It was shocking this week to hear that a man allegedly pulled a gun on another parent at a Lubbock soccer game. That story has raised questions about gun laws and fear among parents.
The man is now charged with aggravated assault. Hopefully, the system will work and he'll be prosecuted appropriately.
But if this incident has raised questions about concealed handgun laws in Texas: let me remind folks that cases like this are extremely rare and have nothing to do with our right to carry a gun. State law allows that, so we can defend ourselves against criminals.
So consider this: I fully support the concealed handgun laws in Texas. And although parents should not have to worry about someone with a gun at a kids sporting event, this is not a gun issue. It is a bad choice by one individual, and should not be used as a case against concealed handguns.
