Well done Texas. It seems that you understand the meaning of Shall not be infringed.
Thank you, Texans!
All states need a law to thwart Federal enforcement of their crazy suppressor rules. We old folks need all of the hearing protection we can get.
B-B-ut that would prevent mass shootings on College campuses. Is that what we want? But that's not fair to the mass shooter if people shoot back! How is he suppose to kill a lot of people if he is killed before he gets off a second shot? Not that is not fair!
Please excuse my ignorance here,,,, while I applaud these actions & wholeheartedly agree, is this something that could be potentially be repealed by a future lib controlled legislative body? I wonder if these laws are written so as to prevent their future repeal or watering down? I would welcome an enlightening.
In liberal Austin a lot of Starbucks is exploding through a lot of noses right now.
Time for lefties to break out the panic relief bongs.
Why Texas doesn’t allow open carry, even by permit, still leaves me scratching my head.
Nice to see that Texas is moving in the right direction.
I would rather see straight up open carry than the “inadvertent display”, but maybe it can be fixed.
Nobama just got a big COME AND TAKE IT postcard. Now to see if he’s equally stupid as was Santa Anna to take up the challenge. Betcha not.
It's already been done in Utah (my daughter goes to USU). Logan, UT is one of the safest cities in America.
Actually, these bills come up for their 3rd reading on the Texas House floor today. None have “passed” the House. After this 3rd reading, they will be scheduled for a full House vote at a later date. No doubt, all will pass if the House is allowed to vote on them. Let’s see which of these bills the House Speaker will allow to come up for a vote.
And yet, *still* no open carry. While I prefer concealed carry, personally, I find it amazing that Texas cannot get over this odd hump.
In Arizona, where open carry is as common as the public chewing of gum, most people still prefer concealed carry, I suspect mostly to keep their metal gun more shaded on hot days, and an open carry sidearm tends to interfere with a car’s seat belt lock. Especially with those darned bucket seats.
God bless Texas.
That’s one state that still remembers they’re Americans.
Unlike New Jersey....
