    How Many People Legally Carry Concealed in the USA?

    I have not been able to find an answer or even a current estimate to this question. Any help will be appreciated.

    Last year a database with the names of over 900,000 New York State concealed carry permit holders was released by New York State to a person who filed a freedom of information law request for the information.

    Texas has about 450,000 SSW holders.

    So I'd guess the total number for all states is over 3 million.

  8. There is no way to estimate, multiple states now have constitutional carry, so in theory any non-felon in those states can choose to carry.

    MN has at least 85,000 permits issued as of last year.

    pafoa.org list the number of permits that were issues by each county in Pennsylvania for the past few years. They also the number of permits that were revoked by county. No names, just numbers.

    Regarding a license, I don't believe the document is confidential information. I have a social work license, and have noticed that my name and place of employment have mysteriously shown up on few healthcare ratings websites.

    In 2008 here in Florida there were over 500,000 permit holders. Considering how busy the licensing offices have been since then, I'd imagine that number has grown significantly.

    Thats why they call it concealed carry. If the "Bad Guy" knew who you were you might become one dead puppy.
