The only politician out there who is smart enough to come up with the correct response to the Giffords thing.
Never been a believer in advertizing that I’m CCW. That could give a bad guy an advantage he might not otherwise have. ............Just my 2 cent.
Democrats are violent Statist thugs, and thugettes.
Gotta agree with that. So, I guess you aren’t gonna be ordering one of those “Hey Everybody! I’m Carrying A Weapon” T-shirts then. Better to keep ‘em guessin’. :>}
“guess you arent gonna be ordering one of those Hey Everybody! Im Carrying A Weapon T-shirts then.”
Nope, never understood the “protected by Smith and Wesson” yard signs and bumper stickers.

Or it might make him decide to go somewhere else to find a victim. There’s a good argument to be made either way.
Personally, I’d rather avoid the gunfight by openly carrying.
Hopefully with Dewhurst out of the way in Texas, open carry, or constitutional carry can become law, instead of being blocked in the State Senate.
Are the liberals there shooting republicans, too? Or just other ‘rats?
I don’t go any bigger than a my trusty old J-frame or a Sig P290 for concealed carry. But, when it get really hot outside, the Beretta Bobcat in 22 is my last resort.
LOL! “Never mind the dog. Beware of owner.” signs always crack me up too.

LOL! A lot of these public servants have figured out the real reason for the Second Amendment and are scared to death.
Did you ever catch the video of her at the range outside Las Vegas popping a few rounds? She starts to turn to the left and mx. mark kelley-giffords rushes over to “disarm” her before she pans those in the “audience”. She no longer has the mental capacity to posses so why no outcry? (Rhetorical of course.)
BUMP! They could do us a favor and disarm themselves, leave the ill-gotten $$$ behind, leave politics and live happy ever after in a "gun free" zone. /sarc
That editorial cartoon is funny. I had to cut it out when I first saw it and paste it on the wall of my office.
For those who might not know, this is a typically safe Republican seat and has a number of well-known candidates, several of whom chickened out from the tougher US Senate race.
Zaun has run unsuccessfully before, but is very popular and is actually a conservative. Mike Huckabee has endorsed one of his opponents.
No. I didn't know about it.
Thanks for the heads-up.
I'll see if I can find it.
Sorry I don’t have the link any longer but I’m sure it’s available out here in the ether.
