#TXLEGE: Dan Patrick is the new Dubya

"Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
But such as keep the law contend with them."
Proverbs 28:4

Dan Patrick sent...quite the e-mail yesterday:
I am sorry that some of my allies in the battle to protect our Second Amendment rights are angry about this — but as I say in this Fox clip, the National Rifle Association is just wrong on this. Their refusal to compromise on this issue will only hurt our long-term defense of the Second Amendment.


If those of us who support the Second Amendment won’t begin a discussion on this common sense change in our current laws, we risk losing everything. The crazed gun control crowd— from Biden to Beto — will sweep in and destroy our rights. They want to take away our guns — and even remove the Second Amendment from the Constitution.
In other words: Dan Patrick wants to suspend the Second Amendment to save the Second Amendment.

[Note: Does Patrick feel the same way about the fourth, fifth and sixth amendments?!?]

Where have we heard that logic before?!?
BUSH: Well, I have obviously made a decision to make sure the economy doesn’t collapse. I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.
[Note: It's absolutely insane, but all video clips of that Dubya quote have been scrubbed from the internet.]

Eleven years after that Dubya remark, the free market has never recovered.  It might be in modestly better shape than it was 3 or 4 years ago.  But the U.S. economy remains less free to this day.

With all due respect to Dan Patrick, we don't want to see that happen to the Second Amendment (or the fourth, fifth and sixth).

Bottom Line: They're not even coming up with new talking points anymore.
