    LTCFs issued (2004-18) [graphic]

    Long-gun Transfers (2004-18) [graphic]
    LTCFs by County (Alphabetical)
    LTCFs by County Rank (% high to low)

    Note that LTCF statistics are not adjusted for revocations, deaths or issuance to out-of-state residents due to lack of any available records.

    On that long gun transfer chart, you want to grab that blue bar and pull it way up there to account for all the guns I bought/sold from 2007 on...

    Am I reading this correctly? Every other person in Potter County (over 21) has a LTCF? Every fourth person in Wayne Co.?

    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%.

    PSA for everyone: don't transfer long guns. Make confiscation more difficult.

    Urban culture has a police presence, rural does not. Out in the boonies (population density 100-125 per square mile, or less), it's rare enough to see a state trooper or municipal police officer on patrol, and calling one for assistance generally takes time.

    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.

    Didn't they use to publish revocations by county as well? I swear I recall seeing such data, and wondering if the small number in my county (under 10 if I recall) for 2007 included my own, even though it was actually overturned in early 2008.

    Chester and Delware counties are just about the same with both just shy of 9%. That's no surprise with they way both counties have turned into blues state hell holes over the past two decades. The city trash moving out to the suburbs and semi rural areas and turning those areas into trash too.
    Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
