Open carry wasn’t an issue in the Governor race this year in Texas for one very important reason: both candidates supported it. Both Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis had voiced their support for open carry laws in the Lone Star State, but speculation was that Davis was just paying lip service to the remarkably pro-gun voters that make up Texas’ electorate. Despite reports of issues with voting machines in my home county of Bexar, Abbott has secured the Governor’s seat according to CNN. Hopefully this will mean that we will actually see some movement on open carry in the Lone Star State this legislative cycle. And maybe even campus carry.
