Belligerent Open Carry Group Confronts And Harasses Texas State Lawmakers

open carry kroger

The Texas House approved new rules to add panic buttons in House offices on Wednesday after a confrontational open carry group harassed state lawmakers on Tuesday. On the opening day of the 2015 legislative session, over a dozen activists from Open Carry Tarrant County visited the Capitol to try to persuade legislators to approve House Bill 195. The measure calls for overturning Texas’ 125-year ban on the open carry of handguns. Texas already allows for the open carry of shotguns and rifles.

The Open Carry Tarrant County group, led by Kory Watkins, visited the offices of several state lawmakers. While citizens clearly have the right to apply constituent pressure to encourage lawmakers to vote a certain way, the open carry activists became so belligerent that persuasion gave way to bullying tactics and outright intimidation. Their provocative behavior prompted the House to add a rule that would permit the installation of Department of Public Safety (DPS) panic buttons in member offices.

The open carry group videotaped an exchange with representative Poncho Nevarez (below). While the recording was supposed to rally people to the open carry activists’ cause, the rude, threatening behavior of the cameraman stood out more than anything else, as he taunted the lawmaker and refused to leave when asked to depart. When asked to leave the office, one of the activists shouted back at Nevarez, “you need to leave my state”.


The actions were even denounced by other open carry groups. C.J. Grisham of Open Carry Texas, harshly condemned the Open Carry Tarrant County group’s tactics. On Facebook, Grisham posted:

I’ll be spending tomorrow cleaning up the horse manure Kory Watkins dropped throughout the Capitol today instead of building support for constitutional carry. If starting fires were up for a vote, he’d be a grand arsonist. Yes, I said it. Some of us actually want bills passed that repeal laws violating our fundamental rights instead of vying for the title of Jackass of the Year. I’m done playing softball. I’m still getting phone calls from representatives and media hours later.

Grisham refers to Watkins as “a malignant cancer for the gun rights movement” who could jeopardize open carry legislation with his confrontational tactics. Grisham has a valid point. The argument that “an armed society is a polite society” isn’t very compelling when the people carrying guns are incredibly rude. Open Carry Tarrant County may enjoy heckling lawmakers, but being bullies who like to carry guns isn’t doing their cause any favors.

  1. These people are a bunch of fucking idiots.

    Who in the hell thinks that they need to carry an assault rifle while pushing a grocery cart.

    Grow up for Christ sakes!

  2. Is that picture real? If I was shopping at a store and saw someone with this or any other gun…..I would quietly abandon my shopping cart and leave!
    Texas……live free or die hard – OK

  3. Read the Constitution!

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    These folks always seem to forget ignore the first part about well regulated Militia.

  4. Oh well, this is what the GOP made. No sympathy from me, and I’m sure glad I don’t live in Texas or any other red state.

  5. In Texas, a terrorist group could carry rifles into the state legislature or any other state offices and open fire with impunity – all perfectly legal (except for the killings)

    What is the difference between terrorists and the open carry freaks? There isn’t any difference.

    Oops.

  6. This goes to show you, that you have to be a mental case to walk around shopping with a rifle over your shoulders. That’s exactly what happens when you try to deal with misfits. You reap what you sow.

  7. I am not a constitutional scholar, but I have never seen anything in the book about open carry of weapons.

    The laws says you can own, not open carry. What constitution are these freaks reading?

  8. Actually Demo,
    After looking at this video, I saw the freshman democratic representative Poncho Nevarez being bullied. He is a Mexican American serving a primarily Mexican American population. These people traveled there to harass him. I read a little about him how’s he’s the first person in his family to go to college, his family, children, his law practice. We should be outraged……look at the clip again!

  9. First, call them who and what they are. The new TEA/KKK party is now in charge. Republicans no longer exists – they are Republicans in name only. Second, Their actions show degredation of male species in Texas. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people!” And Wayne “Fifi” LePew absolved himself and all the gun dealers, gun show gatherings, backyard arms dealers, internet arms dealers, war-mongers and gun shows of the world. Wayne “Fifi” LePew takes no blame and absolves killing toddlers, wives, husbands, police, students.

  10. Excellent comments!
    Although, if I were in a store and I saw someone carrying a rifle, or handgun openly, I would immediately be on my cell phone calling 911 !!!!!!
    How am I supposed to know if the person carrying the weapon is there to SHOOT ME and all the others in the store?
    Maybe, in states that have open carry laws, if they get enough people in public places calling 911, for fear of bodily harm, just maybe the legislators in that state will revisit their open carry laws.

  11. How in the hell do these asshats ” Insure Domestic Tranquility” while terrorizing any one and everyone within range of their psychotic behavior?
    Have they not read the constitution?
    Do they not comprehend what they read?
    This behavior is repugnant.

  12. That would be my reaction. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near a cretin like this. Who knows what would set him off…

  13. “We carry AK 47’s in Kroger because their roaches are as big as tigers!”

    I suggest that every commercial establishment that permits such conduct be picketed with *something* like that.

  14. Frst of all, if I lived in a yahoo state like Texas, I would carry a gun and SHOOT THE FIRST ANGLO JACKASS WHO EVEN LOOKED AT ME THE WRONG WAY…..those racist bastards of that state would NOT hesitate to shoot at me, so, it would simply be who was ready to draw first…..THIS is the only thing that the bigoted, racist, ignorant rednecks in that state understand…..a state FULL OF TERRORISTS who believe in shooting first, and asking no questions!!! There’s no real understanding in tx—to them, and their racist jackass governor, all they want is nothing more than a state that looks more and more like Nazi Germany than anything else. And, the latest bunch of thugs and terrorists who went to the house PROVED MY POINT!!!

  15. The white hat is to alert folks he is there to “protect” them. I need to check “People of Walmart” I bet they have some good examples of the brave men willing to put down their lives for us…..in the grocery store.

  16. If he had been Black he would have been shot over 100 times. Black youths have died for carrying a store owned bb gun. (Walmark)

  17. They’re paranoid whack jobs with no self-esteem/confidence with a need to feel important. Basically people that shouldnt have access to weapons. Idiots.

  18. a new word has been created to describe these monocentric know-nothings—-AMMOSEXUAL. I think this is such an appropriate word/description!

  19. If I ran into an idiot like this coward above I would sneak up behind him and bean his ass with a can of something, take his proxy penis away and beat him almost to death with his own phallic symbol. I despise these COWARDS!!! Open Carry is Open CRAZY!! Open Carry IS Open Scarey! Open Carry Is Open Coward.

  20. Funny that the guy thinks he can let criminals in our country and doesn’t want us to have guns to protect ourselves.
    25 Americans a day get killed by illegal immigrants. Texans have had enough crime here with these open borders….so no I don’t blame him for complaining when Navarro fails to support the constitution which he SWORE TO UPHOLD.
    The only thing I can fault this guy for is not leaving the office when he was ordered out.

  21. so afraid of guns….you’d never survive in Texas. I feel safer if someone is armed in a store because if there’s a robbery at least there will be someone who can protect us.
    I grew up with guns all around me so I don’t feel threatened necessarily —depends on who is holding them.
    Citizens with guns stop a lot of crimes so denying that makes YOU look irrational.
    Since you can be armed at the state capital then tell me how many of them have been killed….facts please.

  22. I live in Texas and I’m not racist. I was married to a Mexican American. You guys are just ignorant of the crime we have been enduring with open borders. You need to wise up…or better yet invite them all to your state. These illegals are not all upstanding citizens. We got MS13 from Reagan’s amnesty now we have worse from open borders since then.

  23. Tea party stands for TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY…has nothing to do with the KKK or the Nazis. Go to a meeting and see for yourselves before you make stupid judgements. Hispanics join. If it was racist would they? That’s just propaganda.

  24. On the contrary I stay away from anti gun establishments like Starbucks and Target. If there’s going to be mass murder it will be in a gun free zone. Lots of proof to establish that fact.

  25. These two chief skinheads, Watkins and Grisham should meet at the OK Corral and have a shootout.
    Moms Against Guns could sponsor a “pi__off” by the biggest pr__ks with the smallest d__ks.
    It should draw a big crowd and the proceeds could go to the victims of Sandyhook.[WINK]

  26. The old guy wasn’t bullying…..just one of them was a bully….the one that said “don’t touch me” and made threats. But the congressman was condescending too and made no honest effort to justify his position. That’s why donkeys don’t go to school….NOBODY likes a smart ass.

  27. I live in Florida. We were fine until the Emily Schaeffer types started stirring things up. Who do you think you’re talking to?

  28. No Exhibit A may be coming to your state soon….we get a disproportionate amount of these felons here but hopefully they will disperse throughout the state if we start cracking down on crime and get our sanctuary cities punished. The democrats are the minority in Texas so no doubt there are going to be big changes with Gov. Abbott.
    Be sure and offer in-state tuition in your state….that will help us. Perry is gone so that will likely change here.

  29. The only thing I ever shot at was a rattlesnake. Actually I don’t carry a gun around except on the farm. But it would be wise to as things seem to be getting worse. Dead bodies found almost nightly it’s depressing to watch the news. One of my friends son was killed by the cartel and another friend said her brother was threatened by them. It’s scary down here. You don’t understand. Another friend told me her son’s friend was shot and paralyzed in a road rage incident. Lots of home invasions too. Not enough cops.
    Easy to judge if you don’t have to live like this.

  30. LOL! Now theres logic for you. It doesnt matter what gun free zones exist, school killers always pick fellow students. It has nothing to do with gun free zones

  31. You think so? I’ll decide what my limit is.
    You sure are bossy and overbearing. So intolerant that you have no empathy so let’s see how you feel when it’s you that suffers.

  32. I have a friend in Florida. That’s not what she says. Depends on your definition of FINE.

    I can tell you have never been a victim of crime by the way you think. That would change drastically if you lived here during Obama’s open borders. It’s gotten much worse.

  33. DUH??? Schools are gun free zones….not very effective ones. There should be armed guards at schools now. That will stop the school shootings.

  34. How about our nightly news in San Antonio? You’d see plenty of home invasions, drive by shootings, robberies, rapes, murders….and the news never reports if it’s an illegal alien perpetrator. I find that very telling about who’s controlling the narrative.

  35. THE CLAIM: Undocumented immigrants kill 25 Americans a day.
    U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said, “The lives of 12 U.S. citizens die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day. Another 13 Americans are killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals.” King’s claim has been repeated hundreds of times by extremists.
    THE FACTS: King “extrapolated” his numbers from a study by the General Accounting Office that showed 28% of inmates in local jails and state and federal prisons were “criminal aliens.” What the GAO study actually showed was that 28% of all federal prisoners (federal prisoners make up 12%-17% of the total incarcerated were either legal or illegal immigrants. The study did not distinguish. It also stated that about 50% of those immigrants were only charged with being in the country illegally. Just 12% were there for violent crimes. (Southern Poverty Law Center)
    Wasn’t it King who made the crack about “illegals with ‘cantaloupe calves”?

  36. Well then let’s get an official regulated state militia….Texas needs one badly. No doubt Mr Nevarez would be against that too.

  37. Rhondar, we are not “afraid” of guns. There is no fear of the firearm it’s self. But what anyone should fear are the Second Ammedment, God Fearin’ Bible Thumping,States Rights Anti Abortion/Birth Control, Anti Education Anti Union Anti Climate Science Anti This Anti That..well you get my drift I Hope. Rhondar your brand of weak Fox News like logic cannot survive the light of cold hard reality. Gun Nuts claim that “guns have nothing to do with gun crime”..THAT is complete and total INSANITY! yet to them it their insanity is “normal” Gun Nuts are nothing but a bunch of genitally challenged COWARDS who can NEVER feel like a real man unless they have a gun. As far as women there is the point to be made that you need to be armed to protect yourself from those God Fearin Bible Thumping States Rights Anti Abortion Anti Birth Control..etc…etc…

  38. The Texas Rangers and the Texas National Guard have both existed for ages. I have seen no lack of local sheriffs and police, either. I’m sorry you are such a pants-wetter you need a personal bodyguard. Your fixation on a man in the Lege with an exotic surname is eloquent.

  39. No. It’s not because you disagree. It’s because you’re disagreeable. And note that I have not called you an inbreeder, a doggess,or a queynte.

  40. Those idiots went in that office to bully him. He was just agreeing with everything they said. He would not give them the argument they wanted. He handled it better than I could. You’re using that coward saying don’t touch him as some kind of example of being right. Who was trying to “touch”, he needed the touch of a good kick. But that was what those…..gotta be Lil Ole Lady Granny here. It isn’t the right forum to flame.
    I have Prime..and the shows from HBO are new to me. I just watched Rome last week. There sure were a lot of heads on spikes and people being crucified. I have to laugh just thinking what little Mr. Don’t Touch Me would do if he met a real man, a Roman soldier from the Glory days getting ready to use those guns as the new spikes. I bet he would be crying for his Mama as the soldiers were inserting the “spike”. All the Chicken Hawks should meet a few spikes. [WINK]

  41. A gun is better off locked away. A gun on the street almost insures that more people then the original victims would be shot

  42. Rhondar, as someone who has a library of books concerning WW1, WW2 Korean Conflict and Vietnam War books historical,biograpical and factual, I can tell you quite accurately that the TEA Pottie-ers are exactly like the Germans who joined The National Socialist Workers Party of Germany. Fox News IS a perfect example of Josef Goebbels playbook for propaganda. The NRA however would not exist though because Hitler made sure that weapons were confiscated from the general public to keep them from rising against the state. AND Hitler was a Christian Conservative..just like todays God Fearin’ Gun Nuts who are Anti everything. So YES The Tea Pottie-ers ARE NAZI”S

  43. Rhondar,
    I do agree with you! You bring up an excellent (unfortunate) case.
    All the photos I have seen of people in states with open carry laws, have their weapons posed on them just like the photo in this story. They strut around with their holsters, or rifles very openly.
    There are unfortunate cases like the one you shared, but for the most part, I would be scared if I saw someone walking around with a weapon NOT stowed in their shopping cart!

  44. “Governor Perry quoted Texas DPS stats to Glenn Beck over 3,000 homicides were committed “by illegal aliens over the” last six years.
    This claim is unsupported by the presentation he relied on, which indicates that since 2008 in Texas, more than 200,000 arrested immigrants — foreign nationals living here with or without legal permission — had among them accumulated 3,070 homicide charges (not convictions) in their lives. Put another way, for this declaration to hold water, one would have to assume illegal immigrants committed nearly half of the state’s homicides since 2008; we found no such data.
    This statement is both incorrect and ridiculous. Pants on Fire!”(From Rhondar’s reference.)
    You should have read past the pie chart.

  45. For your information the Texas National Guard has no policing authority. They were recently put on the border as spotters and couldn’t confront the illegals.
    Sheriff’s have enough duties without defending the border from invasion. That is not their function.
    The Texas Rangers is too small to do it also.
    We actually now have DPS doing the job of stopping the invaders but we also need an OFFICIAL citizens militia too since DHS and the other federal agencies are standing down.
    Your all wet.

  46. what do you think disagreeable means….let me consult my (snipped) and see if it means something other than to disagree.

  47. Hitler claimed to be a Christian but he was into the occult. That’s a well known fact and certainly no Christian does that….it’s forbidden in the bible.
    Yes gun confiscation always proceeds genocide…you make my point for me.

    National SOCIALIST Party?….no way Tea Party wants anything to do with socialism—in fact that’s why we oppose Obama. The democrats are the socialist. The republicans are statists so I don’t fit there either one of those parties.

    Don’t bring up FOX to me….I consider them a DISINFO channel. Especially Bill O’Reilly. I can’t stand Glenn Beck either.

  48. Yeah. Not knowing Hitler loosened gun ownership.

    But it may be referring to the Jews . A very distinct minority that had no chance in hell against the German military.

    Its really really a weak stretch

  49. Rhonda you stupid TWIT!!! Democrats are NOT SOCIALISTS!!! Democrat=Democracy..see the similarity? Republicans statists!? Really?! How about Republicans=Fascists that is much more accurate. And don’t even think you can lecture me on Hitler and the Nazi’s Not for one second! Hitler WAS!!! a Conservative CHRISTIAN! Jesuit to be sure. Hitlers PEOPLE were into the occult! Himmler,Goering were into the Vril society and worshiped Nordic gods. But Hitler was most definitely a Conservative Christian. And once more for your wiffle brain Obama IS NOT A SOCIALIST!! You have gotten into a debate that you can NEVER win!!

  50. No, Bupid Stitch, to deal with *crime*, you increase the size of existing law enforcement. Dealing with *immigration* is the exclusive province of the United States government. Eliminating brown people is the province of armed lynch mobs, and that appears to be your objective.

  51. And when you really look at it there is not a ounce of difference in what the Nazis did with gun ownership with the Jews than what America with its gun laws regarding Blacks

  52. Well Shitmenot let’s see what stats the FBI has….I couldn’t find them…..Can you?
    How about DHS?
    Surely someone besides the Texas DPS keeps stats on this.
    I know what I see on the news every night and what I hear from people I know. Reports have leaked out of the Border Patrol too about how many gang bangers are among the lots of immigrants so I’d say you are grasping at straws by trying to refute their stats which clearly are just Texas alone….what about the rest of the nation?

    Show me.

  53. Actually, there is no conflict between a certain kind of “Christianity” and playing footsie with the occult. Our Dominionists do it, and so did Hitler.

  54. You think yourself wise but you are wrong:
    The claim is sometimes made that Hitler was a Christian – a Roman Catholic until the day he died. In fact, Hitler rejected Christianity.

    The book Hitler’s Secret Conversations 1941-1944 published by Farrar, Straus and Young, Inc.first edition, 1953, contains definitive proof of Hitler’s real views. The book was published in Britain under the title, _Hitler’s Table Talk 1941-1944, which title was used for the Oxford University Press paperback edition in the United States.

    All of these are quotes from Adolf Hitler:
    Night of 11th-12th July, 1941:

    National Socialism and religion cannot exist together…. The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity’s illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity….

Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity…. Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things. (p 6 & 7)
    10th October, 1941, midday:

    Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure. (p 43)
    14th October, 1941, midday:

  56. And NO!!! Rhondar I did NOT make your point for you concerning removing firearms and genocide you are grasping at straws. What you fail to grasp is that guns are dangerous and they are not for the general public whatsoever, there are too many hateful narrow minded people who 99% of the time vote Republican Conservative TeaBragger ESPESCIALLY the TeaBraggers! They are the most hateful ignorant Racist people ever to occupy this nation. I do not consider them to even be Americans, the TeaPottie-ers are domestic terrorists. They have no idea what being an American is all about.

  57. Yes Rhonda I have that very book that you’re quoting from and you have to read on further. Those quotes are made irrelevant by the speeches he made claiming a mandate from God for the German Nation. Hitler was also flat out lying to certain people in his party to gain their loyalty when he said the things that you quote. You really need to go deeper when you try to use quotes to try and disprove me. Give up Rhondar you have lost again.

  58. you are getting hysterical now Uhl….you need to calm down and discuss this intelligently. I’m pretty good at history so you aren’t going to win that argument about Hitler….or socialism…..or the Tea Party. I can tell you don’t have a clue what the Tea Party stands for. You have been brainwashed.

  59. Yes, we see daily what the teas bags stand for. A few of them think they stand for A constitution as interpreted by their leaders. The leaders are all about shutting the government downs the koch can have it, after all thats where their money comes from. The rest of the tea bags are pushing religion.

    Maybe you need to get out into public and observe

  60. Uh Rhondar you are a stupid twit I HAVE that program recorded and EVERY episode of World at War I have hundreds of hours of documentaries, and even nitrate films. Like I said you are trying to debate with some one who has access to more info than you do at their finger tips. I could practically write a book on the subject. Just stop you’re embarrassing yourself.

  61. And how often has that happened? In Tucson the armed man who drew his gun after Gabby Giffords and other were shot, discovered, to his horror, he’d drawn a bead on someone trying to STOP the shooter. That’s the key problem with your analysis – that people with guns are more capable of finding the RIGHT person in a melee.

  62. Uhl if you have that book you must have not read it. All those quotes were recorded by his private secretary and verified. Hitler hated that Germany was a Christian nation and only pretended to be Christian for his political advantage.

  63. Uhl I don’t care how many books you have if you are misquoting them like you just did about Hitler being a Christian. You are just wrong and calling me a twit isn’t proving you are right. Hitler was also into astrology. How Christian is that?
    You either know little about Hitler or little about Christianity….probably both.

  64. The only thing hysterical is my laughter at you Rhondar. Your grasp of history is tenuous at best you seem to cherry pick to attempt proof. I do get upset to be sure but what do you expect when people like you keep trying to put forth such bullsh!t as truth. And YES I know about the Tea Party and how it started, you must know your enemy if you wish to destroy it and the Tea Party needs to be destroyed before it destroys Democracy in favor of a Conservative Theocracy. Like I’ve said before just give up you’re on the losing side of reality. You’re just a waste of my time.

  65. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/365103/how-nazis-used-gun-control-stephen-p-halbrook
    1st registration….then gun control
    In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”

  66. Ron Paul started the tea party…the RINOS hijacked it for awhile via
    Sarah Palin (the Judas Goat) but it’s back on the right track now for the most part. There are different factions still but the main thrust is smaller govt., lower taxes, more liberty, non interventionist foreign policy. If you have a problem with those tenets I feel sorry for you.

  67. Shiva….this is for you

  68. djchefron….your own article disproves you…that was not the beginning of the
    Tea Party….Ron Paul started it not Koch bros.

    your reading comprehension is slipping:
    The Koch-founded-and-run Citizens for a Sound Economy (shown there as running this “Tea Party”) subsequently divided itself into two parts: FreedomWorks, and Americans For Prosperity. Both parts ardently pushed the Tea Party “movement” (which didn’t yet exist).

    Then, on November 8, 2006, their coming website was announced specifically in Chicago, as the “Sam Adams Alliance”:

  69. The tea bags? First demonstration just prior to Obama being inaugurated. Born in gop corporate headquarters. The koch brothers fund the largest tea bag groups who then funnel money down to the smaller ones. Like teabags for prosperity

    Ron paul no matter how badly you want to believe your propaganda had nothing to do with it. Purely against Obama and nothing else.

    Ever wonder why the tea thugs are never against corporations or banks tasking your money?

  70. Uh… Hitler was into astrology. So was Reagan and his wife. AND they were, and are, venerated by the right who consider themselves to be “christians” too.

  71. The total number of homicides in the US is 14,000 a year or about 38 per day. Unless illegals commit 2/3rds of US homicides (hint: they don’t) your numbers are way off. But at least its nice of you to admit that black on black crime must be nearly non-existent in order for your numbers to make sense. I guess that is worth something.

  72. Looks like Texas has a crime problem. I guess those lax gun laws they have don’t stop crime. Thanks for admitting that a Republican controlled state is a complete failure at preventing crime. Its big of you to admit how bad Texas sucks under Rick Perry. Well played.

  73. My, my, we are very thinned skinned today, aren’t we? I was not calling anyone a name as I was not in a discussion with someone.

    Did I make a anatomical observation about a general group of people, yes. Was that observation accurate? Probably not, but when a group of armed people march into state congressional offices and start making demands and scaring representatives you are an asshole.

    White and tight or big and bright, these assholes are ambassadors for Texas and appear to represent the conservative values of Texas.

    Relax, have a bong hit.

  74. Stupid bitch??? How CHARMING.
    I guess you don’t understand the concept of funding.
    Local police and sheriffs are paid by the taxpayers…the federal agencies are paid by all states citizens in the form of income taxes. Why should citizens in a state like Texas foot the bill for enforcement which is a FEDERAL responsibility?
    Your idiotic president is complacent in his duty to protect our border. We are doing what we can to protect OUR state but I deeply resent people like you benefitting from our efforts and would gladly ship every one of these law breakers to your state.

  75. Nobody ever heard of the Tea Party until Ron Paul in 2007. That Koch brothers connection you cited clearly calls their 2 organizations by other names.
    You libs just can’t admit you are wrong.
    Yes we have a crime problem because your liberal president and those before him since Reagan have not controlled the border….we don’t have a crime problem with law abiding citizens shooting each other.

  76. Patricia, I surely don’t venerate Reagan. He was a horrible president & his wife Nancy is a witch, like Barbara Bush. The last decent president we had was JFK. Back then I was a democrat. I despise the neocon trash that passes for conservatives these days.
    It seems there is little difference between democrats and republicans now. No lesser of 2 evils. NWO is still socialism.

  77. Here is an inconvenient fact for you hateful libs…..G W Bush calls Bill Clinton the 4th Bush brother. Those 2 families are as thick as theives so when you go out in 2016 and pull the lever for Hillary remember that fact.
    Poppy runs them all just like he does Obama.

  78. Name calling intellectually deprived (depraved) who can’t seem to foment a substantive argument and results to name calling.
    Your mama must be proud !

  79. Two years ago this week, President Obama ordered the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to get back to studying “the causes of gun violence.”
    But today the CDC still avoids gun-violence research, demonstrating what many see as the depth of its fear about returning to one of the country’s most divisive debates. The agency recently was asked by The Washington Post why it was still sitting on the sidelines of firearms studies. It declined to make an official available for an interview but responded with a statement noting it had commissioned an agenda of possible research goals but still lacked the dedicated funding to pursue it.
    The biggest problem is that Congress refuses to fund that research, so it’s not getting done.

  80. They maybe ruining a favorable natural path forward for gun owners which feel they need OC.
    I must ponder the OCT qualifications due to fact no organization leaders are named on prime website. I’d like to know some of their bio’s even without full names. We know the agenda to rightfully uphold 2nd but who are they. Do they have CHL’s. Why do they feel to march with long guns since its legal and why will this help pass OC. Will they settle for OC with permit?
    They claim to get people used to seeing open display of arms. Guess everyone will no longer look an open holstered hand gun with fear anymore thanks to this group.
    Calf chances were ruined due to groups like this. This group will deny this claim. They are blind.
    Well if OC passes to some degree are they going to be the only ones with open hand gun in public until they get bored and novelty wears off?
    My group is prepared to file class action law suits against OCT if OC…

  81. Rhondar, were you completely lose the debate with me and others here is that to attempt to make a point you must cut and paste from the internet. I on the other UPPER hand have the material at hand and have read the material and have analyzed it over the years. There is a lot to be said for those who think instead of cut and paste.

  82. Rhondar Yes I have the book AND Hitlers private secretaries< more than one ALSO wrote a book and the truth was revealed. Adolph Hitler was a JESUIT CATHOLIC and wanted to be a priest and studied to be one. What you have been fooled by is the age old bait and switch. I suppose you're going to also deny that the Japanese were also the victims of conservatism in the ranks of the military? No matter what you cut and paste Rhondar you are wrong. Face it you simply cannot face the FACT that Religion and Conservatism have caused wars GENOCIDE from the very first day they were mixed. I suppose you will also deny the fact that Nixon traveled to Europe to bring back Ex-Nazi's to help develop a Conservative agenda and also to develop media and messaging.

  83. The Tea Potty started after a rant on the floor of the NYSE by a financial reporter. And it was also pushed into the forefront by rabid Christian Conservatives who simply hated Obama because of his race. As far as the “taxed enough already” That is simply a BIG LIE that greedy corporate conservatives pushed, Frank Luntz had a lot to do with it. In FACT the very people who think they are being taxed too much (Tea Party) are the ones who are voting in droves for the very people who want to raise taxes on working Americans and ELIMINATE taxes for the Uber Wealthy and YOU bought it Hook Line and Sinker. The Tea Party is nothing but a bunch of room temperature morons who believe and eat up every LIE the Conservatives and FOX News feeds them…You Included!!
