My Rep of fourteen years came in second and is facing a runoff with the newcomer.

Re: Joe Straus supporters list??

Understood, but concerns about Straus center on his efforts for the last several sessions to delay, obstruct, or outright block positive changes in CHL laws.

Re: Joe Straus supporters list??

I appreciate the list.

Guess I'll be voting for the newcomer.

Sad because my Rep has been on the right side of everything else that mattered to me.

Joe Straus supporters list??

I'm actually very satisfied with my State Rep and he has the NRA endorsement.

But I was wondering if there was a source to find a list of those who keep electing Straus as Speaker.

If my Rep is one, I might seriously consider a conservative newcomer.

Re: How to deal effectively with businesses with 30.06 signs

But, I've got to wonder. . . . Why hasn't something like this already been done, or has it? This is pure speculation on my part, but experienced activists know that the only thing worse than not starting a grassroots campaign is starting one and having only a minuscule response. I'm reminded of the...

Re: H.E.B. and their reason for no open carry

Just made a call to H.E.B. corporate to ask about the 30.07 postings in their stores. The representative at Customer Relations first told me they were a privately held company and could make any decision they wished about open carry. I agreed with her and explained they were affecting licensed carr...

Re: Texas3006 site blowing up

I realize this is just my opinion and not legally correct, but as I see it, there's a good likelihood that an establishment changing from no posting to both 30.06 and 30.07 intended to ban open carry only, possibly due to "pressure" or inaccurate advice. I foresee some campaigns reminisce...

Re: Anyone going to carry in Sprouts in 2016?

H-E-B has posted 30.07 signs at all locations.

According to a TV news report and a call I made to customer service, they have no issue with concealed carry.

Re: Are the new 30.06 signs valid now, or not until 2016?

Since there is no function to search by date, would it be possible to add sort by date?

Re: Are the new 30.06 signs valid now, or not until 2016?

I was thinking more of a way to determine months or a year from now, how many new postings were probably caused by open carry.

Do you record the date of their initial report?

Russell,

Will there be a way to track those who post 30.06 in conjunction with 30.07 that had not previously posted 30.06?
