Vice-Chair Parks Supports Personal Protection Empowerment Bill HB 1927
Austin, TX: Today, Republican Party of Texas Vice-Chair Cat Parks formally supports House Bill 1927.
“Dr. Charles Schwertner’s statement to the Texas Senate today echoes the citizen-driven movement behind HB 1927. The same goes for Lt Gov. Dan Patrick bringing it to the floor for a vote. It is a bi-partisan bill born out of and fueled by the self-determination of Texans to empower themselves.
HB 1927 is for the nurse attacked while walking to her car alone at night. It is for the mother and child being pulled into a van while walking home from the park. It is for the handyman that is robbed at gunpoint while loading up his truck.
The Senate passing HB 1927 would give true equity for everyday Texans to defend against criminals who care nothing of law & order. Vermont, a state that supports Bernie Sanders Socialism, shouldn’t be more capable of bearing arms than Texas. I urge my fellow Texans to call their State Senators and ask them to support HB 1927.”
