Texas Department of Public Safety body camera footage of a supposed “intimidation” incident involving Texas Gun Rights activist Chris McNutt exposes House Speaker Dennis Bonnen as a liar.
On April 20, 2019, Open Carry Texas activist CJ Grisham uploaded a video to his YouTube channel of the DPS body cam footage.
The exchange between McNutt and the DPS officers was peaceful to the say the least.
On March 27, 2019, McNutt was block-walking in Dennis Bonnen’s district, and when he got out of his car, he identified himself to the DPS officers.
The gun rights activist mainly spoke with DPS officer James Johnson throughout this exchange.
McNutt told the two DPS officers about the nature of his activism for Constitutional Carry. The Executive Director of Texas Gun Rights explained to the two officers what Texas Gun Rights does. When asked specifically about what he was doing in Dennis Bonnen’s neighborhood, McNutt said that he was just dropping a flyer that called on Bonnen to give Constitutional Carry a hearing.
When asked about Constitutional Carry, McNutt explained that Constitutional Carry is simply the concept that any law-abiding gun owner should be allowed to carry a firearm without having to obtain a permit. McNutt clarified that Constitutional Carry has been “the number one priority of the Republican Party of Texas platform for three sessions in a row.”
Officer Johnson said “I get what you’re saying” after McNutt broke down what Constitutional Carry entailed and was actually receptive to the idea.
Additionally, McNutt told the DPS officers that Texas Gun Rights tried reaching out to both House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and Governor Greg Abbott on multiple occasions with little success. McNutt also informed the officers about how he previously block-walked in the districts of State Representatives Dustin Burrows and Four Price with no problems.
This video confirms what BLP has covered over the past few weeks regarding the recent Fake News campaign against Texas Gun Rights.
Conservative activists told BLP that they believed McNutt’s account of the story and were skeptical of Bonnen’s claims.
Now with this video footage, Dennis Bonnen has been exposed.
When asked to comment about the legislature’s performance, McNutt said “Texas House leadership continues spitting in the face of pro-gun Texans” by killing Constitutional Carry.
The surprising performance of Beto O’Rourke in the last election cycle has gun rights activists worried. That cycle saw Texas gun owners lose a strong pro-gun champion in State Representative Matt Rinaldi.
Policies like Constitutional Carry are winning issues and one of the top priorities for the Texas Republican Party. Voters will only take so much inaction on the issue, so Republican leadership must take note.
Should leadership continue to kick the can down the road, Texas could likely see its traditionally pro-gun image deteriorate the same way states like Colorado and Florida have over the past decade.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
