Texans should have the right to carry firearms in accordance with the Second Amendment of the US Constitution (i.e., “Constitutional Carry).
The Texas Legislature should propose to the people of Texas, a constitutional amendment to strike the following words from Article I Section 23 of the Texas Constitution: “…but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.” (TXGOP Plank #86)
Oppose any measure that would deprive someone of their right to possess firearms without being convicted of a crime or found mentally incompetent by a medical psychiatric professional, or that would cause gun owners to be investigated by law enforcement or appear before a judge when there is no reasonable cause of a crime committed. This includes state legislation such as red flag laws, social media monitoring that targets gun owners, expanded background checks, mandates on personal firearms storage, and government-mandated location restrictions such as those in K-12 schools and 51% establishments, and Federal law such as PTSD-related restrictions and the National Firearms Act.
