The purpose of this article is to compare crime statistics between Texas Licence To Carry (LTC) holders and non-LTC holders for assault on security officers in 2020. Assault on security officers is defined as “intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with a security officer engaged in the performance of a duty that the actor knows or should reasonably believe the security officer is performing and the physical contact is offensive or provocative”.

It is important to examine the relationship between LTC holders and crime statistics as LTC holders are often considered to be law-abiding citizens. By studying the crime statistics between the two groups, we can gain a better understanding of this relationship and its implications.

Crime Statistics Among Texas LTC Holders

The crime statistics among Texas LTC holders for assault on security officers in 2020 showed 0 convictions while non-LTC holders had 19 convictions. This is a 0% to 100% difference between the two groups.

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

Background checks and eligibility requirements for obtaining an LTC may contribute to the difference in crime statistics between the two groups. LTC holders are required to go through rigorous background checks and meet certain eligibility criteria in order to obtain an LTC. These requirements may act as a deterrent for LTC holders in committing a crime.

LTC holders also receive both formal and informal training and education that may help to further prevent criminal acts. These trainings often include self-defense classes, knowledge of the law, and safety and shooting classes.

LTC holders may also perceive the risks and responsibilities of owning and carrying a firearm differently than non-LTC holders. This may lead to LTC holders being more aware of the potential legal and criminal consequences of using a firearm and, therefore, less inclined to commit a crime.


In conclusion, this article examined the crime statistics between Texas LTC holders and non-LTC holders for assault on security officers in 2020. The results showed a 0% to 100% difference; there were 0 convictions among LTC holders and 19 convictions among non-LTC holders. The results may be influenced by background checks and eligibility requirements for obtaining an LTC, trainings and education for LTC holders, and the perception of risk and responsibility among LTC holders.

These findings suggest that LTC holders in Texas may be more likely to be law-abiding citizens than non-LTC holders. This has implications for those who wish to obtain an LTC or have a positive view towards LTC holders.
