'Campus Carry' Bill Passes Texas Senate

 
Posted Thursday, March 19th 2015 @ 1pm

 The Texas Senate today approved and sent to the house a bill allowing concealed handguns to be carried on college campuses, a key goal of Republicans in the current session and one that has eluded Second Amendment advocates for the past two sessions, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

  The vote, 20-11, was straight down party lines, with all Republicans voting yes, and all Democrats voting no.

  The bill would allow people who already have concealed handgun licenses to carry concealed weapons on campus and into campus buildings, including dormitories.

  Supporters said the measure will increase the safety of campuses and will help protect college employees when they are traveling to and from the campus.  Supporters also mocked opponents for bringing up the same arguments which were raised against Concealed Carry twenty years ago, pointing out that the 'gunfights over parking places' and higher random use of firearms which was widely predicted at the time has not materialized.

  Opponents said the environment on college campuses, with raging hormones, close quarters, and alcohol, is not a good environment to introduced weapons.

  The campus carry bill that passed today is somewhat watered down.  Since only people who have CHL's can carry handguns on college campuses, that means the bulk of the students, who are under 21, will not be allowed to carry weapons.

  It also only covers public universities, leaving private colleges to make their own decisions about handguns.

  It also does not allow 'open carry' of firearms and it only covers handguns, not rifles.'

  The bill now goes to the Texas House.

ahhh the new conservative math....if you can't pay your bills, cut your income...

Largest Tax Cut in Texas History Advances in Legislature

 
Posted Wednesday, March 18th 2015 @ 5pm

  Lawmakers on the State Senate Finance Committee turned aside worries about the state's debt and about allegedly dwindling state services, and voted to approve and send to the full Senate tax cut packages totaling $4 billion, including a large cut in property taxes, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

  Major tax cuts is one of Gov. Abbott's 'emergency' measures, meaning it will get fast track status in the Legislature.

  The centerpiece of the bill is an increase in the state homestead exemption, the decrease in the value of your home that you don't have to pay property taxes on.  That is currently $15,000, meaning if you live in a home valued at $200,000, you only have to pay property tax on $185,000 of that.

  The proposal would fix the homestead exemption to the rising value of property, setting it at 25% of the average value of a home in Texas.  That would have the immediate impact of raising the homestead exemption to more than $33,000, saving the average homeowner more than $225 per year in taxes.

  But there is opposition to the proposal from conservatives and liberals.  Conservatives like State Rep. Lyle Larson (R-San Antonio), say the state's surplus should go to pay down the state's ballooning debt.

  Liberals like State Sen. John Whitmire (D-Houston) say the surplus should go to education and other state programs.

  "I say we return the surplus to the taxpayer in the form of better services," he said.

  The measure now goes to the full Senate, where it is expected to pass.  If approved, it would be the largest tax cut in Texas history.

The right brainwashes their children to want to "carry", the cops shoot'em, so the right wants more guns.

Works for me.

Comment by Ioruach on December 15, 2014 at 7:33pm

Well, if you're going to carry a gun, certainly it should be done openly. How else would we know who has 'em and who doesn't? Max Brand, where are you?

Who knows Ramon; I can't stand listening to them.  I reckon I'll just have to wait and find out who's who LOL...

Well, It's crunch time. The Dems say they have it in the bag; the Pubs say the same. The Libs control the runoff likely to happen here in Georgia for at least one, and perhaps two races.

What are you hearing in the other states?

they were having early voting when i was by the library today. i stopped by the table on the bank lawn next door where the democratic party was set up. while i was talking with someone, a man in a nice silver pickup stopped and the window came down so he could yell "wendy davis is a whore!"  i really want to thank some folks for keeping the political dialogue  classy.

Cory Gardner Denies The Existence Of A Bill He’s Cosponsoring

by Wochit 0:53 mins

Colorado Republican Representative Cory Gardner is still taking heat Monday for suggesting in a debate over the weekend that a bill he cosponsored didn’t exist. Gardner has taken flak in his tight Senate race against incumbent Democrat Mark Udall for recanting his support for statewide “personhood” initiatives — for which he campaigned even at his church — but continuing to support a bill at the federal level that would declare human life as beginning at conception. Udall and his supporters have hammered Gardner for co-sponsoring HR 1091, the Life At Conception Act, while claiming to have changed his mind about nearly identical legislation at the state level. When asked about this apparent contradiction by Denver’s Fox 31 political reporter Eli Stokols, Gardner simply denied the bill exists.

they use it for SPOKESMAN


WHY?

Answer:

because they can't spell spokesman
