1.Unit One Discussion: Constitutional Carry
Your answer needs to be no less than 300 words and no more than 400 words.
This Unit’s topic of discussion is constitutional carry of handguns. Until recently, Texans had to 1) pass a background check; 2) take a firearm safety class; and, 3) show basic proficiency with a handgun to carry a handgun. With their license to carry (called an LTC) they can carry open (holstered on their hip where anyone can see it) or concealed, so long as they abide by other restricted places such as bars, stadiums and businesses that have put up signs saying they do not want guns in their building. This is all for handguns, rifles can be carried by anyone over the age of 18 with no license.
“Constitutional carry” has been fiercely debated during the legislature and the objective was to eliminate the need for everyone to go through the process of getting the LTC. Texas’ constitution says that Texans have the right to bear arms, but the state can regulate this “with a view to prevent violence.”
The question: Should Texas have adopted “constitutional carry” of firearms? Does the law at least attempt to prevent violence, or is it an unreasonable restriction on Texans right to bear arms? What will the ramifications of this law being passed, if any?

2.Some people love Texas and others love to make fun of her. According to some, we all ride horses, shoot guns, dodge tornadoes and execute people on a daily basis. Tell me about your favorite Texas stereotypes – here are some ideas: What have you heard from people outside of the State? If you are from Texas – are you more proud to be from Texas or from the US? What do other states and countries think of Texas and Texans? What are the positive and negatives about living in Texas (other than the heat – we all know it is hot)? What is the most boring state in the union and why? These are just some of the idea of things to write about – you can write about more.
