BETRAYAL: Texas Governor Flirts with Regulating Private Gun Sales

Published

on

The AP reported last Thursday that Texas Governor Greg Abbott voiced concerns about private firearms sales but made no commitment to crack down on them or enact control measures following a meeting on ways to prevent future mass shootings such as the recent El Paso massacre.

Abbott stated that Texas would closely examine gun laws and other safety measures before the Texas State Legislature convenes in 2021.

Monitoring private gun sales were among the list of ideas that Abbott floated after coming out of a closed-door meeting about the El Paso tragedy with elected officials, police, and representatives from Big Tech companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Abbott stated, “Right now there is nothing in law that would prevent one stranger from selling a gun to a terrorist, and obviously that’s a danger that needs to be looked into.”

The Texas Governor provided no details about how Texas would keep tabs on private gun sales but did voice concerns about how some firearms could wind up in the wrong hands.

Big Tech executives were invited to speak with the Governor after he called for a crackdown on websites that violent extremists use to conduct their operations.

Executives from Google, Facebook and Twitter left the meeting before reporters were let back into the room. They were invited by Abbott after he called for a crackdown on internet sites used by violent extremists. This was spurred by the reports of the El Paso murderer posting a deranged political memo right before carrying out this atrocity.

According to Abbot, the companies offered several training programs for both users and law enforcement to detect individuals who may pose threats and prevent potential attacks.

Gun Owners of America’s Texas chapter organized a rally outside the Capitol before Abbott’s meeting to protest the “red flag” gun confiscation laws being floated after the El Paso shooting. The group also criticized any efforts to monitor social media that might have come about from these discussions.

The fact that a supposedly conservative governor such as Abbot is entertaining the idea of gun control should concern gun activists in the Lone Star State.

Groups like GOA will  have to play a crucial role during the 2021 legislative session to prevent Abbott and his colleagues from potential selling out on the issue of gun control.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
