I called all 18 republican Senators this morning in reference to HB1927.

15 are in full support of this bill.

3 Senators are Undecided.

Paul Bettencourt, Joan Huffman, and Kel Seliger.

All three of those would pass the bill if certain changes were made. I don’t know what they want to change. However they do support some form of permitless constitutional carry.

We can afford to loose two Senators and have a 16-15 vote. So we need at least one of those three to commit.

So, I'm assuming Dan Patrick is holding the bill because he wants everyone to be on the same page so the bill can pass, or he could be against the bill himself. We will see if Texas Republicans live up to the "2nd Amendment Sanctuary" hype they have been promoting...

Would be very embarrassing for Texas if we do not get this bill passed. Come on Texas, the time is now.
Dan Patrick is for Permitless carry, he just wants some changes to the current bill. This bill includes many changes beyond simple permitless carry that he doesn’t like. It also eliminates or reduces some “gun free” zones, as well as has issues with the 30.06/07 signs.

The bill also has to go through Senate State Affairs.Senator Hughes will hear the bill if it makes it to his committee. However Patrick isn’t referring the bill yet. That’s part of the problem.

I think I read somewhere last week, that if it passed and got to his desk, Abbott would sign it into law. I hope that's correct.
That is what Fluffy Abbott said last session. He no doubt needs to be reminded of his own words. He may think words have expiration dates.

Good idea, not a problem anywhere anyway. I'd say hosp off limits, Gov. buildings allowed. School laws are for prosecution anyway, just like no CC.
Gun laws of old 'west' were for prosecution only. Disarm or get arrested. Resist arrest and get shot (dead). Hmm, not a bad idea?

Well.... They do make a good point. As for me, I don't care much for knowing that just any ole' dumbass can open carry, especially where my family is involved. In this day and age it is only logical that everyone have education and training. I am licensed and have always been "a responsible gun owner" Pass this bill and there will be alot of "irresponsible gun toting fools in public".. NO THANKS.

Why open carry specifically? Is it different somehow if you can see the gun?


Aside from that, the LTC class is not training in anyway. Dumbasses go in and come out all the same. It’s not a safety class, it’s not a marksmanship class, and it’s rare for anyone to actually fail..most instructors “make sure you pass”.

Also, as of now people can carry unlicensed all over the place in their vehicles. They can also walk around with rifles and shotguns.

I’m also licensed and intend to keep it, but there is no reason or evidence to believe constitutional carry will cause any new problems.

People have the right to a means of defense without jumping through state mandated hoops and paying a self defense tax.

FWIW, my CHL (wasn’t LTC at the time) cost me about $400 when accounting for cost of permit to state, cost of class, and cost of taking off work to get fingerprints done.
