Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Statement on Passage of Senate Bill 18


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following the passage of Senate Bill 18, the Protect Second Amendment Businesses Act, by Sen. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe:

“During emergencies or disasters, Texans should not have to worry about the infringement of their Second Amendment rights. When Second Amendment businesses are under threat, we know that Texans’ Second Amendment rights are also under threat. As long as I am Lt. Governor, that will not stand. I am grateful for Sen. Creighton and the Texas Senate for standing with me in defense of all Texans’ Second Amendment rights.”
