    Hopeful, But?

    I would like to see an open carry bill passed, along with campus carry (even though concealed only) in the Great State of Texas very soon. But as a pragmatist, pessimist, and the worry-wart that I am, it is my belief that something will derail this bill with everyone blaming everyone else for the problem. Or, perhaps, something will be added to the bill with wording that can be interpreted many ways. Then, some Judge will temporarily put a stop on its enactment tying it up in the court for years. I am jealous of you guys and gals who are optimistic. You probably think Mayweather v Pacquiao is going to happen on May 2nd.

    OC has been a long time coming to Texas - looks like the best opportunity yet.

    I was in Texas several years ago and had to CC......it made me feel so dirty. Look forward to the day and can go back and exercise my RKBA as intended.

    Thank you to all that have been working so diligently on this over the years.
