Second Amendment Advocates Support Texas Constitutional Carry


As Texas is considering legislation for open carrying handguns, groups are advocating "Constitutional Carry."

Justin Delosh, executive director for Come and Take It Texas, said that the government shouldn't be making money off of gun permits.

"We support the right to concealed carry and the right to open carry.  We think it's unethical for the state to profit off a person's ability to defend themselves.  So we're pushing for both without a permit," Delosh said.

"Constitutional Carry means that if you're legally allowed to possess the firearm, you should be able to carry it openly or concealed without a permit," Delosh said.

Since the right to bear arms is part of our Constitution, requiring citizens to need a permit or have state-mandated training is unethical.

"We're all for more training, we'd love to see everybody get more training.  But to make it state-mandated, to me it's just unethical," Delosh said.

Kory Watkins, Coordinator Open Carry Tarrant County told Joshua Cook that James White's open carry bill is not one to support because if the 2nd Amendment is a right, the state shouldn't force citizens to pay for a license, or a concealed carry permit.

"There is a different bill that gun supporters are supporting," said Watkins. "HB 195 by Jonathan Stickland is Constitutional carry. That's what the open carry groups are supporting."
