State Senate OKs Unlicensed Handgun Carry


A bill to allow the unlicensed carry of handguns in Texas is on its way back to the House after its party-line passage in the Senate on Wednesday.

In nearly seven-hours of debate, some GOP amendments to the bill were adopted in order to win the support of several reluctant Republicans.

GOP Senator Charles Schwertner of Georgetown says businesses can still pass rules to keep open-carry off their premises. All 18 Senate Republicans voted in favor of the bill, and all 13 Democrats opposed it.
