Texas Gun Rights Declares War on House Speaker Dennis Bonnen

Published

on

In a Facebook post on April 25, 2019, Texas Gun Rights announced the launch of a massive canvassing effort in the district of House Speaker Dennis Bonnen.

BLP recently covered how Bonnen not only killed Constitutional Carry but even went to the media to smear Texas Gun Rights activist Chris McNutt for allegedly going to his house to “intimidate” him.

This assertion, however, was debunked after video cam footage of McNutt’s peaceful interaction with Texas Department of Public Safety officers went public.

This series of events prompted the Texas Grassroots Gun Rights Coalition to demand an apology from Bonnen for his behavior.

However, Texas gun owners aren’t just waiting idly for Bonnen to respond.

TXGR already dialing up the pressure on Bonnen with their latest canvassing effort.

The TXGR announcement on Facebook stated the following:

TXGR is calling on law-abiding, pro-gun Texans to peacefully pass out flyers in Speaker Bonnen’s district, requesting his constituents respectfully contact him — their elected official — and urge him to advance Constitutional Carry, House Bill 357!

On the landing page for this campaign, specific instructions are given for gun rights activists:

All you have to do is place these flyers at the doors. No door-knocking and no talking to people. If you happen to get greeted at a door, be sure to remain polite and do not engage in time-wasting debate. Simply explain what the flyer is if asked, and feel free to read the flyer to the constituent, and be on your way.

TXGR stressed that this campaign should be done during daylight hours and also recommended that activists wear professional attire while canvassing.

The pro-gun organization specifically advised activists to “avoid approaching the homes of any elected officials”, especially the home of Dennis Bonnen.

Although Constitutional Carry has been withdrawn for now, gun rights activists in Texas aren’t giving up.

This week has already witnessed Florida, ground zero for the national gun control debate, pass legislation in the Senate to allow teachers to carry firearms at school.

With the 2019 session of the Texas Legislature coming to an end on May 27, 2019, the clock is ticking for Second Amendment advocates in the Lone Star state.

However, it’s clear that they won’t go down without a fight.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
