to see what the carry laws were like in other states? I was surprised to find out that Iowa was a may issue state (I know that just changed) and that the local issuing authority could put pretty much whatever restrictions they wanted on a carry permit when they did decide to issue it. I was shocked :jawdropper: when I read up on the laws in Texas over the last few days as it sure doesn't go with my mental "don't mess with Texas" image at all.

NY, NJ, Chicago- those places don't surprise me at all.

Not only that:

First time permit costs $140 and requires a 10 hr class which costs around $110. Renewal are $70 and require a half day class. If you renew 3 times they will let you skip one renewal class. Nice of them.

Texas has 25 million people and only around 250,000 CHL holder. Georgia has a population approaching 10 million and over 400,000 GFL holders. Wonder why? They don't seem to have any kind of organization that can hold a candle to GCO for activism.

TSRA has been around for a while, but they don't do anything.

Evidently, the TSRA opposes open carry. The more I read about them the more they seem like a mini-NRA for Texas.

Quite the opposite, in fact: they don't collect dues or spam you with donation requests.

Interesting. I wonder if I was grandfathered in. I never received a notice about dues.
Maybe if you are just involved with their PAC only? I signed up for their PAC newsletter at no cost and I am interested to see what it says.
