I've heard that the TSRA supports open carry and has pushed legislation for it in the past but with the open carry movement growing in Texas I was wondering what the TSRA's position really is? Does the largest and most powerful gun rights organization in Texas support unlicensed open carry? If so, do you guys plan on announcing publicly that you support such a measure? With the 2009 Legislative session quickly approaching it would be nice if you would make your position clear and public for everyone to see. The online petition has over 23,500 signatures on it now. OpenCarry.org, Texas Citizens Defense League and Texans For Open Carry are pushing hard for open carry in the state. Where exactly does the TSRA stand? I would hope that the TSRA will continue their great track record of supporting pro-gun rights proposals and publicly come out in favor of open carry and lead this fight for it. I'd hate to think that you guys are actually our enemy when it comes to this issue.
