Potter County Leads Nation In Concealed Carry Permits

Potter County in north central Pennsylvania, which calls itself "God's Country" due to the abundance of open space, wildlife, and fishable waterways, leads the way with 50.3 percent of adults having a permit.

There are four counties in Pennsylvania that have between 30% and 50% of their adult populations with concealed handgun permits: Potter (50.3%), McKean (34.6%), Warren (34.6%), Cameron (31.3%), and Armstrong (30.1%).  More...http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/concealed-gun-permits-hit-record-16-million-50-rate-in-pa-county/article/2629324

80% of Potter County voters voted against HC. Maybe it's Liberals we're arming ourselves against?

"THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BARE ARMS WILL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON" Proud to be in that percentile!

I've carried a gun in Potter County for almost 50 Years, even professionally and never had a problem.

Apparently 12:37 didn't read the Washington Examiner news story. It appears Potter County is arming itself against Trump and his crazy initiatives, not Liberals. Have been proud concealed carry "Liberal" for over a decade.

You know the saying, "An armed society is a polite society"? Our manners must be right up there with those of the hoity-toity bunch! :)

it's Keep and Bear Arms, not Bare arms. I wouldn't have mentioned it, but it's part of the Constitution and all, so it's fairly important.

When half the people u approach might be carrying a weapon, wouldn't u think hard about trying something foolish

Ha Ha Haaaa 231, a liberal carrying a gun? I don't believe you. That would be like a conservative eating tofu and wearing pink undies. besides, there is no such thing as a proud liberal.

I bare arms... Welcome to the gun show !

I conceal and carry because I don't trust a single soul anymore. We've got druggies and people killing just because the "feel" like it. You best believe I'm gonna have my weapon with me. Has nothing at all to do with people's frigging political view. Just look at some of the comments you read on here. Some people are just plain rude. I'm protecting my family. In the end their the only ones that matter to me on this earth. Doesn't seem to me anyone has anything nice to say anymore. What has this world come to?

Lol at the people who say they carry for protection. Half of you people in Potter who carry for "safety" reasons or to "protect your family" think nothing about leaving your car unattended with the doors unlocked, your keys and pocketbooks in them, or even worse your KIDS; or leaving your house doors unlocked when you're not even home. A gun ain't gonna be of much use then, is it? But yet, you feel the need to carry a gun to feel safe because of all the "crime"? I'm not sure of the REAL reason, but it sure as hell ain't to feel safe. I call BS. Maybe you carry because it makes you feel BIG, and even worse, some of you just carry as a status symbol. Plain and simple. By thy way, I'm not a liberal (and I wear pink panties), I voted for Trump and I absolutely believe in the right to bear arms. But I also know BS when I smell it.

Admit your mistake! said...

Haha. All you foolish trump supporters. How's that working out for you? There was a reason that it was mainly the lower middle class, uneducated people who voted for him. Some people were just too plain ??? to see the truth. Everyone makes mistakes, but smart people realize it, they correct it and they don't continue down that same foolish path. I know, you all are smarter than: World Leaders? Business professionals? Business owners? Former presidents? Congressman? Senators? Governors? HOW ABOUT JUST PLAIN NORMAL PEOPLE WITH AN IQ HIGHER THAN 80 THAT SAW THROUGH HIS FACADE? This isn't about Barack Obama or Hillary or Geo. Bush I and II or Bill Clinton. Unfortunately, the American voters were left with not much choice. It is now about a lying, hypocritical, thieving, narcissistic person who has to have his daughter and son in law read and comprehend the written word for him. He has bullied and lied his way through life, stiffed employees and contractors from their deserved paychecks, he has cost creditors BILLIONS, he has bankrupted multiple businesses, he has mocked the disabled, he has alienated every one of our long standing world allies, he has robbed charities. he has one goal in life, enrich himself and he doesn't care how he does it or who he hurts. Do you still want to support him? A lot of comments on here about people being crazy. Anyone who calls themselves a Christian would be a downright crazy hypocrite to still support someone like that.
Signed, A FORMER GOP member and a proud gun owner! The HYPOCRITICAL RIGHT WING Christian conservatives are being sold down the river by trump and company. Jump ship while you still can. Admit your mistake and move on. Most importantly, remind your elected reps that they will pay the price in the midterm elections if they continue to try to preserve their place in the Republican party, rather than stand up for their country which is under assault from within. Encourage them to enact the 25th amendment allowing Congress to remove a president who CANNOT CARRY OUT HIS DUTIES.

You rednecks would shit your pants if you walked through a real crime ridden neighborhood.

10:05, how I love you. Not a single misspelled or misused word! Just intelligent, informed truth that, unfortunately, will probably fall on deaf ears in this "red" area of the world. Small comfort, however, to those of us who do hear and agree with the majority of Americans who sit in horror watching this shit-storm destroy our country's credibility and threaten the entire planet with the administration's blind focus on the almighty dollar. The only thing more important than $ to that buffoon in the White House is his ego. Wake up, folks. There is no shame in being misled - just in being too stubborn to admit your mistake.

Poster 11:13 AM.... Take a stroll through Hells Kitchen in NYC at 2:00 AM... You would be out gunned by EVERY individual on the street and they wouldn`t be the least bit intimidated by your carry permit or your fully loaded 6 shooter. LOL

Obama proved to be worthless, weak and ignorant. Hillary would have been almost as bad. Thank God we elected President Trump, our only hope.

That's your mistake. There's no liberals and conservatives. Dump the labels and quit fighting amongst ourselves.

Anonymous said...

I say most people do it because it's their right to bear arms. Period. Good for those that do. Whatever their reasons.

Wow. That was uncalled for.

Sad, I think, that so many people have to resort to political sessions regardless of the news!
In my opinion, this info says much about the HONESTY of God's Country folks who although Potter County is the least populous, I think, in the Commonwealth, are willing to purchase the permit for Concealed Carry instead of just doing it without the permit, making God's Country #1 in the Commonwealth by % of those who've purchased Concealed Carry Permits. Makes me proud to be a God's Country native!

Diana Pierce said...

I had no idea, 50% is quite impressive. God's country has been invaded by outsiders threatening our way of life. Maybe if they know to step lightly, crime will be less, making a safer place to live as well as visit.
