It is very rare for a CCWer to wrongly shoot someone. It does happen, but rarely.

Texas has well over 500,000 people with CHL (Concealed Hangun License) but averages about one or two a year of those, who are convicted of murder. Some years - none. We also average about 50 civilian justifiable homicides per year. There is no reason to think that the Texas experience is different from other states with similar laws.

None CCW murders are in the hundreds per year. But those are criminals who are already violating bunches of laws.
