Half Of This County’s Residents Are Carrying Something Liberals Hate

American Patriot Daily

Over 16 million Americans are now legally permitted to carry concealed firearms, a 265 percent increase in ten years, a new report states. 

But one county in particular is leading the way.

“During President Obama’s administration, the number of concealed handgun permits soared to over 16.36 million – a 256% increase since 2007,” a new report by John Lott’s Crime Prevention Resource Center reveals.

“Last year, the number of permit holders grew by a record 1.83 million. This is more than the previous record increase of 1.73 million, set just the year before. Each of the last four years that we have been recording this data has set a new record,” Lott notes.
But nowhere in America is concealed carry more popular than in Potter County, Pennsylvania.

There, 50.3 percent of all adults hold a concealed carry permit, the highest rate of licensed carry in any county in the United States.

Its rate of concealed carry permits blows away, figuratively speaking, the rest of the state.
The next closest counties were McKean (34.6%), Warren (34.6%), Cameron (31.3%), and Armstrong (30.1%).

Residents couldn’t be more proud.  Comments left on a local news blog, “Solomon’s Words,” proved locals were thrilled. Read more...

I am a gun carrying liberal. I don't think, this is something to be proud of. Might as well tell people, watch your house. When you leave, break in and steal your guns. At 50% the odds are good.

I still don't understand why this is a proud moment in Potter County! This means over half the people you meet on the street could pull out a gun and shoot you, and you're proud of that. That says that with all the nuts running around here, and take a good look around you, any one of two carry something that will kill immediately. No wonder I hate it here. Would move if there was any way of doing So! 50.3%!

How will they steal your gun by breaking into your house when you are carrying it with you?

Sorry to tell you, but carrying a gun has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative or political party affiliation.

I have to disagree with the last part of the article that states we don't care about the environment. Many of us are fighting to protect what we have here against the big corporations that are trying to destroy our lives so they can increase their wealth.

Signed,

Another gun carrying liberal that votes for Democrats.

I think it is something to keep to yourself. You don't need to share everything with the public.

Of course you'd have something stupid to say. You're a liberal! It's called a gun safe. Don't shoot your eye out.

You're exactly right, being a gun carrying liberal is surely not something to be proud of. You want it both ways, to protect you and yours but deny that right to others. Sounds just like a clintonite or an obamaite. I'm sure that if they did another survey they would find that more than one person in the home knows how to use a firearm so potential burglars be wary, be very wary, the Castle Doctrine is pretty plain and easy to understand and that very easily could ruin a burglars whole week.

Clickbait title only and no basis in reality. The source of this article is a right-wing rag. Did they bother to survey liberals on their opinions before coming up with that title? Most liberals don't opposed concealed carry or the ownership of guns, they just want it done in the safest manner possible.

Daryl Coonhound said...

What's with the clickbait title? "Liberals" also don't much care for ignorance and bigotry. A large portion of this county's residents seem to carry that around as well.

I am staunch Second Amendment guy but the elected sheriff should not have the political advocacy (NRA and Pa. Firearm Owners Assn.) links on his website. Keep the politics out of a public website Glenn.

Anonymous said...

Not all people have multiple guns. Some only have their personal defense weapon. Concealed carry usually means that handgun will not be in the house when they are not home.

Mr. Front Porch said...

Carrying and the Castle Doctrine are the reasons Life/Limb & property are protected in this area.

Anonymous said...

What a ridiculous title. I am also a carrying liberal as are all of my friends. Turn off FOX News and the NRA. We in the left don't want to take your guns away. The NRA's survival depends on them making you think we do. Stop generalizing. My guess is that there are no liberals in the KKK but I don't assume you are racist because you are a Republican. Stop doing the same to us.

It says the people have permits not that they have a lot of guns .

"That means over half the people you meet on the street could pull out a gun and shoot you"

No Captain glass half empty, it means that Half the people you meet on the street are safely exercising their 2nd amendment rights. How many shootings have you had there? Now how many have they had in Chicago? Granted the comparison is weak, The fact that more people are carrying firearms than you know about, just means that not everyone carrying a firearm is a "nut". It means most people who've chosen to carry a firearm are responsible. This should be confidence building....but we can't show support of responsible firearm possession and bludgeon through a false rhetoric that everyone with a gun is a "nut"

I think its great. I read comments that imply the glass is half empty but I see it as half full. Only thing better would be a full glass. 100% participation

Maybe all the permits means low crime rate. Criminals will stalk elsewhere.

American Patriot Daily is, of course, wrong on just about assumption. First and foremost, all Democrats aren't "liberals". "Liberals" don't hate guns or concealed carry. I am a Democrat who believes in concealed carry rights, even though I don't choose to exercise them personally. I also believe in common sense gun laws where we don't hand a firearm to every person who wants one, nor should we allow everyone to carry a concealed firearm. There should be mandatory firearm training. There should be a test that comes with licensing, and people who choose to own or carry a handgun should be required to pass a mental competency test, not be spousal abuser or felon and should be insured. That way when they shoot someone and are sent to prison for it, the victim or the victim's family is made whole. Aside from those requirements, I (and most other reasonable folks) believe in the 2nd Amendment. However, these extremist groups, who eerily like to call themselves "patriots" as if people who disagree with them aren't patriotic, believe that everyone in America from birth to death should be armed with AK47's and should be able to use them anytime they want for any reason they want. Perhaps we should be taking a closer look at them instead of the other way around.

How can the Potter County Sheriff have those two political ads for the NRA and the Firearms Owners' Association on the county website? Is he in charge of the county website? It's okay to have that on his own Facebook page or anything else personal like a bumper sticker on his own vehicle but putting those ads on the county's website is not appropriate. Can I use the county website to solicit donations to my favorite organizations like Republican National Committee or Harley Owners Group of America?

There are so many good folks living in this county, and also those owning camps.Most camps we know have extended family and also friends,who gather to make great memories and certainly boost our economy. Perhaps some do not hunt or carry any weapon, but who they vote for or if they vote is THEIR choice and not our business.The same for residents. MANY folks,like us, do not talk politics,but choose to vote and deserve respect without being labeled. Members and visitors gather at churches ,support town events, perhaps are carrying but not known to us. I WOULD BE GRATEFUL AND THANKFUL if one of them could safely defend the innocent - if someone is ready to harm others.....And who would care what political party they back?? It is not for us to judge....thank you for considering my opinion. ANNE

When I saw the headline that over half the county carries it, I assumed it was a story about excess body fat.

Why in the world make this a political subject? That is just stupid! We are Democrat,have always owned guns,& have pistol permits,SO WHAT? And to say Potter County is the highest in carrying,that too IS JUST STUPID!!!! SO WHAT???

The murder rate by all those bad guns in Potter County must be astronomical! Must be all those Trump-voting conservatives are keeping the murder statistics under wraps. Murderous, bad guns!

It's not the NRA membership site! Those websites are educational materials for gun owners....Which is completely appropriate for a county sheriff website, as people who know what the laws are, are statistically less likely to violate them.

I watch fox news!! They tell it like it is!! They don't lie!! Why do people think they have to lie? It isn't that hard to tell the truth. Remember that God is in control not any of you!! The Devil wants you to think that!!

Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

By the way, 8:37, the KKK was the Democrat Party. Al Gore's dad and
Bob Byrd were prime examples: They fought against civil rights just like the other democrats since before and after the Civil War. Maybe that's why they want to destroy all the Civil War Monuments and flags. "Out of sight out of mind" so their democrat truths won't be seen.

Some people want all guns to be "Smart Guns". Besides being financially out of reach for most people, the technology is very flawed.

I am from Poter county and moving back in a week. Alot has changed up there since 2010. But If I am going to go on a hike. Go in to woods to set up or check tree stands. Maintain food plots. Working. Whatever... As long as there is 600lb black bears coyotes and possible mountain lions and other types of "predictors" I recommend everyone or atleast a trust worthy person of the group to carry. And you have to have a permit. Just because there are alot of permits doesn't mean everyone is carrying. It's the people that is not registered that people should worry about carrying firearms. I love Potter county and can't wait to be back ��

And don't forget about the Big Foot in the area, but I don't think there is a handgun big enough to take down one of them.

Exercising your 2nd amendment right has nothing to do with political affiliation. This conservative vs liberal/Republican vs Democrat/right wing vs left wing alignment only serves to further divide our nation. Also, Fox lies, CNN lies, all of it is political opinion. Not news

Slick Willy B said...

First of all...having a concealed carry permit isn't required to own a gun...period. Any non-felon can own a pistol and open-carry it. You also don't need a permit to own and carry a long gun or shotgun. I would say that the percentage of gun ownership in the county would be higher than 50% by far.
