Texas: House Versions of NRA-Backed Employee/Parking Lot & Campus Carry Legislation Filed This Week!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Last week, we reported to you that two NRA-backed bills had already been filed in the Texas Senate: Senate Bill 321 by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy), legislation prohibiting employers from enforcing policies against the storage of lawfully-owned firearms in employees' private motor vehicles parked at work, and Senate Bill 354 by state Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio), a bill to allow Concealed Handgun Licenses to protect themselves on college and university campuses.  This week, state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington) introduced House Bill 681, the House version of the parking lot bill, and state Representative Joe Driver (R-Garland) filed House Bill 750, the House version of the campus carry measure.

Corporate policies that prohibit workers from safely storing their firearms inside their cars and trucks parked on company parking lots have the effect of denying employees the right to protect themselves during their commute to and from work every day.  State laws and administrative policies disarming CHLs at institutions of higher education leave trained, law-abiding citizens vulnerable to a violent attack and have no deterrent effect on criminals.

Big business interests and liberal higher education administrators have a tremendous amount of influence in the Texas Legislature - and they will vigorously oppose these bills.  That's why it's critical that your state lawmakers hear from you!  Please contact your 
state Representatives and urge them to sign on as co-authors to both HB 681 and HB 750.  Contact information for state House members can be found at
