Autopsy Report: Bonnen Shoots Down Constitutional Carry
« on: July 28, 2019, 08:38:51 PM »
Texas Scorecard By Cary Cheshire July 26, 2019

After misleading the public about the activities of an activist, Bonnen declared the measure dead in the Texas Legislature.

A top priority for the Republican Party of Texas and gun owners across the Lone Star State for over a decade, efforts to eliminate the requirement of a state gun permit were once again defeated in this past legislative session.

As he had in previous sessions, State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R–Bedford) led the effort to pass constitutional carry—filing House Bill 357, which would end the state’s requirement for Texans to receive permission from the government to exercise their right to keep and bear arms in public.

Unfortunately for Second Amendment advocates, no similar legislation was even filed in the Texas Senate, where Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has never been warm to the idea.

Stickland’s legislation was referred to the House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety—a committee House Speaker Dennis Bonnen appointed State Rep. Poncho Nevarez (D–Eagle Pass) to chair.

Nevarez was a known opponent of constitutional carry with a record of bristling with the issue’s supporters and fighting against the measure. Nonetheless, Nevarez promised to hold a hearing on the bill.

Nevarez then reneged on the deal.

The hell you say.   I can't believe it.   A Democrat..... reneged on a deal!   Nah!

When are the idiots in the GOP going to figure it out?   You can't trust any Democrat.  Ever.
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)
