A gunman interrupts the TX workplace...
Governor Rick Perry this week said enough people in Texas have concealed handgun licenses to deter violent criminals. In his words, “that keeps us all safer.”
A 24-year-old Houston-area man, Fausto Cardenas, fired several shots outside the state Capitol early this week, triggering a huge response from state troopers who almost immediately took the person into custody.
Cardenas had just visited the Capitol office of Senator Dan Patrick, Republican from Houston.
No one was injured, but the Texas Department of Public Safety closed the Capitol for the remainder of the day. Neither Governor Rick Perry nor Lt. Governor David Dewhurst were in the Capitol at the time of the incident.
Cardenas was described at the time as a “clean-shaven, very nondescript kind of guy with brownish blonde hair.” Disclosure of whether Cardenas had a permit to carry a concealed handgun…is illegal.
The day after a shooting outside the state Capitol, lawmakers on Friday suggested that metal detectors to the building entrances were imminent, a move Gov. Rick Perry suggested he would not likely support. Perry accepted endorsements from the Texas State Rifle Association and the NRA on Friday.
How do your Texas representatives, including Governor Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison, vote on gun laws?
And the President of the United States appears to agree with the Anti gun control side:
“In just one year, Barack Hussein Obama has signed into law MORE REPEALS of federal gun policies than in President George W. Bush’s eight years in office.”
