To be fair, based on the places I have lived, open carry has never required a permit in a lot of states. A slightly progressive part of Texas simply rolled back the knuckle dragging American lowest common denominator.
 
This could probably go un a couple other threads as well.

Um, Vermont has been this way forever...

Well, yeah.

This also - Colorado has been like this, I think, forever.

attended the same gun safety class as dick cheney evidently...

Uh. He was filming a movie. You ever see one of those. Where they point fake guns at each other and shoot?

Was an old times western, guessing someone probably packed a black powder pistol with a little too much pep.

yea, baldwin doesn't strike me as a cold blooded killer, but wtf kind of prop gun has projectiles in it?
I looked into this a while back, there are companies in hollywood that maintain arsenals of real weapons, because it's not practical to manufacture custom one-off blank guns, they also want that muzzle flash and ejecting the rounds to look realistic, so they tend to use real weapons most of the time. All one would have to do is put a round in there. I bet you could find these companies if you did a search, they probably use them as contractors on a film....."shoot".

If it was at point blank, maybe...but in general the escaping asses and tiny powder debris would only be enough to maim or injure, generally not kill. I say generally though because holding a heavy rifle that needs a lot of power to cycle up to someone's head and firing a blank might still do it, but this generally decreases exponentially with any distance. They were much more concerned with us in the Army injuring someone if we didn't have the blank protector plug on, not killing.
