Texas: House Passes Two NRA-Backed Bills This Week
Updated: Feb 21
This week, the Texas House passed two pro-Second Amendment measures to further protect your rights in the Lone Star State.
House Bill 121
NRA-supported legislation by Rep. Valoree Swanson (R-Spring), provides a legal defense for License To Carry holders who unknowingly enter establishments with 30.06 or 30.07 signs, as long they promptly leave when verbally informed of the policy. HB 121 passed on third reading by a 119-25 vote.
House Bill 302
An NRA-backed measure by Rep. Dennis Paul (R-Houston), protects the rights of tenants to possess lawfully-owned firearms and ammunition in residential units, and to transport them directly en route between their personal vehicles and their apartments or condominiums. Provisions relating to commercial tenants and leases were removed from the bill, but protections for tenants on manufactured home lots were added, so that it now mirrors the Senate version. HB 302 passed on third reading by a 101-44 vote.
