TX: Irresponsible gun rights bill is a menace to public safety

I struggle with this loss every day, as does my entire family. One way that I have dealt with that struggle is by volunteering with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, an organization that supports Second Amendment rights while also fighting for laws that can effectively reduce the gun violence that affects so many Americans, me and my family included. Right now this organization with the support of law enforcement leaders from across the state is battling to block a dangerous gun bill, HB 1911, which would eliminate the licensing requirements, including criminal background checks and safety training, for Texans who choose to carry a loaded handgun in public.

So there are 22 iresponsible states?...if it such a bad idea, why is the crime rates declining in those states?

As a resident of Texas, and a concealed handguns license holder, I find this lady's efforts misguided. Whoever shot her father was most likely not a responsible gun owner. Yet he had a gun and almost certainly violated numerous laws that failed to prevent this shooting.

These anti-gun Moms need to understand that criminals and miscreants already carry guns in violation of the law. It will still be illegal under constitutional carry for prohibited persons to carry a gun. Laws only place restrictions on honest law abiding citizens. They don't do anything to restrict the activities of criminals.

These Moms should get behind something that would do some good like tougher sentences for criminals convicted of gun crimes.
