Special thanks also to House Speaker Tom Craddick and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for their leadership on these issues, which are so important to our Second Amendment rights!
Governor Rick Perry (R) has until June 19 to sign the measures, which he has not yet already signed.
Lordy, I miss George Bush. He governed this state 5 times better than Perry does.
Let's rally to the cause Texans!

Euch. i think the GOP is seeing the same. At least I hope so. There is a little political spanking beginning to happen. I am interested to see who the GOP actually endorses next. I certainly hope it's not Perry.
