I’m Scottish, and we’re pay off Britain. 100 years ago, or gun laws were even more lax than in USA, but it’s changed so much, and for the worse. Common Law is only recognised for cops, and lots of guns are banned, and defence. However, Lots of work shoes all our rights are actually still there, but hidden in plain sight, and the chips just don’t obey any laws in firearms licencing.
As a born and bred Texan, I am happy to see fellow Texans exercise their God given right to carry a firearm. It still really irks me though, that I am required to get a permission slip from the State for a right, I already have. It all may change if hillary is elected. She is hell bent on repealing the Second Amendment and could select three Supreme Court Justices.
Proud to be a Floridian for the first time since I moved here 13 years ago.
Umm, hello, what about Bexar county? You point out Travis but not Bexar? Really?
Anyway, good news as usual about Texas, and thanks for the great work CPRC does.
I’ve had my concealed permit for over a year. and amazingly it hasn’t ever just “gone off” as some news reports claim.
if “they” come for my weapons – they will be informed that they all sadly are lost in that horrible boating accident last weekend.
