    I just saw this in the Houston Chronicle. I don't know much about law, but I assume Gov Perry ("Zoolander") has to sign this into law to make it official. It honestly never occured to me that even if you have your Concealed Carry License then you may not be able to leave it in a locked car at work.

    Newbie question - Also, how do you guys get avatars/pictures beside your names when you post?

    This is again a matter of contacting both your state representative and state senator and telling them that you expect them to approve the bill. Then contacting the governor once the bill is approved and telling him that you expect him to sign the bill.

    To add a avatar, go to the top of the Glock Talk page and click on "User CP."

    Then click on "Edit Options." Once that page loads, scroll to the bottom of the page and follow the directions in the left column for adding an avatar.

    From the NRA:

    Big Texas Corporations Opposing Meaningful Self-Defense Reforms!

    You have recently received legislative updates concerning three NRA-supported bills moving through the legislative process: House Bill 220, sponsored by State Representative Phil King (R-61), House Bill 992, sponsored by State Representative Patrick Rose (D-45) and Senate Bill 534 by State Senator Glenn Hegar (R-18). HB220 has moved out of the House Law Enforcement Committee, HB992 is currently in the House Urban Affairs Committee, and SB534 has left the Senate Criminal Justice Committee.

    All three bills would allow Concealed Handgun Licensees to transport and store handguns in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked on their employer’s property. HB992 and SB534 also provide employers with protection from civil liability for the unforeseeable acts of criminals.

    Unfortunately, some in the business community are opposing these bills. Please contact your State Representative and your State Senator and respectfully urge them to support HB220, HB992, and SB534. Contact information for your State Representative can be found at http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/welcome.php and contact information for your State Senator can be found at http://www.senate.state.tx.us/.
