Abbott at indoor gun range to sign open, campus carry bills

🕐 1 min read

PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (AP) — Gov. Greg Abbott stopped at a gun range to sign into law bills letting Texans carry concealed handguns on college campuses and openly carry them virtually everywhere else.

Abbott was at Red’s Indoor Range in Pflugerville on Saturday. He says the laws mean Texans can be sure their Second Amendment rights will be stronger and more secure than ever before.

The Republican made expanding gun rights a top priority of his first legislative session as governor.

Texas was one of the few states not already allowing licensed residents to wear handguns holstered, or otherwise in plain sight.

The “campus carry” bill passed despite staunch opposition from leaders of the state’s top universities — but includes a concession allowing schools to carve out “gun-free zones.”
