Texas Senate Approves Bill For No Permit Gun Carry – Governor Abbott Says He’ll Sign It

This week the Texas senate approved a bill which would allow people over the age of 21 to carry a gun without a permit.

The bill will now go back to the house which is likely to approve it and then to the desk of Republican Governor Greg Abbott.

While Democrats are trying to impose new gun control laws, Republicans in states like Texas are increasing freedom for law abiding gun owners.

The Hill reports:

The legislation passed by an 18-13 margin along party lines Wednesday evening. The bill would allow people 21 and older who can already legally own a gun to carry a handgun in public without the license, safety course and background check current law requires.

The bill now heads to the House, which passed similar legislation earlier this year but will not consider changes the Senate made to the bill before sending it to Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) desk.

The Senate passage of the legislation marks a significant victory for gun rights activists and Republicans, who had seen permitless carry legislation go nowhere in previous legislative sessions.

This is great news. And Abbott is going to sign it.

Will other states follow?
