News From Austin

…where the Texas Legislature is doing the People’s bidding:

Earlier today, the House approved Senate Bill 19, by an 86-60 vote, that discourages banks, payment processors, insurers, and other financial services providers from discriminating against members of the firearm and ammunition industries. The legislation prohibits businesses that engage in this practice from contracting with governmental entities in the Lone Star State. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to benefit the bottom-line of corporations that are actively working to erode the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans. The measure, a priority of Lt. Governor Patrick, now goes back to the Senate for consideration of House amendments.

Hubba hubba.  And if this passes, and one of those bastards ever tries to mess with my gun purchases or anything like that, it’s to the TxAG’s office I’ll be sending my next email.
