With 21 million guns sold in 2020 (over 8 million first time buyers) and a democrat-controlled federal government, gun legislation will become a significant topic in 2021.
Last week, we talked about a move by Texas to become a 2nd Amendment sanctuary state, and now let's talk about some of the other potential legislation.
Constitutional Carry, the ability of someone's ability to carry a handgun without a permit, is again proposed in several states. Sixteen states currently have Constitutional Carry.
In Texas, Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg) introduced HB 1238 which will allow anyone eligible to possess a handgun to also carry it concealed. Senator Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) introduced SJR 24, which proposes an amendment to the Texas Constitution that prohibits the state from requiring a citizen "to obtain a license or permit to wear arms."
Utah, Montana, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Alabama and Georgia have also had bills introduced proposing Constitutional Carry.
Other firearm-related bills introduced into the Texas legislature include:
HB 1379 - Raises the cap on establishments where carrying a firearm is prohibited based on alcohol sales of 51% to 60 percent.
HB 514 - Eliminates schools from the list of gun-free zones in Texas code.
HB 918 - Allows 18-21 year olds who are protected under court orders to apply for a License to Carry.
HB 1094 - Expands on HB 918 and allows those individuals to carry without a permit.
