For all us Texans, the law is in process of being changed, but our voices need to be heard by our representatives. See following (clipped from NRA-ILA :: NRA-Backed Employee/Parking Lot Protection Legislation Passes Texas Senate Overwhelmingly without Gutting Amendments!)
"...the Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 321 by a 30 to 1 vote today with no gutting amendments. Introduced by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy), SB 321 is an NRA-backed bill that would prevent employers from enacting and enforcing policies to prohibit employees from storing firearms in their locked private motor vehicles while parked at work. Texas gun owners should not have to worry about being fired for lawfully storing a firearm in their personal vehicle should they choose to carry a handgun for self-defense during their daily commutes or to transport firearms to and from their hunting leases or local shooting ranges.
SB 321 will now move to the state House for consideration - we will keep you posted on further action items once it receives a committee referral in that chamber. The fight is not over! These companies will continue to fight for notice requirements and exemptions in the House, so be aware of where they stand and be prepared to direct calls and e-mails into House offices in opposition to such requirements and industry "carve-outs"."
Also, see NRA-ILA :: Texas: NRA-Backed Campus Personal Protection Act Passes House Committee, Senate Companion Bill to be Heard in Senate Committee Next Week! for our help needed to pass Campus Carry under consideration right now.
Make your voice heard or don't bellyache about the outcome!
