As a card carrying dinosaur I remember when most of the pickups, scouts and jeeps I saw in Texas had rifles or shotguns in racks and I opened carried during my time down there. Then they got silly and protected the people by doing away with all that silly gun toting stuff. I am glad to see them finally becoming a part of the free Republic again. Kind of sad when the drug cartel mules can cross the border and are better armed than the man on the street.
You would think after Hennard shot up Luby's restaurant in Killeen Texas and had time to shoot, reload and shoot some more and nobody could defend themselves that Texas would have learned a lesson. I guess there is nothing more obstinate than a politician who fears guns.
I hope the little lady wins, my brother is down in the DFW area and the only time he is able to defend himself is if he happens to be home. As a long haul truck driver that isn't often. As it is right now I have zero interest to go back down there but then its almost as bad here in Wisconsin. I have the legal right but if I open carry I will be arrested, my gun confiscated and I will have to face the judge on a disturbing the public charge and fight to get my gun back. You gotta love it.
