Open Carry 4 Texas

Texas is one of only SIX states in the entire United States that completely bans open carry of handguns. Representative Debbie Riddle (R – Houston) will soon introduce historic legislation to restore the right to open carry handguns in Texas.

So if you know anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Texas, now is the time to contact them and urge them to sign the open carry petition for Texas at http://www.petitiononline.com/texasoc/petition.html

Time is short and this Bill may die if there are not enough citizen signatures.

Pass this info along to all your e-mail contacts.

According to MySan Antonio.com, “OpenCarry.org — advocating the change in Texas law. The group, which has raised more than $10,000 online to buy radio and billboard ads across the state, also says it has collected more than 53,000 Texas signatures in an online petition ...”

Here’s a message from Mike Stollenwerk and John Pierce, Co-founders, OpenCarry.org. – a national pro-gun group.

Open Carriers Across America:
Representative Riddle (R – Houston) will soon introduce historic legislation to restore the right to open carry handguns in Texas. But that does not mean the fight is over – it’s just beginning. That’s why we need to drive up the signature count on the petition for Texas at http://www.petitiononline.com/texasoc/petition.html


And all Americans can help just like in 1836 when volunteers came from many states to help Texas fight and ultimately defeat an invading Mexican Army.


So if you known anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Texas, now is the time to contact them and urge them to sign the open carry petition for Texas at http://www.petitiononline.com/texasoc/petition.html


The petition is now at over 54,000 signatures but we need to drive that signature count well North of 55,000 in the coming days to send a clear signal to Austin that open carry needs to be passed this year.


And if you blog in Texas, or can spare a few moments to add this message and/or the petition link to Texas blogs, please do so immediately. And remind folks to use valid email addresses so that they can receive vital updates on legislative matters from the Texas Open Carry Working Group which is going to be a permanent and effective pro-gun force in Texas to be reckoned with this year and in the future!

Please act on this message today.

If you blog please copy and re-publish the above message for your readers. Then post your link on the OpenCarry forum.
