Texas Is About To Carry

posted on May 30, 2015

Texas is on track to finally pass licensed open carry. Lawmakers met Thursday and removed a stipulation that barred police from stopping citizens and asking for their license, removing what seems to be the final barrier to sending the legislation to Gov. Greg Abbott, who has pledged to sign it. It appears that a campus carry bill will also reach Gov. Abbott’s desk before the legislative session ends Monday.

The eyes of the nation have been upon Texas’ 2015 legislative session. Though gun-friendly, Texas is one of the last remaining states to ban open carry. The struggle over Second Amendment rights in Texas has been a major priority for pro-freedom forces as well as anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will no doubt declare some victory in defeat.

However, restoring the rights of 27 million Texans (second in population only to California) can only be viewed as a massive victory for firearm freedom.
