I know there are a couple TTAG readers in the South Texas area, and I figured that I should give them a heads-up on this as well. The Texas House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety will be holding hearings on proposals to permit concealed carry on campus, and give current CHL holders the option to openly carry their firearms (currently, Texas only allows concealed carry — no open carry in any form). The NRA has more on the proposals here, and the Texas State Rifle Association’s bulletin is here. The long and the short of it is that if you’re able to make it to Room E2.010 of the Capitol Extension in Austin tomorrow you should make an effort to voice your opinion on these measures. It looks like they’ll be taking testimony in the early afternoon, and I’ll be there myself. Right after stopping in at Rudy’s for lunch, that is.
