Too early to see if the new legislation (no-permit carry) was a factor, but I certainly expect to see more and more shootings. Austin traffic is very bad and with the influx of employers (Apple, Tesla, etc.) it'll certainly get worse.

I was at a TxDOT (state transportation) open house I pointed out that their plan to increase the highway near me from 4 lanes to 6 wouldn't do any good. They would, I said, only be creating larger parking lot as their work didn't include addressing the major choke point (a half-mile stretch which includes three traffic lights and a RR crossing) nor the entry/exit traffic from the big high school stadium. Their answer - once past all the BS - was that TxDOT was there to build roads, not solve traffic problems.
