Lone Star Governor Makes License To Carry Fees Among Nation’s Lowest

posted on May 27, 2017

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) is congratulating Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for signing legislation that makes license to carry fees in Texas among the country’s lowest. Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director, said, “No one should be priced out of their right to carry a firearm for self-protection. This bill makes it easier for all Texans to exercise this fundamental right.”

NRA-backed Senate Bill 16 was sponsored by state Senators Robert Nichols and Joan Huffman, and it reduces the price for a license to carry by $100. It also decreased renewal costs by $30, and made the annual cost of a 5-year license $8 per year. “Texas is known for its strong Second Amendment rights laws, and I’m proud to further strengthen those rights today,” Abbot told reporters.
