CONROE, TX – They were locked and loaded up in Conroe! Gun rights supporters from around town joined “Texas Leaders Coalition for Gun Rights” for their “Walk for Freedom.” Supporters openly carried AR-15’s, hunting rifles, and other long barreled guns, which is their legal right to do so.
While we in Texas love us some guns, openly carrying a handgun is a no – no, something those here plan to change in the 2015 session.
While they definitely appreciate the conceal and carry rights in the State of Texas, they want the government to butt out.
Both frontrunners for Texas Governor publicly support open carry, so change might be coming on where you can wear a firearm in Texas.
