If you cannot come up with $140 plus a basic piece and holster, chances are you're poor so nobody is likely to rob you anyway and therefore you have no reason to proect yourself or your property. Another way of looking at it is: if you cannot afford $140 plus a basic piece and holster, do you really deserve to be protected anyway? Society has enough poor people as it is. Let them fight amongst themselves like savages!Originally posted by: Nebor
This is a terribly dissappointing problem. Hopefully the issue is resolved quickly.
Personally I think a big part of the problem is how classist the Texas CHL system is. It is the most expensive license in the country, at $140 initial cost. Add in a typical $100 class, and the cost of a handgun and (hopefully) a holster, and you've made the right to protect oneself only available to the rich.
