    Postak Thousands sign petition to make Texas an open-carry state

    Texas, despite its independence and frontier reputation, is one of only six states where handguns cannot in some form legally be worn in plain view. In Texas, where residents may carry concealed handguns if they have a permit, more than 3,500 people have signed an online petition asking Gov. Rick Perry and the Legislature to make Texas an open-carry state.

    It would be nice if you did not have to hide it. Be proud, show every one what you carry. Would like to carry my 357 sig P229 with lazer.
    It is to big to hide. My fingers are crossed. Where is that on line petition???
