    I don't understand how you can have an Unlawful Carry by a Handgun License Holder...if you're not a Handgun License Holder...

    cops? security guards?

    I would have to say that it looks like the vast majority of CDLer's are law abiding citizens.

    We’re a sick bunch though...seemed to be high numbers of CHLs that committed sexual offences with children.

    I know that if a security officer is in uniform whether on or off duty he/she cannot conceal a handgun. If you're a security officer with a CHL and you Commission and you get off work you can cover up your hand gun with a "plain clothes" or "street clothes" and then you are a CHL holder not a commissioned security officer. But a CHL holder could be convicted of ULC if he/she carries in a prohibited area as well but i think they had a separate listing for that. I'm sure TI will be along and answer that better than I can, and maybe even correct me if I'm wrong as I might be on something somewhere.



    I noticed that. I don't like those numbers. If I ever caught someone messing with a child in that way I might get my name a list in Huntsville, TX.:mad:

    These are the two that are getting me:

    UNL CARRY HANDGUN LIC HOLDER

    Non CHL -15
    CHL - 9

    UNL CARRY HANDGUN LIC HOLDER ALCH PREM/CORR

    Non CHL – 4
    CHL – 0

    I understand them being committed by a CHL, but not a non CHL.

    How about carrying a semi, but only licenced for a revolver ?

    The bottom of the report states, ""Convictions of CHL Holders" includes any conviction reported to the Concealed Handgun Licensing Bureau for which the convicted individual held a license to carry a concealed handgun at the time the offense was committed."

    So if the state criminal history repository showed a conviction. but the conviction was never reported to the CHL division, then it would show under total convictions, but not under CHL convictions.

    I think.

    That would be a standard Unlawful Carrying a Weapon charge.
