One of the last places I would cite for liberty centric reporting by a media outlet is Mother Jones.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Jones_(magazine)

Their radio outfit could be found on Air America. Mother Jones is the Huffing and Puffington Post...just spelled different.
eh, kinda like wiki's early reputation i am sure, but their site had the information i was seeking consolidated in one succinct location rather root by individual establishment like a truffle on al's invention...

Police across Texas are bracing for a spike in 911 calls when the state’s open carry law takes effect Jan. 1 and panicked citizens start seeing handguns on people’s hips.

Too funny and sad in some respects.

Oops...much ado about nothing, reading the previous how can this be?

I agree with the OP, this is not the time rest on "our laurels" it now time to press the ball forward across the goal line while the press reports are fresh and new. Waiting will permit the anti-liberty crowd to tally up the few and far between negative incidents and portray them as a direct result of the new OC law. Cops will not hesitate to ignore their own facts and support the anti-liberty crowd.

Liberty centric Texans hold the high ground and the initiative, take advantage of this while you can.

That may be, but OCT and OCTC are two distinctly different organizations that the Lying Mommies and the other media are glad to lie/mislead about.

Let's not misstate OP and overreact.

OP says "Gun Owners Will Boycott and Selectively Picket Businesses which do not Respect the Right to Choose Open or Concealed Carry"

Boycott is anything from just choosing another place to eat, to dropping off a no guns = no money card, to explaining to a manager or owner that you won't do business with them as long as they have signs up.

"Selectively picket" doesn't mean run out and find every business with a sign up and stage protests out front, it just reserves more vocal protesting as an option.
