Speaker Dennis Bonnen Hurls Insults At Rural Texan Gun Activists, Misleads On Constitutional Carry

Published

Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen is doubling down in his campaign against gun rights activists.

As if his defamatory remarks against Texas Gun Rights activist Chris McNutt weren’t enough, Bonnen is now making fun of the rural origins of some gun owners in Texas.

In an interview with Julie Fine of NBC 5, Bonnen said, “I never envisioned the level of insane, continuous, vicious attack from these people that live out in the woods, in a cave somewhere on an issue that is simply about letting a felon carry a gun.”

The Republican leader seems content not only with killing Constitutional Carry but also disparaging a large segment of Texas gun owners.

Lone Star Gun Rights commented on Twitter about Bonnen’s unhinged behavior:

Besides lying that CC allows criminals to carry, calls 2A supporters cave-dwelling hillbillies! This is what he thinks of delegates that voted to make CC the #1 lege priority! This is what he thinks of the grassroots! This is what he thinks of Texans!

Despite Bonnen’s claims that Constitutional Carry bill HB 357 allows for felons to carry, the bill still maintains the state’s prohibition of felons from carrying. It only just gets rid of the permitting requirement for law-abiding citizens.

From the looks of it, 2019 is another session where gun rights activists have failed to get a vote on Constitutional Carry.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
