Factors that May Contribute to the Difference in Crime Statistics Between Texas LTC and Non-LTC Holders

In order to obtain an LTC in the state of Texas, an individual must pass a background check and meet certain eligibility requirements. This background check is designed to deter individuals with a criminal record from obtaining an LTC. Additionally, LTC holders are also required to undergo training and education to ensure they are knowledgeable and responsible in their use of a firearm. This further separates LTC holders from non-LTC holders. Finally, LTC holders may have a greater perception of risk and responsibility than non-LTC holders, which could contribute to the lower crime statistics among LTC holders.
