    Need a favor. Does anyone have a link or links to concealed carry stats for Oregon, specifically number of CHL's per capita and arrest records for CHL holders vs. the general public? Thanks in advance.

    Find a copy of John R. Lott Jr.'s book More Guns Less Crime, 3rd edition, and check his notes/bibliography. I know there are tables with some Oregon info in there, not too current date wise though if I recall correctly. Check, page 79 3rd edition has Oregon stats from 92-97 for total permits issued. You're in Corvallis, make use of the OSU library. :)

    Or try these guys (from Lott's notes): Oregon State Police - Law Enforcement Data Systems Contact Us

    Huh - that's only 4%. I thought it would've been more common.

    WA is over 360,000 last heard, I would think OR would be similar. OR has one advantage over WA in that you can unlicensed carry loaded in a car, and one disadvantage, the local government can regulate unlicensed carry.
