Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Derek Wills from Lone Star Gun Rights joined the show to discuss the topic of constitutional carry and Texas HB-375, the "Texas Constitutional Carry Act of 2017", which was introduced to the 85th Texas Legislature by State Rep. Jonathan Stickland.

HB-375 would allow all Texans the right to carry a firearm openly or concealed with or without a permit, with the licensing process and classes to obtain a permit becoming optional.

When asked by Hasty if there is any momentum in Austin for the act, Wills replied,

There is. Last session we didn't get we didn't get a hearing at all for constitutional carry. It was filed, but the focus was more on licensed open carry. This session we've already been assured...HB-375 will get a hearing this session.
