Where do Texas LTC-holders live?

Ever wonder where LTC (License To Carry, formerly CHL – Concealed Handgun License) holders in Texas actually live?

The San Antonio Express News wrote an article with an interactive map to facilitate viewing where LTC holders 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.
