    Contrariwise, if there is known intel that protesters plan to throw certain types of items, preventing them from bringing those items in prevents them from misusing said items.


    Totally different.
    So if somebody says "let's all throw our bras", are you going to force everyone to give up their bras? What about underwear? What about shoes? If somebody says, "let's all spit!", are you going to have everyone muzzled? I bet if someone said "let's all throw condoms, your boys wouldn't have forced men to give up condoms if they were carrying them.

    Dude, no matter how much you want to excuse the actions of the ones who were SO afraid - of friggin' TAMPONS - their actions are inexcusable. Period.

    It's time for a few words from Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys:

    Bud, you want to take a partisan position that this was laughably stupid, and that's what you're doing, including resorting to hyperbole. If they hadn't done this and had gotten pelted with tampons, you'd be laughing about THAT, because that is what hyperpartisans do. I have no dog in this fight; I am not a Texan and barely any more fond of the GOP than I am the Dems. I'm just pointing out that it isn't quite as crazy and you're making it out to be, so pardon me for trying to interject a little sense.

    I'll take a loaded gun over a tampon anytime. If I need a tampon later, well, I have a loaded gun. Who will refuse me?

    Yeah, you cannot have tampons which have a use for women, but you can have a gun which according to you has absolutely no use for law abiding citizens in the legislature. That really is a bit absurd. You are right, there is a big difference in between a product women might need to make use of, and something that is about as useful as a rock. But in texas you cannot get involved in someone's gun, but every politician can stick his nose into a woman's vagina which they seem to have no business in since they cannot figure out what tampons are for.

    have you seen a tampon before? There is about zero opportunity to be harmed buy one if thrown. maybe you are exceptionally frail or not aware of what a tampon actually is, but i am pretty sure women have things to throw that might actually cause concern. Besides, how far could one actually throw a tampon? Those things do not have weight to them. that is pretty damned wussy to be afraid of the tampons.

    As has been observed, our elected reps have the right not to be assaulted while doing their jobs. You don't seem to understand the law, the rules of conduct in a legislature, or civility. You also don't seem to be aware that the state troopers also jars of paint, urine, and feces which were going to be thrown at the senators. It's called "assault," and no, you don't get to throw things.

    A person gets pelted with tampons it is funny and there is really no chance of injury. I am pretty sure i could do more damage spitting at you than chucking a tampon. Seriously, I could probably chuck a whole full box of tampons at you and you would not be harmed. It is very silly to take away bits of string and cotton type of material, but a loaded firearm is OK. they can feel glad women are not like pro-life people and willing to just murder people who oppose them. If it were a bunch of pro-life religious people i would recommend worrying about the guns.

    Tampons and other women hygiene thingings have caused more damage to America's plumbing systems than guns.
    Just ask Joe the Plumber.
