It may have been posted here before, but I am not sure. I have seen the video of her on youtube before. I can't access youtube at work, but when I get home I will look if noone has found it for you before then.

If you are talking about the incident that I think you are…
Luby’s in Killeen, TX
Oct. 16, 1991
You can Google Suzanna and find all sorts of information including a video of her appearance in front of the Texas legislature when she was pushing for the change in laws.

Thanks guys. About once a year someone will some how in my life bring up that incident and reopen up the memories. I've seen crap world wide and that is one that still gets to me, a memory I'd as soon forever forget.

I hear ya about stirring up unpleasant memories. We were stationed at Ft. Hood and ate at that very Luby's all the time. My family and I ate there for lunch less than a week before the shooting occurred. Talk about hitting close to home.

my CHL/SD instructor was a criminologist on duty when that happened
in our classes we got to watch his video of the crime scene (he was called to help process/document it) and the video was horrible
any anti-SD/anti-CCW people should get to see this video
my instructor told us step-by-step what that piece of garbage did, walking around the place shooting people in the head at point blank range as the were cowering under tables, etc
anyone with a pistol could have stopped him

Sen Schumer was very disrespectful in his body language towards Dr Hupp when she was speaking.

I don't think anyone in Texas or for that matter the US will ever forget that day. It very well could be the moment CC turned the corner and became a reality. Let us never forget the price that was paid.

I remember that day well; My Grandad and I were driving through Killeen that day on our way back from Odessa, where he had purchased some equipment for one of his drilling rigs. We heard all about it on WOAI radio and stopped by the scene to say a prayer for the victims.
Several years later I met Suzanna Hupp, who by then was representative Hupp, and I offered my condolences; she was very gracious with her time, and many of us in Texas credit her and Jerry Patterson as the major forces behind the drive for concealed carry here in the state of Texas. The only thing that held them up was the old bar hag, Ann Richards. We promptly voted her into the unemployment line the next year.
If she ever decides to run for national office, I would vote for her in a heartbeat.
