Earlier today, Governor Greg Abbott signed HB 910 and SB 11, which expand Texans’ Second Amendment rights. Both bills implement proposals in the Governor’s Bicentennial Blueprint.
HB 910, the “Open Carry” bill, authorizes individuals with a license to carry a holstered handgun openly in all locations that allow the licensed carrying of a concealed handgun. SB 11, known as “Campus Carry,” authorizes individuals with a license to carry a concealed handgun to do so on college campuses.
“Today I am proud to expand liberty in the Lone Star State,” said Governor Abbott. “By signing these bills into law, Texans can be assured that their Second Amendment rights will be stronger and more secure than ever before.”
