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.
For the first time in Texas history, open carry (SB17) and campus carry (SB11) legislation passed a full Senate on a party line vote, 20-11. The legislation now heads to the House where similar bills (HB910 & HB 937) have already passed a key committee vote for the first time in history as well.
Open Carry Texas is the tip of the spear in the fight for gun rights in Texas. Join now and stay updated on developments. There is no cost to join us!
