#TXLEGE: Patrick's "Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention" appointments aren't much better

"Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me."
Nehemiah 4:18

Yesterday, we discussed Bonnen's appointments to this new select committee to exploit El Paso and Odessa to push a longstanding agenda.  Lt. Dan waited until later in the day to release his appointees.  Likewise YIKES:


  • The fact that Huffman is chairing this committee tells you everything.
  • If you don't see the chilling implications for civil liberties in second and fourth charges...are you even paying attention?!?
  • That being said, the list of charges does seem long enough that to suggest that there won't be a special session in the immediate future.
  • At least a committee of 5 R's and 3 D's is an accurate reflection of the partisan breakdown of the Texas Senate.
  • We can't go into detail without burning sources, but some of the R's on that committee have been talking out of both sides of their mouth on the second amendment for a long time.
  • It might very well be for the best, but considering that he's the Senator who represents Odessa, for Patrick to not include Seliger is insanely petty.
  • Pray for Kelly Hancock.
    • For real y'all.
  • Bryan Hughes taking over State Affairs might have positive implications over the longer run.
Bottom Line: Nothing good is coming out of this process....
