Why is Living in Texas so Dangerous? ( Just the stats)

As a California  personal injury attorney, I often read publications and texts nationwide regarding different varieties of injury as well as different ways of dying.

I was struck today reading a brief from the National Safety Council, which broke down causes of fatalities by cause and by state.

Although California’s population is almost 50% larger than that of Texas, Texas’ fatality rate is much higher.

Texas has more fatalities in motor vehicle accidents ,  more deaths by choking, more deaths by drowning, more deaths by fire and more deaths by suffocation than any other state in the union.

Texas also has the most unintentional deaths by firearms, machinery and electrocution (not deliberate electrocution).

So again, why are the stats in Texas so extreme? Anyone?
