BREAKING: Texas Passes Licensed Open Carry

From the TSRA:

HB 910 by Rep. Larry Phillips (R-Sherman) was taken up in the House today to clean up differences between the House and Senate versions.  This happened around 5:00 pm and it passed!

Half an hour later in the Senate, Sen. Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) was recognized by Lt. Governor Patrick to take up the conference committee report, same reason, to clean up differences between the Senate and House versions.  Sen. Rodney Ellis seemed a bit surprised!  You see he had threatened to filibuster the bill  and talk it dead.  That did not happen and minutes later, HB 910 by Phillips and Estes, is finally passed and headed for Abbott’s desk!
