On May 3, 2019, Texas Gun Rights posted an announcement on Facebook demanding an apology from House Speaker Dennis Bonnen.
Texas Gun Rights and the National Association for Gun Rights legal counsel David Warrington issued a letter demanding that Bonnen apologize for his defamatory remarks against Chris McNutt.
In the statement, Warrington said “On behalf of our client, Mr. Chris McNutt, I write to demand that you retract the false and defamatory statements you made about Mr. McNutt during your April 9, 2019 appearance on The Chad Hasty Show.”
Warrington went into further details:
On the show you stated that Mr. McNutt visited Lubbock Representative Dustin Burrows’ district office and “flashed his gun in his district office to the staff.” You further stated that Mr. McNutt’s actions were done to “intimidate and threaten.”
As reported by BLP, Bonnen claimed that Chris McNutt went to his district to intimidate him. Bonnen even claimed that McNutt flashed a firearm when peacefully block-walking in Burrows and Bonnen’s district.
Warrington countered these claims however:
To be clear, at no time during his visit to Representative Burrow’s district office did Mr. McNutt flash a gun. In fact, Mr. McNutt was unarmed when he visited Representative Burrow’s office.
The legal counsel also declared that these false statements were damaging:
Your false accusation that Mr. McNutt flashed a gun is false and injurious to Mr. McNutt’s personal and professional reputation and caused him great mental anguish. That this false allegation was made by the Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives is particularly injurious.
Warrington maintained a firm position on what Bonnen must do to rectify the situation:
On Mr. McNutt’s behalf, we demand that you issue a public apology to him and publicly retract your accusation that Mr. McNutt “flashed a gun” to “intimidate and threaten” the staff at Representative Burrow’s district office.
In the case that Bonnen does not apologize, Warrington threatened legal action:
If you take this action by 5 p.m. this Monday, May 6, 2019, Mr. McNutt will accept your apology and correction of the public record and this matter will be at an end. If you do not, Mr. McNutt may take all appropriate legal action to restore Mr. McNutt’s reputation and hold you accountable for these defamatory statements.
For that past month, Texas Gun Rights has been embroiled in a vicious feud with House Speaker Bonnen over his inaction on Constitutional Carry.
Bonnen ended up killing Constitutional Carry, but he has doubled down in his barrage against gun rights activists.
He even claims that the Constitutional Carry legislation that Texas Gun Rights is pushing for will allow felons to carry, despite the fact that the current Constitutional Carry bill comports with Texas law by maintaining its prohibition against felons from carrying.
It looks like this saga won’t be coming to an end soon.

POLL: Hispanics Support Big Government Across The Board
Even Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of the Average Republican
Pew Research released some interesting statistics highlighting Latino voters’ views on national political problems based on a survey they conducted on Latino adults this past December.
Record numbers of Latinos — 32 million — will be voting in the 2020 general election. This exceeds the number of eligible black voters for the first time in history.
According to the results, the majority of Hispanic voters favor more government involvement on issues ranging from minimum wage to gun control.
62 percent of registered voters identify or lean toward the Democrat Party, whereas 34 percent connect with or lean in the direction of the Republican Party.
Several key findings stood out:
Most Hispanic voters (71%) say the government should do more to solve problems, while 27% say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.
The findings by Jens Manuel Krogstad, Mark Hugo Lopez and Abby Budiman revealed that 82 percent of Hispanics who identify with or lean Democrat “say the government should do more to solve problems, compared with 51% of those who affiliate with or lean toward the GOP.”
As far as minimum wage is concerned, the three authors found some interesting results
On the minimum wage, a large majority of Hispanic voters (79%) say they favor raising it to $15 an hour, including more than half (56%) who say they strongly favor this change. Majorities in both parties favor raising the minimum wage, though Hispanic Democrats are much more likely than Hispanic Republicans to do so (88% vs. 62%, respectively).
The same Hispanic support for big government held true for healthcare which the authors noted below:
Hispanic voters generally believe the U.S. government should play a role in providing health care to Americans. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, including 38% who favor a national health insurance system and 32% who prefer a mix of private and government health care coverage. Around a quarter (28%) say it is not the government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, though most in this group say they prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.
When broken down across partisan lines, there were some key differences between Hispanics Democrats and Hispanic Republicans:
Hispanic Democrats and Republicans have different views on the role government should play in providing health coverage. About eight-in-ten Hispanic Democratic voters (84%) say it is the government’s responsibility to ensure Americans have health care, with 49% supporting a national health insurance system. Meanwhile, about half (51%) of Hispanic Republican voters say it is not the government’s responsibility to ensure universal coverage, though most in this group prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.
Interestingly, Hispanic Republicans were considerably to the Left of the average Republican voter on healthcare. 24 percent of Republican voters believe that the government should be responsible for guaranteeing healthcare coverage.
For gun control, there was also a noticeable Hispanic majority in favor of stricter gun laws:
“Around seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) say gun laws should be stricter than they are today, while 24% say current gun laws are about right. Only 7% say gun laws should be less strict. The survey was conducted several months after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, involving a suspect who said he targeted Mexicans.”
Similarly, there was a sharp partisan gap on gun control among Hispanics:
Among Hispanic Democratic voters, 80% say gun laws should be stricter. Hispanic Republican voters are more evenly divided, with 44% saying gun laws should be stricter and 42% saying gun laws are about right.
In the Republican case, Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of Republican voters on gun control. Only 27 percent of Republican voters want stricter gun laws.
All things considered, continued mass migration will not only ensure eventual Democrat Party domination in the near future, but also a more leftist Republican opposition that now has a big government faction within its ranks.
