John Lott's latest paper

Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States: 2017

https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3004915

Well written, easy to read, download and distribute to your friends, I printed a couple of copies to leave at my club

My favorite parts in no particular order

The Changing Gender and Race of Permit Holders
Fourteen states, with about 4 million permit holders between them, have
reported permit data by gender for 2016. Among those states, women averaged
36% of permit holders.


Permit Holders are Extremely Law-abiding
It is very rare for permit holders to violate the law. In order to appreciate how
incredibly rare these violations are, one needs to remember that there are over
16.3 million permit holders in the US. Indeed, it is impossible to think of any
other group in the US that is anywhere near as law-abiding


Number of Permit Holders by State

Massachusetts 412,369 December 31, 2016

Percent of the Adult population with Permits

Massachusetts 7.59%

Thanks rep308.

Yesterday on Twitter John Lott linked a Fox News report which he said was supported by this research (which he also linked)
