Texas’s Advancement on Constitutional Carry

Further advancements in the hope of a
Constitutional Carry Texas has progressed further towards reality. In Texas as
many already know, a permit is needed for individuals who reside in the State
to be able to carry a firearm. All around the country, we have seen this
progress and pass from many States. Now we see that Texas is on the verge of
becoming another State to join the list of passing Constitutional Carry within
its borders.

House Bill 1927 would
get rid of the previous law for anyone looking to carry who lives in the State.
This bill would be effective for those who are not “prohibited from owning
firearms,” allowing for a major win in the country for the Second Amendment in
general. Having now passed the Senate with a win of “18 -13 margin along party
lines.”
What does this bill mean for gun owners?

The bill now heads to
the house for approval before it goes to the Governor’s desk for his signature.
Once there and signed officially into law House Bill 1927 would allow for
“individuals who are 21 and older to carry a handgun for the protection of
themselves or their families, in public places, in a holster without the
requirement of a State-issued license,” which was relayed in a statement by a
sponsor of the bill (R-Charles Schwetner).

Thoughts on a Constitutional Carry
law in Texas?

I have said this
before when it comes to Texas, the State itself is “synonymous with Freedom.” I
wholeheartedly believe that every law-abiding citizen around the country should
have the opportunity to protect themselves and their family with a firearm if
they wish. With this being said, I believe that Texas is making the right
decision with the progression of this bill.
