Re: Post Mortem

An accomplishment I didn't see posted already: All the bad bills that didn't pass. There was a fairly lengthy list as I recall. Good defense is also good play, just not as spectacular as good offense. I didn't rob a bank today. Where's my trophy? I guess you don't consider killing bad bills an acco...

Post Mortem

I'm wondering if there will be a post mortem following this disastrous session of the Tx Leg. Normally we have, you know bills to follow and public hearings to discuss. This year, even the crickets where silent. We got exactly one bill through. Although it was an important bill for folks who live in...

Re: "Nobody has ever stopped a mass-shooter..."

It's also impossible to quantify if/when a mass shooting was deterred because of the potential presence of armed citizens. One can infer that many have been deterred since the overwhelming majority of mass shootings have happened in GFZ's. The same can be said for any crime that is deterred. Even a ...

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
No, but as of right now this is uncorroborated.

Re: Democrat control in 2020

Primary them all in 2020... Only a politician will tell you a tax increase of 2.5% is relief. 2020, throw the bums out. Alas, I live about 5 miles outside of Bonnen's district. I had considered running against him in the next primary if I could find the supporters. If anyone decides to mount a prim...

Re: ATF says bump-stocks have never been used in a crime...

I'm not paranoid, but given that we've been fed the line all along that "the Vegas shooter used bump-stocks!" - and they've subsequently been banned - this is rather interesting: https://i.imgur.com/8MkLxWT.jpg AndyC, Where did you get this from? I can find no updates on the Samboulieh law firm's w...

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

It is sad that Bonnen was able to torpedo all pro 2A legislation to the point that the only legislation we have to discuss on this board is legislation that determines whether or not you change your clock twice a year. :banghead: :banghead:

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

She didn't she was talking about his Tshirt. It evolved into an actual gun, like so many stories that get passed around. Oh, so a lot of people aren't telling the truth about what she said? Actually, Dennis Bonnen himself claimed that McNutt was "flashing a gun" around when visiting local legislato...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

It's wrong when crowds of idiots surround Cruz or McConnell at dinner and it's wrong when one idiot shows up at a Bonnen's door. Those activities are personal and outside of acceptable political discourse and should be mocked and punished as necessary. Please enlighten me on what is considered acce...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

I’m inclined to be suspicious of any video made by, or featuring CJ Grisham - who has only a tenuous grasp on reality. Care to elaborate? This appears to be DPS body cam video. So unless CJ became a DPS trooper, I'm not sure what it has to do with video exposing Dennis Bonnen and his wife as liars....

Re: HB 357 Constitutional Carry

Feels like liberals from California are flooding into Texas as Texans, move out. I fear that in a couple of decades, you won't be able to tell a political difference in Texas and California. It will never happen. Only because California keeps moving left. But you're right that Texas will soon be fa...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I really hope Robert Frances gets the nomination. Can't wait to watch DJT make fun of him for being an artificial hispanic and for his greatest accomplishment being the losing of an election.

I wonder what his nickname will be:

Loser Beto?
FakeJose?
