I just watched hours of debate in the Texas Senate on Committee Substitute HB 910.  The Senate Committee had removed the Dutton amendment, that stipulated that the police could not stop you for merely exercising your right to carry openly, and ask for a permit or license.

Robert A. Heinlein wrote that an armed society is a polite society.    Many in the gun culture echo this sentiment.   Every firearms trainer that I have met paraphrases it in some way.  Here is an example: Carrying a firearm is a tremendous responsibility.   The results of having to use the firearm will follow you the …
