Dozens of Pro- & Anti-Second Amendment Bills Pre-Filed for 86th Regular Session

The Texas Legislature convenes in Austin for its 86th Regular Session on Tuesday, January 8.  Pre-filing of legislation began in mid-November.  Since then, several pro-Second Amendment measures have already been introduced and received bill numbers, including but not limited to:

Senate Bill 117 by Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) clarifies the definition of “school-sponsored activity” in the Texas Penal Code to avoid the establishment of roving gun-free zones in buildings or areas that are not owned by or under the control of a school or postsecondary educational institution.

House Bill 302 by Rep. Dennis Paul (R-Houston) protects the rights of tenants to lawfully possess firearms in their residential or commercial rental properties and to transport their guns between their personal vehicles and those locations.

House Bill 357 by Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) allows individuals who are legally-eligible to possess a firearm to carry a handgun for personal protection without a state-issued license.

House Bill 516 by Rep. Drew Springer (R-Muenster) provides immunity to property or business owners who elect not to post their premises off-limits to License To Carry holders with 30.06 or 30.07 signs.
