HB 972 & HB 1076 Pass House, Sent to Senate!

HB 972 (Campus Carry) and HB 1076 (protection from federal Second Amendment infringements) have passed the Texas House of Representatives and have been sent to the Senate.

HB 972 was significantly watered down, giving public and private universities the option to opt out of allowing licensed concealed carry. However, the bill at least protects students who keep concealed weapons locked in their vehicles on campus. This is a good start, and an accomplishment to be proud of.

Once these bills are assigned to a Senate Committee, we will post an update.
