LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock teenager agrees to dismiss certain people from his lawsuit against the state of Texas.  James D'Cruz and the National Rifle Association are suing Texas in Lubbock federal court.  On Friday D'Cruz agreed to drop Texas Public Safety Commission Board members from his lawsuit.  The Texas DPS Director Steven McCraw is still, however, named in the lawsuit.

D'Cruz claims it's unconstitutional for Texas to prohibit concealed carry permits for persons between the ages of 18 through 20.  The case has made national news several times.  Just a few days ago the Washington Post wrote an editorial critical of D'Cruz and the NRA for suing Texas.
