Episode #20 of the Texas Firearms Coalition Podcasts has been released. It's available on iTunes, on Stitcher and on the TFC website. Note: Stitcher has an app for android devices as well as the website.

In this Episode: I discuss the rampant dishonesty of the mainstream media and the importance of Constitutional protections like the First and Second Amendments.

Show Topics:
    In The Crosshairs: The American Media: Devil or Angel?
    In The News: 1) IDPA adds Division for pistol caliber carbines (PCC); 2) Anti-Trump riots guised as protests; 3) Anarchists trying to thwart the election with Electoral College
    Your NRA: Too soon to have detailed reports, but early indications are the NRA swung between 4% and 5% in swing states during the Presidential election.
    Guns & Gear: Carrying handguns in cold weather. Shooting in cold weather.
    Q&A: 1) How do NRA Board Members get on different NRA committees; 2) What type of holster do you use for regular carrying; 3) what are the chances that the restricted areas for LTCs will be reduced or eliminated in Texas?

Links to the material discussed are in the show notes on the TFC website.

The TFC Short Shot: The Sandy Hook Promise Video - Propaganda Not PSA[/url] has been released and is available on Stitcher, iTunes and the http://www.TexasFirearmsCoalition.com website. It is an analysis of the video and points out filmmakers' tricks along with attempts to paint all gun owners as simmering mass-murderers.

There's an excellent critique of the video on YouTube, but I'm not going to link it here on the Forum. The language used is terrible and that's a shame since his message is spot on.

This Report covers gun-related bills prefiled for the 2017 Texas Legislative Session between Dec. 6th and 16th, 2016. These are bills filed prior to the opening of the 2017 legislative session. As such, this Report describes the impact of each bill, but there is no legislative activity to report.

None.

The featured bills are HB191 and HB246 by F-Rated Rep. Diego Bernal and F-rated Rep. Rafael Anchia. Both bills would work against Texans who have a License to Carry a Handgun and against private property owners.

The TFC Short Shot: HB987: Rep. Anchia's Protect the Criminal Bill has been released and is available on Stitcher, iTunes and the http://www.TexasFirearmsCoalition.com website. It is discusses Anchia's bill that will repeal the Texas version of a "Castle Doctrine Bill" that passed as SB378 in 2007. I've also posted the transcript in the 2017 Texas Legislative forum, but it doesn't have the hyperlinks that are in the transcript on the TFC website.
