    If not a single person ever open carries a handgun, I'd still like to see OC pass in Texas. In 1876 our constitution was amended to repeal the ban on public possession of handguns and the breakdown of freedom that went with it. I'm not sure yet why the law was never repealed, but as I understand, the courts have upheld it as it's written. I'd like to see that wrong corrected.

    If OC is passed, most of restrictions on concealed carry would be rendered completely pointless. I hope the legislature would then be motivated to encourage concealed carry, as compared to open, by easing the restrictions.

    Convicted. You have to "intentionally" expose to be convicted. That doesn't mean the law protects you from the ride down to the police station.

    I don't get a lot of time to spend on this forum, but in my not-so-humble opinion , the guys in posts 34, 41 and 42 hit the nails on the head. The "push" for OC in Tejas appears to have some poor timing/planning. Need for political "reality check".
