Texas: Evacuate with your loaded guns bill passed the House

HB 1177 passed the Texas House of Representatives. It would give in to some gun nuts who would feel safer with their gun at the ready when told to leave their home because of a disaster. This macho attitude envisions they are the only ones with a gun. However, the rule applies to everyone. Surely, with potentially desperate people around, gun fights over basic food or water might happen. Adding lots of guns to the mix would only accelerate the risks for everyone. Image evacuating out your front door with your family ready to shoot anyone in sight for fear of being shot first.
