Texas Senate Votes 31-0 To Let You Take Your Gun To Work

The Texas State Senate voted by 31-0 to allow people to take guns to work. 

Yep—31-0. The Democrats in the Senate voted for it as well. There are something 11 or 12 Democrats in the Senate. 

Note to Democrats—Thanks for nothing.

At current, employers have the right to ban guns on workplace property.

The measure will allow you take you gun and ammunition to work as long as you leave it in your car and as long as it is not visible in your car.

So after your layoff or after your fight with a co-worker, you’ll have a cooling down period of the time it takes you to get to your parking lot and find your car.

I wish it were so that when this law is passed by the malignancy known as the Texas Legislature and signed by our terrible governor, that every person who voted for it could be prosecuted as an accessory to murder when the first person with access to a gun at work kills somebody.

I would double-charge all the Democrats who voted for the bill since I expect nothing from Republicans in any event.

31-0. Imagine that.

  1. This incredibly stupid bill will probably also pass the House.

  2. Yeah—I should have mentioned that. I guess I just figure that this being Texas that folks will guess that whatever stupid can happen will happen.

  5. Sam–Just imagine if you woke up one morning and read that the Texas Senate had taken steps to restrict guns. You’d keel over in shock.

    Maybe the Texas Senate took this step to assure us that there are things we can count on even in an ever-changing world.

    Bill–If I did that than people might start shooting at each other more if they knew they would not really kill anybody.

    Or, knowing the people had bullet proof clothes on, folks would upgrade to higher power weapons.

  6. You people are seriously stupid.If you look at current events I.E maritime law states you cannot have fire arms aboard ships and look at all of the kidnappings and murders happening because of unarmed crew. I guarantee if the crews were armed there would be a lot less piracy. Also if you take the guns away from the citizens then the bad guy law breakers will still have guns you morons.The problem isn’t the guns it is that we need tougher punishments for the idiots that do commit crimes with guns.Do not take the ability for lawbiding citizens to defend them selves. THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!
