But on the other hand, lawmakers are people too and have families and as such, cannot be put under siege by the masses

This was not that AT ALL. Bonnen was never going to allow the bill to go ahead anyway, and thinks he looks righteous in going after 2A supporters, who he thinks are 'nuts'. Bonnen hates 2A supporters. Just look at how he describes Chris:

Bonnen said McNutt's decision to show up at his house unannounced was a demonstration of “insanity” and called him an "overzealous advocate for criminals to get a gun."
This sounds more like New Yorker Bill De Blasio than a TX Republican. Bonnen was never going to allow him into his office to speak about this. Like Chris said:

"If politicians like Speaker Dennis Bonnen think they can show up at the doorsteps of Second Amendment supporters and make promises to earn votes in the election season, they shouldn't be surprised when we show up in their neighborhoods to insist they simply keep their promises in the legislative session,"
Unfortunately, this is "New Texas", and it's going to get worse. And it's NOT Californians doing it, it's Texas' own children.

Yep. My wife read some analysis that indicated in the election of Cruz-Beto, more California transplants voted for Cruz than for Beto. When I see long-time Texans *still* wearing "Beto for Texas" T-shirts, I really wonder what is going in the state.

All of those swanky new highrise condos going up in downtown Austin are being built for the Globalist lobbyists ....
