Texas Lawmaker Files ‘Constitutional Carry’ Legislation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

While Texas has a strong reputation for being gun-friendly, some of its laws regarding carrying firearms are much more stringent than a number of other states. 

Enter Representative Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg), who has filed legislation seeking to expand Texan’s ability to lawfully carry handguns, without a license.

Biederman’s legislation, H.B.1238, would allow Texans who can otherwise legally own and possess a gun to carry it without a license, known as constitutional carry. 

Constitutional carry has been a legislative priority for the Republican Party of Texas for the past several sessions, however, lawmakers have thus far refused to move the legislation forward. 

Biedermann issued a statement regarding his legislation, pointing out the rise in crime and how over 70 counties have passed resolutions declaring themselves ‘second amendment sanctuaries.’

“Self-defense is a fundamental right of all humans and you should not have to rely on the government to access that right”, Biedermann wrote in his statement.
