Handgun In Holster

The Texas House of Representatives gave the initial approval to a “constitutional carry” bill that would allow handguns to be carried, either openly or concealed, without a permit.

The bill would get rid of current state laws that require residents to obtain a license in order to carry a handgun. It was approved by the House in an 84-56 vote. Almost all of the chamber’s Republicans and seven Democrats voted in favor. The legislation will now move on to the state Senate.

If signed into law, House Bill 1927, would allow state residents 21 and older to carry a handgun without a permit as long as they are “not otherwise prohibited by state or federal law from possessing the firearm.”

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Matt Schaefer, said that the bill “should be called common-sense carry.” He argues that Texas residents should not be prevented from defending themselves and their families due to the time and resources it takes to get a firearms license.

  2. This law would make everyone in Texas a “hard target”, thus disincentivizing any nut case trying to shoot the place up. They would always suspect that there is somebody there that was prepared to defend themselves with a gun. Might even be an off duty cop!
