From the NRA’s Lobbying Group:
Yesterday, the Texas House passed Senate Bill 321, NRA-backed employee protection/parking lot legislation sponsored by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) and state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington), by a 117-29 vote. SB 321, substituted in House Bill 681 on the House floor since it had already passed the Senate, would prevent employers from enacting and enforcing policies to prohibit employees from storing firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work.
The bill now goes on to the Governor for his signature. Since Governor Rick “I shot a coyote with my Ruger .380 LCR” Perry is a ‘gun-friendly’ governor, we expect to see the bill become law Really Soon Now. All I’ve got to add is, “it’s about time.”
