If it's not a big issue to them, a simple big change with huge benefits makes a lot more sense than complicated, convoluted, chipping away, year after year.

If it's not a big issue to them, they could pass gun rights restoration clean up by Local and Consent Calendars.

It's a shame restoring gun rights doesn't get as much attention and support in the legislative committees as the creation of additional taxing districts such as MUDs. MUDs are hot lately and seem to be getting a lot of support.

Bonnen's really starting to sound like an a.... a jerk.

Obviously this legislative session is down a rat hole! So what can be done for the next legislature isn't run by this guy?
I don't like my representative Phil King but I must admit I think he would have done better than Bonnen!

This thread is about Speaker Bonnen, not anyone else. I've had calls from two reporters asking questions I'm not going into now. We all know enemies of the Second Amendment monitor and copy posts. Keep the thread on topic.

Below is an article posted on TexasFirearmsCoalition.com. I'll be releasing a podcast on this today or tomorrow. This betrayal by Bonnen is astounding and it better start an avalanche of complaints via email and phone calls. These need to go not only to Dennis Bonnen's office, but to everyone else listed in the article. (Don't confuse Speaker Dennis Bonnen with his brother Greg Bonnen.) To put this in perspective, this will be the worst legislative session I've seen in my 39 years of being a legislative and political advocate. This will be an entirely defensive session, solely because of Speaker Bonnen's deliberate and calculated actions.

Chas.
This bears repeating, especially for everybody coming late to the party. Dennis Bonnen recently received a lot of favorable press, from left wing "news" sources, trying to shift the blame. Don't be fooled. He planned to kill gun rights bills from the start. Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

So is anyone organizing anything to keep Bonnen from happening again? I don't know if I'm up for organizing, but I'll contribute where I can.
