Texas counts down the hours until new Open Carry law takes effect

7 posts in this topic

Gun rights supporters in Texas counted down the hours, minutes and seconds to New Year's Day, because when the clock strikes midnight, licensed firearms owners in the Lone Star State can openly carry their handguns in public.

The non-profit group Open Carry Texas, which supports the law, posted a countdown on its website.

Texas already allows openly carrying rifles and shotguns, but has banned having handguns visible since just after the Civil War. On New Year's Day, it'll be the 45th and largest state to sanction some form of open carry, with California, Florida, Illinois, New York and South Carolina still banning it.

Let's see how many criminals have the same amount of "courage" they had before people walked around with a gun on their hip where they could see it.

Maybe this is bizarre thinking, but... just theorizing here... would a false flag in an open carry state on the level of Texas be the be all end all clincher for gun control?

I think that kind of thing would blow up in the faces of those who tried.

Don't mess with Texas. 

But do drive friendly. That's what their signs say.
