Back and Forth on Open Carry
Our sister site GunReports.com recently reported on a Texas bill that would permit concealed handgun license holders to carry openly. Curiously, Texas is one of only seven states that does not have some form of an open-carry law. Under Rep. George Lavenders (R-Texarkana) bill, CHL holders could carry their weapon openly if it was in a holster. 'We have a constitutional right to bear arms, and in many ways, its being infringed on,' Rep. Lavender said. In the comments section under that story, there was a lot of back and forth about the topicwith some of the points covering areas I hadnt considered before.
