If you'll take notice, It's only the Liberal ran cities police chief's and officer's that mainly oppose Constitutional Carry. Along with all the people that make a killing robbing people with the Concealed Carry License BS.
The Concealed Carry companies were all crying in Austin, fearing they would be put out of business if Constitutional Carry got passed.
I have always carried, but also refused to ever pay a Tax for a permit for something that is a guaranteed Right given to me by the Constitution Of The United States.

It should be legal for anyone to be armed at all times, in any state if they are legal to possess a firearm. No Permit Required!

Strange, to oppose exercise of rights without a permissions slip.

Fact is, at the federal level it's still a felony for a convicted felon to have possession of arms anyway. No permissions slip changes that. Upon checking a person, if it's determined he/she is a felon in possession, that person's charged anyway. Ditching permissions slips for everybody else doesn't change that. So, shouldn't be a problem.

Hopefully this all gets signed into law and put to rest.

And, hopefully, at some point, the state (all states) will put an amendment in their state constitutions that flatly decree that the RKBA is a right and shall not be impeded in the least way by anybody, in any way shape or form, ideally with some very stiff "teeth" for abuse (by the state) of that right ... or some legalese to that effect. (I doubt that'll happen in my lifetime. But it's necessary to keep the vampires' bloody jaws off the thing.)

Kudos to TX citizens. A ray of sunshine.

Yep, police chiefs often oppose carry of firearms by regular folks. The governor of Oklahoma ran out the clock after the legislature passed Constitutional carry.

The reason: The head of the OSBI, "Backdraft Bob" Ricks, who burned out the Branch Davidians; was opposed to Constitutional carry.

The new governor quickly signed off on Constitutional carry.

From what I can tell living here in Texas, most of the county sheriffs are in favor of this. Only large liberal bastions like Austin for example have LE come out opposed. Acevedo, the one time Houston chief is about as liberal as he can get...I feel sorry for those folks in Florida who are stuck with him now.
The bottom line, Gov Abbott already said he would sign it into law if they got it to his desk...that is good!

Ridiculous. The Miami Mayor should tell that guy to stop talking out of school.
It's a Texas issue.
I think i have said it in other threads, but i see a rising trend of States rights issues being put forward. I think some states see the writing on the wall and are moving both in their legislation and fiscal sustainability to divest reliance on the Federal government. And this is good.

Acevado was the Chief in Houston whose officer(s) falsified the address of a house, raided it and got into a shootout killing the occupants.

Ol' Art left Houston for greener pastures in Miami.

Why Is Art Acevedo Leaving Houston? – Texas Monthly

Many in Houston were left scratching their heads Monday when police chief Art Acevedo announced he was leaving his post to run the Miami Police Department. For starters, the Miami PD is much smaller than Houston’s—with about 1,400 officers to the 5,400 Acevedo currently oversees. The move seemed more appropriate for someone contemplating retirement rather than a high-profile political career, which the media-savvy Acevedo has clearly coveted since arriving in Houston from Austin in 2016.

While the Miami move initially seemed bizarre, it is perfectly in line with Acevedo’s personality. He is a showman, first and foremost: “He loves the camera more than Sheila Jackson Lee,” cracked one statewide political leader, comparing the chief to the Houston congresswoman known for her passion for the media. Acevedo is also a cold-eyed pragmatist when it comes to his opportunities. Those, it seemed, had run their course here.

Houston insiders knew that the 56-year-old Acevedo had been considering a mayoral run once Sylvester Turner reached his term limit in 2024. But as Acevedo started prospecting for supporters, the response wasn’t good. Despite public grandstanding after George Floyd’s death—posing for photo ops with local protesters, changing his Twitter profile image to one of Floyd, granting countless TV interviews—his support in the Black community was thin, owing at least partly to ongoing animosity toward the HPD’s record on policing minority communities. Houston politicos also told me that the Mexican American community was lukewarm at best on the Cuban American police chief.

Whenever a law is passed that is against liberal logic, the state run media (MSM) rushes to find the most liberal person or authority to ***** about it.
I personally have never met a LEO who wasn't for law abiding citizens carrying firearms.
But then again I don not live in a liberal community, liberal state or an area where socialism is the law of the land.
Before the left starts their campaign against Texas, we should remind them that liberal cities with the most extreme gun laws also have the most violence.
But I am sure they already know, just doing their best to blame it on neighboring states.

What we that have traveled a lot don't realize is that not everyone is like where ever you live. There are few states I haven't been in and people are different in different parts of the country....duh. Even NY is very different than the city cesspool that Deblasio has created. There are good places to live and dumpsters posing as states to live in. Those people apparently either don't vote, cheat, or both in elections. I used to not like my town in the SE but it's getting more likeable.

I know. I lived in Illinois for most of my life. "Guns are bad" was the only message I ever heard. My town had an ordinance prohibiting firing a gun....period.
My wife and I had to go to a local range, show our FOID's and spend $15 an hour to shoot. Of course to get there the guns had to be unloaded and locked in a non-passenger area.
The media, the politicians were all anti-gun there. They claimed that the police did not ever want citizens armed.
But while doing construction work I happened to work at the summer home of the Lake County Sheriff. Very nice guy.
During conversations I would bring up guns and he would say that the police are 100% in favor of law abiding citizens having firearms.
He said the police can't be everywhere.
Anyway I am now in Missouri where guns on the hip are as common as pickup trucks and work boots.
In the 15 years I have been here we have gone from no concealed carry to CCW permits to constitutional carry.
In my mind THAT is the definition of progressive......not the BS that the left claims it is.

The "police" who are bought and paid for career politicians long-ago forgot their OATH to the state and federal Constitutions. They LOVE having all the power and ability to carry and access to "special" firearms like short barrel rifles and fully auto SMGs. They are among the biggest hypocrites.
Depending on the laws of the state you live in, You can also have "Special" firearms and accessories if you pay $200 for a tax stamp. I have 7 of them.

True that .
However a dr cant do anything to you you dont agree to let him or her try.

Cops so inclined can and will do whatever they please pretty much if you like it or not oe if its called for or not.
Agree. Part of the point if that oaths have become "ceremonial" if they always weren't anyway with some people. It's wrong but liars have been around......for how long? Depends on what you believe in.

Ky has had open carry with nothing since statehood . This chief is an idiot.

Acevedo didn't make it in Houston and got a job in Miami. He's a flaming liberal. What do police have to do with The Constitution anyway other than enforcing it and other laws made by other people.....not the police?

Houston is flaming liberal. Why even listen to the guy? San Antonio and Austin are liberal also and I've been hearing that Dallas Fort Worth if liberal too. I live NE of Dallas and all the Kalifornicators are moving in around me!
