Ohio issuing more and more concealed handgun permits

The Ohio Attorney General just released these numbers.

2004: 45,497
2005: 22,487
2006: 18,781
2007: 22,103
2008: 33,864
2009: 56,691

A copy of the report is available here. I wish that they would report the number of active permits. There were 378 revocations in 2009. That is about 0.66 percent of newly issued permits, but obviously the number of permits currently active is much higher. I am told that the current number of active permits is 178,000 (see comments). (378/178,000)*100=0.21%. It is also important to note that revocation can occur by moving out of state.

BFA estimated around 178,000

In Ohio you can be revoked for moving out of the state

Thanks for posting. I recently saw that S. Dakota is at 9% (Adults w/ CCWs), and that Knoxville city is at 12%. Is there a source for all shall-issue %'s?

I also recall a stat from 5-8 years ago that stated Israel is (was) at 10%.

These numbers are helpful to understand adoption rates and trends. Please post is you have access to these!

Dear Karl:

Thanks for the comment. The forthcoming third edition of More Guns, Less Crime will have detailed data for each state for 2007. I also have updated data on gun ownership data by state. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0226493660/ref=nosim/?tag=johnrlotttrip-20
