Licensed Open Carry Comes To Historic Vote In Texas House of Representatives

HB 910, LICENSED OPEN CARRY, TO BE DEBATED AND VOTED ON THIS TUESDAY!

safehere

We need you in Austin!  We need legislators to see a full chamber when they debate and vote on HB 910, Representative Larry Phillips’ licensed open carry bill. 

 LICENSES ONLY SERVE TO CONVERT RIGHTS INTO PRIVILEGES! 

This is where the rubber meets the road.  This is where YOU make the difference and decide whether fighting for your rights is worthy of a small sacrifice to take a day off and take a stand.

Representative Jonathan Stickland will be presenting an amendment to remove the licensing REQUIREMENT from the bill and bring Texas gun laws back in line with our Constitution.  Similar to the atmosphere in Arizona, Stickland’s amendment will maintain the Handgun License as a voluntary license. 

CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY DOES NOT AFFECT RECIPROCITY FOR LICENSEES!!

We have already been told that when Rep. Stickland presents his amendment, it will be voted out on a procedural vote.  Republicans in the House do not want to lose their grip on taxing away and profiting off of your gun rights.
A VOTE IN SUPPORT OF STRIKING DOWN STICKLAND’S AMENDMENT ON A PROCEDURAL VOTE WILL BE COUNTED AS ANANTI-GUN VOTE!!

For two years, you and I have fought hard to get open carry passed and our rights returned to us the way our Founding Fathers intended – UNINFRINGED! We can’t let up now. We need you now more than ever.  This will be the most important vote this legislative session for YOUR gun rights.

We realize that Tuesday is a work day, but we’re begging you to find a way to be at the capitol on April 14th and show our legislators that we’re serious about demanding a return to liberty in Texas. Since this legislative session began, two other states have passed unlicensed open carry laws, bringing the total to 33.

When: Tuesday March 14th, no earlier than 10AM
Where:
House of Representatives Chamber
Place: Capitol Building
Dress: Wear your OCT (or other gun-related) clothing. If you have a Carry To The Capito polo, please wear that.

If for any reason, you are unable to attend in person, please call – don’t email – your representative and make sure they know that any support for a procedural vote that will keep Representative Stickland’s amendment from being voted WILL BE COUNTED AN AS ANTI-GUN VOTE!

Be firm and respectful with your communication please!


Our commitment is to sound the alarm and get you involved as soon as we see movement on gun legislation!
As drafted, HB910 does nothing to further gun rights for over 97% of Texan gun owners. This bill only removes certain restrictions that Concealed Handgun License holders currently have. It will only affect less than 3% of Texans.  Freedom is not violating the rights of another man because you fear his rights or his liberty. With only about 827,000 CHL holders, there can only be one of three reasons why 97% of Texas gun owners do not have a CHL:
  • We don’t like guns.
  • They are all criminals and do not qualify for one.
  • Most Texans don’t believe in converting their right to keep and bear arms into a privilege through a state-mandated 2nd Amendment tax.

    If enough people are in the balcony Tuesday to cheer for Jonathan Strickland’s Constitutional Carry amendment, it just might carry. “With God, all things are possible”.
