...and some of the best proof of that are gun friendly laws that were passed during the 2021 legislature. Take for instance House Bill 1927 which allows for license free carry of a handgun by law abiding citizens over the age of 21 or House Bill 1500 that "...establishes that firearm and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers and retailers are essential businesses that shall not be prohibited by state or local officials from operating during a declared disaster or emergency". Several more new gun friendly laws, in Texas, can be seen at the source: https://www.nraila.org/articles/20210601/texas-legislature-adjourns-after-groundbreaking-session-for-gun-owners
Dang, the politics here are much more to my liking than those in Cuomoistan! This may not be the most gun friendly state but as I indicated it sure ain't NY!
Edited To Add: House Bill 1927 was signed into law today by Texas Governor Abbott; it goes into effect September 1, 2021! (Source.)
All the best,
