AUSTIN --The Texas Senate today passed SB 17, the open carry gun bill. The vote on Senator Craig Estes's bill was 20 - 10.

SB 17 proposes the following:

· Relating to the authority of a person who is licensed to carry a handgun to openly carry a holstered handgun; creating a criminal offense; providing penalties.

"In the history of the Texas Senate, this is the first time an open carry bill has made it out of committee and onto the Senate floor. I am very proud of the fact that today, we made Texas history," said Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick.

"We've worked tirelessly on the issues that are most important to Texans. I applaud the good work our senators have put forth on making sure our Second Amendment Rights are protected, never ignored and properly enforced.

"The passage of (SB 17 - Estes) demonstrates that the Texas Senate is focusing on our citizens' priorities and our right to freedom," Patrick said.
