In Texas it is legal to walk down the street publicly exhibiting rifles, but is not warranted show handguns.

The Texas Senate approved on Wednesday preliminarily a bill allowing concealed carry weapons in public universities, a day after it was authorized public carrying of handguns in the state.

The bill was approved even though it has been criticized by police, students and officials from major universities in Texas.

The project was sanctioned by a majority of 20 Republican senators against the opposition of 11 Democrats, after a debate four hours Wednesday.

“A fundamental right granted by the Creator is not subject to financial costs or speculation of our public universities,” said Sen. Brian Birdwell, principal sponsor of the initiative, invoking religious principles.

This is the third proposal for the carrying of arms that is approved by the Senate this week in Texas.

In Texas it is legal to walk down the street publicly exhibiting rifles, but is not warranted show handguns.

“The Texas Senate sends a clear message that our right under the Second Amendment (of the Constitution) remains strong,” said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said in a statement Wednesday, defending the right to carry weapons.

The bill requires a final vote, which could be this Thursday, then send it to the House.

On Monday a bill that would allow people to carry and publicly display handguns, hanging from the waist or shoulders, if they have a license was approved.

The standard was adopted after the Republican majority knocked nearly 20 amendments which sought to restrict the legislation.

To date, Texas is legal to walk down the street and publicly displaying rifles AR-15 and AK-47, but is not warranted show handguns.
