“Chicken Little” Predictions & Bogus Cost Figures; What’s Next?

Perhaps the Oracle of Delphi will soon speak on the subject.

First we have Kelly Burke, President of the Texas Chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, giving false testimony under oath (video at the 07:56:50 mark) during public hearings in the Senate State Affairs Committee on the campus-carry Bill (SB11).


Another Law to Benefit Criminals

The risk of being a criminal should be shouldered by the criminal, not innocent Texans.

During the 2013 Texas Legislative Session, Sen. Royce West filed a bill that would have gutted the protections of SB378 that passed in 2007. It would have benefitted criminals at the extreme prejudice of law-abiding Texans. (See SB1349: A Criminal’s Dream Come True.) This session, Rep. Garnett Coleman has filed another bill that seeks to protect criminals from their own unlawful and violent acts. HB1627 would impose a retreat duty on the part of a would-be victim of a violent attack. It is painfully clear that Sen. West and Rep. Coleman care more about violent criminals than they do the honest Texans these predators wish to victimize.


Stop Posting Unenforceable 30.06 Signs

Local intimidation of Concealed Handgun Licensees must stop!

Government property off-limits by statute.

The Texas Concealed Handgun License statute was created in 1995 with the passage of Senate Bill 60. Among the provisions in SB60 was the designation of certain governmental property that would be off-limits to Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHLs) carrying self-defense handguns. In 1997, HB2909 passed that, among other things, created Tex. Penal Code §30.06, Trespass by a Holder of a License to Carry a Concealed Handgun, with its clear and unambiguous requirements for property owners to follow if they wished to bar entry to their property by CHLs carrying self-defense handguns. This was made necessary by the practice of posting small generic “no guns” decals on locations that could easily go unseen by CHLs entering property.
