Here in The Lone Star State, Constitutional Carry is in development hell. HB 375′s sitting in the Homeland Security Committee, waiting for a vote to send it on its way. If CC somehow manages to make it to Governor Abbott’s desk, no small credit will be due Rachel Malone.
Ms. Malone is the founder/director 0f Texas Firearms Freedom “dedicated to making activism accessible for the everyday Texan.” Ipso facto. Malone’s org managed to marshal some 165 Texans to take a day off work to testify on behalf of Constitutional Carry. And activated thousands more via the Internet.
Ms. Malone also earns a TTAG tip of the hat for being a genuine gun gal: an inveterate open carrier and professional firearms instructor (who kicked this author’s butt in a revolver shooting competition at The Range at Austin).
The fact that Ms. Malone is a music teacher who plays piano and violin at the highest level (Rachmaninov Piano Concerto Number 3 anyone?) may not inform her lobbying efforts. But I reckon her crusade for constitutional carry is music to the ears of anyone who values firearms freedom.
