This. With Patterson as Lt. Governor. Doesn't get much better than that for the people of the gun.

Yes this may make some upset because it is against what they want but that is why or system is so great we can voice our displeasure at the ballot box.
And that is exactly how Bill White (or similar) would become the next Governor of Texas.
Then maybe Perry should have stepped up to the plate when he was called.
You'd rather have proven anti-gun former Houston Mayor Bill White as Governor?

Chas.
But, of course, that's a false dichotomy. I've seen several posts lately saying that would should continue to support Perry because he's not anti-gun, he's not as bad as White, etc. But that's simply not true - we're not limited to choosing between Perry and White. There are plenty of other candidates we can support - particularly those whith Tea Party or Libertarian views. Perry was challenged in the primaries last time around, and I'm sure he will be again. We can rally together behind someone like Medina or Abott. Can you imagine what would happen if the TSRA endorsed someone other than Perry in a primary and was up-fornt about why? Perry might still win, but at least he'd know that he can't run on past victories forever. The same holds true for the Lt. Governor and legislative offices.
Yep
Then you are an enemy of the Second Amendment and Texas gun owners.

Chas.
Do you care to back up that personal attack? Can you explain to me why I'm an enemy? Is it because I think we can do better than Perry or because I questioned your almighty wisdom?
Some people (Texas Tribune ) seem to think that Perry is handing off the reins anyways. That would explain some of the give up we've seen out of the Governors office lately. Greg Abbott is obviously gearing up for a run at the position. Do people really think that a large number (or any) of those who voted for Perry are going to vote for Bill White (or some other Dem) if Perry's not on the ticket?

Enemy of the Second Amendment and Texas gun owners?? I don't get it...
