Taken from a letter to the editor of the Duluth News Tribune, Sunday, March 3, 2002:
"In Texas, the Department ofPublic Safety reports that between January of 1966 and May of 2001, concealed-gun permit holders were arrested for a total of 3,370 crimes, including murder, rape, sexual assault and weapons-related crimes.Between 1996 and 1999, Texas concealed-permit holders were arrested for weapons-related offenses at a rate that was 66 per-cent higher than that of the general population of Texas"
