HB195: Unlicensed carrying of a handgun

“…HB195 is not limited to carrying a handgun openly. If it were to pass in its as-filed form, Texans could carry a handgun openly or concealed without a CHL.”

via HB195: Unlicensed carrying of a handgun.

Charles Cotton has posted a summary on HB195, a bill filed with the current Legislature authorizing the carrying of handguns openly or concealed, without a CHL in the state of Texas. But Cotton also lists a number of concerns about the bill as written that he indicates will create legal problems for gun owners.

22 June 2014 Podcast

The June 22, 2014 podcast is up. Special thanks to Mr. Charles Cotton of the Texas Firearms Coalition and National Rifle Association Board of Directors for joining us in studio today. We would also like to thank for Mr. Terry Holcomb and CJ Grisham for calling into today’s discussion on open carry.

Charles Cotton joins us in studio today, 5pm – 7pm on KSEV am 700

Last week, Terry Holcomb, Executive Director of Texas Carry was kind enough to join us to discuss the real reasons behind recent Open Carry demonstrations in Texas. Whether we agree with their methods or not, the one thing that became abundantly clear in our discussion with Mr. Holcomb is that the real reason and message behind the Open Carry protests have been lost through the mainstream media coverage. Worse, there are folks playing into the mainstream media’s hands exercising their rights in poor taste. But Mr. Holcomb also challenged the Texas State Rifle Association for their advocacy for the 2nd Amendment in Texas and their commitment to securing the rights of Texans to keep and bear arms. So with that said, Charles Cotton has agreed to join us in studio to offer a different perspective on the Open Carry protests and the debate with regard to the practice in general.
