    2007, Petition For Open Carry In Texas

    Hello everyone. I have started a petition to the State Legislature and Gov Perry for the open carry of handguns in Texas. Please take a look.

    You can also join the Texas Citizen Defense League at www.txcdl.org and help to fight for your Constitutional rights.

    Please tell everyone you know about this petition. We should not have to ask permission, nor should we be limited to concealed carry, to protect ourselves, our friends, and family.

    Sincerely,
    Ian

    What Constitutional rights are you referring too?

    Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.

    ~Texas Constitution

    Good luck to you all! Arkansas started theirs about four weeks ago. Almost 200 sigs thus far. I'll be spreading the word more at this weekend's local gun show. I could only hope for the domino effect to kick in and see 1000 sigs by the end of the year!

    I agree. Good idea but I think that the CHL law was probably as good as it gets.

    Lord knows with all the bullets flying from across the border there. It should not be a question, it's only a matter of time when. Now with Hezbollah confirmed in Mexico hanging out with the drug cartels, it will get alot more difficult to live without fear for the safety of one's family and one's self. Good luck to all on the border states.

    Realize this petition was turned in at the last legislative session in TX and did not pass (look at how old this thread is).
