FORT WORTH, TX (September 21, 2022) – Last night, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw appealed FPC’s victory in our Andrews v. McCraw lawsuit, which correctly held that Texas’ ban on handgun carry by young adults is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment. Case documents are available at FPCLegal.org.
“Texas Public Safety Director McCraw is welcome to appeal to a higher power, as is his right,” said Bill Sack, FPC Director of Legal Operations. “But we fully expect that he will be equally disappointed when the Fifth Circuit properly applies the Bruen standard, just as the District Court has done, and strikes down Texas’ ban.”
