Oh, boy! Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva says he is willing to increase the number of concealed carry permits he issues by 400%. Sounds impressive, eh? Good news for gun owners in the state’s most heavily populated county.
Not really. That would bring permits up from 19.3 per million residents to 96.5 per million.
For comparison, the state of Georgia is somewhere around 71,428 licenses per million. Another way to put is that the permitted percentage of the Los Angeles County population would increase from 0.0019% to a whopping 0.0096%.
