Why I Hate HB 901

Open handguns prohibited texas sign k2 0012 u6xk0g
As the New Year dawned in Texas, another example of idiotic Texas GOP governance took effect as the ammosexuals danced with glee.

The loophole ridden HB 901 took effect that allows the open carry of guns across the state, and is so convoluted it is practically unenforceable.  However, if a business doesn't want open carry handguns on their property, they must post a Section 30.07 sign alerting the gun toters of that fact.

As a TransGriot public service, here's a list of the Houston area establishments that will ban open carry of handguns compiled by Kyle Nielsen, Phaedra Cook and Darla Guillen.

There's also this graphic making the rounds of a card people can leave for business who are trying to straddle the fence between sane Texans and the ammosexuals.  

I know I'm not hanging around any place in which ammosexuals show up with guns and I don't know what their intent is, especially in light of the fact we had a 1991 mass shooting at a Luby's in Killeen. TX.  

I'm also careful when I drive because of the possibility of a road rage incident escalating into gun violence.  Got a reminder of it on New Year's Eve in Denton when 20 year old Sara Mutschlechner, a University of North Texas coed acting as a designated driver for her friends, was shot and later died in a road rage incident.

I also have another reason hate HB 901 and be nervous about its implementation after what recently happened at a Biloxi. MS Waffle House when an ammosexual with a short fuse shot and killed a waitress for telling him to put out his cigarette and all the anti-Black, anti-Muslim, anti-trans, and anti-Latino hatred being stirred up on the GOP presidential nomination trail.

Until all the uncertainty sowed by HB 901 is sorted out by the courts, may be doing a lot more drive through in restaurants that don't have Section 30.07 signs, or frankly, not taking my business there at all.
