Opening Day Petition Delivery

Government derives its power from the Consent Of The Governed yet the Republican Party of Texas has turned a deaf ear to voiced consent or dissent and opted to rule as Oligarchs drawing power from the “implied consent” of the Silent Texans. In a government designed to REPRESENT the people, there is only one way to do that, LISTEN to the people. In 2014, at the Texas Republican Convention, the people’s delegates spoke loudly and UNANIMOUSLY making Constitutional Carry a legislative priority in the 84th Legislature a part of the Republican party platform. In 2015, on Day One of the opening of the legislative session, the people again spoke loudly both in person and in writing in support of Constitutional Carry. Over 100,000 petitions were delivered to House and Senate Representatives in favor of Constitutional Carry.

GOP Establishment Kills Constitutional Carry Bill Amid Backlash From Conservatives

In 2nd Amendment, Articles, Concealed Carry, Constitution, Open Carry, Politics by Staff Writer0 Comments

Good News and Bad News for gun owners comes out of Texas on Friday, April 17th. The Texas House has given initial approval for the Licensed Open Carry Bill (HB910) amid an onslaught of Democrat-proposed amendments to water it down from it’s already inconsequential state. With a vote of 96 For and 35 Against, final approval is expected Monday, April 20th. However, the Democrat amendment barrage was NOT the big story of the day. In Biblical, David vs. Goliath fashion, Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) took on the Texas GOP establishment in an attempt to file an amendment that would make the Bill a Constitutional Carry Bill and make the permit requirement voluntary. Unlike the David vs. Goliath story though, Rep. Stickland was unsuccessful. However, he did get the GOP establishment to show their true colors.

Texas Legislature Passes Open Carry

In Open Carry by Patrick James0 Comments

The Texas Legislature has passed Licensed Open Carry with one more ‘formal’ vote remaining before the bill is sent to Governor Greg Abbott. While we are excited that Texas is moving the right direction, we would like to warn you against giving the left what they want –  for us to accept this victory and loosen our grip on the failing Progressive agenda. 

Licensed Open Carry is a compromise. If you are a resident of Texas, it should go without saying that you should not be happy that your elected statesmen have compromised in regard to your Constitutional Rights. Anything less than Constitutional Carry is an infringement upon our rights as a Free People. Texas should be a leader in the realm of Pro-Gun Politics. It is encouraging to see that Texas’ Gun Laws are moving in the right direction – away from its longstanding infringing similarities to laws in leftist strongholds like New York and California.
