House resoundingly approves gun-license privacy
By W. Gardner Selby | Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 11:07 AM

Dripping Springs Rep. Patrick Rose won resounding preliminary approval of his proposal ending the ability of anyone to check with the state on whether someone else has a license to carry a concealed handgun.

Democratic Rep. Lon Burnam of Fort Worth urged rejection by saying it didn’t make sense to make handgun licenses the only state-issued licenses not subject to open-records inquiries.

“Why should we treat this particular license as a particularly protected class?” Burnam asked. “We need to defend the principle of open records.”

Rose, a Democrat, urged approval on behalf of 267,000 licensed Texans.

Members backed the proposal by 135-7.

Among the “no” votes: Rep. Valinda Bolton, D-Austin, who said afterward she voted as a parent who wants to keep the right to check on whether someone has a license for a handgun.

“As a parent, I want to know that I could” check that, she said.

SB 534(and companion HB)...legislation pertaining to carrying weapons on employers property - no movement since 4/25. Think may be dead for this session.
