Texas removes licensing requirement for concealed firearms in public

• The BL

House Bill 1927, also known as the constitutional carry law, lets Texans quietly bear arms on public property without requiring a license.

The legislation, which Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed into law on June 16, makes the Lone Star State the 21st jurisdiction since the mid-1990s to let residents carry concealed guns without a permit. Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Montana, New Hampshire, and North Dakota have also enacted similar legislation.
