Overview Of Seven States
We looked at crime statistics for the following states to give us an overall picture of crime in the United States; Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Although this list does not cover the entire US it is representative of all the US states. States that are not listed will have statistics that do not vary greatly from the data published on this page. Data covering concealed carry permit holders crime statistics is not readily available for a large number of states. You need to take into account that the person charged or convicted did not necessarily have a firearm. Some of these felonies can be a traffic offense in some states. In fact the vast majority of the cases below probably do not involve a handgun. Another point is that if a permit holder did use a handgun in justifiable self defense he would still likely be charged by the police while they sort out the facts.
