Re: 3rd Special Session?

You can dream but Freddy Kruger will have to appear in Rick Perry's dreams and tell him to get more progun laws passed.

I feel your pain - lame is part of the problem. I'll duck now.

Re: Another special session?

Working in the business, I would bet there are as many irresponsible 21 year olds on the street as in the school. You know of course that there can be guns in cars now - so that horse has left the barn. How many CHL gun fights over gals have there been outside of school? Last, what about the force r...

Re: Another special session?

Yep, we don't need the government in our wallets, holsters, religions or crotch. Nor recording every phone call or internet message.

Amazing how some only want to protect a subset of liberty but are tyrants on other domains.

Rick, Bloomberg - take your pick - choose how they want to control you.

Re: Another special session?

The issue is simple. Perry was willing to go the extra step for one issue with vim and vigour. He would not for ours. This is not the first time as he didn't in the previous session. About walking and chewing gum - do you have to shoot a coyote too? I apologize for this snide remark. If he had not m...

Re: Is this permissible in a classroom setting?

Use a blue gun, airsoft or a SIRT. Friend of mine took a CHL class and the instructor let loose a 45 ACP from a 1911 over the heads of the class.

Re: Another special session?

1. Doesn't make sense. 2. The work - his crusade against abortion? Actual legislation on how to run the place isn't that. He goes and makes speeches about abortion and the opposition. Where was the speech about gun rights the other day? 3. He refused to use his powers in the previous legislative ses...

Re: Another special session?

Perry had to have the special session to respond to the gallery outburst at the close of the last session. There has to be consequences of mob actions. Oh, yeah - where are the consequences for him ignoring e-mails, faxes, etc. on the gun bills. Where was the RKBA outburst when the Senate did squat...

Re: Another special session?

Has anyone from the gun rights world, like the TSRA, physically asked or directly e-mailed, etc. Perry to put campus carry on the agenda? Has he answered? Otherwise, we will have the same set of posts proclaiming that faxes, smoke signals and voodoo dolls will make this issue come to fruition. If he...

Re: Letter to Governor Rick Perry

Being in the business, I certainly do blame him for not supporting campus carry. I also see no logic or data against this proposition. If you can protect yourself at the mall, on the street or in your place of worship - why cannot students, faculty and staff? If you think these folks cannot have thi...
