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.
