    Today, I am respectfully asking the governor, lieutenant governor and speaker of the house of Texas to empanel a blue-ribbon Commission on Gun Violence In Texas. The primary charge of the commission shall be to determine the root causes of gun violence in Texas and to propose legislation to address these issues, to be adopted in the 86th Legislature. The secondary charge of the commission shall be to publish the findings of the commission and disseminate through education and conference the proposals of the commission.



    The panel will be chaired by an appointee of the governor, with the co-vice chairmen appointed by the lieutenant governor and speaker of the house. The commission should include four senators (two from each political party) and four members of the house (two from each political party) and four members who shall be a law enforcement specialist, a mental health expert, a member of the clergy and an ethicist (in each case to be chosen by a majority of the appointees of the chairman and vice chairman).

    There is no question that mental health plays a significant role in these attacks, and certainly, adequate mental health funding and accessibility shall be a key component to any solution to this complex issue.

    But, to be perfectly clear, the commission shall focus on ALL possible causes of gun violence in Texas including lax or deficient gun control laws and regulations in Texas. No shibboleth shall be off limits.
    THERE NEEDS TO BE COMMON SENSE GUN CONTROL REFORM IN TEXAS! If we expect a change in the outcomes, we must consider all inputs. The time is now to DO something. Whatever that may be.

    The common sense reform we already have, wasn't adhered to by the military.

    How about we try to master the laws we have before making more?

    This is the same guy that wanted to make it illegal to record cops.

    He's a jackass and irrelevant. Probably just trying to make points for some future political campaign.

    He wouldn't know common sense if it kicked him in the nads.

    ...

    THERE NEEDS TO BE COMMON SENSE GUN CONTROL REFORM IN TEXAS!"

    Sounds like in the course of a sermon press release, he has sussed this whole thing out already. Bully for him. Now piss off.

    From further down in the screed:

    "Tonight, I will go home and I will rest my hands and my face on the tops of my children's heads. We will say our prayers and we will hug and I will thank God for them. For many families in Charlottesville, Sandy Hook, Killeen, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs and across America, that will not happen. "

    This clown can't even keep his tragedies straight. I see he really wrings his hands over them.
