    Sometimes it's the best way to respond. After all, and correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't the tampons which were confiscated concealed carry?

    the Texas tribune is a liberal publication and we all know liberal publication will obscure and manipulate the truth
    Just stop. Truth is dependent on belief systems... facts are not. There is not ONE commercial, widely consumed outlet for "news" that is not manipulating and obscuring in order to pander to ideological and party loyalists... ON BOTH SIDES. If you agree with it, it's truth, if you don't, it's dangerous manipulated propaganda. I can't think of anything more lame.

    Horse-feathers. Why was it in question? Because standing armies are DANGEROUS to domestic peace. And if you read the extensive works (letter, opinions, etc), you'll find that gun ownership is indeed sacred. Why? Because without weapons we are without recourse to defend ourselves against a historical constant of all ages, eras, gov'ts, and men of ambition without a single exception... all gov'ts become tyrannically oppressive to the masses. Again and again and again, by founder after founder, we were warned that we have more to fear from our own gov't and it's army than we do from any foreign power. This hasn't changed in 10,000 years... why do you think it's different now?

    Actually I knew that the initial report was a press release. I am having difficulty weighing that against a followup report on what the officers themselves said.

    Anyway, I don't about you but I'm all feced out. Seriously, I don't think I've said the word "feces" as many times in my life as I have in this thread.

    Truly either you are really confused or dishonest in your posts... Which is it?

    The point is the "threat" to use them. If you're willing to confiscate tampons because of some twitter "threats," what if the NRA folks come armed next time?

    is coming armed a stated threat? if the protester just said we are coming with tampons and didn't mention they where going to throw them just bringing them is not a threat

    As far as I know one was strictly the PD and the other was a newspaper reporter, asking unspecified number of officers what they recall, with no info about how many were on duty there. I could be wrong by now but that is what it seemed like to me.

    really, you are afraid of a tampon? It is not like the texas legislature works year round, have some of them sweep up. It would be good for them to actually do some labor. Seriously, had they just stuck to fair rules and lost like they deserved to for improper planning they would not even be in session. If you want to ticket them for littering or arrest them for disturbing the peace for throwing a tampon then that is fine. You are one of the pro-gun crowd. Do you support taking guns away from people because they might do something wrong with it? Just like a gun, if the women misuse their tampons by throwing them at the chickencrap texas legislature then you fine them in accordance with the law. This was just a spiteful thing to inconvenience women who were giving them trouble. The texas republicans hate women, and that is the only reason to take away a hygene product that is designed to avoid bleeding. It is very specific to women and their bodies and they knew it when they were doing it. No one is going to be hurt by being hit with a tampon. You can let that happen and then arrest the person responsible.
