Even before…Obama…I concealed carried; but I finally applied for and received my concealed carry permit. Never thought about needing one until Obama was elected for a second term.
When I applied there were about 6 people ahead of me; two males and four females. Out of curiosity, when they got to me I ask the Sheriff’s Deputy if applications for concealed carry permit were increasing. His reply was “since Obama became president application are up over 200% over before his election.” Then I inquired about the percentage of male vs female; his response was “applications by females about 60%”.
I am sure those percentages have increased since and most likely will increase again, as more corruption and scandals are uncovered.
