Texas Governor signs Constitutional carry into law

June 17, 2021

We can now add Texas to the list of States which allow Constitutional carry after Governor Abbott signed it into law yesterday. Here is more:

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed HB 1927 into law Wednesday, making Texas the 21st constitutional carry state in the union.

The Texas Tribune reported the constitutional carry law will go into effect September 1, 2021, allowing law-abiding residents 21-years-old and older to carry a handgun for self-defense, without first getting a permit from the government.

This makes Texas the 21st constitutional carry state. The other 20 states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

If you are like me you were probably surprised to learn that Texas was not one of the original Constitutional carry States but at least they finally rectified that problem. The list now stands at 21 States and hopefully this number is going to continue to grow in the next few months because the Biden administration is going to make a big gun control push in the coming years.
