On Thursday, February 26, State Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio) introduced Senate Bill 1164, Texas’ Campus Carry Bill. On the House side, State Representative Joe Driver filed an identical companion bill, House Bill 1893.
SB 1164 and HB 1893 would grant persons licensed to carry a concealed handgun the right to do so on any college campus. These bills are an important expansion of Texas’ Right-to-Carry freedoms.
SB 1164 and HB 1893 have yet to be assigned to a committee, so please continue to check your email and www.NRAILA.org for further updates.
In the mean time please call your Senators and urge them to support SB 1164, and contact your Representatives and urge them to support HB 1893. Contact information can be found at http://www.senate.state.tx.us and www.house.state.tx.us
