Notes on Texas Gun Politics

Texas House Bill 1927, Constitutional Carry, was sent to Governor Greg Abbott to be signed on 28 May, 2021. As of this date, 3 June, he has not yet signed it. He has promised to sign it, however since it was passed in the last days of the legislative session it automatically becomes law unless he vetoes it by 20 June.

The “cool, considerate men” of the Texas Republican, for example, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, opposed this bill. Patrick claimed he didn’t have the votes to pass HB 1927 in the Senate and wasn’t even going to try to get it passed until he pretty much was made clear to him he didn’t have the votes to get re-elected if he didn’t support the Bill.

Considering how loose Texas weapons laws already are CC is an all but symbolic gesture. That but is a friggin’ big but, it advances Constitutional purity, and it spells out that Texas is a pro-gun state, just as laws being passed there mark California as an anti-gun state. On the issue of gun control America is became split between Blue and Red, with purple being forced into one camp or the other. I much prefer the side Texas, if not many of her leaders, has chosen.

I am not so happy about the voting law that failed and the Governor is threatening to call an emergency session to pass. It really does strike me as being aimed at stopping people of the wrong party from voting than stopping fraudulent votes.

Combined with the lack of enthusiasm for gun rights shown by Texas’s political elite I am beginning to think we need new leaders who share the Texican wild streak, not feel that it is their job to get us under control.

Woke Bird Fanatics Aim to Endanger an Entire Species: Birds Named After Dead Racists

What a crock.

I don’t care what they do to the plants and critters I’m into. I’ll still call them what I’m used to. Taxonomic changes were annoying to begin with even before political correct McCarthyism got involved. I still call Corn Snake Elaphe and not Pantherophis.
