Unfortunately, Texas is not nearly as supportive of the right to keep and bear arms as many people tend to think. Texas is one of only a handful of states that does not allow the legal open carry of a modern handgun. (That's right, Texas sadly ends up on the same side of the list as California and New York) Open Carry Texas is fighting hard to legalize the open carry of modern handguns in the 2015 legislative session.
We're dedicated to the safe and legal carry of firearms openly in the state of Texas.
On January 26, our voices will be heard by senators and representatives from all over the great state of Texas. We will publicly rally at the Capitol in Austin, Texas and then meet with representatives to encourage them to support HB195, the proposed bill for constitutional carry in Texas. Don't miss this amazing event. This is a chance to make history in the Lone Star state.
By purchasing a ticket, you will have an opportunity to address legislators as an official member of OCT. The event is open to the the public, (after all it is the capitol) but reserving your spot with a ticket provides you with much more, including: and OCT polo shirt, a bag for the event, and tons of promotional materials for your representatives. We will also be raffling away a Mastpiece Arms custom AR pistol. All funds go towards event costs. This is a chance to get in the game and be a key player in bringing constitutional carry to Texas!
Open Carry Texas (OCT) is a non-profit, 501(c)4 organization dedicated to the safe and legal carry of firearms openly in the state of Texas in accordance with the United States and Texas constitutions and other applicable laws.
