Hope y'all allow this Georgian who spent a fair share of time in Texas and married one to intrude. I'm following one of the founders of Open Carry Texas on Facebook who had an interview with Greg Abbott and here's what he had to say. Greg Abbot isn't afraid to say he supports open carry

Further on in our conversation about guns, General Abbott also brought up why we are having the gun control debate in the first place and that is because of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. The mood in the room became somber as he spoke about how no parent should even have to consider the horrifying thought of not being able to pick up their child because they were gun downed at school. However, he did go on to say that, “Whenever we are trying to address a tragedy it should be addressed in a way that will solve it. We are talking about guns, but the debate about what the possible solutions are, aren’t really addressing the problem which is violence in our society.”

I saved the last question of the interview to ask General Abbott if he supported open carry. I wanted to get a clear answer, so I just asked for a “Yes” or “No” answer and he responded with a, “Yes.” He later added that he felt an open carry law would have similar success as the Concealed Handgun License Laws have had in Texas

It's good to see open political support for our rights.

I'm glad to hear of a high-profile politician supporting open carry in Texas. The more I read about Abbott (which hasn't been a lot, honestly), the more I like the idea of him taking the reins from Perry.

I like Abbott a lot, so far.

He has my vote

I'd vote for him not just on his stance on gun rights but also his overall views of the role of government. Plus he likes to fuck with the EPA as much as possible so

Jerry Patterson (running for Lt. Governor) was interviewed on the Sam Malone show this morning (AM 1070 in Houston). Jerry said he's in favor of open carry in Texas (he was instrumental in the passage of our first CHL law (SB 60) back in 1995).

Abbott has my vote as it currently stands. From what I know about him, he'd have to really screw up to lose that vote.

Jerry Patterson is a true believer. He was sponsoring gun rights legislation before it was cool. Having him as Lt. Governor would be huge for Texas RKBA.

Has anyone asked him about constitutional carry?

Same.

Indeed, I like this idea of "address the violence". There's multitudes of reason for the violence...economic disparity, the multitudes of soft targets, simple ethnic culture/values...

Damn near anybody would be better than Wendy Lou....

Glad to see Abbott on our side regarding 2nd amendment rights. Gun rights being my primary voting criteria...I'll be sending him some campaign dough.
