Behind the Poll

Thanks to a new “constitutional carry” law signed by Gov. Greg Abbott in June 2021, Texans will be allowed to carry handguns without a permit starting September 1st, 2021.

The Texas Tribune reports: “House Bill 1927 eliminates the requirement for Texas residents to obtain a license to carry handguns if they’re not prohibited by state or federal law from possessing a gun.”

Any kind of required license to carry a gun is viewed by conservatives as an infringement on the right to bear arms. Many pro-2A people would love to pass a national constitutional carry law.
