The kind of bars are not the main factor. I'm sure you could gain a more upright position on your current bike by swapping out the stem for one with a different angle and reach...at worst you might need to get a new fork with an uncut steerer tube so you can add more spacers.
Just putting flat bars on your TCR may not make your position all that upright...and doing so would require new shifters, brakes, etc. I would try getting your current bars higher before going to a different bar.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
