Not a 'Lie', Just an Ignorant Talking Point

At the hearings for a CHL in Texas, anti-gun mommy Kelly Burke made this claim:
“we do not know, about how, quote, responsible CHL holders are, because that data set is not available and is completely locked down. Any statements about how, quote, responsible and law-abiding CHL holders are is completely anecdotal and therefore conjecture.”
Problem is, as far as Texas is concerned, she's FOS.  Texas CHL stats have been online for years.  I don't think she lied though, she's just ignorant and is repeating the talking points fed to her by other anti-gun fanatics, you know, the evil NRA bought off (federal) politicians to hide the millions of gun deaths each year.

  She has no clue what she's talking about and no experience w/ firearms outside of what she's been fed.  Typical of most anti-gun mouth pieces.

It's really as simple as that.

Sorry can't agree with you on this one.
Had she simply said "We don't know how law abiding CHL holders are" then I would agree.

But she specifically stated that "Dataset is locked down" -- when it has been available on the Texas Department of Public Safety website for a very long time.

Apparently CHL are law-abiding. n/t .... You can't say "Texas CHL holders are more likely to be arrested for DUIs (or violent crimes, or whatnot)" if you don't know

That link comes up on the bottom of a google search for "chl holders law abiding texas" so I can't buy they didn't find the statistics readily available.

They didn't even look. Just vomited out what she was spoon fed by 50 Shades of Shannon like a good little drone.

If they actually try and learn anything individually, it destroys their worldview.
