House Speaker Dennis Bonnen Sneaks Gun Control into the Texas State Budget

Published

on

Gun control has been snuck into the Texas state budget.

According to a new campaign on Texas Gun Right’s website, “Gun control funding was added to the state budget and is on its way to the Governor’s desk for his signature.”

Specifically, gun control funding was added to promote a firearms storage program.

TXGR called on its members to demand that Governor Greg Abbott use his line-item veto to take down this specific gun control program.

The gun rights group highlighted that “Firearms safety is of the utmost importance.”

However, in TXGR’s view, the gun control lobby has gone too far by pushing this backdoor gun control provision “under the guise of firearms “safety.”

Chris McNutt, Executive Director of TXGR, argues that House Speaker Dennis Bonnen got anti-gun Democrat votes by slipping a “$1 million spending spree for the promotion of “safe” gun storage in the states’ massive 950 page budget bill (HB 1).”

TXGR pointed out that research from Dr. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center demonstrates that firearm storage mandates “effectively disarm citizens in a time of urgency.”

In his study in the Journal of Law and Economics, Lott shows that there were “300 more total murders and 4,000 more rapes occurring each year in the states that mandated firearms storage.”

2019 has been a disappointing year for Second Amendment activists in the Lone Star State. Now they must fend off background gun control schemes as the session comes to a close. After that, they must prepare for the 2020 elections and the next legislative session in 2021.

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.
