Establishment Senator in Texas Guts Pro-Gun Bill

Published

on

Lone Star Gun Rights reports that an establishment Republican in the Texas Senate is gutting a pro-gun bill.

Earlier in May, the Texas House passed HB 1177, a bill that allows the carry of a handgun without a license during a disaster declaration.

In an email to its members, LSGR Senior Editor Derek Wills chimed in on this bill:

It was crumbs of freedom being returned to us, but certain Senators felt that those crumbs were too much.

Senator Joan Huffman, whose Senate District overlaps with Constitutional Cary-killer Dennis Bonnen’s district, amended the bill to just allow for 48 hours of carry without a license. According to Wills, Huffman “decided that 168 hours was too long for someone evacuating a disaster area to carry without the State-issued permission slip.”

Wills reveals that it is too late to have Huffman’s amendment reversed. If passed, Wills contends that this bill “will still be a tiny crumb returned to us, but take that for what it is.”

2019 has been a disappointing year for Second Amendment supporters in Texas. With House Speaker Dennis Bonnen killing Constitutional Carry, 2021 will be the earliest that this law could be passed.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
