Gun bills inch forward in Texas Legislature

Anna Tinsley for the Star-Telegram reports:

Both the House and the Senate have approved two hotly debated measures to expand gun rights by letting licensed Texans openly carry holstered handguns statewide and bring concealed handguns on any college campus.

But with less than a week left in the session, the bills aren’t going to Gov. Greg Abbott, who has said he would sign both into law. Instead, open carry now heads to a conference committee, and campus carry goes back to the Senate.

Supporters say there’s plenty of time to make sure the measures become law. Opponents plan to do everything they can to prevent that.

Let’s hope Texans are able to pass these bills! Read the full story at the Star-Telegram.
