Throughout the nation, the trend over the last few years has been to make it easier and easier to get a concealed carry permit. As a result, people feel safer in those states, especially those who understand that criminals have been carrying guns regardless of the laws since the dawn of time.
However, it seems that not every state wants to go along with that trend. Especially California, who is in a battle with New York for who wants to be considered the most anti-gun state in the country.
