    Texas to Enact at Least 9 Pro-Gun Laws in Wake of El Paso's Mass Shooting

    The laws were approved earlier this year, during the 86th Texas Legislature, and should go into effect on Sept. 1, 2019.
    One of the laws, HB 1387, gets rid of a limit on the number of schoolteachers and staff that can carry guns on public school campuses. These designated staff are known as school marshals.
    Supporters of the proposal said it would allow smaller school districts to participate in the school’s state marshal program, The Texas Tribune reported, explaining that originally schools could only designate one marshal per 200 students or per building. The law would would give schools the ability to decide how many marshals they want.


    Another one of the Texas measures, HB 1143, prevents school districts from making rules about how a licensed person’s handgun, firearm or ammunition is stored in their vehicle in a school parking area.
    A third regulation, HB 2363, allows foster parents to store firearms and ammunition in the same locked location.
    A fourth law, HB 302, bans residential lease agreements from restricting the ability of residents or guests to own guns. The NRA said in a statement that this would “protect tenants’ rights” to possess firearms and ammunition and transport them “directly between” their “personal vehicles and these locations.”
    A fifth measure, SB 535, makes it easier to carry guns in “churches, synagogues, or other places of worship” by striking them from a list of prohibited locations in the penal code where firearms are banned.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    If I lived in Texas, and was eligible to become trained/licensed as a school Marshall, I'd be willing to volunteer some of my time at a local school. Its no different than parents volunteering at PTA, chaperone on field trips or help kids cross the street safely....and should be normalized as such.
