Texas Senate Passes Permitless Carry Bill

The Texas senate has approved in a 18–13 vote a bill to allow Texans to carry handguns without a license.

House Bill 1927 would eliminate the requirement for Texas citizens to acquire a permit to carry handguns if they’re not prohibited by state or federal law from owning a firearm.

The measure, already passed by the Texas House last week, now heads to a conference committee for the two chambers to debate amendments and settle differences until the House and Senate versions are identical. The bill will then go to Governor Greg Abbott’s desk for his final signature.
