Attention Texas Gun Owners: Employee Protection/Parking Lot Companion Legislation Filed in House This Week!

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Last week we reported to you that State Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) had introduced Senate Bill 730, NRA-backed legislation allowing employees to store legally-owned firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work.  This week, State Representative Stephen Frost (D- Atlanta) filed House Bill 1301, the House companion bill to SB 730!

Like SB 730, HB 1301 would prevent employers from making you choose between your personal safety and keeping your job.  Big business and industry representatives will pull out all the stops to defeat this measure.  It's time to find out whether your State Representatives stand with corporate executives who make decisions about your personal safety from a boardroom, or whether your elected officials stand with hard-working Texans who simply wish to exercise their right to lawfully transport firearms in their cars and trucks -- a right recognized under state law that employers' "No Firearms" policies clearly conflict with.

Please call your State Representative in their capitol office and respectfully urge them to co-author and support HB 1301.  Be sure to let your State Representative know that the Oklahoma and Louisiana Legislatures have already passed similar laws; it's time that the Texas Legislature do the same.  Contact information for House members can be found by clicking here.  If you don't know who your State Representative is, you can use the "Find Your Legislator" tool at the same web address.

Also, if you have a compelling story to tell your State Representative about your work situation -- a lengthy commute, odd-hour shifts, a potentially dangerous parking situation at work -- by all means, share it with them in an email; but try to keep the communication short and to the point, and be certain to put "Please Support HB 1301" in the subject line of your email so they immediately know what bill you're contacting them about.
