Yes. I've been asked to hold do something I've never done before, but it sounds like a good idea. I've been planning to announcer the new initiative this Tuesday, but the suggestion was to do it at a dinner event at a location that seats up to 200 people and record it. (This was brought up after I posted my invitation to have a debate/town hall meeting.) That way we can have the initiative explained and take questions from the floor. We can also talk about this legislative session. Then, all of this will be available on the Internet.

If there's enough interest, I'll put it together. However it is announced, I really excited about the new initiative and the difference it can make in grassroots activism. Hopefully Texans all over the State will share my enthusiasm.

Chas.
Will it be streamed live? Or archived and linked to?

I'd love to go, depending on location. Corpus, great; San Antonio, road trip; Austin is pushing the limits. Houston, maybe.

Re: SB11 & HB910 This week....

Sen. Whitmire, in his dressing down of Sen. Huffines, mentioned that Philedelphia had different laws regarding open carry than the rest of PA. What he (naturally) forgot to mention is the higher crime rate: http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/pa/philadelphia/crime/

It's things like this that our side needs to be more versed on, and call out the other side for getting out ALL the facts.

The other side is more organized. Last session, during the campus carry debate, Johnny Wood and his ilk allegedly came from all over and parked in Texas and called, stating they were college kids in Texas and were against it.

This time, those against this yelled louder.

If I was against it, I'd be for it after listening to Dutton. :patriot:

That is incorrect.

PERIOD. It doesn't say if Nancy Worrywort sees it and calls the police.

Just because Open Carriers aren't obligated to display the license doesn't mean police cannot engage in different ways (including small talk).
