Mainly the yellow states are states in which even today you can go to prison on a felony for carrying a "loaded handgun." My guess is that this factor suppresses the number of folks who carry a loaded handgun.

Maine I am not so sure about, but every other yellow state is very restrictive as a matter of criminal law. Most of them still do not "shall issue" licenses today, even after Bruen. It is an intentionally burdensome process to apply in these states, and they have many places off limits to carry, or are in the process of enacting more places off limits to carry. They are hostile environments for those who would carry a loaded gun for protection. Simply put, you have to worry more about the government harming you in those states than criminals harming you.
