Texas AG Suing County Over Carry Ban

posted on September 5, 2016

The Texas attorney general has filed a lawsuit against a southeast Texas county for restrictions barring law-abiding citizens from carrying concealed firearms into the courthouse.

Attorney General Ken Paxton announced the lawsuit against Waller County, just west of Houston, which has attempted to ban guns in its county courthouse.

“A local government cannot be allowed to flout Texas’s licensed carry laws, or any state law, simply because it disagrees with the law or doesn’t feel like honoring it,” Paxton said in a statement announcing the lawsuit. “I will vigilantly protect and preserve the Second Amendment rights of Texans.”

According to state figures, about 2,600, or 6 percent, of Waller County residents are licensed to carry handguns.
