Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America says they are “prepared to fight” the passage of open carry legislation in the state of Texas.

Breitbart News previously reported that on November 5–the day after the midterm elections–Texas Governor-elect Greg Abbott (R) gave a press conference in which he made it clear he will sign a bill to legalize the open carry of handguns as soon as the legislature passes it.

Within days, Texas state Representative James White (R-Dist. 19) answered the call and put forward HB 164–a bill which would give everyone with a concealed carry permit the option to carry their handguns openly if they so choose. This is how the open carry law in Missouri works.

And state Representative Jonathan Strickland (R-Dist. 92) introduced legislation that would allow Texans to carry openly without a permit, which is how the open carry law in Mississippi works.

San Antonio’s WOAI reports that Moms Demand Action is ready to fight the passage of both these bills. The Bloomberg-funded gun control group claims open carry “will make it a lot tougher for police to tell the ‘good guys’ from the ‘bad guys’ on city streets.”

Shannon Watts is like a mouse crawling up an Elephants leg with rape on it’s mind.

Why would the police have more trouble telling the good guys from the bad guys? Bad guys are easily identified by their bad behavior. If no one is acting “bad” then there is no need to identify anyone, and anyone carrying openly should be assumed to be a good guy until they prove otherwise. That’s how our system works (or is supposed to anyhow). If this were actually a significant problem, then why haven’t the police been having trouble with it for many decades now in those (the vast majority of them) states that already allow open carry (and have… Read more »

It is not the responsibility of the citizen to make the police’s job easier by relinquishing certain rights in order to do so.
Nothing against the police, but they exist to serve US, we don’t exist to serve THEM.
And Moms Demand Attention has no say in the matter whatsoever. The last I checked, the Texas legislature and governorship is controlled by Republicans, and Shannon Watts is an official of neither.

Very well put. In Virginia we’ve had open carry without a permit for well over 100 years. It’s common place to see folks open carrying and there is no problem except for a curious stare from out-of-staters who wish they could in their home states.
