    Summary of the 84th legislative session

    Open carry for license holders passed! HB910 removes the requirement to conceal (except for campuses, including the grounds). Same places off limits apply to concealed and open carry (in a shoulder or belt holster). Goes into effect in January 2016.

    Campus carry passed! SB11 will not let public universities and colleges to have a blanket prohibition against concealed carry for permit holders. Private higher education institutions can prohibit you with a 30.06 from the entire property..... Good first step..... Goes into effect in September.

    Government building signage SB273 passed! Currently a lot of government properties where it is legal to carry post a 30.06 as a bluff... The Dallas Central appraisal building is one of them, where its attorney told me he knows it's not enforceable, but will leave the sign up as a bluff because he can. Now this bill allows us to write a complaint to the respective governmental entity and if we don't get a quick response (I think it was 3 days) we can submit a complaint to the attorney general who will investigate and send a notice to the government agency giving it 15 days to remove (for first time offenders) and then the fines will keep coming in..... every day a separate violation.... first violation 1000, subsequent 10,000-10,5000 per day..... If the attorney general has to sue to collect the government agency will be responsible for the attorney general incurred costs, too..... I really like this law! Goes into effect in September.

    Class 3 devices law SB473 passed. It revised Penal code 46.05 clarifying the legality of it (if properly registered). September 1st......

    Constitutional Amendment to affirm the individual right to hunt and fish will be on this year's November ballot!

    Alice Tripp from Texas State Rifle Association worked hard on these priority bills and her experience in dealing with these game playing politicians was invaluable...... Bloomberg jokers spent a fortune with their front groups and got their asses handed to them! Good work!

    It gives me great satisfaction to know nazi Bloomberg suffered such huge defeats this year. I know tears are salty, but MDA's taste so sweet! Maybe this will help wake up Fl and SC's pro gun legislators to push for OC

    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
