The Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA) should be solidly behind this movement instead of laying lazy asleep under a shadow tree somewhere.
The Texas CHL Association, instead of opposing and dragging their feet on this issue, should also be behind this movement prodding and kicking the TSRA until unrestricted open carry is allow in Texas. Why are they not ? Maybe their so leaders are protecting their job security as conceal handgun license instructors - training instructors and students instead of protecting the Rights of Texans !
Pro 2A lobbies (NRA, GOA, SAF, CCRKBA, SAS, etc) and other Pro 2A Organizations which are not lobbies (MSSA, Gun clubs,Hunt clubs)- it is theirDUTY and their members DUTY to protect all"ARMS" (firearms, knives, tomahawks, etc) - we must root out evil where ever it is found, regardless of the organization.
Since 1909 (at least), we have been on a slope of downward movement in the REPUBLIC (notice I did not say democracy) with freedom and liberty being tossed out with the bath water just like a baby due to this kind of thinking - "only serves to alienate 2A'sdemocratic allies" - forget the "PC Crapola", there has been too much comprise and giving away CITIZENS Rights, Liberty, Freedom, and out Tax Dollars in the USA and overseas.
Gun Control is People Control - look to Europe to Asia to Africa to the USA and anywhere else in the world. In the last 100 years, 55 million Citizens and Subjects around the world of their own country have been killed by their own government.
To borrow the words, "They are either against us or with us", "no riding the fence", and in 1968 - "there's not a dime's worth of difference between a republican and a democrat".
Every True Real American not just "ARMS" owners (80,000,000 plus) should be members of the U.S. Constitutional Party, then we would win every election and get this country turned around 180 degrees headed in the Right Correct direction. The Silent Majority has been silent for far too long - at least 100 years.
Did you know TEXAS in 1873, while TEXAS Citizens were still fighting Indians, the Carpet Bagger Blue Belly so called ReConstruction Yankees in charge of TEXAS, outlawed OPEN CARRY in TEXAS !
