No text yet, but I think it is what we've been waiting for.

I just sent a fax to Governor Perry politely asking him to stand up for gun rights in Texas in this session.

Looks like good news ahead, but still no text and no confirmation it's been added to the list by the Gov.

Looking for comment from Charles... :bigear:

Wow! So carrying while intoxicated is a class-C misd. the first time, and a class B thereafter!

I just took a quick read, but I believe this is the one we've been looking for. As I read it, as drafted, it allows CHL holders to carry a handgun in all the same locations as an off duty LEO.

There is a small issue. On top of page 7, the phrase "of the same category as the handgun the person is carrying" needs to be deleted. It no longer applies, or will not after September 1st.

So if this bill is passed and become law I have a few questions...

1. Where will I be able to carry that Im not allowed to now?

2. It says it takes either 2/3 vote and become effective immediately or it will go into effect Sept 1st. Does that mean that this bill will become law regardless if it gets the votes or not?

I'm not sure what you're asking, but the bill still has to pass. Just like any bill, it must be passed out of committee in both the House and the Senate, be passed out of the Calendars Committee in the House, and be passed by majority vote on both second and third reading in both the House and the Senate.
