U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Friday afternoon, the Texas Senate concurred with House amendments and gave final approval to two pro-Second Amendment bills strongly supported by NRA-ILA and prioritized by Lt. Governor Dan Patrick:

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.

Senate Bill 20by Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels), protects the ability of hotel guests to store lawfully possessed firearms 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 firearms 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.

Thank you to the Senate sponsors of these measures and to the House authors of SB 19, Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Southlake), and SB 20, Rep. Cole Hefner (R-Mount Pleasant), for their hard work to pass these important bills, and to Lt. Governor Patrick for prioritizing this key legislation!

The Legislature will adjourn sine die on Monday, May 31.  We will send out a full report on pro-Second Amendment legislation passed and anti-gun bills defeated during the 87th Regular Session next week.  Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

hotel room once rented is same as apartment, so they can say what they want but anti discrimination laws would also keep them from black listing you, nice racist terms, white list ,blacklist jim crow stuff that should not be changed so people remember they can restrict open carry in public areas of hotel , but not to and from room

Hotel house rules prohibiting firearms are already unenforceable. Upon renting you a room, that room becomes a legal extension of your “castle”.

Very true but it’s funny to see sheep obey other sheep. Next thing ya know all the sheep are wearing muzzles and enforcing it on each other. If sheep wonder if they would have complied to Hitler now they know. All they had to do to disarm the sheep is put a decal on the door although I have never seen one.

In Colorado the Governor is busy ramming his husband in the ass while attacking Americans so yeah TX looks pretty good. Rights there still need to be restored to non-violent offenders but your progress is stellar.
