I've always said that Rick Perry should keep his mouth shut and do what he does best -- stay out of the way and let the state continue to prosper. He pleasantly surprised me today by opening his mouth. He has a bad habit of opening his mouth at inopportune times and complicating what should be a simple issue. I've voted for him for years, but primarily because he lets the Legislature do it's thing (and it usually does the right thing) without him mucking it up.
One Riot, One Ranger. Long live the Republic of Texas.
JOIN THE NRA AND DO IT TODAY!!
Governor tells Tea Party gathering he's in favor of it. So long as the legislature agrees and acts, that'll be great ... depending on what they define "everywhere" to mean.
I'm feeling more than just a little state pride right now! Remember Goliad! Remember the Alamo!
Look im all about having guns but if a teacher is willing to have sex with our kids what makes you think diffent. We trust these people like we trust anyone else till we cant trust them no more. This aint what we need. Just my 2 cent.
I live directly across the street from an elementary school facing the school playground. All my kids went there, and my last just went off to middle school last year. I know most of the teachers and the administrators there. When I left the house today for lunch, six and seven year olds were out running, laughing, and didn't have a care in the world. It broke my heart to think that there are monsters out there that are capable of hurting these kids. Then I got angry. The recommendations that politicians are making can NOT stop this kind of attack, plain and simple. Look at the scenario: 4 foot chain-link fences separating the playground from the street 5 feet away, open gates every 30 feet or so. Metal detectors would not help - there are too many ways to get into the school, and how do you enclose a playground, build bulletproof walls around it? Banning the sale of ANY weapons would not help - these animals don't go announce their intentions or thier mental issues. Help for the mentally ill may not make a difference, either - all it takes is one to slip through the cracks. The only thing that would have an IMMEDIATE effect on the safety of those children is an armed, COMPETENT guardian overseeing them. And not just one, because the school has so much real estate. I would guess four to be effective. I just don't know how you could protect these kids otherwise...
I moved down here from the Peoples Republic of Maryland at the end of 2006 and let me tell you, It is wonderful here! I have travelled all over the country and it has always been, "nice place to visit but wouldn't want to live there." Came to Texas for a wedding and called my wife and told her " I could live here." Nine months later closed on the house.
I am so glad that Gov. Perry dropped out of the race when he did. I think he can do more for me and mine in Austin than he could in Washington.
This has been his position on CHL holders for years. I can't imagine ever hearing anything close to this from anyone in Annapolis

Perry has his moments as do most people. He has been pretty good for the state. I just wonder if he or the legislature set the fee on CHL. By the time you get done its right at 300 bucks.
Doing away with gun free zones is a great idea. I think the average of 3% carriers would be true in them as well. Those teachers inclined to carry would take advantage. I know two at my daughters high school that are permitted. I have invited one of them to my brothers range for some actual training instead of hole punching. This is a guy I would feel confident would TCB in an active shooter situation.
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds dearly the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
I like it, needs to spread, really doubt it will. Look what happened in an Oregon mall.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Glad I live in Texas too, should give me sometime to panic buy in January because I'm all locked up for Christmas.
I'll be testing this soon, I am scheduled to go to Austin tonight and tomorrow and want to take the kids to see the Capital.

Not that it's any surprise, but it's interesting to see the stark contrast between the responses to this here vs. the comments posted at the bottom of the article.
