    Open carry in Texas

    We are having a rally at the Capitol in Austin, Tx on Jan. 13th @ 7:30 AM. It is to support open carry legislation. All are welcome to come. No long guns, empty holsters, or toy or fake guns, please. Have t-shirts and signs if you like.

    Sounds like good ground rules

    Please post a followup about how many people come, what sort of reaction if any people seem to have, etc.

    I don't live there any more, but hope that Texas gets open carry one day ... maybe some of the reason it doesn't is defensiveness about being the one state in the union that people in the other states probably associate most with everyone carrying guns around

    It will be interesting to see how the legislature responds to public support for open carry.

    7:30 a.m.?! Isn't that a tad early? If it were at noon or so, more people would be willing to come.

    As far as I know...none of the representatives have even stepped up to support the bill. You can find out more information at http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum66/20127.html

    I thought I read where a San Antonio legislator is sponsoring this bill. If so, who is he?
