Study: Rise in Concealed-Carry Permits Biggest Among Black Women

“The biggest growth in the number of Americans obtaining permits to carry a concealed firearm since 2000 has been among black women, according to a recent study from the Crime Prevention Research Center.

Data collected by CPRC indicates that the rate of increase in concealed carry among black women was 2.22 times higher than that of white females across the country from 2000 to 2016.

The largest growth was experienced in Texas, where the Department of Public Safety documents the race and gender of registered gun owners, with an increase from one percent to 11 percent within that frame.”
