Texas: Campus Carry bill to be Heard Monday!

Friday, March 27, 2009

Please Contact The Members of the House Public Safety Committee Today!

On Monday, March 30, the House Public Safety Committee will consider House Bill 1893, legislation that would allow valid Concealed Handgun Licensees to protect themselves on Texas college and university campuses.

Please call the committee members and urge them to support HB 1893 with no gutting amendments. Law-abiding citizens with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) should not be denied their right to self-defense just because they work or study on the campus of a postsecondary educational institution!

Please contact the members of the House Public Safety Committee listed below and respectfully urge them support HB 1893 with no gutting amendments.
