According to a local news story, a growing number of residents of El Paso, Texas are acquiring concealed handgun licenses, or CHLs, in response to the threat of violence from Mexican drug cartels. NRA Board member and Houston attorney Charles Cotton tells John Popp that the spike in CHL applications is happening in many Texas border towns and is reminiscent of another time when Texans felt threatened, in the wake of President Obama's election. He discusses the continuing media myth that the border violence is fueled primarily by American guns. Cotton also comments on the NRA's plans to support parking lot and campus carry bills in the next Texas legislative session. Originally aired 8/18/2010.
