Probably a response to crime more than anything. It only makes sense that more people want to be armed when they know there's a good possibility of becoming a victim. If you thought you were at high risk of a home invasion, you'd want to protect yourself and your family members.

The biggest contributing factor is the level of conservatism and persistent strong hold they have on the area. In that part of the state they’re anti-book smart and business. It’s the one-thing liberals and conservatives can agree on in the area.
I had a long time well known resident of Redding tell me it will always be an $8.00 an hour town with a view. I liked the area, but politically and economically the area is garbage for anyone who wants to work and do well.

This isn't the first time that Redding has made the list of most violent cities in the US, btw. In 2011 Redding was #1 when Police Chief Hanson was in charge. 3 years later with Chief Paoletti, a Stockton import who was brought in to "clean up the town", things have certainly not improved.
