    "One of the reasons lawmakers said they carry is it’s Texas tradition, but the main reason most lawmakers cited is safety"

    Even our politicians know what real life is about..

    At least they don't feel that they are better than the rest of us in that regard.

    Montana has a few politicians over the years that fessed up to CWP. But only a few.

    Stupid journalists. This is only a "special report" after it was reported that the governor of Texas Rick Perry shot a coyote that attacked his dog while he was jogging.

    The "shocked" media responds, "You had a gun on you?"

    Of course the governor carries, you dolts.

    I'll bet if they did that "special report" on ANY state's elected representatives, they'd find many (if not most) carry for protection.

    I would think if you look at their voting records, it'd give you a good indication of who carries, and who doesn't.

    This qualifies as news?

    Excuse me while I yawn a lot.

    Absolutely untrue. Many, many of these hypocrites vote to grab your guns while ensuring they and their family have the option of self-defense. Look at all these "may issue" states. The politicians are basically saying with "may issue" that some people are worthy of being able to protect themselves (politicians like themselves, celebrities, and the wealthy) while the rest of us disposable plebes can go without protection.


    Consider that loud-mouthed witch Rosie O'Donnell. She fought against guns, got WalMart to stop selling them, and is protected by GUN-CARRYING body guards.

    There was another case in Washington, DC about 8 years ago regarding a columnist from the Washington Post who was a flaming Leftist and would write quarterly columns about how evil guns were and how they needed even more restrictions on them. When some "yoots" broke into his backyard and got into his pool, he came out with his pistol and shot at them. I am too lazy to do the Google-fu for the citation.

    Heck if you look at their voting records, you will know why as a politician they want to carry. Most have pissed someone off or done some back room deal, they should be carrying, then again, lots should get out of politics period.


    Poli, meaning many or multiple
    Tics, meaning a blood sucking parasite.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
