Rep. Travis Clardy’s weekly Capitol update

(Continued)

AUSTIN —

Finally, I wanted to mention a few of the bills that have been floating around the House regarding the Second Amendment. I want to assure you that I am continuing to fight the good fight for our constitutional rights. I will always be a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and to that great end I have co-authored House Bill 1304, House Bill 1009, and House Bill 1531. House Bill 1304 softens the current law on displaying a gun in public. House Bill 1009 creates a new category of law enforcement officers, called school marshals, so that our school districts and charter schools can protect our precious children, and finally, House Bill 1531 ensures that our firefighters and EMTs have the right to carry weapons as they respond to emergency situations.

Visit my official member page at: http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/member-page/?district=11 to view all the legislation we're working on and please reach out to my Capitol or District office to share your thoughts on the issues.
