    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.

    The dude might be pandering but he's pandering with common sense.

    Once again I'm forced to quote Jeff Cooper...

    "An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not over come by fleeing from it."
    If God carried a gun, it would be a 1911.

    Assiduus usus uni rei deditus et ingenium et artem saepe vincit - Cicero

    Fortitudine Vincimus - Ernest Shackelton :englishmo

    A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. - John Stuart Mill

    And for what it's worth I don't like the governor's hairstyle.

    HE WANTS TO GIVE EVERYONE A AGUN???????????????????

    I am against giving everyone a gun.

    Isn't that what he wants to do?

    Solve all our problems by giving everyone a gun?

    Maybe I should just RTFA.

    Why have a responsible, well armed citizenry to immediately respond to a crisis when you can just dial 911?:tongue3:

    We already tried that in the 19th century.

    He doesn't want to give everyone a gun. He wants the people who can legally carry guns in Texas now to be able to carry them into more places, such as church and school, where even legal CCW is now prohibited. I agree with him, although I suspect he's pandering more than anything else.

    The people he's talking about allowing to carry a gun in church or school are the people who've already purchased their guns, spent their own time and money on training, been fingerprinted, background-checked, and certified as Card-Carrying Good Guys (CCGG.) They' legally entitled to carry the same firearm as far as the church parking lot. They can carry it in McDonald's, they can carry it to work, they can carry it at the gas station, they can carry it to Wal-Mart. That hasn't caused any problems, but having them carry to school or church will? It defies reason.

    Yeah, Don, but I don't think problems will be solved by giving everyone a gun.

    (Still didn't RTFA).
