    Texas Trouble-Help needed

    Campus carry bills on are on the verge of death in committees in Texas. Immediate calls are needed if you are a Texas resident. These started quickly and looked good with a lot of sponsors then apathy set in. The Brady bunch has descended on them and campus carry is nearly dead...the people to call are listed below...Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock, allegedly A rated) is probably the most important. The calls must be polite. Ask that the bills be allowed to go to the floor for a vote and not killed in committee.

    Calls Wed are a must...

    Thanks for your work. The phone numbers and names makes it easy for others to call about this important issue.
    Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:

    Made some calls. We'll see how it turns out and whom to vote for when reelection comes.

    Thanks for the information.

    Campus carry is pretty much dead. It would take a miracle.

    A major failure in Texas, totally no excuse for this. The Texas 2nd A community has had its lunch handed to them by the Brady Bunch and their crap. The sad part is that much of the gun owning community and a larger portion of the CHL community doesn't even know it. Apathy kills.

    Sorry to say, the 2A community just didn't fight hard enough for this one, we have some very lax gun laws as it is, so they just didn't see this as a needed bill and didn't put the heart into it. I'm not sorry to say, it wasn't high on my agenda either to tell you the truth. I'm gearing up for the other fights that will come to ensure we don't loose ground on our other laws that we have had passed.

    I agree before it's said, let a campus shooting happen here and they'll revisit it in a heartbeat.

    As Yogi said: "It ain't over until it's over."

    The Campus Carry Bill issue was heard and voted on it the Senate TODAY.

    Late May is "Do or die time" for Texas changes!!!


    Calendars Committe Chairman Brian McCall may greatly influence what happens - or not - with two major pieces of Texas Legislation this session. As this is written (late evening, May 19), it appears we need all Texans here to light 'em up in Austin before time runs out on the Parking Lot and Campus Carry bills.

    To stay as current as practical on these two very dynamic issues, PLEASE follow the applicable threads and CALLS FOR ACTION at "2009 Texas Legislative Session" at www.texaschlforum.com. More details (to be able to discuss intelligently in a timely manner) and Brian McCall's phone number(s) via link shown above.
