Open carry of handguns in Texas?

Greg Abbott, our current Attorney General, and likely the next governor is a proponent of allowing concealed handgun license holders to open carry their weapons. I am fine with this. Open carry brings another level of responsibility with it. With concealed carry no one else knows you are armed. That goes away when you open carry, so it will be interesting what a new law would require of the license holder, and how police would handle the new laws. Of course, the nervous Nellies who would freak out when they saw a man or women with a .45 on their hip are an issue. We have largely become a society that fears guns, I wonder how that will be handled? Possibly requiring the license holder to wear their permit in a visible place when they open carry?
