The Texas Department of Public Safety published a list of crimes committed in Texas in 2011 by everyone convicted and by those convicted who also held CCL’s. The bottom line: Concealed carry permit holders commit less than 1% of the crimes. If you want to be exact, they committed two tenths of one percent of the crimes in 2011. And not all of those involved firearms or violence.
The data show that 63,679 people were convicted of a long list of crimes. Of those 63 thousand, only 120 were CCL holders.
Year old, but not sure I shared it.
