We do things bigger in Texas. We have some of the biggest cowards in the country.
Texas House Bill 2744 which would raise the age of purchasing an assault weapon from 18 to 21 has stalled because the Committee Chair, Representative Ryan Guillen, has refused to allow a vote to send it to the House.
HB2744 was filed by Representative Phil King as a result of the massacre in Uvalde taking the lives of 19 children and 2 teachers. Needless to say the parents of those kids showed up in Austin, waiting for 13 hours to testify on the bill. Yet Guillen will not allow a vote to get it out of committee. Why? Glad you asked.
Guillen claims it would never get put on the calendar for debate on the floor. If this bill would get to the House floor representatives,like Dennis Paul shown here wearing a stupid looking NRA hat at the polls, would have to publicly vote against it. They would have to vote against the parents of the kids who were shot and killed by an 18 year old with a weapon that they gave easy access to. They would have to take responsibility for giving that law abiding citizen the opportunity to be a mass killer of kids.
This is who they are. A bunch of Texas sized, rotten, cowards.
