Texas just keeps doing it right.
The Texas House has now passed the bill which would make owning a firearm that much hassle free as per the 2nd Amendment and The Constitution of The United States.
Liberals never really acknowledge that their states are dying, and that DROVES of people are moving to places like Florida and Texas.
This right here illustrates the exact reason why.
While states like New York tax you to death, have extremely high costs of living, high crime rates, no gun rights, and want your child to remain in a car seat until they are 12 year old, Texas is free.
Congrats to the people of Texas, and if you were on the fence about moving there before, then maybe this may help you make a choice.
Here is the latest:
The Texas Tribune wrote:
A bill to allow the permitless carrying of handguns in Texas is on the brink of reaching Gov. Greg Abbott's desk after the state House and Senate reached a compromise on the bill.
The author of the legislation, Rep. Matt Schaefer, R-Tyler, announced the deal in a statement Friday afternoon, and the Senate sponsor, Sen. Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, issued a subsequent statement also acknowledging an agreement. Just before midnight on Sunday, the House approved the deal in an 82-62 vote. The Senate is expected to approve the new version soon.
"By working together, the House and Senate will send Gov. Abbott the strongest Second Amendment legislation in Texas history, and protect the right of law-abiding Texans to carry a handgun as they exercise their God-given right to self-defense and the defense of their families," Schaefer said.
Dallas News had more on the wonderful development in the state:
“This legislation restores our Second Amendment rights and upholds every Texan’s right to self-defense,” the Republican said in a statement.
Some House provisions made it into the final version. One would let certain people expunge past convictions for unlawfully carrying a handgun without a license should the bill become law.
Critics have warned the legislation will let people who’ve never used a gun before carry one with them. Democrats also say the state should be focused on keeping firearms away from dangerous people in the first legislative session since the 2019 mass shootings in El Paso and Midland-Odessa.
In Texas it’s legal to carry a long gun in public without a license. But people must be licensed by the state to carry a handgun outside their homes and vehicles. The process requires passing a background check, taking a safety course, showing shooting proficiency and paying a fee.
