We are on the phone with Heather Fazio Texas Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project.
Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo isn’t holding back any of his opinions lately. This time, he’s in the news for expressing his disgust with an amendment to the open carry bill. The amendment, which did pass in the house, prohibits peace keeping officers from questioning those who are carrying their firearms openly. When open carrying a long gun in Texas you do not need a license. So if I don’t need to show a license for the long gun why should it be a problem for the handgun?
