Open Carry In Texas One Step Closer

After turning back last-minute attempts to let city voters opt out, the Texas House gave final approval Monday to legislation allowing gun owners with concealed weapons licenses to carry their side arms openly.

House Bill 910, by Rep. Larry Phillips, R- Sherman, passed on third reading 101-42. Similar legislation has already passed the Senate, and Gov. Greg Abbott has promised to sign open carry legislation. Source: Texas Tribune

Back in January, I was watching SB11 and HB937, relating to concealed carry on college campuses, but thanks to lobbying by Open Carry Texas and the NRA, SB11 and HB910 seem to be doing well. Both bills would relax the concealment requirement of the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holders.
