This has a couple of potential outcomes:

(1) It gets soundly defeated and Northeast Texas becomes a laughing stock for electing Lavender.

(2) It passes and Texas becomes a laughing stock for passing it.

So if it does pass will any of you:
1. Carry open
2. Carry concealed
3. Protest by not carrying at all beacause George was involved

Turn around - and bend over.

I will continue to carry all the time, however, I am sure I will carry openly from time to time. It will depend on what feels right at the time.

Guns don't make you a man. Being mature enough to safely and responsibly carry one does give a indication of being a man.

"Feels right"?

How does a person feel when he/she needs to open carry?

Don't make a big deal out of how it's worded. I mean when it's comfortable for me.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill into law Thursday, making the Colt single-action army revolver the official sidearm of the Grand Canyon State.

This follows the rattlesnake as the official state reptile, and the bola tie as the official state neckwear.

The bola tie is also the official state neckwear of Texas, but the horned toad reigns in the Lone Star State as official state reptile.

We actually pay these people to represent us?

Ugh!

Evidently you are new to Texas or to young to understand Texas and Texans. There are some things that are nearly sacred in Texas. Amadillo`s, horned toads, bola ties, any kind of gun, and high school football. And if you really want to start something, just knock off a cowboy`s hat. GW

Nothing against a single action Colt, but I prefer a Ruger Blackhawk. You can load the shells heavier. GW

I will continue to carry concealed if this passes, and encourage my students to do so as well.

Why not the Ruger Blackhawk Bisley?

Then you can get that 7/1/2 inch barrel and be a real stud.

I think the same for me too! No big gun for me, Maurice will just have to call me stubby!

The Bisley is a beautiful gun, but I prefer the Blackhawk. Guess it is just what I am used to.
