Yeah, Because You Can Always Trust Republicans With Guns

April 30, 2013 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

What could possibly go wrong?

Sen. Glenn Hegar said it is unfair for students with concealed handgun licenses to be prohibited from keeping a firearm in their cars while they go into class.

That’s why Hegar, R-Katy, proposed SB 1907, which passed out of the Senate on Tuesday and into the House for further debate. But there’s a caveat: Campus carry cannot be attached as an amendment.

Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, asked Hegar for his assurance that an amendment to allow students to bring firearms into college buildings would not be smuggled into the final bill.

First off, I would not trust Glen Hegat as far as I can throw him.  Hegar is so crooked that he has to screw on his socks in the morning.  I can almost promise you that once this gets to the floor, Hegar’s recall will need an overhaul and he’ll work himself into a verbal lather and holler that it’s unfair, unfair I tell you, that students have to keep their guns in their cars where people can steal them.  What English 305 really needs is a couple of hidden handguns to keep the nerds from breaking the voting curve.

You can dance this all over the floor but it’s still a bad idea.

You’ll notice that Hegar cannot give one example where a gun in a school  parking lot has done something good.  I can promise you that all you’re doing is arming drug dealers in parking lots.

Texas has 99 problems but getting more guns in the hands of kids ain’t one of them.

Thanks to Raphael for the heads up.

    You could have fooled me. I thought he was a used car salesman.

  4. I have a drivers license, and it is unfair that I cannot drive into locked, gated communities. Or places with roads that say Private Property, Keep Out. I have a sales tax license and it is unfair that I cannot sell anything I want, such as restricted substances. I have a dog license and it is unfair that my dog can’t go anywhere, or do anything she wants. Because right now, she really wants to take a crap in Glenn Hegar’s front yard.

  5. Thanks for the HT, JJ.

    I peruse the DMN website daily since I do live up here in the north of Dallas (Frisco) area. I can’t read all of the content since I don’t subscribe to the DMN but I often read the public content, i.e. blogs and often find these “nuggets”.

    The crazy is all loose down there in Austin! Oh how I wish Molly Ivins was around to see these Teabaggers in action in the Lege!

  6. I’m a college teacher and the LAST thing I want in my classroom is a gun. Gives me the absolute shivers to even think about it!
    That Hegar critter reminds me of Eddie Haskell!

    Why can’t I just carry one openly to class. think of the leverage that would give me when trying to get my point across to instructors and students.

    The idea of carrying guns on any school ground is so wrong that it should be obvious. These so-called “Christians” are so in love with guns that we should really call them “Gunions”.

  12. Just out of curiosity, does the law allow people to carry guns into Senator Hegar’s workplace? If not, why not?

  13. Thanks, everybody, especially Rick and LynnN. I just don’t know how to abolish stupidity, and it seems like it’s growing.

  14. OldMayfly says:

    Good question, LynnN–I can imagine his staffer saying, “Senator Hegar, a few of your constituents are here to see you, and they are all packing heat.”

  15. “So what happened here?”
    “Well, some guy walked in and said this was a robbery. Next thing we knew, everyone in the cafeteria started pulling out weapons, and there was a massive firefight.”
    “We counted 80 dead and injured, but what happened to the robber?”
    “Well, he wasn’t carrying a weapon, so no one shot him and he walked out after the shooting died down.”

    All good comments…I don’t understand why Repugs and Tea Baggers want to arm students. I am old enough to remember Kent State, when the students didn’t have guns and, if they had, it would have been a warzone! As my friend Cookie always says “If you understood their stupidity, you would be stupid too.”

  17. So…they can leave their guns in their cars while they’re in class? So they can be stolen? I mean…seriously…what would a person breaking into a car to look for goodies want more than a gun, huh?

    When you are dead, you don’t know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others. It is the same for stupid.
