    Good article. Thank you for posting it!
    Now I just wish the politicians in Texas would find the guts to stand up to the liberals and make a stand for OC!!

    The only thing "Wild West" about this is Reno's last name and her attempt to ban handguns, as did many towns throughout the West, to the detriment of the honest, law-abiding citizens who lived there.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    The 'Wild West' was several orders of magnitude better than what we have now....
