Earlier, we alerted you to HB 195, a “constitutional carry” bill that allows all law-abiding citizens in the state to carry as a matter of right -- without having to submit to any obnoxious background checks or waiting periods. 

The bill is stuck in committee, as is its Senate counterpart, SB 342.

While the push for open carry in Texas may be “sucking the air out of the room,” the bills authorizing permitless carry are just as important.

But the beauty of HB 195/SB 342 is that they would actually accomplish BOTH objectives -- establishing constitutional carry for BOTH open and concealed carry.

We want to see these bills get sent to the Governor.  So it’s time to give these bills a jolt.
