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 accomplishment?

Chas.
I do, that's part of the purpose of my original post. This session didn't give the TSRA or NRA an opportunity to do anything that we could see. I want a post mortem so that the things that were done on our behalf are mentioned.

I also want to highlight how much damage Bonnen really did. Without his actions, I don't think we have to spend as much political capital killing bad bills and can spend it on promoting good ones.

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 apartments and condos, this session produced nothing new for gun owners in general.

It would be good to know what, if anything, the NRA and TSRA was doing to advocate for us this session. I understand that any actions taken this session were done quietly and behind the scenes because there was nothing to do publicly, thanks to Rep. Bonnen's betrayal. But members do want to know what these organizations are doing for us.
