Few Kansans who hold a concealed-carry gun permit have been charged with a firearm-related crime, statistics show.
Of the 51,078 permits issued in Kansas since the law took effect in 2007, just 44 permit holders were charged with a crime committed while using a firearm, according to records from the Kansas attorney general’s office.
The Wichita Eagle reported that works out to one charge for every 1,161 permit holders, or 0.09 percent.
This correlates with statistics from other states. CCW permit holders commit fewer crimes than the general population at large.
