To be fair, the founding fathers were also looking at a muzzle loading cannon and other arms which were, like the rifles you mention, standard military issue at the time so snark aside, I don’t think that’s an argument that bolsters your position (and frankly is beneath your usual standards); more importantly they were not granting us rights, but seeking to preserve and protect rights which exist prior to, and in the case of the colonists in spite of, the politics of the day.
Personal responsibility and parents need to be better parents, but the other things mentioned including guns are part of the problem as well.
Agreed, this is “on us”! It’s a case of being part of the solution rather than being part of the problem.
Julia M. Brittain
No moderate or conservative in their right mind would want to see anyone nominated by the Democrats other than Shelia Jackson Lee. Her district will elect a Democrat. As it now stands, the district has NO effective representation. Both sides of the isle ignore her antics. She has absolutely no clout. Should she lose the primary election to a more reasonable candidate, that person would likely have some credibility with their peers. The district would have a voice. That thought scares the GOP.
Houston History Bus engulfs riders in local lore
This is so GREAT! I have been on three of the tours with Mister McKinney’s Historic Houston and the Houston History Bus – he and the bus are just awesome. Even as a native and amateur historian I learn new and interesting things every time (BTW the tours are available for grown ups for a fee and for private events). I’m grateful these children got to enjoy such a great experience which hopefully sparks more interest in history and their own community. Many thanks to Bill Baldwin for stepping up to sponsor tours for the school, and to Mister McKinney for sharing his wealth of knowledge with so many!
