One million? Wow you beat us in Wisconsin. That is great news. I think you will become a model state to show the rest of the country that gun toting is normal American right, espcially the paranoid states like New Jersey, New York, California, Connecticut etc...

Any and all spelling errors are just to give the spelling Nazis something to do
They have to have a license to open carry. They are way behind the curve.
I guess it is a happy consequence that the licensing allows us to "brag" about high numbers of gun-toters. Of course this number doesn't include those that car carry without a license, those that carry under some exception other than a CHL/LTC, or those that simply carry illegally (which I would venture to guess is a much higher number than many would think).
136k LTC applications from December '15 to February '16 compared to 57k December '14 to February '15 is indeed an interesting number.
I think it is still wrong to categorize Texas as a "gun-friendly" state while our legislature remains venomously statist and refuses to respect the true meaning of the second amendment.

Righteous government, or the righteous lack thereof, is the product of a righteous society, not the producer of it.

Want to see a fairly good model state (in the southwest)? Visit sunny Arizona or the friendly folks in Nevada. Hard to go wrong with either one.
"Constitutional Carry" in AZ since 2010, and I've yet to have a real problem with LEOs in Tucson, Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Flagstaff, Sedona, Show Low, Tombstone, Williams, or Kingman*.
I will say, the NV folks have us AZers beat in the bar and restaurant department. One can drink a beer or two WHILE clearly OCing and without a permit to boot! Definitely an experience worth trying at least the one time.

me i am content, term being relative, with NC and our little facet of OC...
