Texas Governor Greg Abbott made clear during his State of the State address yesterday that the Lone Star State would soon join the super-majority of states that allows law-abiding citizens to open carry holstered handguns:
Let me briefly follow up on a word I mentioned a moment ago – liberty. In a single word, it encapsulates what this country stands for, what Texas symbolizes. I will expand liberty in Texas by signing a law that makes Texas the 45th state to allow Open Carry.
The affirmation is a clear defeat for supporters of gun control, who campaigned hard to retain laws banning open carry that are among the most outdated in the nation.
The Moms Demand tried, again, and have failed again. They cannot, it seems, accept that they are simply on the wrong side of both history and liberty.
It will be interesting as to what type of open carry we get. Likely it will require a CHL type license because, face it too many folks are making money off of the permit system to get a constitutional carry bill passed. It will also be interesting what the gun control cultists do once the new law is in place. I pray they do not make good on promises/threats to call 911 every time they see someone open carrying a pistol. But, I also do not put much past these miscreants.
