Texas has further cemented its commitment to protecting the Second Amendment by officially becoming America's 21st constitutional carry state.

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has now signed HB 1927 into law, allowing Texans to exercise their constitutional rights by legally carrying a firearm.

The constitutional carry law will go into effect on September 1, 2021, The Texas Tribune reported.

The legislation allows all law-abiding residents, 21-years-old and older, to carry a handgun for self-defense.

The new law removes the requirement for a permit from the government.

The move has faced a backlash from the Left, however.

Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) spoke out against constitutional carry after Abbott signed the bill.

"The permitless carry bill will cause more violence and loss," Escobar claims.

Escobar blasted Abbott and Republicans as "cowards" over the move to empower citizens to defend themselves.

"Despite overwhelming support for common-sense gun violence prevention legislation like universal background checks, Texas Republicans, led by a cowardly governor, are more interested in groveling for the gun lobby’s attention than they are in preventing gun violence and honoring victims and survivors in El Paso and across Texas," she said.

As Neon Nettle reported last month, Abbott has previously voiced his support for the bill.

"Constitutional carry is moving in the #txlegey,” Abbott tweeted.

"The strongest Second Amendment legislation in Texas history.

"Let’s get it to my desk for signing #2A #SecondAmendment.”

The Tribune notes that the Texas House passed HB 1927 on March 21, 2021, and the Texas Senate passed it on March 22.
