This is a good thing. It should slow down places like Plano from saying where you can carry.

The changes made in the Texas House to SB 501, the stripping of
Senator
Ratliff's amendment, were concurred with today by the Texas Senate.
Senator Amrbrister made the motion to concur. There were no
objections. The motion to concur passed without objection.

SB 501 by Senator Armbrister (D-Victoria) reestablishes the Texas
Legislature as the only regulating authority concerning the rules for
where a CHL can or cannot carry. The legislative process is now
complete for SB 501 and this important legislation is on it's way to
Governor Perry for his signature. SB 501 gives consistency and
harmony
to the Texas Concealed Handgun Law (CHL).

Thank you for all your calls, letters, email, and faxes. It's your
success. Please thank your senator for the support given to SB 501.
The
Senate listened to you.

Saturday Addendum:

The Senate just passed HB 489 by Rep. Dan Ellis of Livingston
(Senator Todd
Staples, Senate sponsor). This is the bill that would allow folks to
carry a
handgun in their RV or travel trailer.

Also, at 10:45 AM, HB 1704 by Rep. Larry Taylor of Friendswood
(Senator Kyle
Janek, senate sponsor) passed in the Senate. This bill would allow
new
residents to Texas to apply for a Texas CHL under the non-resident
portion of
Concealed Handgun Law. HB 1704 will also stop the confiscation of
non-resident
CHL's by DPS when the non-resident TX Concealed Handgun licensee's
home state
passes concealed handgun law. It further states that the
non-resident can
maintain his TX CHL until such time as the home state and Texas
arrive at a
reciprocity agreement. HB 1704 also passed with an amendment put on
by Rep.
Robert Talton of Pasadena. This amendment more closely aligns CHL
law with
federal requirements for handgun ownership and possession.

I don't know much about this law. In Coppell, the city buildings have signs saying that you can't have a gun on the premises. Does SB 501 do away with that? If so, that's cool!
