    Wow, these are some pretty interesting statistics; thanks for posting this tl_3237. It's good to know what percentage of the eligible population is licensed to carry in your county.

    I'll be rolling off the oldest Metric threads so that only the last 5 years are stickied.

    What would be nice would be billboards, both entering and leaving the Commonwealth at the various state borders, showing something like the following:

    PENNSYLVANIANS LICENSED TO CARRY - 1,272,408
    NEW JERSEYITES LICENSED TO CARRY - 1,600

    WHO IS SAFER FROM CRIMINALS?

    Interesting (sad, but interesting) to note that 5 of the 6 lowest percentage counties are the 5-county Philadelphia area, and the 6th (Lehigh) is just outside it.

    One wonders how much of this is due to personal politics (people who don't want and/or can't get one) and how much is due to the Sheriffs/GPU...

    I saw that too and had the same thoughts. Is it because of the Sheriffs, personal politics, or is it because people in the large metros have a false sense of security, and think that the police will protect them?

    The explanation is simple. That is the heaviest liberal voting area of the state. Liberals tend to be anti-gun, so why would they have a LTCF?

    That is what I was thinking also. Of course the opposite is true for the rural counties. I bet their would be a direct correlation between Trump voters and LTCF percentages.

    ^^^^ THIS

    I (we) in Chester County have a very 2A friendly sheriff in Bunny Welsh but, alas, only 8.2% of Chestonians have an LTCF.

    In Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, the availability of police for any incident is staggering compared to the more rural parts of the Commonwealth. If the one or two state troopers on duty at three in the morning are on the opposite side of the county, one might well wait a while until someone shows up. No police presence = more dependence on one's own guns.
