My sense is that Bonnen will lose his NRA “A” grade in one fell swoop after this session. What a catastrophe his speakership has turned out to be.
Did I miss something today?

Re: Speaker Bonnen's betrayal of Texas gun-owners

I would say the speaker is correct. We are the fringe. I do not know a single person who does not own a firearm. I also do not personally know a person who is in the NRA let alone a life member such as myself and many others on this forum. Do you think the average gun owner knows about the speaker assignments? I would be willing to say no. It is us the fringe who are not happy with the status quo in regards to our gun rights. The speakers comments are belittling and meant to make the outspoken seem uninformed when the opposite is true.

Think the dems would put any republicans in as committee chair? I think not. That Dallas Morning news article pointed out that his allies got the coveted assignments and chairmanships. Well if that's true and he put dems in charge of key committees, then his true colors are showing.

I hope he proves us wrong, but I won't hold my breath.

Re: Speaker Bonnen's betrayal of Texas gun-owners

Just remember, he was unanimously voted as speaker. I don't care about secret meetings were the decision is made and then basically agreed upon in public. The vote is what is on record and I will believe the vote.
