State Representative Ben Leman filed House Bills 918 and 919, which are aimed at protecting and enhancing Second Amendment rights.

HB 918 would allow certain individuals who have obtained a protective order against an aggressor to legally possess a concealed carry permit for the duration of their protective order. HB 919 would stop the overreach of the federal government — which continues to undermine Second Amendment rights in Leman’s opinion — by preventing any new federal laws or executive orders that further infringe on the right to bear arms from being enforced by any state or local government. In addition, Leman filed House Concurrent Resolution 15, in hopes of recognizing the historical significance the 1847 Colt Walker Pistol holds for Texas.
