THANKS FOR NOTHIN!!
"LoneStarCDL" does not understand how bills are written and has a fear-monger agenda. It appears he wants to drum up hate for NRA/TSRA and get new converts to his organization.
If a bill is written that adds sections to statutes, as SB 766 does, the existing, unchanged language is not placed in the bill again. Rather, you only add what new or modified items that are changing in the bill.
If you want statutes removed by a bill, the bill must strikeout the text to be removed.
SB 766 does nothing of the things claimed by LoneStarCDL. The sections he says are missing are not struck. Look at the bill text yourself: http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/82R/billtext/html/SB00766F.htm. You can see other areas of the bill where deletions are made. The sections c and d he refers to are not struck. Thus, they are completely unchanged.
I also do not understand how this new organization can attempt to advance any legislation at all, period, if the leaders do not understand this simple format of bills on the Texas legislature website.
