No comments here about Heller Vs DC
In somewhat related online news, there's a petition to the Lege and the Guvner demanding a return of open carry for Texas Citizens. When I first looked at it a few days ago, there was just under 6K signatures, now it's nearly 15K! On the one hand, this would take away the uncertainty protection that concealed carry gives to everyone: the bad guys don't know who is packing, so they're more hesitant to attack any one person. (However, if they did decide to attack someone, they'd more likely use overwhelming force to negate the possibility of that one being able to fight back.) On the other, this is Texas, it's damned hot in the summer! Others have pointed out the drawback of concealed carry in the heat-- less clothing to conceal well, having to choose a lighter gun with less power so it can be easier concealed, having to go without which defeats the purpose of getting the CHL.
Personally, I think it would be funny if the bars, saloons, taverns, cantinas, pubs, icehouses, etc. had to put the signs back up that read "Please check your gunbelt at the door."
