Re: School sends note that perv. is in area

We've actually been discussing a similar topic on another board I frequent. I won't post a link because the guys tend to be pretty vulgar, but here's an (edited) excerpt: I grabbed a 2-year-old by the collar before he ran out into the street. I looked afterward, and there weren't any cars coming, bu...

Re: The Brady Bunch has caught on the campus carry movement

Let's make sure Texas is not the first state to pass legislation to allow guns on campus. They have nothing to worry about. Utah beat us to it. As have many other states that permit individual schools to set their own policies. "Guns on Campus" legislation was rejected in all 17 states where it was...

Re: Urgent Action Items: Parking lots & campus-carry

I called Sen. Shapiro today and spoke with a staff member. The young lady said that the senator has not yet taken a position on either bill and is open to input from her constituents. I expressed my support for both bills and followed up with the reasons why. The staff member agreed to pass those al...

Re: Buffalo Wild Wings (Plano) Anti-gun!

I don't push the "white letters on glass" or because the english and spanish were the same color, thus failing the "contrasting colors" requirement, but I think the 1" letters requirement is extremely clear. If they meant 3/4" letters were close enough, they would have said something vague like "la...

Re: Urgent Action Items: Parking lots & campus-carry

I just got off the phone with Rep. McCall's office. He was in committee meetings, so I left a message with his staff. I tried to hit the talking points on both bills and requested that he consider signing on as a co-author. As an aside, which do you guys recommend - calling or faxing? I prefer to ca...

Re: Is Open-Carry Dead for 2009?

...and my position as well. For me, the right to open carry has less to do with full-on open carry and more to do with relaxing the rules on concealed carry to make it more practical. The option to partially conceal would be of benefit to all CHL'ers, even if they don't want to open carry. And there...

Re: Store firearms IN vehicles while parked at work!

I would hope that this proposed legislation would also apply to educators. Currently my spouse is prohibited from daily carry due to her employment contract with a large Houston area ISD. Even though she has a CHL the employment contract supersedes her rights. I know that I do not want her working ...

Re: TSRA Alert: HB1301, Same as SB370 Park'g Lots

I called Rep. McCall today but was only able to reach an aide. I expressed my support for the bill, and the aide said she would have the rep give me a call back. She also said they've been getting alot of calls about this bill, but could not tell me Rep. McCall's position (something about needing to...
