    Likely to be an all day affair but with a committee chair more friendly to our cause than the dog and pony shows headed up by Joan Huffman.

    I just may take the day off and go up there to speak my three minutes worth on constitutional carry and changes to 30.05/30.06/30.07.

    Excellent! If you do the Facebook thing, be sure to follow Rachel Malone of the GOA for updates, suggested talking points and a possible pre-hearing strategy talk.

    Just a quick reminder that this hearing is not on a specific bill, so there is no stupid proposal that needs to be fought against. This is an opportunity to speak out in support of our rights, to let the good Senators hear how much you value gun rights and how they should go about protecting them. Three minutes isn't much time to speak, so pick one topic near to your heart and focus on it. Whether it is Constitutional Carry, ending Gun Free Zones, etc., be there and let your voice be heard.

    I will be coming down 71 from the Llano area if anyone along that route needs a lift to the hearing. Hitting the road at zero dark thirty and staying until the party is over or maybe a bit longer if we grab a cold beer and a bite to eat after the hearing.
