It might prove handy when some folks try to water down or repeal the Texas version of the so-called "Castle Doctrine."
It might also prove useful in an effort to move CHL's from TPC §46.15(b) to 46.15(a).
A variation on the theme, "better to have ammo and not need it, than to need it and not have it". Especially if getting the information takes months.
I first got that information a few years ago to block a rumored bill. At that time, LEO stats were much better than the general public, but about half as good as CHLs. I suspect the gap between LEOs and CHLs is now much greater because of the huge change in the comparison since 2007. The move from TPC §46.15(b) to §46.15(a) is exactly why I want the numbers again.
These are not numbers I ever posted, nor do I anticipate doing so in the future. The goal isn't to hurt LEO image, it's to promote the interests of CHLs.
