Is coming to Dallas! 4-6 May!!! 🙂
And of course after the Parkland shooting, the Mayor Pro Tem, jumps on the media and says the NRA needs to go, HERE…
Now a little background… Caraway is NOT the real mayor, he’s a jumped up appointee and member of the city council, with no official voice outside the council. In other words, he’s pandering to his base. And I guess he considers $40 million to be an acceptable loss for Dallas to incur.
Of course the reality is the NRA won’t move, and were they to actually threaten to do so, a whole bunch of Dallas businesses would be camping on his desk for a retraction! Interestingly, the ‘real’ mayor of Dallas, Michael Rawlings has said nothing…
Had an interesting chat with a Delta employee this weekend, he’s an NRA member, and coming to Dallas for the NRA AM, however, he WILL NOT fly Delta! He’s looking at alternatives, and he’s apparently not the only one.
Watching the posturing by various governors over the last couple of days has NOT done anything good for my blood pressure, either. They are ‘against’ allowing teachers to be armed, want LEOs to ‘step up’, but I didn’t hear any of them coming up with money to either secure the schools, or PAY for the LEOs that it would take to actually put deputies at every school, much less any way to recruit those people in a timely fashion. LEOs are already under the gun in most locations, short staffed, underpaid, and being forced to put in a lot of overtime to cover their current duties. Now what will happen if they have to pull 10, 20, or 30 MORE officers off the streets?
One positive note, I saw this over at John’s blog, HERE. That’s a $1750 class. Kudos to Gunsite for stepping up!
I’ll be curious to see how many actually take them up on it, but I believe it’s money well ‘spent’ as it were.
