Greg Abbott Affirms Teacher Authority to Carry Concealed Weapons in Texas

In June 2013, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed the Protection of Texas Children Act (BH 1009) into law, authorizing schools to train certain employees as “school marshals” and carry concealed weapons on campus. After an apparent challenge to the bill by Democrat State Representative Joe Pickett (D-El Paso) in an AG Opinion Request, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott re-affirmed the authority of the law and clarified issues raised by Pickett.

Cornyn Rips Holder Over Gun Control 'Bracelets'

Last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testified before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies about how to make guns safer.

Transgendered Texas Teacher Not 'Reinstated'—Contrary to Left Media

The employment status of the “transgendered” substitute seems to be as ambiguous as the teacher’s gender identity. After a school board meeting last week, it was announced and reported by left-of-center media outlets across the nation like the New York Times that Laura James Klug was reinstated to teaching status. Now it appears that may not be the case. Apr 16, 2014 6:36 AM PT

Texas Immigration Debate: Two Sides Talking Past Each Other

Texas Lt. Governor candidate State Sen. Dan Patrick, a Republican, engaged in a highly-publicized debate on immigration and border security with San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, a Democrat widely believed to have national political aspirations, in a less-than-civil exhibition match of polarized views. Sen. Patrick typically presents himself as a conservative grassroots champion for border security, whereas Mayor Castro styles himself as a left-of-center advocate for illegal immigrants. With both men somewhat symbolic of the two opposing sides in the national immigration debate--at least in their own minds and those of their most ardent supporters--the debate was a microcosm of what is occurring nationally on the issue. Viewers witnessed two men holding opposing views who largely talked past each other in efforts to score political points. Apr 16, 2014 5:45 AM PT

Did Wendy Davis 'Blur the Facts' about Not Ducking Obama?

In April 2010, Michael Quinn Sullivan wrote about then-gubernatorial candidate and Houston Mayor Bill White ducking out of town as to not be seen with President Obama during his visit to Texas.
