Category 1 Trolls are those who like to blame the GOP for everything and claim "there is no difference between the GOP and Democrats." These trolls pushed the fiction that Abbott would never sign this. They were wrong. They need to eat their crow.
Category 2 Trolls are those Soros sucking fiends who think that there should be government restrictions on the 2nd Amendment. There are a few lurking about. They are deeply saddened as well.
Good for him. That’s the way it was and the way it should be...throughout the 50 states.
Here is another story if you don’t want to wade through the Houston Chronicle feces:
Is it “openly” or “concealed”?
but you guys think that abortion is constitutional.......
What is needed is all gun control laws to be removed from the books and to in line with the constitution.
MSM: Active shooter in mall. No, just someone’s head exploding.
(continuing editorializations by MSM) Mark my words, though, that mall shooting just turned out to be our anchor waiting for a mall shooting and his head exploding when none happened, but there will be gun fights in the streets like Dodge City, and mall and school shootings to beat the band, every single day. Red River will be running red for a long time. I hope you’re all happy with the carnage you’ll be causing, you deplorable cowboys!
(ten years later) G-d damn it! Won’t somebody shoot someone already! THIS IS ALL TRUMP’S FAULT! YAAAAAAH! Pow. Kpow! Pow!
(Somebody take away Jim Acosta’s cap gun. Please.)
Glad that Abbott finally got around to signing it.
Making shitlibs cry and wet themselves again.
Consider yourself corrected. It “is” constitutional carry, open “or” concealed.
About freakin’ time, Abbott! It was on his desk for what, almost 3 weeks?
This is a CONSTITUTIONAL carry law, not an open carry law.
Nicely done, Texas.
The article is poor written. If it is open carry and concealed carry then, great. Finally, TX has out done PA in something.
It’s both. Permits are optional come 9/1. No longer required. You can still get one if you want it for reciprocity purposes.
Before the permitless carry law was signed, Texans generally needed to be licensed to carry handguns openly or concealed. Applicants had to submit fingerprints, complete four to six hours of training, and pass a written exam and a shooting proficiency test. Texas does not require a license to openly carry a rifle in public.
Good on Abbott. They might lay low for a while, but within a week or two, the trolls will be back, pushing to primary Abbott so TX can have a dem governor.
