The headline, "Bill would let lawmakers carry guns everywhere" was in the Austin Statesman online version of its newspaper, statesman.com, on April 12 and 13. My state senator, Dan Patrick, thinks this is a good idea because of the high profile that lawmakers carry. Well, this is reasonable reasoning. However, isn't it also reasonable reasoning to assume, that sense the thugs and thieves carry weapons without regard to the law, law abiding Texans without a felony conviction should be able to carry a weapon just because they don't want to be a victim of someone's unlawfulness! And without having to go through the process of applying for a concealed handgun license! Self defense is an unalienable right and no license should be required to carry a personal concealed weapon!
