According to a study conducted by the Crime Prevention Research Center in July 2014, 11.1 million Americans have permits to carry concealed weapons. Florida has the highest number of active carry concealed weapons permits with nearly 1 million people. In California people are allowed to carry concealed weapons without a license if they believe they are in grave danger, with a restraining order that’s been issued for their defense. The state doesn’t require a permit to own a gun; however it does require a carry concealed weapons permit. Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming don’t require a permit to carry a loaded weapon in public.
