    That's the proposal that has repeatedly been advocated by Republicans. Since the Republican controlled Texas legislature allows loaded shotguns into the capital building, and Republicans advocate pursuing second amendment solutions to silence discourse, then the protesters should act on the recommendations of Republicans. Certainly someone like you, a self identified conservative, shouldn't have a problem with a Republican advocated solution to discourse.

    Maybe we need a "right to bear feminine hygeine products" amendment.
    It's funny how you all dislike the idea of people having guns until the suggestion of shooting Republicans gets made, then it's all about the 2nd amendment. Lol.

    So you're just going to keep repeating the feces/urine thing and refuse to substantiate it, huh?

    I could never work with the public like that. If some bitch ever threw a tampon at me, I would pick it up, walk over to her and make her eat it.

    And how many liberals here have complained about the confiscation of 'jars of feces'?

    ZERO.

    But when it comes to tampons and maxi-pads still in the wrapper...

    HORROR! IT'S A TAMPONADO! IT'S A MAXI-PADNADO! EVERYBODY TAKE COVER!!!! Hey! There's a woman with a tampon still in the wrapper! Get her!!!!

    Oh, you, sir, the sociopath that's carrying an AR-15 with lots of extra banana-clips of ammo, you can go right on ahead, you're good to go....

    Left wing logic at it's finest.

    Enough with the ridiculousness. Nobody was "getting" anyone. They made them drop their tampons in a box. That is ALL.

    At which point you would be rightly prosecuted by the state for assault. If you had instead reported her for simple assault, you could have made your point...but by physically assaulting her yourself, it's you who has become the villain.

    The tampons and maxi-pads are STILL personal property. The idea that the state would confiscate such from everyone carrying any - while allowing idiots with loaded guns to walk freely by - is ludicrious.

    Ahhh so cotton and cardboard is the same as pitchforks and Molotov cocktails????

    Still seems awfully 'liberal' to punish all women for what a few MIGHT do....

    I didn't say ignore, but taking away female hygiene products is absurdly.... well wimpy, no other way to say it. it doesn't stop shoethrowing, or yelling, chanting or clapping... so the confiscation is bad PR.

    Now the standard for confiscation is 'inconsiderate'??? Are you really reading what you type in relationship to so many other 'over reaching gubmint' arguments the right flings at the fan hoping to make a huge distraction from lack of policy?

    Seems to me when it comes to issues that loom large for many citizens of the State of Texas some disruption is to be expected. Protest is an American as lobbyist funded 'fact finding' missions to St Croix.
