CJ Grisham Told By Senators That The NRA & TSRA Tried To Persuade Them Against No ID Amendent
CJ Grisham, the founder of Open Carry Texas, Has made an eye opening statement on his Facebook page. Mr Grisham stated that he was informed by a Senator that during a recess on Friday when HB 910 was being debated, the NRA & TSRA were in the halls trying to get Senators NOT to vote for an amendment that states that the open carry of a handgun, by itself, can not be a reason to stop someone and check for a permit.
I find it odd that some politicians, law enforcement and maybe even the NRA do not realize that the Fourth Circuit has made it very clear that the open carry of a firearm, in an open carry state, does not create or satisfy reasonable suspicion for a detainment, Just like when you are driving down the road, an officer can not pull you over for no reason.
If this allegation is true and I believe it is, the NRA has some serious explaining to do as well as owing an apology to the membership it owes everything too.
