“The Texas Senate has approved allowing concealed carry permit holders to have guns in their locked cars parked outside schools,” dfw.cbslocal.com reports. About time! Every time I enter my daughter’s school to drop off something she forgot or take her to the doctor, I’m legally obliged to leave my gun at home. A complete, meaningless PITA.
Should the bill make it into law, it’ll be a baby step toward gun rights restoration. As is The Lone Star State’s decision to lower the cost of its LTC. Which shouldn’t exist and wouldn’t exist and may not exist if and when Texas joins the rest of free America and enacts constitutional carry.
Meanwhile, Gunshine State gun owners must be livid that campus carry, constitutional carry and open carry failed to make it through a Republican-controlled legislature to land on a Republican governor’s desk. Nationally, when will we see a “may issue” case affirming the constitutional right to bear arms outside the home?
I know there are states where gun rights are going backwards. Are you frustrated with the pace of gun rights restoration where you live? Or are you a patient person, happy with the incremental victories we’ve seen?
