    The state of Texas is considered to have some of the nation's most lenient gun laws. Public concerns over gun control in Texas have increased in recent years as Mexican drug cartels continue to commit violent crimes near the Texas border with Mexico. The debate over gun control laws generally produces two arguments:

    Those that believe gun control laws are effective in reducing gun-related accidents and crime and should be enforced by the government.

    Those that believe gun control laws are ineffective in reducing gun-related accidents and crime and thus support fewer gun control measures

    During the 2009/2010 fiscal year, the Texas Department of Public Safety issued 123,325 concealed handgun licenses. During that same period, 622 applications were denied, 590 licenses were suspended, and 539 were revoked. Harris County issued the greatest number of licenses in Texas. Over 16%, or 20,564, of all licenses issued within Texas were issued in Harris County
