    So where is the money going to come from?

    Look, if you are afraid to own or carry a gun, thats cool with me. Its your choice. But why are you feeling a need to bash those who do?
    What leads to believe I can not handle a firearm? What insecurity is it about you that makes you jump to these conclusions?

    that isn't the issue. The issue is why you attack people on this thread who are pro gun

It is high time that we reassess what freedom means; we have our full set of constitutional rights unless and until they are taken away after due process of law. The moronic concept that we must now prove ourselves worthy, in the eyes of our gov't masters, to obtain individual constitutional rights seems a bit short of freedom.
    Wow. That sucks, esp for the 'great state of TX,' bastion of the conservative and cowboy.

    Here it's $55, shall-issue, and no training (=$$$) required. I'd like to think the $55 is what's needed for administrative costs...heck it only took 5 days for mine to arrive so maybe they paid for Fed Ex

    Actually, the state of Texas was a democratic state the vast majority of its history, there are forces at work to turn it back now.

    From the Texas State Historical Association:

    The history of the party in Texas can be divided into two major periods. In the first period, from independence in 1836 through the presidential election of 1952, the Democratic party in Texas was the only viable party in the state. It dominated politics at all levels. In the second major period, after 1952, the party faced a growing challenge to its control of state affairs from the once ineffective Republican party. Both of the major periods, however, can be subdivided. The years 1836 through 1952 divide into six subsections: from independence in 1836 through the Civil War, Reconstruction,qqv the late 19th Century, the Progressive Era, the 1920s, and the New Deal-World War II era. The latter period divides into three subsections: the 1950s, the 1960s, and the 1970s and 1980s.

    I agree with the 2nd part of that sentence but very much disagree with the first...quite a few states put up many road blocks to acquiring cc permits. For example, $$$ (beyond basic administration, like $240 for TX..."before" paying for training), expensive/extensive training requirements, local sheriff approval in "may issue" states, May Issue states in general, and most ridiculous of all, 6 to 18 month waiting periods before receiving permits. I find the last completely uncalled for and deliberately obstructionist.

    For those of us who have been deployed to combat zones, lived in high-crime areas, are or have been law enforcement, or have had something happen to their family, it's more like a nightmare than a Chuck Norris movie. But hey, Chuck Norris did once parallel park a train, so I don't want to take away from his fantasy.
