    Would like to be there, but having recently gone under the knife I can't do the walking required to get from parking to the meeting.

    Going to be a long, long day. The committee is now hearing the last of three invited panels on the subject of human trafficking, with public testimony to follow. After that, they start in on personal property protections,with both invited and public testimony. Eventually, they will get around to the important stuff. Public testimony has been cut from the announced 3 minutes down to 2 minutes. I guess I can use the waiting time to revise and consolidate my testimony.

    A surprisingly unbiased news report on the hearing:

    https://www.kxan.com/news/texas-pol...on-licenses-to-carry-firearms-in-last-decade/

    There may even be a short quote from a TGT member towards the end of the article.

    The report doesn't mention one of the small highlights of the day. 2A supporters completely filled all available seats in the Senate chamber and the small (about a dozen) Demanding Mommies were relegated to seats in the gallery above the chamber.

    Appreciated but no thanks required, sir. It is a pleasure to be able to assemble with such a large group of fine citizens to seek redress of our grievances. Well, the long wait to speak for a whole two minutes does suck a bit but meeting and talking with other gun owners makes the hours fly by. It's like a day of conversation at a gun store or the range.
