History of CHL in Texas:

During the 2001 Texas Legislative Session, there was just one bill directly related to concealed-carry.  It appeared to be rather insignificant on its face, but it had a huge impact on how concealed-carry was viewed by the public,  the legislature and political activists.

Concealed-Carry Bills & Documents Cited in this Episode's History of CHL in Texas:

  • HB2784 - Reporting of criminal convictions of CHLs and the general public.

Women & Guns:

Teaching women how to shoot must be approached differently than teaching men.  Women are often better shooters than men, but they can be easily discoraged if the instructor doesn't teach the way they learn.
