What Percentage Of  Tennessee Residents Have A
 Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit?

The higher the population in a county, the higher the number of Handgun Carry Permits in that county.  However, this does not mean that the majority of the county residents have a Handgun Carry Permit.  If you look at Davidson County, that county has a large number of active resient Handgun Carry Permits 23,083.  However, only 5% of the adult population have a Handgun Carry Permit. Compare this to some of the smaller counties like DeKalb County with 1,633 resdent Handgun Carry Permits, but a adult % with active Handgun Carry Permits of 12 %. 

LegallyArmed.com decided it was time to see the percentage of  Handgun Carry Permit in every Tennessee County. If you have a firearm related website and you find this data interesting, we ask that you link to this page versus just copying & posting the data on you website.  We ask the same from the media.  We work hard to supply data and information we believe is important.  Thank you for your cooperation.

How did we come up with the percentages?  We took the current population census data.  We deducted all the county residents under age 18.  We then devided the active Handgun Carry Permits by the number of adults in the county.  This gives the closest count as to the percentage within each county.  Here are the results:
