The vast majority of unenforceable signs were removed by Sept. 1st. Based on informal reports, they number in the hundreds. No fines have been imposed yet as this must be done after a trial.

I hereby dub SB 273 to be the "Fines for $igns" law. :txflag:

It just flows, doesn't it?

Actually what got me thinking about this is that this law may be doing more to expand 2A carry in Texas than the OC law. Each government entity has had to scurry around and make sure they are not violating any citizen's carry rights, and in the process I think that has opened up the "carry space." Since they had to review their firearms policy anyway, it prompted a few at least to re-think it.

Some agencies, like the HHSC and the Texas Military Department (State Guard, Army Guard, Air Guard) have not only made sure they are complying with the law when people visit their facilities, but extended licensed carry to their employees as well. Maybe the Comptroller too, soon.

Happy New Year.
Oh I like that! I wish I had thought of it.
