Texas Gov Calls for Everywhere Carry
Governor Perry stated today he believes CHLers should be allowed to carry anywhere in the state. I sure wish he had the authority to make it so. Here's the link:

Texas Gov. calls for "total gun freedom"
In the wake of the VT tragedy, Texas Governor Rick Perry has called for total freedom for law abiding gun toters in Texas.
All we need now is a state legislator to get on the ball and submit a bill while the legislature is still session !

While I completely agree with Gov. Perry, I'm not going to hold my breath!
Perry Calls For Gun-Toting Freedom In Texas
While people across the country have called for gun control in the wake of Virginia Tech, Gov. Rick Perry called for gun freedom Monday.
Perry met with U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt, who is traveling the country to decide how the government can prepare schools for these types of situations.
Perry said Texas should consider allowing licensed, law-abiding citizens to carry their authorized weapon anywhere in the state.
"Whether it's on a college campus or wherever, and frankly, I think it's time for our citizens to be able to protect themselves," Perry said. "The last time I checked, putting up a sign that says, 'Don't bring your gun in here,' for someone who has ill intent on their mind, they could (not) care less."
But I can dream can't I?.....

I agree with you Rallyman...Perry will have an uphill battle on this one. Shame that common sense isn't so common anymore!

I too will dream - not only for Perry's TX but everywhere else too.
Breath-holding however may lead to fatal consequences!

All it will take is a couple good examples of where the streets don't run with the blood of innocents. After being able to hold those up for all to see as concrete examples of the benefits, it would have a high likelihood of spreading just like the trend toward allowing concealed carry.

God, I love Texas! At least he has the cajones to throw it out on the table.

would make great sense and be very nice for us all
I will definitely keep an eye on the Texas chl forum and the legislature website
footnote to clarify: Perry's comments weren't exactly true, he mentioned being able to carry in church (we can as long as the place of worship isn't posted with the required 30.06 sign); and the author of the article didn't include other exceptions
--"All handguns, licensed or not, are currently banned from bars, restaurants, schools, sporting events, correctional facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, amusement parks, places of worship, governmental meetings and courthouses."
bars must be 51% marked, hospitals/nursing homes/amusement parks/places of worship all must be marked with 30.06 signs to keep us out
would make me and my wife feel a lot better if she could keep her glock on her when she goes into the buildings on her college campus rather than having to leave it in the car(and for that matter inside the hospital where she works )
and they just had to add this nonsense: "I think it would be a disaster, especially with a lot of alcohol involved," said Austin resident James. The idea of partiers carrying guns on Sixth Street did not sit well with some, and police will tell about the fights they encounter there every weekend."
the ignorants don't realize there are already people carrying on 6th street and its already against the law to carry if you're intoxicated

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

That fellow from Texas is on to something...
The right to life [liberty, the pursuit of happiness] is basic (endowed by the creator). The right to self defense (preserving one's own life) stems naturally from this right to life (stay alive). Honestly it doesn't require a lot of mental horsepower to follow the path from point A to point B. It's about time somebody in a position of political authority pointed out the obvious.

I like Governor Perry. He needs to move to Florida.

Bruce, Bob, I wouldn't go that far. Though I agree and support him on this one, Perry is the *ahem* primarily responsible for the Trans-Texas Corridor, which, if approved, will result in the eminent domain forfeiture of tens of thousands of acres of privately held property.
