Texas Senate passes 2nd Amendment Carry -- now back to the House

Just The NewsThe Texas Senate has approve a bill that would allow people in the state to carry handguns without a license, which if enacted would make the state the largest the country to have a so-called permit-less carry law.

The legislation passed the GOP-controlled chamberWednesday in an 18-13 vote, along party lines, according to The Hill. The bill now heads to the Republican-majority House. Should it pass the House, it will go to GOP Gov. Greg Abbott.

The bill will allow adults 21 and older to carry a handgun in public, so long as it is in its holster.

It's going back to the House because both sides have passed slightly different legislation, but similar 2nd Amendment Carry legislation did pass the House recently. I would expect the House to pass this, and the governor to sign it.
