NEWS FLASH and SAVE THE DATE: The next TX legislative hearing on gun issues is Austin, Feb. 26 (Wed.) 10am (likely all day)

This is DIFFERENT than the other hearings, y'all!

1. Instead of being the select committee set up by

...and...

2. Instead of being chaired by Joan Huffman (who has been VERY UNFRIENDLY to liberty and gun rights), it is chaired by Sen. Bryan Hughes, who is MUCH more in tune with the right to keep and bear arms.

...and...

3. Instead of being about gun control ideas, it is a POSITIVE 2A-friendly charge:

~ "Examine Second Amendment legislation passed since the 84th Legislative Session including open carry, campus carry, and lowering the license to carry fee.

~ Determine the impact these laws have made on furthering and protecting Second Amendment rights.

~ Make recommendations that may further protect and enhance Texans' Second Amendment right to bear arms."

IMO, this should stay on the front page.

People may think TX is immune but it's not.

I would say that in Texas there is a pretty good chance showing up & talking will help.
We have had good success convincing many lawmakers of the need for freedom and liberty (if they would like to keep their jobs).

We've got a lot of pretty articulate polis that are pushing for ideas like Constitutional Carry and the like. With Abbott and Patrick toying around with the idea of ERPOs and "universal background checks", I found it fitting to respond to Texans for Greg Abbott's calls for more money, with the line: "Y'all ain't getting shit from me if you're the sort that'd infringe on my rights." -- to paraphrase a bit.

It seems possible to me for TX to be a constitutional carry state. Now ain't the time to be a pussy about it, though.

If you've got something to say, this is a pretty good time to speak up.

Maybe so.
There is another thread where the Sheriffs of New Mexico counties said they would refuse ti enforce red flag laws. They made a difference. Speaking with local law enforcement seems to be better time spent. Same for Virginia.

My county (Bell in central TX) seems to be very 2A friendly and overall conservative in nature. I just hope it stays that way and I will work to keep it that way by supporting and working for like minded candidates.
