Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 6/17/2015

17 June 2015 at 7:55:02 PM

Have been binge watching "Sons of Anarchy" and now it's done. Looks like that final death scene was packed with Jesus references AND now also done watching Game of Thrones.... until next season. Next I want to go find "Young Frankenstein" and watch it again- watched "Bride of Frankenstein" last week on Svengoolie and it reminded me how hilarious the scene with Peter Boyle and Gene Hackman was. 

Have been thinking more about open carry and CHL (concealed handgun license) and have heard and discussed conflicting viewpoints about whether a citizen can bring a CNL or open carry into a government meeting. Does one of those signs have to be on the door to keep guns out? I'm going to try again to call the bill's author tomorrow to find out. 

Did you think campus carry was settled law? If this were me, and I had a child that was looking at colleges to attend, none of them would be at public universities in Texas.

Now that Gov. Greg Abbotthas signed Senate Bill 11 into law, each four-year state school has 14 months to come up with its own policy on where concealed handguns may be carried by students or others with a state license. The new law provides few specifics on where those guns can or cannot be banned, leaving the process open to passionate debate.

“We are going to figure out how to make sure we do everything we can to protect the faculty and the students and the visitors and not impact academic freedom in any way,” McRaven said in an interview soon after SB 11 passed. “We are going to do everything we can to make sure we’re meeting the full intent of this bill.”

That could be difficult, however, since the intent is a matter of debate. As written, the law expressly states that the holder of a concealed handgun license can carry a gun on college campuses. But it also allows schools to create some gun-free zones.

The law doesn’t say how big those zones can be, or how many can be created. Can a president declare all of a school’s dorms, classrooms and dining halls gun-free? Or are the zones limited to particularly dangerous locations, like where harmful chemicals are stored? 

There are now 12 Republican candidates running for office, NONE OF WHOM I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR-hah! 

Speaking of-How many GOP candidates showed up for the Latino convention? One. Ben Carson, who last time I looked was black. 

I filed a complaint with the Texas Attorney General's Open Records area the other day due to Ray Reynolds failing to respond to my open records request re: check registers. 

Town of Hawkins told to remove Jesus sign


Florida Sheriff told to stop preaching while wearing his uniform.

We don't have any problem with him preaching in church and we don't have any problem with him teaching Sunday school, he's free to do that," said Andrew Seidel, attorney for FFRF. "What's he's not allowed to do is use the public government office and title and uniform to promote his personal religion."
