WHEREAS, The Texas Constitution clearly states in Article 1 Section 23. RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have the power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.,
WHEREAS, research has proven that restricting and hindering the right to bear arms only encourages criminals and their actions in violent crimes against law-abiding citizens,
WHEREAS, Demanding law abiding citizens to request permission from their government body through a permit system to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms is an unmistakable violation of that right, and,
WHEREAS, this inalienable right unmistakably gives the right to carry a handgun for self-defense, and;
THEREFORE, I am urging you as our elected State Senator and State Representative, to publicly support, and/or co-sponsor and vote for the 2015 Texas Constitutional Carry bill HB 195.
