Ever wonder where LTC (License To Carry, formerly CHL – Concealed Handgun License) holders in Texas actually live?
As you might guess, most of the holders naturally fall where there’s the most concentration of people – cities. Nothing really odd about the distribution.
And yes Austin – lots of people in and around Austin are licensed.
The article seems to be based upon a database published by mySA.com, but that’s just numbers (enter zip code, get numbers). The map is certainly better for visualization.
I find it interesting that we’re just shy of 1,000,000 license holders. Every time I look at this number it’s increased, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
Otherwise, the article is a poor one. It jams a bunch of unrelated “gun news” into a single article.
But the map is kinda cool to play with.
