In recent months, many Texas police departments have expressed concern that shootings will continue to become more frequent with the state’s ‘constitutional carry’ law, which was passed by the state legislature in May.
The law, which just needs the governor’s signature, would allow anyone to carry a concealed handgun without a permit.
Gov. Greg Abbott hasn’t officially given his signature but promised to do so while the state legislature debated the bill in April and May.
