    A little new found respect for Dan Patrick? On Meet the Press

    Dan Patrick went on Meet the Press to discuss the new OC laws.

    Wow. For not having a "perfect" stance on the issues, I was impressed with the fervor with which he defended both open carry and lowering the bar for being able to obtain and carry firearms for self defense.

    It is a Facebook video. You *should* be able to view it without logging in, as I was able to. Hopefully it works for everyone.

    Compare Obama's non-logical arguments to Dan Patrick. Difference between the Truth and Hope (people fall for my 'keep your Dr' lies again).

    I know you were just playing; this is for other readers.

    Stealthy and I have traded a few PM's.

    His commitment to freedom and his faith (is there any difference?) are, to me, beyond doubt anymore.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I don't get out much

    I've not yet decided whether or not I'll be a regular contributor to the "experiences" documentation project. I understand the importance of it - non-events are too easily ignored and forgotten by the masses, and having swaths of documentation of open carry without any issues can make an undeniable point when advocating for liberty in gun rights - but I'm not sure whether or not sharing my experiences is 'for me.'

    Thank you for the kind words, friend.

    No explanation required buddy. Citizen was correct...I was just yanking your chain. To me, the importance of posting experiences is to let others know what to expect, especially at certain locations. I know a lot of people "lurk", or they join but don't really post anything, so I really direct my experiences at everybody and not just regular members here.
    Plus, it's fun to now have a real TX OC experiences thread--we were late to the party
