Over Taxed, TX

First, let me offer my most heart felt dittos to Granny! We should all rejoice in our shared natural right to self protection and remain ever vigilant against any encroachment thereon by government. Amen.

Having said that, my problem with the Texas concealed carry permit law is that it "requires" training, for which a rather handsome fee is charged and, therefore, is discriminatory and prohibitive in effect, unequally applied and rather patronizing and presumptive on it‘s face. My reasoning is not unlike the reasoning that was used to strike down the poll taxes. Voting is a constitutional right as is the right to bear arms and neither may be infringed upon. ….or so it would appear to any reasonable interpretation.

Barring a mental disorder or criminal record, and a minimum of requirements to ascertain such information, I see no compelling reason for the State to impose a tax on one's Constitutional right derived from God, (not Governor Perry or the Legislature), to self protection….(234 years of contorted, twisted and manipulated case law decided by black robed soothsayers aside, of course).

The training should be encouraged but voluntary if they are going to charge a fee for it. The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege, it is a right. The State of Taxus considers it, apparently, a privilege upon which it can place any kind of restriction or impediment it so chooses.

If they did the same for voting, the ACLU would go nuts!
