Governor Good Hair Says Guns are Good in Church and School
I hate to find myself agreeing with this sleaze ball.
Pandering to a national audience in a bid for the VP nomination?

I am not sure if arming everyone is the answer. However, if there were several people in the college campus with guns, I don't think there would have been as many dead. I could be wrong though.
The problem is that most people won’t buy into this and will prefer the illusion of safety that a notional “gun free” zone provides over the concrete safety that the means to fight back provides.

Say what you will, the man has great hair. While I think everyone armed in a state with pretty lax laws concerning concealed carry and icehouses everywhere has the potential to be a problem, it does make for a far more polite society. I see LEO's being against this as well as civil groups looking to limit the number of firearms. I wonder how this will help GGH to cement his legacy and get a nod to join the ticket.

The CHL doesn't require one to be a judge or DA to carry in TX. It also doesn't require one to have a verifiable business need to carry one either. So comparatively speaking that is fairly lax.
Also, I was talking about LEOs not favoring this expansion of the law.
btw, Perry beats Edwards in a walk. The Texan entrant beats the Carolinas most of the time in any pageant.

I think having everyone armed may cause more deaths long term. If you have a load of unstable paranoid people believing they may be shot at any moment giving them all guns doesnt make for good times. This isnt a dig at anyone, after a massacre you'd be understandably high strung.

To obtain a concealed carry license in TX, you are required to submit to an FBI background check, give a list of every arrest you have ever had, and every place you have lived over the last 10 years (could be 5 I don't recall). You also must sit through a 10 hour class, and pass a shooting test.
