Live Video on Social Media Captures Terroristic Arrest and Civil Rights Violations of Combat Veteran
Fort Worth, Texas (March 27, 2018) – The State of Texas has honored and respected the rights of its citizens by recently making it legal to open carry a handgun with a license (January 1, 2016). It has always been state law that citizens can carry loaded long rifles in the state without the need of a license, which pre-empts city ordinances that try to restrict this right. Open Carry Texas asserts these rights with little resistance from law enforcement and much support from the community at-large.
