    PRO GUN Legislation in TEXAS - Contact your REP's

    Just got this in an email from NRA. All of these are worth supporting:



    Additional Pro-Gun Measures Introduced in Texas



    Previously, we reported on approximately six NRA-backed issues filed so far in the 2013 Regular Session of the Texas Legislature. A few more bear mentioning with several weeks left until the bill filing deadline the first week of March. The NRA-ILA will keep you posted as to which committees these bills are referred and if and when a public hearing is scheduled on any of them.

    HB 1077 by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt would prohibit institutions of higher education from enforcing policies preventing students from lawfully transporting and storing legally-owned firearms in their locked private motor vehicles parked on-campus.

    HB 1078 by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt eliminates the criminal penalty against Concealed Handgun Licensees carrying for protection on the premises of an institution of higher education.

    HB 1142 by Rep. James White allows school districts to offer an elective course in firearms for grades 9-12, to include instruction on the history of the Second Amendment and safety training and be taught by a qualified CHL instructor or peace officer.

    HB 1194 by Rep. Chris Paddie allows open carry as an option for Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees, similar to legislation filed by Rep. George Lavender (HB 700).

    HB 1298 by Rep. Jonathan Stickland aims to remove restrictions on Concealed Handgun Licensees carrying in locations where a school field trip is occurring, if the CHL is not a student, teacher, administrator or chaperone on the field trip.

    HB 1304 by Rep. Kenneth Sheets protects against inadvertent or accidental display of a handgun by a Concealed Handgun Licensee, similar to legislation filed by Sen. Craig Estes (SB 299).
    Please contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to support these pro-gun reforms when they come up for a vote. The NRA-ILA will keep you informed on these and other firearm-related measures this session in the Lone Star State.

    Come on Texas...get that OC bill passed, it makes a great option and prevents exposure incidents.
    Sure hope FL will try it again.
