Texas Legislature special session

Gov. Perry will be calling a special session of the Legislature. It is possible that he might add the guns in parking lot bill to that session.

The Texas State Rifle Association is urging members to call. I'll post a part of the TSRA email I received here:

The Governor will call a special session of the Legislature in the coming weeks to address state agency re-authorization bills that also failed to pass during the regular session. While the Governor has ultimate control over what is considered during any special session, it's unlikely that any issue will be placed on the agenda which doesn't have the support of both Senate and House leaders. We already know where the Governor and Senate leaders stand on this issue.

That's why its critical that you contact House Speaker Joe Straus at (512) 463-1000 and ask him where he stands on this issue: with corporate honchos, or with hard-working Texas gun owners and sportsmen who are prohibited from protecting themselves during their commutes to and from work every day?

It might also be a good idea to call the Governors office as well. Ask him to put this bill on the special session. You can call Citizen's Opinion Hot line [for Texas callers] :
(800) 252-9600

I believe option 2 when you call will put you in que to speak to a real person.

Please pass this on to all.
