Texas will vote on five (5) 'second amendment' bills this session.

Senate Bill 18, by Sen. Brandon Creigton (R-Conroe), establishes that firearm and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers and retailers are essential businesses that shall not be prohibited by state or local officials from operating during a declared disaster or emergency. This bill ensures that law-abiding Texans can exercise their constitutional right to purchase and own firearms during future disasters or emergencies, regardless of any statewide or local officeholder's personal politics.
Elevates guns and bullets to the same level as medical care, food and shelter.

Senate Bill 19, by Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown), discourages banks, payment processors, insurers, and other financial services providers from discriminating against members of the firearm and ammunition industries. The legislation prohibits businesses that engage in this practice from contracting with governmental entities in the Lone Star State. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to benefit the bottom-line of corporations that are actively working to erode the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.
Infringes first amendment rights of financial institutions to choose how and who they financially support.

Senate Bill 20, by Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels), protects the ability of hotel guests to lawfully possess handguns and ammunition in their rooms, and to transport them directly en route between their vehicles and their rooms. Hotels frequently fail to include information on their websites, or in reservation notices, to inform guests about restrictive firearm policies. This forces gun owners, upon arrival, to consider leaving their firearms in their cars or trucks and make them susceptible to theft, in order to comply with policies they knew nothing of in advance.
I thought Texas respected property rights. Guess not.

Senate Bill 550, by Sen. Drew Springer (R-Muenster), eliminates the requirement that a holster for an openly-carried handgun by a License To Carry holder be a belt or shoulder holster. This change will allow LTCs who carry openly to choose the type of holster that best suits their personal situation and self-defense needs.
So with this bill just stuffing yer gun in yer belt is okay? May not be so bad as these nuts blow their nuts off and don't proliferate . . .

Senate Bill 1253, by Sen. Bob Hall (R-Edgewood), affirmatively preserves the ability of Texans to obtain a License To Carry for reciprocal purposes with other states, even if the licensing requirement for lawful carry of a handgun is eliminated.​
So, even if Texas decides to stop licensing gunners to carry it has to comply with any state that allows it? Gee, we were once our own country, with this we won't even be our own state.
