Between 2009 and 2018, Utah's gun sales grew by 80.4%, according to the FBI study.
Despite having the fastest growth, Utah is ranked 16th in the nation for total gun sales per person in 2018 with 82.8 sales per 100,000 residents.
Washington D.C. actually had the highest percentage with a whopping 643.2% growth in the past decade, but D.C. also had the lowest gun sales per person meaning any gun sale will cause the percentage to spike, which it did.
Other states that saw the fastest growth:
- New Hampshire - 72.1%
- Illinois - 71.2%
- Delaware - 59.3%
- Vermont - 59.2%
- Maine - 55.8%
Other stats from the report show Utah is tied for the seventh-highest rate of suicide by gun.
