Re: Post Mortem

I'm wondering if there will be a post mortem following this disastrous session of the Tx Leg. Normally we have, you know bills to follow and public hearings to discuss. This year, even the crickets where silent. We got exactly one bill through. Although it was an important bill for folks who live i...

Re: Speaker Bonnen sued in Federal Court for 1st amendment violations, blocking critics on Facebook

All of you older guys spouting “but it is only Facebook” are extremely and insanely naive. You are projecting your own dislike of social media onto everyone. Anyone who remotely understands the concept of “winning hearts and minds” sees Facebook for the incredibly important cyber battlefield that i...

Re: Speaker Bonnen sued in Federal Court for 1st amendment violations, blocking critics on Facebook

Perhaps not, but often in a debate the point isn't to win over the person you are debating but to win over the people who might be watching. In the presidential debates Trump didn't win over Hillary, but he sure as hell won over others. Being able to criticize Bonnen and others like him won't win h...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

All of that glosses over the meat of the subject. Wayne makes millions of dollars every year working for a “non-profit” using members dues. Then we find out he’s blowing 280 grand on clothes on rodeo drive, putting an intern up in a rented apartment and jetting all over using up even more money? If...

Re: Instructor Renewal

It's a 4 year cycle. Every 4 years, we have to attend classes w/DPS (IIRC, we did that last cycle), Every other cycle, we just renew online. We'll probably have to demonstrate proficiency with other LTC instructors. I don't recall there being any extra renewal steps required for instructors certifi...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I think all executives making over $100,000.00 / year need to have term limits ( as I believe congress should have.) We need an audit by a reputable independent accounting firm and let the chips fall where they may. If anyone is opposed to such an audit then something fishy is most likely afoot. Th...

Sorry I'm late adding my prayers. I've been out of tough at NRA HQ. I'm glad you have a diagnosis and a fix. Get well soon!

Re: Texas House backs open display of handguns in cars

https://www.statesman.com/news/20190502/texas-house-backs-open-display-of-handguns-in-cars How did this bill even get past Bonnen's Democrat committee gatekeepers for a floor vote? There are more good bills progressing than would have been the case, had people not responded to my article. Bonnen wi...

Re: Florida CHL taught in Texas news story

Florida does not have a problem with their licensees committing crimes, nor does Texas have a problem with Florida visitors carrying pursuant to a Florida license. So what is the problem Ch. 2?

Re: NRA in the crosshairs

I'm on the Finance Committee and I'm Chairman of the Audit Committee. The bogus claims, but I cannot and will not discuss it further in an open forum. You can believe me or not, but no one is going to use the Forum to slander the NRA.
