Concealed carry applications, defensive gun uses soaring in Philly as fears of crime intensify – Bearing Arms

Fox News is touting a 600% increase in the number of concealed carry licenses issued by the Philadelphia police between 2020 and 2021, though a big reason for that increase is the fact that the city actually shut down the department’s Gun Licensing Division for much of 2020, which prevented any and all applicants from receiving their permit.

It took a lawsuit before city officials finally backed off of their bureaucratic carry ban, but in the months since many residents are clearly embracing their right to bear arms in self-defense.

That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given the fact that the City of Brotherly Love is currently in the midst of a huge crime spike that’s saw the city set a new record for the number of homicides last year. And as the Philadelphia Inquirer reports today, as the number of armed citizens increases, so too are the number of defensive gun uses by law-abiding gun owners.
