Welcome to OCDO!
It is certainly our job to remind people that you can't ban crime because it's already illegal, rather you must level the playing field, and I think that's what unlicensed OC in El Paso could amount to.
The main thing that has to be done, is people need to get active if open carry is to happen in Texas. Yes, I know, many of you are already, but the more the better.
The nice thing you have in Texas, is many people have a solid understanding that one bullet in the hands of a good person has the same value as one dead bad guy.
The not so nice thing is that in the southwest, few people are enthusiastic or eager to do much of anything quickly. Things are laid back. But if you can get the support of dozens or even hundreds of people, you can help make a real ruckus and get legislation moving more quickly.
