She is out anyway... term limits.

I sure would be canceling my membership with Oklahoma Rifle Association though... they did not support the bill.
Okies need to put a true conservative in office when she leaves.
I believe an article from Fox stated that conservative governor candidates also urged her to pass the bill. I guess their pleas fell on deaf ears.

She signed HB 2177 which allows the 10 commandments on public property (which most likely will be ruled unconstitutional) and vetoed a Constitutional Carry bill. Go figure. I guess we need to know where our Governor will be ahead of time if it ever comes up in Texas. No reason to pass a law that will be vetoed unless it is just to see how people vote.

Greg Abbott would never veto a pro-gun bill, including unlicensed-carry.

Passing concealed carry only to have 'Ma Richards' veto it was a major factor in her defeat during the next election and I suspect it helped grow the political capital for TSRA.

If I have a Texas LTC this doesn't affect me one way or the other, right?
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Yes in a subtle way. The more states that pass such legislation shows the other states that blood will not run in the streets if our 2A rights are less infringed.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

An Oklahoma senator is attempting to repass constitutional carry along with other bills vetoed by the governor.
Another bill Dahm wants to be repassed is one of the more hotly debated bills from the most recent session, Senate Bill 1212. The constitutional carry bill that would allow any Oklahoman over the age of 21 without a felony conviction to carry a gun without a license.

"All things that she campaigned on, said she would be supportive of, but then her actions prove otherwise. And these would all be things that the majority of the legislature has supported in the past, that the majority of the people of Oklahoma seems like they would support, so this would give us an opportunity to correct some of those errors," said Dahm.

According to Senator Dahm, there is no deadline to gather the signatures so if 32 senators and 68 representatives sign off another special session will be scheduled.
Looks like this is the last chance to save the bill.
