    Texas Constitutional Carry in 2017?

    Representative Strickland has filed HB-375 " Texas Constitutional Carry Act " for the Texas Legislature to consider in 2017.

    It would allow anyone in Texas that is legal to own a handgun to carry concealed or open should they desire with no license required.

    The Texas Legislature convines January 20, 2017.

    It looks like HB 375 updates TGC 411.207 as follows:

    "The mere possession or carrying of a handgun, openly or concealed, with or without a license issued under this subchapter, shall not constitute reasonable belief for a peace officer to disarm or detain an otherwise law-abiding person."

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    I am with you in that I like some vetting and training to occur similar to operating a motor vehicle.

    The risk could be greatly reduced however if laws were passed for long prison terms for those using a firearm in the commission of a crime. There would simply be fewer reasons that someone who is not experienced in the use of a gun to have to deploy one in their self defense.

    It is difficult to gain the truth from the media in this age. It is a huge puzzle with small pieces. In order to solve it, one must have perseverance, all of the pieces, imagination, time, and most of all...the desire to put the picture together. Our real trouble is that there are far too few people today with the desire to do this.

    Vetting--checking to make sure the person has actually been law-abiding.

    I'd say "no" to a requirement for training for purchasing a gun--as it now is. Let Darwin handle stupidity.

    But carrying a gun in public? Ideologically, one might argue no, but in that case the idiot is taking his stupidity out into public. I think there is a valid public safety issue in that case.

    The ability to buy a firearm and take it to the range is like buying a vehicle and driving it on private property. These are essential parts of our freedom here. I think we agree that when that vehicle is operated in proximity of pedestrians, other vehicles and personal property that is the point when the public has a right to know that the operator is qualified to do that in a safe manner.

    I want to be somewhat assured that the person carrying their gun has the ability to come close to an intended target and leave the bystanders unperforated.
