    My post about OC in Texas and some things you guys were saying got me thinking about responsibility and CC. Surprisingly, to me, my state keeps records of convictions in various degrees of crimes and then of those individual crime convictions displays the number that were CHL holders. Here is the link that posts records in .pdf format for 2002-2006. Interesting stuff to browse through if you have a few minutes.

    You guys that live in CC friendly states have anything like this? I think these numbers speak directly to responsibility and gun ownership.

    For example: 2006 there were 328 murder convictions and only 1 was a CHL holder. 61,539 total various convictions of which only 140 were currently licensed CHL holders.

    Seriously interesting stuff.

    VA doesn't keep stats because the number is so insignificant :rofl:

    I honestly think the only reason these are kept is to keep the anti-gun folks in check with real solid numbers. Plus with as large as we are it makes sense.

    I've looked through a few times before and they are pretty interesting.

    I only wish they had record of how many CHL holders there were/are at the time.

    There is another page that lists active CHL holders. :bigthumb:

    I'm thinking of making a thread in the main forum...

    I remember reading that CHL holders have a lower crime rate than even the police.
