Texas Concealed Handgun Licenses

The Tribune analyzed Texas Department of Public Safety data on concealed handgun license issuance during 2009. These thematic maps show a county-by-county breakdown of the total number of licenses issued and the per-capita licensing rate. The latter figure is a more accurate measure for the proportion of residents who received licenses. Darker colors represent higher totals and rates.
