Tell the Senate to Fix the Constitutional Carry Bill NOW
As you may have heard, the Texas Senate voted 18-13 last week on the Constitutional Carry bill, HB 1927.
Unfortunately, the Senate, led by Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, created some major problems.
Whenever the Senate adds any amendments to a bill already passed by the House, that bill has to go back to the House. The House can concur with the amendments and send the bill to the Governor’s desk. Or it can call for a conference committee to work out the differences, then send the final version back to the House and Senate for another full vote.
However, the Senate created a worse problem.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was told ahead of time that at least one of the Senate amendments if adopted, would violate House rules. This would allow the anti-gunners to kill Constitutional Carry in the House on a technical violation — before the House could even decide to concur or go to a conference committee.
Despite knowing this, the Lt. Governor still pushed through his packet of amendments and refused to listen to multiple warnings.
The Senate can still fix this problem — but only if it acts quickly.
Please call Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and your State Senator immediately. Tell them to work with the House to fix HB 1927 and send a strong Constitutional Carry bill to the Governor’s desk.
