Not sure about that, could be true. Of course in Texas you can now carry a handgun inside your car/truck without a CHL. That is enough for some folks I think. It would thus lessen the number of those seeking CHL.

Either way No way are the gun laws in Mass as open/free as they are in Texas. Sad really as both states have rich history when it comes to firearms. Something just wrong with Mass being so anti gun IMO.
