Well, It’s About Freaking Time

The Great Republic of Texas, long considered a bastion of Second Amendment rights, has outlawed the open carry of handguns since the post-Civil War days. 44 other states permit it, either unrestricted or with a permit.

44!

But that just changed.

Our state Congress Critters just finally decided to get in line with the rest of the nation.

The bill has been sent to Gov. Greg Abbot’s desk, who has pledged to sign any and all pro-Second Amendment legislation sent his way.

While I will rarely carry openly, I like to know that I can.

Second Amendment rights are still restricted under this legislation, but it is a step in the right direction. I may carry openly just to watch the hoplophobes quiver.

Don’t you need to get a permit down there for open carry under this bill? Hmm, I think I’ll strap on my .45 and wander around the neighborhood. No permits needed for open carry in NH. And now for something more important. I hope all the Rotties in Texas are safe, high and dry. Will someone be speaking with the… Read more »

LC Jackboot IC/A @ #: I applied for and got a New Hampshire (make sure you get the non-resident application) permit which consists merely of filling out a form and sending them the fee. Got mine as I recall in about 2 weeks. Wanna be slightly annoyed? NH residents pay $10 for a 4 year ccw permit. We’re trying to… Read more »

Well shite on a shingle !!! I suppose my next renewal fee will jump up then. Good luck pushing that carry bill through her desk. Y’all have enough votes for a veto?

I doubt it. To many moonbats.

We should just round them up and ship them all back to massachusetts where they came from.

The big thing that I’ve seen in this legislation, is that it will protect legal CCW permitees to avoid the “brandishing a firearm” charges that some locales liked to levy on people who were carrying concealed and their shirt rode up to uncover their sidearm, or who, in some other way, exposed their concealed weapon. (Get your minds out of… Read more »

Retired Spook @ #: It isn’t perfect, but “little by little, the oak is hewn.” It’s time to fire up the chainsaw then. And I’m off to visit a new gun store and indoor range I didn’t know about near my home. The old store went under a year ago and I wasn’t aware that a new place was coming… Read more »

It’s good to see another state move in the right direction. Perhaps one day Texas can join my beloved Arizona and free their citizens to be armed citizens, no permit required, open or concealed. Hey, if we could do it over the whines of the Kalifornia refugees, you guys can do it too!
