(KRLD-AM) The latest spike in License to Carry gun applications is expected to take Texas past a significant milestone.
CHL Licensed Instructor Michael Cargill owns Central Texas Gun Works.
He says the 140 percent jump in applications from December 2015 through February is caused by a combination of fears of terrorism brought on by the shootings in San Bernardino and President Obama's proposed gun control laws.

"Then you have the new law that went into effect January the first (Open Carry)…all of that plays into it, and that's why we're seeing numbers. For the first time the State of Texas will actually go over one million licensed holders," says Cargill.
