Constitutional carry legislation could soon come to the floor of the Texas Senate, according to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, even as some Republican senators are hesitant to support the proposal.
“We’re gonna come out with a strong bill, and I believe we’ll pass it,” Patrick said on Thursday at the same time the newly formed Senate Committee on Constitutional Issues was hearing testimony on the proposal.
That bill passed on a 5-2 vote on Thursday evening after hours of testimony.
Patrick made the comments during an interview with Dana Loesch on Thursday in reference to House Bill 1927, a priority of the Republican Party of Texas that would remove the requirement of individuals to hold a gun permit from the state.
