I’m surprised by those stats. Houston can be a pretty rough town but compared to Chicago they look like Mayberry RFD.
Here in H-Town, lots of us are licensed to carry concealed, and we do. There are very few “gun free zones”.
Sprinkling concealed-carry citizens throughout the general population assures that thugs (i.e. Democratic voters) never know who is armed and who isn’t. So, since thugs are basically cowardly Pieces of Sh!t, they are not quite so bold as they are in Chiraq, where no one is armed except their partners in mayhem.
