Texas Lawmakers Eyes “Permitless” Carry

posted on November 19, 2016

Fresh off this year’s passage of campus-carry legislation, some Texas lawmakers are hoping next year will be the year for “permitless” carry in the Lone Star State.

In a feature story on Fox7Austin.com, Republican state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, who has already filed a “constitutional carry” bill, said 2017 might well be the year. “This is meant to restore the constitutional rights of Texans to be able to carry a firearm without being forced to take a government-mandated test and pay a fee,” Stickland said.

Last session Stickland’s measure didn’t come up for a vote since campus carry was in the spotlight. But now this measure’s time has come, according to Stickland. “The truth is, gun owners in Texas are not flashy. They just want to be able to protect themselves and their families and their loved ones and not have to depend on someone else to do that,” he said.
