Texas soon to be 45th Open Carry State

Texas Gov Greg Abbott

By Staff Writer

Governor Greg Abbott(R) of Texas will make his state the 45th to have open carry. This is a major victory for our nation and the 2nd Amendment. Many in the Texas have worked hard to make this a reality and the hard work has finally paid off. One such group Texas Open Carry has been working hard to bring this the floor of the Texas lawmakers.  Texas has always been an open carry state for long guns/rifles, but not the handgun.
Governor Abbott was elected and faced fierce opposition by numerous and even one crazy questionable candidate. Even with that said, one of his first acts is to enforce the 2nd Amendment.  Least he stuck to his platform and Republicans can be proud of this.
Governor Greg Abbott (R) handed Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America another loss on February 17 when he announced that he will indeed sign open carry into law, thereby “[making] Texas the 45th state to allow Open Carry.” Abbott made these comments during his 2015 State of the State Address.
Let me briefly follow-up on a word I mentioned a moment ago–liberty. In a single word, it encapsulates what the country stands for, what Texas symbolizes. I will expand liberty in Texas by singing a law that makes Texas the 45th state to allow Open Carry.

There has been many negative Public Service Announcements (PSA) from various organizations trying to block anything and everything dealing with our fundamental rights to bear arms.  Here is just one such lunatic PSA by a women in California encouraging kids to “steal their parents guns”.

Anti-Gun PSA Gets Ripped Apart By Fox News' Ammosexuals

An anti-gun ad shows a teenager bringing his parent's gun to school to keep his house free of dangerous weapons. The Fox News brigade goes bananas.
(CrooksandLiars) Naturally, the 2nd Amendment patriots at Fox News misunderstand the aims of a public service announcement. When a teenager finds a gun (it didn't specify if it was loaded or not), he brings it to school and hands it to an adult teacher. He said,

"Can you take this away? I don't feel safe with a gun around my house."

Katherine Timpf was on to explain how insane this ad is. Because she trusts parents to teach their kid about gun safety, this ad is all wrong.

Perhaps bringing the gun to school was a poor idea, but where else can a child find a responsible adult if his family is laden with idiots who keep firearms easily accessible by anyone? And, Ms. Ammosexual, how many damned accidental deaths does one country need before people are held accountable for the mass proliferation and acquisition of these sorts of lethal weapons? Did the psa explain that maybe the kid's mom is unwilling to teach him or unwilling to hide the weapon from a younger sibling? No, so Fox News and Ms. National Review are appalled at the content of the ad, completely missing the point.

Guns should NEVER be accessed readily by any minor, and more often than not, anyone, period. Guns ABSOLUTELY make the house much more dangerous for the whole family.

Guns in the home greatly increase the risk of youth suicides. That is why the American Academy of Pediatrics has long urged parents to remove guns from their homes.

The person who made the ad said that guns should not be accessible by children.
We can't say the truth, as Fox News is bought and paid for by 2nd Amendment enthusiasts who have worked tirelessly to change the meaning of that amendment. In fact, they recommend prosecution if that ad leads to one person bringing a gun to school, also missing the point that weapons don't make a home safer.
Remember, pre-1982, before Orrin Hatch and the NRA-ILA decided to re-interpret the amendment to mean exclusively, you have a right to bear arms (and leave off "to form a militia"). It was a turning point in our country, and Congress has worked harder on the mass proliferation of guns than on any other matter.

The kid may face some discipline from the school, but let's focus on what's the point of this ad: guns should NEVER be within the reach of a minor. This is the problem, not the kid trying to rid his house of dangerous, lethal weaponry.
