    If Stacy Abrams gets whiff of this study, I guarantee you she will tone down her anti-liberty rhetoric with regard to self-defense rights.

    I'd bet 10 to 1 odds that her advisers have already told her to cool it with the gun-grabber talk.

    AJC, are you listening? Please use my full name of Phillip Evans when you quote me, okay?

    Nope.

    Since the political position isn't based on logic, there is no justification to change the position based on published statistics. That part of her political platform, as most of it, is based off of irrational fear. With the employment and economy doing so well, you need to find something else to strike fear in the voters to get them to the polls and to vote for you.

    2017 numbers per the FBI NICS check for Permits is at the same link.

    Approximately 202,419

    ***These numbers are really hard to read on the computer screen bc of the font size. I could be reading some of the numbers wrong. Also, these numbers hardly ever match up with the numbers from the Probate Court Year Reports.......which take years to be published.***

    We might be approaching a point where 1 in 6 adults ages 21+ possess a GWL.

    Those are significant numbers to talk to legislators about.

    Yeah, it's a lot of people. And you have to assume that a similar percentage of the 18-20 year olds are pro-gun, just not old enough to get the GWL. But they're old enough to vote, and to vote against a person who campaigns on preventing them from ever exercising their Second Amendment and self-defense rights.

    I wonder if the Democrat push for open borders is helping to fuel the increase in carry licenses.

    It wouldn't be surprising. Obama was one of the best gun and ammo salesmen ever. And I saw a story today on Fox that Democrats are trying to stop ICE from being informed when illegal immigrants undergo a background check when attempting to purchase firearms (I guess it is ok for illegal immigrants to own firearms, just no legal citizens...).

    The Georgia Courts reporting has been terrible the last couple years it seems they have published 2017 & 2018 reports, so i will look at the numbers and update the thread.
    s

    Scratch that...........I can not find where they have put the yearly reports. They have redone the courts reporting website and none of the old links work, and I cannot find where they have them now.

    Got an email from GeorgiaCourts explaining why we can't see the case load numbers.

    Hi Mr. Moore,

    Aimee forwarded your email to me as she is out of town today. A part of the Georgia Courts system was has been hacked and those reports are down. We do hope to get them back up but we do not have a time frame at this time.
