    So, even if the residents don't have LTCFs, you can rest assured that many still have at least a rifle or shotgun in their home.
    Having had three separate bears in my yard just a few days ago, I understand this intimately.

    I'm more surprised by this data as the last set that I saw must have included the entire population and not just over 21/eligible for LTCF. The last data that I saw showed 1:9 for Potter. This data is MUCH, MUCH better!

    I vaguely remember seeing it many, many years ago in a different source and only at the state level but don't recall it being included in the PSP report.

    They did many years ago. It was published by the PSP along with the data of the number of LTCF issued and firearm transfers.

    If this is correct, I'd say it is a glowing report on the difference between rural and urban culture as it pertains to criminal vs. lawful gun use. At least if you compare it to Philly's 3.6%.
    Does my heart good to see the county (Wayne) I was born, raised, and got my first LTCF (1986) in, showing so well!

    As for my current county, and my former state (I cant remember the % for New Castle County, DE, but it was very, very small when I got mine in 1991), let's just say those people just don't "represent" as well.
