\r\nPLEASE CALL SPEAKER DADE PHELAN! 512-463-1000\r\nPLEASE CALL LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR DAN PATRICK! (512) 463-0001\r\nDear 2A Supporters,\r\nAs we mentioned last week, Constitutional Carry bill (HB 1927) cleared a major hurdle on May 5, 2021 after the Texas Senate approved it on an 18 to 13 vote.\r\n\r\nBut now, there are some catches with the passage of this bill because of the amendments that were added to satisfy several Republican Senators who were lukewarm on Constitutional Carry. Pressure from big city law enforcement lobbies undoubtedly shaped the way some senators behaved as they tacked on amendments to the bill.\r\nAt the end of the day, Phelan and Patrick will need to face pressure from you for them to do the right thing and pass Constitutional Carry without any procedural shenanigans or excuses. The legislative session is coming to a close at the month\u2019s end, so the time to act is now!\r\nPlease, make haste, and call Speaker Phelan and Lt. Gov. Patrick at the numbers below:\r\n\r\nSpeaker Dade Phelan: (512) 463-1000\r\nLieutenant Governor Dan Patrick: (512) 463-0001\r\nDo not be fooled by what the experts say, legislative leadership can get HB 1927 to Governor Abbott\u2019s desk. It\u2019s a matter of political will, which you must remind them of.\r\nThe latest votes on Constitutional Carry represent the biggest Second Amendment victory in recent memory for Texas after a decade\u2019s worth of activism to put Constitutional Carry over the top.\r\nOver the course of the last decade, legislative sessions ended in routine disappointment. Nonetheless, it appears that all this work panned out now that Constitutional Carry has been passed in both chambers of the Texas State legislature.\r\nAgain, please make sure to call Speaker Phelan and Lt. Gov. Patrick and urge him to pass Constitutional Carry without ANY DELAYS.\r\nSpeaker Dade Phelan: (512) 463-1000\r\nLieutenant Governor Dan Patrick: (512) 463-0001\r\n\r\nBecome an LSGR Member!
