It only takes 1 person to sue in court. In TX it is a criminal act to carry a loaded handgun. Is that law too broad?
"Few laws in the history of our Nation have come close to the severe restriction of the District’s handgun ban. And some of those few have been struck down. In Nunn v. State, the Georgia Supreme Court struck down a prohibition on carrying pistols openly (even though it upheld a prohibition on carrying concealed weapons). See 1 Ga., at 251. In Andrews v. State, the Tennessee Supreme Court likewise held that a statute that forbade openly carrying a pistol “publicly or privately, without regard to time or place, or circumstances,” 50 Tenn., at 187, violated the state constitutional provision (which the court equated with the Second Amendment). That was so even though the statute did not restrict the carrying of long guns."
Why can't the issue of constitutional carry be brought up for a *public* vote instead of waiting for our brain-dead legislature to get around to it?
Welcome to Texas. Been voting long?
"Referendum" means a bill that originates in the legislature, and is voted on by the electorate. "Initiative" means a bill that is placed directly on the ballot without the legislature, and is voted on by the electorate.
Texas has neither.
The only thing Texans vote on besides candidates, are amendments to the state constitution.
