The Great State of Texas

The Truth About Guns reports on the concealed carry situation in the Lone Star State.

Total number of active CHL licenses (including instructors): 404,795 souls, or roughly 2.25% of all [documented] Lone Star State residents.

That sounds like a high percentage to me. How would that compare to places like Arizona with their new law, I wonder?

Do you think Texas is safer because of all the concealed carry permit holders? Do you think it would be even better off if they'd adopt a policy like Arizona's?

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. Nope. Not enough guns. And not enough guns in the hands of the people who really need them: minorities.

  2. Robert, Thanks for the opinion. But, don't you worry about some of your fellow gun owners? Don't you think the more of them there are, the more trouble you have from the unfit ones, not to mention the more gun flow you'll have to the criminals?

  3. Statistically, the biggest threat to your life is the person who doesn't have a concealed carry permit, not the one who does.
