Some of you might remember seeing a post here proclaiming that open carry has passed in Texas. Well… it hasn’t. Not yet, at least. Last week, some legal wrangling knocked the open carry bill in Texas off the calendar. HB 910 had to go back to the Calendars Committee to be re-scheduled amidst concern it would die there. Nope. “Turning aside a flurry of Democratic amendments, the Texas House on Friday gave initial approval to legislation that would allow those with a concealed handgun license to openly carry a holstered weapon,” statesman.com reports. “Final approval of House Bill 910 is expected Monday.” Following that vote, the House and Senate versions of the bill still need to be reconciled and most likely the Senate will need to vote one more time to approve the final version. As Lone Star State Governor Abbott has publicly pledged to sign the bill, once that vote is complete this is a done deal. We hope. You can track the bill’s progress here.
