Re: I Hope I am Wrong

Speaker Strauss has no intention of letting pro-gun bills pass. That would be a slap in the face to the Washington crowd right now and I don't think that Strauss is willing to do that. If true, he needs to go. It is rediculous for a Republican congress in a solidly conservative state to not pass pr...

Re: Reason for Optimism?

I hate the phrase "guardedly optimistic" because it's so over used, but it applies to my feelings at this time. Many people, me included, were very concerned about the appointment of an El Paso Democrat, Joe Pickett, as Chairman of the House Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee. It appeared ...

Re: New Post: Campus Carry in Texas

New Post: Campus Carry in Texas Texas campus carry, HB972, was delayed in committee last Friday in an effort to hear from more constituents. I thought they heard from a lot of constituents. Are they delaying because they didn't hear what they wanted to hear? The delay is SOP. They didn't delay it i...
