posted on March 3, 2017

Americans throughout the nation have been preparing to take advantage of their Second Amendment rights to defend themselves. The result is that last year alone, two states set a record for the number of concealed carry permits issued to their residents. 

In Minnesota, more licenses were issued than in any year since they began issuing permits in 2003. Representing a 60 percent increase over 2015, a total of 71,156 permits were granted. 

The story is the same in Ohio. The state attorney general’s office reported the highest number of permits granted since that state began issuing them in 2004. Nearly 118,000 new permits were issued along with 41,000 renewals.
