Can't wait to get Californias population added to that total. Never give up the fight for our civil right.

It's nice to see the trend.

One thing which is very important but not immediately obvious is that there are no reversals of these lines. This is a trend that has no backsliding. That's quite amazing, and similar one-way (no reversals) graphs have only ever accompanied other major social-legal changes such as womens suffrage.

As long as the rest of the country continues to fold into Constitutional 2A rights, CA should eventually fall, it's just a question of:

Will it happen in my lifetime or that of my great great great grandchildren?

Excellent chart, it is inspiring for sure.

When I did the analysis I was feeling pretty low. We'd just lost cert on Williams and Heller II had gone the wrong way. The history does give some perspective, and really represents a long term good trend. Now, on to turning the PRK around!

I would also like to point out that if even 0.1% more of Illinois' gun owners had bothered to get off their deriers and vote in the last election, this graph would look much better because IL would now be shall issue, so we would have roughly 80% of the country with CCW rights vs. 70% we have today. Everyone here knows some gun owner who refuses to vote for whatever reason. These are the people we need to reach.

Agreed! That's why I stick around here. :)

I believe one of the primary reasons to publish information like this chart is to "normalize" shall issue. 70% of Americans can carry concealed? Wow, why not me? And so on.
