Texas: One Million Concealed Carry Holders and Counting

They say everything is bigger in Texas and the state just topped one million concealed carry permit holders. 

As of early May 2016, Texas has reached more than one million citizens licensed to carry a gun – or 1,017,618 to be exact.

Not surprisingly, the number one reason people in the Lone Star State and across the country are pursuing concealed carry permits is for self-defense purposes.

Florida is still the reigning champion for the most concealed carry holders in any state with over 1.3 million.

Texas has been a concealed carry state since the 1990s. It wasn't until 2015 open carry of handguns became legal.
