I was on here quite a bit when the Texas movement was strong awhile back, and I literally informed people about this website, and the movement on a daily basis (as I was working for Gander Mountain in the fire arms department at the time). I was excited, and so were almost every gun owner, or new gun owner who came in the store. I couldn't believe how many people thought it was a great idea! I wrote letters to the Texas senator, and along with my districts house rep. I wrote letters to Rick Perry (Gov.), and anyone else I could think of. It seemed like Texas was going strong, and was going to get open carry!
Then it just seemed like it all fell apart. Did everyone give up?
Honestly, I had not thought about it much since a year ago, until someone told me today that California is voting on legalizing marijuana....
I stopped and thought... wait a second... people thought that responsible citizens, who have passed an FBI back ground check, and have a concealed handgun license, and already carry concealed, would be a bad idea to simply allow them the option to open carry, BUT, it is a good idea to allow EVERY numb nut in California to be able to legally buy, and smoke marijuana? And if it has made it to a vote, then it made it further then "open carry" made it here in Texas. I'm sorry, but that REALLY pisses me off! I can't openly, responsibly carry a handgun, but some stoner in Cali can get high? What the hell is wrong with people now?
Please tell me someone has a upcoming plan of action or a new approach to get open carry to pass in Texas.
