Texas Open Carry Causes No Concern For Law Enforcement

posted on May 26, 2016

Anti-gun activists diligently fought open carry in the Lone Star State, trotting out their same tired doomsday arguments of “Wild West” scenarios and “blood running in the street.” Now, six months after Texas’ open carry law took effect, law enforcement officials are saying the new law hasn’t even resulted in complaints from the public. 

Asked by KVUE Radio if there have been lots of complaints about open carriers, Roger Wade, spokesperson for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, said: “As it turned out, we didn’t get any. People were scared of people walking up carrying guns. What they don’t realize is, is that there are a lot of people carry guns, you have no idea are carrying guns.” 

Not to let an opportunity for a stealth anti-gun comment go to waste in an otherwise completely pro-gun article, however, KVUE managed to get a dig at gun owners into its headline for the story, suggesting problems are still on the horizon. “Law Enforcement: no open carry complaints (so far),” the headline read.
