The Texas GOP has abandoned an effort to issue an official statement on the 84th legislative session, divided over a proposed resolution that initially would have accused individual lawmakers of standing in the way of gun rights legislation.
As proposed at the committee level, the resolution would have rebuked four Republican lawmakers...
The legislators named included House Speaker Joe Straus of San Antonio, Rep. Dennis Bonnen of Angleton, Rep. Larry Phillips of Sherman and Sen. Joan Huffman of Houston.
...Lawmakers "need to know they cannot do this and there is no consequence," said Bonnie Lugo, an SREC member from Senate District 13.
...There is a means of doing that which is called the next election."
Say what you want about Stickland, if the House were full of members like him instead of the RINOs, we would now have real campus carry (SB11 unamended) and perhaps constitutional carry, where we wouldn't be having silly arguments over the need for the Dutton/Huffines amendments and whether federal appellate cases from the 4th and 6th, but not the 5th, Circuit Court of Appeals apply the 4th Amendment to LEO with respect to OC.
