Texas lawmaker pushing for Constitutional Carry

I don’t think Constitutional Carry is a good idea.  I do believe in protecting yourself and your home.  But to actually carry without a license, this could mean trouble.  I protect my family and home, but it wasn’t until I signed up for a class to get my LTC that I realized how much I did not know regarding a gun!  I think in order to carry a gun other than your residence, you need to take a class and get licensed.  Protecting yourself without knowing the laws can get you in trouble instead of the person harming you.  The person harming or robbing you has more rights than you do!  It’s absurd!  We were given many scenarios where the gun owner protecting themselves were actually sued and faced jail time.  Recently, there was an incident where a 19 year-old shot two cops.  He is now facing up to 20 years in prison for what he claims was an accident.  I believe if he’d actually taken the class to obtain his gun license, the scenario would have been much different.
