THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION FOR EVERY RED-BLOODED PATRIOT!!!
On Tuesday, January 10, the 85th Legislative session officially began. Without opposition, RINO anti-2nd Amendment Rep Joe Straus was elected to serve another term as Speaker. It is incredibly telling that 100% of Democrats ALSO cast their votes for him. This is not good news for us. As Speaker, Straus will again have the authority to assign chairmanships to every House committee, including the Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee which Constitutional Carry will be assigned to. The Chairman has the authority to kill it like Straus-appointee, Rep Larry Phillips (R-62), did last session or put it to the floor for a vote.
On Monday, the 9th, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said, "I don’t know if the votes are there" for Constitutional Carry. He said the exact same thing before the 84th Session in 2015 regarding Open Carry, but it passed both chambers with about 2/3 support. This is why we need your help. This is an uphill battle for our 2nd Amendment rights, even with the dominant 2/3 supermajority of Republicans in both the House and Senate. We at Lone Star Gun Rights will stay true to our mission in reminding Lt. Gov. Patrick and Speaker Straus that the Texas GOP Platform lists Constitutional Carry as Legislative Priority Number 1!!! We should not have to seek permission from the State of Texas, pay a tax every 5 years, and obtain a permission slip to exercise our God-given right to keep AND BEAR arms!

Only together will we make the 2nd Amendment "shall not be infringed" again!
