Today, members of the Texas Freedom Caucus were privileged to meet with Gov. Abbott to discuss his proposals for school safety. He is leading, listening, and proactively engaging citizens across the State of Texas on this matter of great importance. We shared specific and in-depth concerns regarding changes to gun storage laws, and other measures affecting gun ownership. It is clear that Gov. Abbott shares our goal of protecting the Second Amendment right of Texans to keep and bear arms in their homes in a manner that allows them to utilize firearms for all lawful purposes.
We are thankful for his commitment to work with us throughout the lawmaking process to ensure our mutual goals are met. Gov. Abbott’s proposals are spurring important conversations about parenting, mental health, and school safety. We look forward to working with him in the months ahead.
