THANK YOU MR. COTTON........For all you have done, did, and will do. You are second to none in the diligent guard over the 2nd Amendment and associated legislation, etc.

I know you make me proud I am a Texan!

I heard a familiar voice over the distant saltgrass. The voice was tired. Claimed he never worked so hard in his life for something he cared so little for. A true servant for the greater cause.

A Texas size thanks for Charles, Alice and Tara. We did not pitch a no hitter, but we were on the score board and did it positively. Makes all those faxes, calls and emails worth all the effort. Without the help from Charles, TSRA and the NRA we would not have known when and to whom to contact. Keep on keeping on.

Many thanks to Charles, Alice and TSRA and to everyone who emailed, faxed, picked up a phone, and stayed up late worrying about their favorite bill.

I salute you! :tiphat:

Yes, thank you to Charles and Alice as well.

I too want to Chank Alice, Charles, Tara, the NRA and TSRA as groups, and the members of both who made it a point to take up the calls to action as well.

Thank you Charles and the team! I can't imagine the patience, strategic and tactical actions it takes to get multiple major bills through the political maze and egos we have in our Texas legislature.

Was trying to follow with limited connectivity the last two weeks. But I'm very grateful for Charles and the hard work that he, the NRA, and TSRA did on behalf of gun owners through a messy legislative session that nearly didn't see the fruit of that hard work.

Job well done Charles, especially when getting hit from two different sides.

Thank you so much Charles and Alice for advancing CHL for all of us. If it were not for you two we would not have half the stuff we have now.

Indeed, a big "Thank You" to you Charles and all the other folks at the Texas Firearms Coalition and the many behind the scenes volunteers who worked so hard to push this legislation on behalf of gun owners.
