Just go to: http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/statistics.php
and download the .pdf titled, "Carry Concealed Weapon Licenses Report"

Net change from 2005 to 2006 for all of CA: we went from 42,353 to 40,718! :confused: "Houston, we have a problem."

I'm betting that population went up during that time as well. I'd further speculate that most of the population increase occurred in more pro-issue rural counties, and that there was probably some migration within the state away from anti-issue regions towards pro-issue regions. Both of those effects suggest a problem worse than just the bare statistics.

Anybody have a population data base by county and year they want to intigrate into the CCW numbers?

Interesting CA AW doc there, too - as of July 2006 77,103 people had registered 166,424 weapons. They note * Assault weapon registrations for the general public were no longer accepted as of January 2001. However, active Peace Officers can still register assault weapons.

Is there any legal basis for this statement, other than the one where an officer gets a dept letter to acquire one for on duty, and perhaps off-duty use?

I know an LEO who is able to buy a correctly configured (not some silly non-pistol grip or fixed mag) AR rifle complete with all of the hi-cap mags he wants through his department... and yes he can finance it through payroll deduction. I'm not going to name the department, but from what I understand it is a very common thing not limited to any one department. I told him he was a complete bastard and that he had better let me shoot the thing! ;)

I think that creating this kind of "elite" class of citizen is just horrible. Off duty he is just another citizen with no special need for an "Assault Weapon" at home. Just another way to create an "us against them" scenario.

2003-2006 the numbers drop off considerably in every county except Orange.

Could this be considered a conspiracy?

That's pretty significant, down about 5% to my eyes.
I've heard of some people being denied on renewals in some areas.
I wonder if any CLEO's are not renewing/issuing to their cronies and contributors like the used to.
Though the public doesn't care, I think a bit more scrutiny has been put on the process in recent years.

That and the outright never issue CLEO's out there; I think their number is increasing.

How many of those were FFLs with CCWs? How many CA FFLs have we lost?

Maybe it is my overworked and addled brain, but that column of numbers does not foot. I'm getting 38,113 for 2006.

I'm not gonna check the others for now.

Also notice it says by COUNTY. That means all the permits issued by local PDs (the big secret) are (or should be) included in that report. The Sheriff's numbers may have gone down more than what we think because of that.

How many municipalities in L.A. County?

Are these stats total number of CCW in the county? Or are they total number approved for that year?
