HB 700: Time to Act

Obviously, not too many Texans read this forum but if you do:

This just hit my email from Alice Tripp, TSRA:
I testified in committee in support of HB 700, open carry. You bet we support it... but the committee chairman controls what bills come out of committee and that hasn't happened. NRA and TSRA have both named them in alerts. It's not dead yet but not likely as it has no Senate companion.

The only person in control is Chairman Joe Pickett. The Republican committee members include Rep. George Lavender, the bill author! It's pretty unheard of NOT to vote on a priority bill for one of your committee members. Joe Pickett is a Democrat from El Paso and not likely to get an opponent.
Write, Call or Fax...Rep. Pickett and ask for HB700 to be put up for a vote!!!

He is stalling all gun bills in Texas and there have been so many posts on his FaceBook account he has shutdown access. He canít shut down his phone! Please take a moment and call the number below to ask him to move HB 700 out of committee!
Rep. Pickett, Joe C.
Capitol Address:
Room 1W.05, Capitol
P.O. Box 2910
... Austin, TX 78768
512-463-0133 ask for Mary Ann.....I was told HB 700 may come up for a vote in a few weeks....keep up the pressure!!!
FAX: (512) 463-6504 Letís keep up the pressure.

Unless Pickett brings up HB 700 for a vote within the next few weeks it will die in committee...!!!

If you live in El Paso or any other locale in Rep. Pickettís district you can really be a game-changer because his job depends on your vote.
No Guns, no peace.
Know guns, know peace.
