    Re: Guns Yes, Tampons NO! Welcome to Texas, Y'all!

    That is a very misleading article title.

    What actually went down sounds something like:

    "Various objects including tampons confiscated from protesters during abortion debate, to prevent their use as projectiles."

    Re: Texas Senate confiscates tampons while debating anti-abortion bill [W:155]

    Is anybody interested in the truth?

    Texas senate votes to pass measure that will toughen up abortion laws | Mail Online

    As protesters came to the Capitol building in Austin on Friday, bottles of urine and feces, and even tampons were confiscated by state troopers as they tried to prevent anything from disrupting the debate.
    ....
    However, Texas Department of Public Safety officers were reported to have found one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected of holding feces and three jars suspected to contain paint.
    If they brought jars of feces, urine and paint...imagine what might have been on the tampons? Nothing was mentioned of that though, so I'll assume the best for now. Even still, they had reason to suspect it. Isn't there a thread about how radical republicans are around here some where. When's the last time you saw a gun enthusiast throwing his/her own pooh? Sounds like someone on the level of a primate if you ask me.

    Officers, says CNN, told them some used tampons had been confiscated. Feminine hygiene products among items confiscated at Texas Capitol – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    From the sounds of things, there was apparently intent to throw involved.

    I doubt they would have confiscated them otherwise.

    Intent? I can literally have an "intent" to throw anything possible.

    This was posted a few posts up, but here I'll highlight the key paragraph:

    Texas senate votes to pass measure that will toughen up abortion laws | Mail Online

    Those attending the debate were searched, and any item that could potentially be thrown from the gallery, including tampons, were confiscated, according to the Washington Post.
    Point is, security was not inexplicably targeting tampons and other feminine hygiene items. They were taking potential projectiles.

    Anything can be a "potential projectile"... But hey remember things that can kill people such as guns were still cool but, guns dont kill people, but then i guess tampons can hurt people..

    Were any guns and bullets thrown? Did anyone take off their clothes and throw them? What about dentures? Now unless security was actually taking the tampons out of the women(!!!), tampons could also potentially be thrown. Were cell phones taken because those could be thrown as well.
