In South Dakota, even though CCW permits are Shall issue after a $10 state fee maybe 2 people in ten have one. I've lived in this state for years and only met 1 guy who has one besides myself. Lots of people here own guns, but few here see the need or point in carrying one everywhere.

For all the screaming and teeth knashing about "gunfights in the street" , the reality of shall issue life is that maybe 20% of the population will go the trouble to get a permit. Up here the only requirements are $10 and a clean criminal record, and you'd think everyone and their dog would have a CCW. Funny enough that's not the case.
The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be.
The more subsidies you have, the less self reliant people will be.

The 1911 may have been in wars for 100 years, but Masetro Bartolomeo Beretta was arming the world 400 years before John Browning was ever a wet dream.
