30.3% of handgun owners carried a handgun in the last 30 days according to a study from the American Public Health Association.  Of that 30.3% the average number of days of carry were 18 and 38.3% of the 30.3% who carried carried every day.

https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/10.2105/AJPH.2022.307094

The article went on to say that that 30.3% represents 16 million people and that number is up 6 million from the 9 million who carried once a month in 2015.  And the 38.3% of the 30.3% who carry everyday, that's up from 3 million to 6 million since 2015...double.

This study was funded by the anti-gun Joyce Foundation out of Chicago.  Obama was on the Joyce Foundation board of directors before those without understanding elected him as president.

I believe it comes from the civil unrest and that our government spends half its time fanning the flames of unrest, and the other half telling us we can't protect ourselves.  People are fed up with the ruling class, aware of the unrest and dangers, and ready to tell the Anti crowd "**** you, and the horse you rode in on!"
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.
