New Laws in Texas just dropped 🙃 (cw: guns/violence)

"Texans over the age of 21 will now be able to carry a handgun without a license in Texas.

Referred to as “constitutional carry,” this law removes the requirement of obtaining a state-issued license (and the training and background check that is part of that process) in order to carry a handgun in public.

Texans may carry pistols openly or concealed, as long as they are not prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Long guns, including shotguns and rifles, do not require a license to carry in public in Texas."

Part of me wants to watch the mass shootings and other gun crimes skyrocket because the fuck else do you think is going to goddamn happen? This sure as fuck isn't gonna lower them. But I know damn well that those gun crimes are going to be toward minority groups and will feed abusive situations. And its going to be sad. A fucked state to live in rn.

Its going to be even more cringe when I see a goddamn gun in public now. Thanks for that.

Like, the only okay things to have changed lately is that cops have to wear bodycams at all times during investigation, a slightly upped dose tolerance for marijuana (1% up from .5%) and I guess we can buy beer and wine on sundays now. :I

On the other hand, we have open carry without a license, more restrictive abortion laws, schools cant teach critical race theory, and all professional sporting events are required by law to play the national anthem before every game :)))))

This states government is so goddamn ass-backwards. It hurts to live here.
