recent updates on gun laws in texas and ohio

On August 10th, two young adults entered two different public places and opened fire, killing many people. 

In El Paso, a shooter opened fire at a Texas Wal-Mart, where he targeted Hispanics. El Paso is a known popular Mexican place due to its proximity to Mexico. 22 people were killed.

In Dayton, a shooter opened fire on a popular bar, Ned Peppers, on a popular street in Ohio. 10 people were injured.

The most common question for gun owners: Are gun laws going to change?

Check below for recent news on your 2nd amendment rights.


Next month, Texas gun laws will progress. Here are the details:

School Grounds: This law states that schools cannot prohibit licensed gun owners from having a gun in their locked car in the school parking lot so long as they are not in plain view. 

Marshals: This bill loosens restrictions on how many marshals can be in a school district.

Foster Homes: Foster homes may keep guns in their homes, provided it is locked and for personal protection.

Apartments: Landlords cannot prohibit gun owners from keeping a gun in their apartment. 

During A Disaster: If a resident is evacuating Texas, residents cannot be charged with transporting their firearms over state lines.

Places Of Worship: Churches cannot prohibit gun owners from keeping their firearm on them in a place of worship. 

Those who own a firearm will be happy to know their rights are not being restricted after the tragedy.


Red Flag Law: This bill introduced by Ohio's governor states that a judge is allowed to confiscate a gun from anyone who may pose a threat to themselves or others.

Not much else to report on Ohio's gun laws for now.
