Dear Texas Senate District 25 NRA Member:
The Texas Legislature passed groundbreaking legislation to restore and protect your Second Amendment rights in the Lone Star State during its 2021 Regular Session. As NRA-ILA reported to you last week, a dozen new pro-Second Amendment bills took effect on September 1.
Your State Senator, Donna Campbell, authored and passed Senate Bill 20, which protects the ability of hotel guests to store lawfully-possessed firearms and ammunition in their rooms, and to transport them directly en route between their vehicles and their rooms. Hotels frequently fail to include information on their websites, or in reservation notices, to inform guests about restrictive firearms policies. This forces gun owners, upon arrival, to consider leaving their firearms in their cars or trucks and make them susceptible to theft, in order to comply with policies they knew nothing of in advance.
Additionally, Senator Campbell co-sponsored and voted for House Bill 1927, NRA-backed constitutional carry legislation, this session. HB 1927 allows law-abiding adults, age 21 or older, to carry a handgun concealed or unconcealed for personal protection without paying a fee and obtaining a license from the state. Texas’ existing License To Carry law remains on the books so that residents and non-residents may continue to obtain LTCs for purposes of reciprocity and NICS-exemptions when purchasing a firearm.
Please take a moment to thank Senator Campbell for her hard work on, and support for, these landmark pro-Second Amendment measures in the Texas Legislature.
