LEAGUE CITY, Tx. - We knew Texans loved their guns, but we didn`t know just how many of them congregated around Houston. Turns out, 4 of the 5 areas in Texas with the most Concealed Handgun Licenses are just outside Houston.
Katy, Spring and Cypress take spots 5, 3, and 2, but topping out at number 1 - League City, specifically zip code 77573 where 4,822 Concealed Handgun Licenses are on record with the state.
Statistics on convictions by CHL holders are kept by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The law CHL holders were convicted of most in 2014 was Assault Causing Bodily Injury of a Family Member, which is disgusting, but not a gun related crime.
Texas is just short of a million at 937,419 CHL holders, and it`s growing every year. As far as open carry, it`s gone off without much of a bang. Let`s just hope it stays that way.
