Bill/Issue: TX HB 1177 - Permits Unlicensed Carrying in Public Following a Disaster

  • Position: Support
  • Author: Asm. Phelan (R-21)

HB 1177 would allow law-abiding people to carry a handgun in most places within a disaster area for seven days after a disaster is declared. This will permit people to protect themselves and their property from looters and other opportunistic criminals in the disaster area.

UPDATE: HB 1177 passed into law!
