Cleburne – Dewayne Burns is working hard to win a primary runoff for Texas House District 58, looking to edge his opponent, PhilipEby, and replace veteran solon Rob Orr.
He’s looking to form a coalition with other like-minded conservative Republicans to put six guns back on the hips of Texans as a constitutional right, in a law patterned after that of Vermont’s, which grants the right to carry a handgun openly, simply as a benefit of citizenship and the Second Amendment.
No permit required, no license, no training, no nothing. The only restriction, he says, will be in courthouses and schools – places where guns are a no no, anyway.
Constitutional carry tops his list of must do priorities. It ranks beside illegal immigration, quality of education, right to life, and a strong law enforcement profile for the Lone Star State. Burns has a solid conservative background, starting with work for Rick Perry as a weights and measures inspector at the Texas Department of Agriculture, then a legislative analyst for Rep. Arlene Wohlgemuth. He is a member of a ranching family who serves on the board of the Cleburne Independent School District. Eby is a Clifton resident of Bosque County. District 58 covers most of Johnson and Bosque.
