Lt. Governor Patrick Makes Statement on Open Carry


AUSTIN – “Protecting our Second Amendment Right has always been a priority of the Senate. This week, I’m proud to announce the Senate passed the ‘open carry’ bill and it is now headed to Governor Abbott’s desk for his signature.

“This bill will allow for anyone with a license to carry a handgun openly, in Texas.

“I want to thank the senators for their bi-partisan work on making sure our Second Amendment Rights are never infringed upon. Congratulations to the senators for making Texans’ priorities their own.”
