Texas conservative activist Julie White McCarty provided two radical solutions for the recent drama concerning the embattled State Representative Poncho Nevarez.
BLP reported that Nevarez was caught on Thursday, November 16, 2019 for cocaine possession.
Nevarez, who chaired the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee, was one of the figures responsible for killing Constitutional Carry legislation during the 2019 legislative session.
In light of this drama, McCarty noted that “Three State Reps (and many others) asked Bonnen to remove him [Nevarez] as Chair.”
She even pointed out that the committee that Nevarez presides over “is the one that includes drug trafficking. Bonnen replied that he does not have the power to replace committee chairs, that it has to be done by the Reps during session.”
The grassroots conservative activist believes there “are 2 responses here, both of which are correct.”
She offered the following two solutions:
- Fine. Abbott should call a special session, and the House can replace Bonnen and Poncho at the same time.
- Call out Bonnen for being a liar and prove to the world that he is one.
McCarty personally preferred the first option.
There was a sense of urgency behind her call to action, in which she stated, “Governor Abbott…the Texas House is a mess, Republicans look weaker and more pathetic than ever before, it gets worse every day, and we have an election looming where we could lose power. We must ignite the base. What is your plan???”
McCarty concluded, “Call a Special.”
Despite the disappointing 2019 legislative session, conservative activists received a consolation prize when House Speaker Dennis Bonnen announced that he would not be running for re-election in 2020.
Nevertheless, the fight is far from over.
Conservative activists will have to step their game up during the 2020 elections and ensure they get a solid a Republican majority that is actually filled with elected officials who are willing to take up conservative policy items.
If not, Texas will likely descend into becoming a blue state.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
