Personally, I think the laws are backwards when it comes to OC and CC in general (not specific to Texas at the moment).

Logically, we should be more comfortable with folks carrying openly, since they are willing to openly display the fact that they are armed. If we are going to restrict one or the other, then carrying concealed should be restricted as it makes it easier for those with nefarious intent. It's kind of like saying that wearing a mask is perfectly OK but you need a special permit to openly show your face in public.

I think this is a perfect example of politicians enacting laws that make people "feel" better, but which are completely illogical.

I wanted to illustrate this point by posting a 30.06 sign next to my front door next to a sign encouraging open carry, but unfortunately SWMBO vetoed that idea.
Good point, but..... :roll:

OC serves what purpose?
I never open carry but sure was glad when it passed because have been times when no matter how hard I try my firearm would be exposed by wind or reaching for something was a time that was a violation stuff happens. I hope we don't forget how far Mr. Cotton along with NRA,&TSRA have come in Texas. I'm sure starting to see politicians waffle as they see all the democrats moving to Texas which in itself is another story.
That is a definite benefit of legal OC. I fear the subject of your last sentence is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

OC didn’t cause this mess so please stop insinuating that it did. We all know you are not a fan of OC but it is a part of our RKBA and in some places it is an acceptable means and not an issue. You are surrendering your self to the lefty tyrants when you criticize something normal.
:iagree:, "in some places it is an acceptable means and not an issue." Acceptable places are not; IMO, shopping areas, religious houses, sporting events, weddings, Hooters, schools, and other public gathering places. I have OC'd in Glacier NP, Rocky Mountain NP, Estes Park, CO, and other remote places in Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming just to see what it feels like. In a couple of those legal OC areas, I was asked, "what's with the gun"? I had no real answer.

You're right, OC just ain't my thing. Furthermore, in the current widespread, anti-gun atmosphere, I firmly feel that we 2A believer gun owners should not taunt our opposition with our 1791AD Second Amendment rights. There's a lot more of them than there are of us. "....out of sight, out of mind", if you get my drift?
