The next time you take your family to the Houston Zoo, you can bring your licensed handgun along, too.
The zoo lifted its gun ban after receiving a demand letter from an independent attorney with Texas Law Shield, a Houston-based legal services company focusing on gun rights issues, the Houston Chronicle first reported yesterday.
Backed by a recently-passed Texas bill authorizing the Attorney General to investigate and possibly fine "political subdivisions" that post signs prohibiting weapons where concealed handgun license holders are allowed to carry, T. Edwin Walker sent a letter to the zoo just two days after the bill went went into effect on September 1.
In response the above sign was taken down and now "freedom" reigns in Texas zoos.
Animals in cages with no way to escape.
Visitors packing weapons.
Nope, nothing can go wrong here.
