I e-mailed the ones on the committee that had not signed on, it probably took me 10-15 minutes. Very easy to do and small cost for freedom. Remember freedom is not free! When good men do nothing evil men prevail. The following is an example of the content I e-mailed. It is very easy, type what you want in the first one, copy and paste into the next representative or call them. Glenn
I would like to urge you to support law-abiding Texans by voting for HB 681 (TSRA’s Parking Lot Bill) in committee and on the House floor, and stop industry amendments by passing the “as filed” version.

HB 681 by Kleinschmidt to be heard in House Business and Industry Committee!
HB 681 by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington) TSRA’s Parking Lot Bill
Everyday 400,000 Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees make a decision between their personal safety and their employer’s No-Gun employment policies. The courts have ruled that a person may give up certain rights to secure employment. Texans should not be forced to make such a decision.
HB 681 is limited to the legal possession of a firearm and ammunition when stored out of sight in a private vehicle parked on property controlled by the employer. It doesn’t include the UPS truck or a vehicle provided by that employer. The firearm must stay in the vehicle at all times.
HB 681 also provides security for the employer when following Texas law in the form of civil immunity.
The employer maintains full control outside that vehicle, on the job-site, or in the work place, as it should be. TSRA believes HB 681 strikes a reasonable balance between the employer’s rights and the rights of Texans to this personal safety option. The bill includes all legally possessed firearms and ammunition.
