Color the rest of the country shocked: Texas is one of the few states in the nation (six, to be exact) that hasn’t yet approved the open carry of handguns in some form. That all could change this legislative session, though, if Republicans in the legislature have their way.

The Texas legislature has a reputation for creating headlines, and HB 2918, authored by Dallas-area state Representative Jason Villalba (R-HD 114), might just be the “lege” scandal that we’ve all been waiting for.

Their website is full of scare stats: did you know that almost $2 billion of investor money is partially buried in three gun companies? That number is followed by statistics highlighting gunshot wounds,...

When a 72-year-old retired school teacher faces a 10 year felony sentence (a likely life sentence) for possession of an unloaded 18th century flintlock pistol, one knows immediately that we can only be talking about a handful of states in which such a travesty can happen.  In this case, not surprisingly,...
