to that in this recent study.

More than anyone else, even criminologist Gary Kleck (who is great), Dr. Lott is the one who finally gave "us" a real academic foot hold to plant our feet and push back. His authorgraphed copy of "More Guns, Less Crime" remains a prized possession of mine.
