    Pro-Gun Bills Pre-Filed in Texas

    Pro-Gun Bills Pre-Filed in Texas
    TSRA
    The Texas Legislature has convened in its 2009 Regular Session. Tuesday, January 13. State Representative Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton) pre-filed House Bill 267, legislation allowing Texans to purchase rifles and shotguns in non-contiguous states. Currently, federal law allows the interstate sales of such firearms, but a conflicting Texas law only allows residents to buy long guns in the neighboring states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. This state law has prevented the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) from approving sales of rifles and shotguns in 45 other states to Texas residents.

    Another pro-gun bill, pre-filed is HB 410 by State Representative Carl Isett (R-Lubbock). This legislation repeals the requirement that when stopped by law enforcement a Texas concealed handgun licensees display their license when carrying their handgun. Under current law failure to display the license when carrying a handgun may lead to the license being suspended for 90 days and/or the person charged with a class A or a class B misdemeanor. Law enforcement is made aware of the status of the concealed handgun licensee during the wants and warrants check. Technology has made the old law unnecessary and a potential hardship for licensees. Support HB 410 by Isett!

    Please contact your State Representatives and politely ask them to sign on as co-authors to HB 267 and HB 410. Updated contact information for returning and newly elected House members can be found next week at www.house.state.tx.us. More

    Good news about not having to notify the LEOs when stopped. I hope it passes.

    The requirement to show the license no longer makes sense because others who are carrying in their car but not licensed are not required to show or tell.

    Way to go Texas! I didn't think it matters much. But after carrying for about a year now, I find it would be awkward to have to notify police each time. I haven't been stopped in a traffic stop yet, but I had informal encounters with law enforcement (e.g. after calling them to check out some drug dealers). It would be odd to have to start the conversation with identifying that I am armed.

    Texas is hooking it up!

    Maybe someday Texas will become the 3rd state in the Union to require no permit to carry open or concealed much like Alaska and Vermont!

    It's supposed to be. I can't remember who was going to introduce it - Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (or whatever their organization is called) was working with someone on it.

    The out of state sales thing would be a good plus for them to pass. The requirement to show CHL when asked for ID from a LEO really doesn't make any difference to me, since even if it weren't the law I would still show them my CHL out of courtesy to the LEO. I would much rather them know I have a gun then to be surprised by one sometime during the interaction.

    Oh, and I doubt that Texas will be the next state to allow open carry. Remember Wisconsin already allows that. I would rather not trade places with the WI laws.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
