I admit I didn’t read the entire bill posted.  How is this different from current law?

Bottom line - Constitutional carry.  No licensing required for anyone that can legally own a pistol to carry same open OR concealed.

This looks like the latest incarnation. Are we going to be taking bets this year?

I wish - but it's early still.  Thing is, Strickland's alienated a lot of his fellow leg's, so we'll see.

But, for the record:

i dont quite understand the rationale of this being cancelled, but i am pretty naive to politics i guess

https://www.texastribune.org/2019/04/05/texas-constitutional-carry-dead-Jonathan-stickland/ 

anyone have thoughts on this?

"According to the Houston Chronicle, Bonnen called the activist's move “gutless.” And Democratic state Rep. Poncho Nevárez, D-Eagle Pass, who chairs the House committee where Stickland’s legislation was referred, told The Texas Tribune this morning that he initially planned to give the bill a hearing but, “the behavior of certain groups and/or individuals who are unreasonable on their expectations and even more unreasonable in their behavior caused me to reconsider."

" “I refuse to act like it is still a possibility and continue to provide false hope to my constituents,” Stickland said. “I cannot participate in political theatre and ask that Texans come to Austin to spend their time and money for a piece of legislation that has no path to success.” "

IMHO, Bonnen had NO intention of ever allowing the legislation to see the floor for a vote - this was just a good excuse.  Otherwise, we're forced to believe that he's small-minded enough to punish the millions of law-abiding Texans for the actions of ONE person.  And I'll add that you're reading HIS version of events - I've seen several stories with a different narrative.
