Parking lot bill passes Texas House!

The Texas House passed SB 321, the parking lot bill, yesterday.

Yesterday, the Texas House passed Senate Bill 321, NRA-backed employee protection/parking lot legislation sponsored by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) and state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington), by a 117-29 vote. SB 321, substituted in House Bill 681 on the House floor since it had already passed the Senate, would prevent employers from enacting and enforcing policies to prohibit employees from storing firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work.

Call your rep and thank him, if he voted for it. While you’re at it remind him to support that open carry bill.

    Just checked the Brady Metric. If Perry signs it into law, you’re down to 4!

    I do not know if it helped the vote, but I called my rep. yesterday (Callegari, from the un-incorporated area between Houston and Katy) and told the staffer that I supported this bill and would likely be moved to get involved in his campaign if he voted for the bill… Of course, this was at 3:30 in the afternoon, which is likely after the vote.
    Next will be my senator.

    When I first moved to Florida I was really excited that, by law, any employer could not prevent me from keeping a gun in my glove compartment. Then I got a job. Turns out my boss is a gunnie who asks that I *please* carry on a daily basis. I do not miss Boston!!!!!
