So, if Constitutional Carry is approved, then what would be the advantage to having an LTC?
No NICS check for buying guns, reciprocity with other states, Federal GFSZA exemption.
Possibly exclusion from 30.06 and 30.07, depending on how its written.

The Gun Free School Zone Act is a Federal Law. Tex Leg is not going to be able to do anything about that.

BTW, this seems to be a good overview of current laws affecting carry of firearms and Texas schools:

GFSZ Act is a federal carrot on a stick. It is only enforceable because states have implemented it into state law, hence US v Lopez. However, the revised version of GFSZ act has never been tested before SCOTUS so it would be interesting to see what would happen.

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

That is quite the bill.... Sheesh there is a lot of distributed code.

Looks like it makes constitutional carry apply to all, and makes 30.06 and 30.07 only apply to 'unlicensed persons'.

It would likely only make it through with additional provisions for what a license holder can and cannot do- but considering when have been vetted by the state, we should be able to carry basically anywhere...

Doesn't address: GFSZ act, courtrooms or 30.06/30.07 for license holder as best as I can tell. Which makes sense, I would rather see this go through than nothing and GFSZ act is going to carry some baggage and expend some political capital.

Not saying we shouldn't get rid of GFSZ but this is a step in the right direction. Only one way to eat an elephant... :tiphat:
