Not because of the shooting…
But because lawmakers in the state passed less restrict rules…
Mass shootings will NOT result in ANY major changes in the American gun culture of gun ownership….
The laws open more opportunities for Texans to have firearms and store ammunition in public places.
From churches to public schools to foster homes, the laws also loosen restrictions on where a firearm is permitted.
The laws were already set to take effect Sept. 1 but come just one day after a routine traffic stop on Interstate 20 triggered a deadly shooting rampage.
Police in Texas say the incident began at 3:13 p.m. CDT Saturday when an assailant described only as a white male in his mid-30s driving a gold-colored car was pulled over by a pair of state troopers for a traffic violation.
The stop turned violent when the man grabbed a rifle and shot multiple times at the pair of troopers through the rear window, wounding one. He then sped off, shooting at other motorists and passers-by. The gunman was later killed by police.
