You’ve just gotta love Texas. At least you do if you’re not a liberal. They just have that certain, in-your-face way of doing things. It warms my hard, cold, Curmudgeon heart. Their elected officials have an oversized ration of testosterone too. Take Governor Greg Abbott for example and his response to President Obama’s threat to come back this week and issue more executive decrees on gun rights.
Good job Governor Abbott.
The Texas new “open carry” law went into effect with the New Year and gun confiscators are having a fit. That warms my heart too.
I’m not a fan of open carry. I don’t want a bad guy to know I’m armed; I like the idea of a surprised look on his face if he looks down the two-foot diameter of the barrel of my Glock.
That said, I have no problem with open carry. Here in Arizona we’ve had open carry for decades with no issues and last year our legislature passed concealed carry without a requirement for a permit. Again, no problems. We’ve also been able carry in bars. No problems.
At every increment of freedom here in Arizona the gun grabbers were in high whine about the certain increase in shooting victims. It’s never happened, an armed society is a polite society. Of course Obama and his supporters don’t want a polite society.
