Highlights his record of leadership defending Second Amendment rights
AUSTIN – Texas State Senator Dan Patrick, authentic conservative candidate for Lieutenant Governor released his newest television ad called “This is America”. The ad features Senator Patrick’s strong record of leadership defending Texans’ Second Amendment rights. The ad is running in major markets in Texas on Fox News.
The Wickers Group, a nationally known political media firm, produced the ad for the campaign. It is the third ad the campaign has aired since their ad campaign began on October 7, 2013.
Dan Patrick has been a leading champion for the Second Amendment in the Texas Senate and has passed or helped pass seven pro-gun bills. He successfully joint authored the Castle Doctrine, SB378 (80-R), extending Texans’ rights to use deadly force for means of self-defense, without retreat, in their home, vehicle or workplace.
For the last three sessions, Dan Patrick was a joint author of Campus Carry, to allow the carrying of concealed handguns on the campuses of institutions of higher education: SB1164 (81-R), SB354 (82-R), SB182 (83-R).
In the 82nd Regular Session, Patrick successfully sponsored Carry in Watercrafts, HB25 (82-R), allowing carrying of a weapon in a watercraft that is owned or controlled by the person carrying the weapon.
Senator Patrick was a successful co-author of a Parking Lot Bill SB321 (82-R), protecting the right of employees to possess a handgun in their car at work.
In the 2013 session, Senator Patrick passed HB48 (83-R) to lower regulatory requirements on CHL renewals, HB3370 (83-R) expanding the right of retired law enforcement officers to carry and co-authored SB1907 (83-R) which prohibits universities from banning CHL holders from lawfully storing handguns in their vehicles on campus.
Dan Patrick’s record of defending the Second Amendment and protecting the rights of law abiding citizens to use firearms for hunting, sporting, personal protection and self-defense is unassailable.
