Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Bans Open Carry For 2016 Event
Still chuckling because the backlash continues against HB 901, the open carry law the GOP controlled Texas Lege passed that took effect January 1. A long list of venues in Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio have banned open carry in their establishments, and earlier today the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo joined that long list of events in doing so.
"It's our goal to promote a family friendly atmosphere," said Joel Cowley, president and CEO of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo."We don't think the private carry of handguns is conducive to that."
Hmm, may have to check our the rodeo for the first time since i moved back home, now that I know drunken fools walking around the complex won't be armed.
