Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted:
Congratulations to the people of Texas for becoming a Constitutional Carry state!
Americans should not be forced to ask government for permission to exercise Second Amendment rights.
We need to get this done in Georgia!
Per Texas Tribune:
Texans can carry handguns without a license or training starting Sept. 1, after Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday signed the permitless carry bill into law.
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. The signing was reported by the Texas Legislature’s official website, which tracks the progress of legislation. Abbott’s office has announced a ceremonial signing of the bill and other gun-related legislation at 11 a.m. Thursday.
