Current state rules require those carrying handguns to have a licence, training and backgroung checks. But Texas's Republican-run senate has voted to drop the restrictions, despite warnings from gun control groups that the measures could put lives at risk. Supporters say the new measures would allow Texans to better defend themselves in public. Critics say the bill puts lives at risk Beverly Powell, a Democratic senator, raised safety concerns from some law enforcement groups that opposed the bill. "If I sit down at a restaurant with a gentleman or woman who has a holster on their side and a gun in it, I want to know that person is well-trained in the use of that gun," she said. The bill would still allow businesses to ban guns on their property and keep federal background checks for some gun purchases. After passing in a 18-13 vote in the senate on Monday, the bill will now go to Mr. Abbott, who has already indicated that he will sign it into law.
