The gun rights drama in the Lone Star State has not ended yet.
BLP reported on House Speaker Dennis Bonnen killing Constitutional Carry legislation nearly two weeks ago on the grounds that a gun rights activist, Chris McNutt of Texas Gun Rights, allegedly went to go to his district to intimidate him into voting for Constitutional Carry.
However, BLP uncovered how many grassroots conservative activists had a hard time believing Bonnen’s story after an outburst Bonnen at a Texas GOP dinner.
Now, new evidence has surfaced going against Bonnen’s narrative.
While McNutt was doing his peaceful block walking campaign in Bonnen’s district, as he did in the neighborhoods of Representatives Four Price and Dustin Burrows, DPS was called in for security reasons.
One of the DPS officers confirmed McNutt’s side of the story, which Lone Star Gun Rights posted about on Twitter.
While our FOIA request was stonewalled (submitted through the Angleton office), @cjgrisham’s was not. The first piece of DPS evidence to prove @RepDennisBonnen is a liar comes out. More to come! #BackstabbingBonnen #BonnenLied #MakeTexasProGunAgain pic.twitter.com/h0ZsSSMQxd

CJ Grisham, the founder of Open Carry Texas, was able to successfully make a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that revealed the DPS officer’s side of the story.
The DPS officer in this case claimed to be stationed in front of Bonnen’s house of residence.
He “observed a Black Chevrolet Impala (rental) bearing TX LP#KFN3744 drive past Bonnen’s residence, and park at the cul-de-sac”.
The driver was Chris McNutt, and he approached CPL Gonzales and the DPS officer in question wanting to drop off a flyer at the Bonnen residence.
McNutt identified himself as the Executive Director of TXGR and handed the DPS officer a campaign flyer to drop off at Bonnen’s house. The officer obliged McNutt and also accepted a TXGR business card from McNutt.
Additionally, the officer confirmed that “McNutt did not make any threatening statements towards Representative Bonnen’s people or myself. I did not observe McNutt wearing any type of firearm at that time.”
Shortly after this peaceful exchange, McNutt drove off.
This ran counter to Bonnen’s account, who claimed that McNutt was armed and threatening representatives to pass Constitutional Carry.
The media ran with this narrative and as a result, was able to get Representative Jonathan Stickland to withdraw his Constitutional Carry bill.
This confirms the suspicion that Lone Star Gun Rights activist Derek Wills had about Bonnen’s ulterior motive of “using the act of placing flyers on people’s doors as an excuse to kill it [Constitutional Carry].”
Earlier this week, Stickland made a final attempt to add a Constitutional Carry amendment to another gun-related bill, but it was also shot down by Bonnen instead.
Texas now finds itself in an interesting crossroads.
America is polarized on the gun issue. While blue states have passed significant gun control since the 2018 Parkland shooting, certain states like Oklahoma and Kentucky have embraced Constitutional Carry. However, Texas continues to lag behind on the issue.
The 2019 session of the Texas State Legislature appears to be another disappointing year for gun rights activist in the state.
Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate
At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country
After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.
“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.
This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.
Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:
He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.
We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.
In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:
Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’
In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”
Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.
When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
