    What mayor should've said to the council members- "snitches get stitches". What they should have said to the press - not a damn thing. People gotta protect themselves. Just don't be stupid next time and drop it.

    Sorry Saltyag2010, the mayor ought to have to play by the same rules as everyone else. If he did wrong, he needs to face the consequences.

    Politicians threatening others to be quiet because of their criminal behavior would not fly with me as being acceptable in any circumstances. Hope it does not fly with you either.

    Sec. 46.035. UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF HANDGUN BY LICENSE HOLDER. (a) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder carries a handgun on or about the license holder's person under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, and intentionally displays the handgun in plain view of another person in a public place.
    (b) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless of whether the handgun is concealed, on or about the license holder's person:
    (1) on the premises of a business that has a permit or license issued under Chapter 25, 28, 32, 69, or 74, Alcoholic Beverage Code, if the business derives 51 percent or more of its income from the sale or service of alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption, as determined by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission under Section 104.06, Alcoholic Beverage Code;
    (2) on the premises where a high school, collegiate, or professional sporting event or interscholastic event is taking place, unless the license holder is a participant in the event and a handgun is used in the event;
    (3) on the premises of a correctional facility;
    (4) on the premises of a hospital licensed under Chapter 241, Health and Safety Code, or on the premises of a nursing home licensed under Chapter 242, Health and Safety Code, unless the license holder has written authorization of the hospital or nursing home administration, as appropriate;
    (5) in an amusement park; or

    Eta: I say this because usually if its a Republican the media will point that out 3 or 4 times in the article. This article doesn't mention affiliation.

    He does not claim either Republican or Democratic party affiliations. He is a veteran, mason, founded Apache Oil Company, and has been mayor twice before. Pretty fiscally conservative. Probably leans right, but understands the nature of his changing community and does not want to alienate the libs.
