KOSA is reporting the Texas Senate is getting behind a bill that would allow first responders besides police to carry firearms. Authored by Senator Don Huffines of Dallas, the bill is now pending in the house.

Huffines says first responders are the ones who often arrive before police, and should have the ability to protect themselves if they need to.

The bill would call for eligible responders get the usual concealed handgun license, plus 20 hours of training. They would then be allowed to carry in restricted areas only while on duty. Training would also cover tactical response, shooting, and how to seek cover.
