With Joe Biden in control, Democrats are moving full-speed ahead to end the Second Amendment.
But states are fighting back.
And gun-grabbers are panicking after Texas made a pro-gun move that they thought would never happen.
Texas has a reputation for being a pro-gun state.
But contrary to popular belief, they are actually far behind many other states when it comes to gun rights.
Their concealed carry permit process is much more stringent than many other states, even some that are traditionally seen as more left-wing, and there is no ability to carry a handgun without a permit, like there currently is in 20 other states.
That all could change after the Texas House passed House Bill 1927, known as Constitutional Carry.
The Left, and establishment Republicans have blocked this bill from even getting a vote since the 2015 session of the legislature.
Constitutional Carry allows any citizen who is legally allowed to own a firearm to carry it without having to get a government permission slip to do so.
It has wide support from Texans, yet the legislature has always fought the bill, until this year.
The bill was filed by Rep. Matt Schaefer, who argues that the “bill should be called common-sense carry” as he argued in favor of it on April 15.
It passed by a 84-56 vote, with eight Democrats even voting for the bill.
Only one Republican, Rep. Morgan Meyer of Dallas, voted against it.
This doesn’t mean that the bill will be signed into law.
It still has to pass the Senate, which is controlled by Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, who has been a thorn in the side of gun rights supporters since he killed the bill in 2015.
In a 2017 interview, he made his opposition to it known, saying, “with all the police violence today we have in our state . . . law enforcement does not like the idea of anyone being able to walk down the street with a gun and they don’t know if they have a permit or not.”
But grassroots gun rights supporters are working hard to pass the bill.
Texas Gun Rights, a state affiliate of the National Association for Gun Rights has delivered over 120,000 petitions in support of the issue.

If the bill is signed into law, it will send a clear message to the gun-grabbers in Washington D.C. not to mess with Texas gun owners.
