Establishment Senator in Texas Guts Pro-Gun Bill

Published

Lone Star Gun Rights reports that an establishment Republican in the Texas Senate is gutting a pro-gun bill.

Earlier in May, the Texas House passed HB 1177, a bill that allows the carry of a handgun without a license during a disaster declaration.

In an email to its members, LSGR Senior Editor Derek Wills chimed in on this bill:

It was crumbs of freedom being returned to us, but certain Senators felt that those crumbs were too much.

Senator Joan Huffman, whose Senate District overlaps with Constitutional Cary-killer Dennis Bonnen’s district, amended the bill to just allow for 48 hours of carry without a license. According to Wills, Huffman “decided that 168 hours was too long for someone evacuating a disaster area to carry without the State-issued permission slip.”

Wills reveals that it is too late to have Huffman’s amendment reversed. If passed, Wills contends that this bill “will still be a tiny crumb returned to us, but take that for what it is.”

2019 has been a disappointing year for Second Amendment supporters in Texas. With House Speaker Dennis Bonnen killing Constitutional Carry, 2021 will be the earliest that this law could be passed.
