Of course, there's a catch. The antis got their pound of flesh with the tack-on amendments to the TX Senate bill. Among them:
  • Possession by someone convicted of a specific crimes within the past 5 years is now a 3rd degree felony (upgraded from 2nd degree), which carries a minimum 5 year prison sentence. These crimes include "assault that causes bodily injury" and "disorderly conduct with a firearm".
  • Carrying while intoxicated is prohibited, with enhanced penalties
  • Designated areas, such as schools, polling places, and hospitals are now no-carry zones.


I think these are way overbroad, and I'm wondering if con carry is really worth these enhanced penalties. Sit down at a restaurant and have 1 too many drinks, and you get up to 5 years in the pen - even if the gun never leaves your holster? Slap your wife in the heat of an argument, and you forfeit a constitutional right to carry for 5 years? "Disorderly conduct with a firearm can mean just about anything a radical Dem mayor/DA wants it to mean - carrying holstered while picketing in a protest, brandishing a weapon to defuse a looming brawl, etc. I have mixed feelings about the legislation now...

The House can vote to remove (or alter) all or some of these Amendments. Yes it means back to the Senate but this is the sausage...
