Texas House passes 12 firearms bills on ‘gun day’

"AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas House approved a batch of bills Saturday to further soften gun laws that were already among the country’s most firearms-friendly, allowing college students to carry handguns in class, putting potentially armed marshals in public schools and exempting the state from any future federal bans on assault rifles, high-capacity magazines or universal background checks."


It will be interesting to see how many of these become law.

All 12 of these amendments are watered down. They suck.

Gun laws are way more lose here in Indiana, I can open carry here and legally conceal on any college campus.

Texas has an undeserved / under-deserved reputation for firearms freedom.

I have handgun licenses in both Indiana and Texas but I would be arrested in Texas if I carried my guns openly there the way I do here in Indiana.

I lived in Texas 17 years and it is very much a police state down there.

Now what we need is for Ron Paul to be Governor

and enforce this....

Rep. Gene Wu, a Houston Democrat, went further on Twitter, saying, “In case your head is too thick to understand: State law will not trump federal law.”

What was that about "all other rights reserved to the states or the people"? Rep. Gene Wu must have missed that.
