Texas: On Monday (4/08), a bill to pressure churches to allow guns will be heard

No More Funerals

As the NRA wants guns everywhere, it explains why they want guns in churches. So, the NRA just asked their members to attend the hearing and to contact the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence members in support of the bill. To help oppose these gun nuts, a call right now from concerned citizens would be very effective.

The Bill

👎 House Bill 1231 would add churches and synagogues to locations must allow licensed gunners with their weapons. That is unless they are given sufficient notice of a restriction.
