Texas Governor Greg Abbott is in the process of writing up an executive order for steps Texas businesses can take to re-open the economy.
“We will focus on protecting lives while restoring livelihoods. We can do both,” Abbott stated on Friday, April 10, 2020 during a press conference.
The governor said more details will be unveiled in the next week, but said he wants to roll out this plan strategically and safely to prevent the virus from spreading even further.
Abbott also shared the latest numbers for the Wuhan Virus pandemic. As of the afternoon of April 10, Texas has the following Wuhan Virus numbers:
- 116,000 total Texans tested
- 11,449 Texans tested positive
- 1,532 Texans hospitalized
- 221 Texans have died
“Every life lost is one too many,” Abbott said.
Unlike other state governments, Texas has taken a measured approach to the pandemic.
The virus is real but the impact it’s having is not as great as the media is making it out to be.
In sum, the response should not consist of trying to completely shut down the economy
Thankfully, Abbott has recognized that.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
