amarillo.com / Sun, 23 Nov 2014 01:47:29 +0000

AUSTIN — On the eve of the Nov. 4 election, Gov.-elect Greg Abbott said in a statewide teleconference that he would sign an open carry bill if it hit his new desk.

Then, the morning after his landslide victory over Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis of Fort Worth, Abbott reaffirmed his support for legislation that would allow lawful gun owners to carry their firearms in full view.

“Texas, as I understand, is one of only about seven or so states in the United States of America that does not have open carry,” Abbott said in his first news conference as
governor-elect.

Simpson, who sat on stage taking notes as the laughs and groans grew louder, also took some shots of his own at the seven live roasters and several others who contributed via video.
