The current Texas law requires residents that want to carry a handgun to obtain a permit by taking a training course, a shooting course, a written exam and an application fee that could be up to $40.

Recently a bill was passed to allow Texans to carry handguns in public with out taking classes or getting a permit. Of course you will have to be 21 or older to carry a handgun. Either concealed or openly in a holster. The law also allows business owners to verbally tell customers if guns are allowed in their business. Not just placing a “no guns allowed” sign.

In the meantime, the Democratic party have been focusing on gun safety laws in a epic effort to crack down on gun violence that seems to be plaguing America since a sting of mass shootings. In cities like Atlanta and Boulder, Colorado.

Although, police officials have expressed their concerns of the new “carry without a permit” bill. Law makers seem to have lessened their worries by adding provisions. One of the many provisions could have banned officers from questioning a person based only on the fact they are carrying a handgun.
