Well it did not take our new Governor Greg Abbott long to act on one of his campaign promises. Open Carry of a Handgun (with aPermit) may be coming to Texas very soon. While it is currently legal to openly carry a long arm, our New Governor saw fit to have Texas POSSIBLY join the majority of the rest of the country that allows Open Carry of a Handgun with a Permit. (See Map of States HERE).
Although personally I am not a fan of Open Carry (I feel Concealed Carry offers the CO more advantage.) I fully support the passing of Open Carry as a 2nd Amendment right and privilege.
