Sec. 23. RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime. doe's this mean if the rest of the country is screwed gun wise that we might be relatively safe due to the fact that texas has its own constitution and it actually says "EVERY CITIZEN SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS"?
