The Texas legislature and Governor Greg Abbott have approved and signed Texas HB1927 – The Firearm Carry Act of 2021 otherwise known as “constitutional carry.” Texas becomes the twenty-first state to pass constitutional carry.

Hermosa, CEO of U.S. LawShield. “Understanding the new law will be imperative for all handgun owners who want to carry without a permit. Education is the core of the U.S. LawShield mission and we are dedicated to providing our members and other fellow gun owners with the in-depth information they need to legally arm themselves.”
With its powerful network of independent program attorneys, U.S. LawShield is the go-to legal resource for gun owners nationwide and will provide in-depth legal explanations of what the law is and how it affects gun owners.
