Concealed Millions — 1 Comment

  1. Hey, one thing you have not mentioned in your articles anywhere is that many, many more people may carry firearms in Texas than will show up in statistics. And the reason is Texas’ Motorist Protection Act (2009, HB 1815).

    This act allows you to carry a concealed weapon in your car as long as you meet 4 conditions:

    The handgun must NOT be in plain view; it must be concealed.
    You are NOT engaged in criminal activity (excluding Class C traffic misdemeanors)
    Federal law does NOT prohibit you from possessing a firearm.
    You are NOT a member of a criminal gang.

    A License to Carry is not required for someone to go anywhere in the State, including down to the local grocery store, with a gun in his car in Texas (as of 2009), so there are many more handguns available in Texas to the general public on the streets OUTSIDE THE HOME than will show up in these studies. In case that was no common knowledge, I just thought I’d pass that along to you.
