The National Association for Gun Rights Calls on Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan to Quickly Send Constitutional Carry to the Governor’s Desk
Texas cleared a major obstacle on May 5, 2021 after the Texas Senate passed Constitutional Carry (House Bill 1927) by a vote of 18-13.
Should HB 1927 receive Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s signature, Texas will be the 21st Constitutional Carry state and make its gun laws among the best in the nation.
“I want to personally thank our grassroots member activists and Texas Gun Rights for their years of hard work to get Constitutional Carry through the Texas legislature,” declared Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Constitutional Carry is the gold standard for gun rights restoration, and Governor Abbott needs to sign HB 1927 into law immediately.”
NAGR’s state affiliate Texas Gun Rights has made the passage of Constitutional Carry a legislative priority.
“Constitutional Carry is an idea whose time has come. In all my years working in Texas, we haven’t had a shot as good as we have right now. But due to additional Senate amendments on HB 1927, House Speaker Dade Phalen must quickly advance the bill to Gov. Abbot’s desk. We are close to seeing final passage of the bill. but we can’t let up until Speaker Phalen gets the bill on Abbott’s desk.” commented TXGR Executive Director Chris McNutt.
Restoring gun rights at the state and local level is one of NAGR’s specialites, especially during a time when anti-gun Democrats hold a trifecta in Washington, D.C.
“The Biden administration is relentlessly attacking the right to keep and bear arms. It is vitally important for states like Texas to step up and keep gun rights moving forward on the state level. Joe Biden and his gun control extremist pals are quite frankly ignorant when it comes to firearms and gun rights. Month after month, new gun and ammunition sales records are being set, with no end in sight. Millions are first time buyers and these people don’t want their gun rights screwed with.” asserted Brown.
On April 27, 2021, Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared that he would sign Constitutional Carry into law if the bill arrives at his desk. After the Senate’s passage of Constitutional Carry, Texas is well on its way to being the 21st state in the nation to better recognize what ‘shall not be infringed’ actually means.
At the moment, NAGR and TXGR are calling on Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan to iron out Constitutional Carry and bring it to Governor Abbott’s desk.
