Texas Senate Committee To Consider Clarification to Right-To-Carry Legislation!

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Please call the Senate Criminal Justice Committee Today!


Tomorrow afternoon, Thursday, May 17, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee will consider House Bill 1815 by Representative Carl Isett (R-Lubbock) and Senator Juan Hinojosa (D-McAllen). 


This important NRA-supported measure will clarify, once and for all, that it is legal to transport a handgun in your motor vehicle for personal protection without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL), provided you are eligible to possess the firearm under state and federal law, you are not a member of a criminal street gang, and you are not committing any criminal activity at the time (other than a traffic violation,) and as long as the handgun is hidden from plain view. 


Please contact the members of the committee below first thing Thursday morning and urge them to support HB 1815:


Chairman John Whitmire




Vice-Chairman Kel Seliger




Sen. John Carona




Sen. Bob Deuell




Sen. Glenn Hegar
