Texas: House Passes Two NRA-Backed Bills This Week

This week, the Texas House passed two pro-Second Amendment measures to further protect your rights in the Lone Star State.  Thank you to House Republican leaders for scheduling this key legislation for a vote and to those State Representatives who supported the bills!

House Bill 121, NRA-supported legislation by Rep. Valoree Swanson (R-Spring), provides a legal defense for License To Carry holders who unknowingly enter establishments with 30.06 or 30.07 signs, as long they promptly leave when verbally informed of the policy.  HB 121 passed on third reading by a 119-25 vote.  Click here to see how your State Representative voted on the bill.

House Bill 302, an NRA-backed measure by Rep. Dennis Paul (R-Houston), protects the rights of tenants to possess lawfully-owned firearms and ammunition in residential units, and to transport them directly en route between their personal vehicles and their apartments or condominiums.  Provisions relating to commercial tenants and leases were removed from the bill, but protections for tenants on manufactured home lots were added, so that it now mirrors the Senate version.  HB 302 passed on third reading by a 101-44 vote.  Click here to see how your State Representative voted on the measure.
