It’s amusing watching the left leaning political media go all ga-ga about the Democratic Party having a chance to win statewide in Texas next year. They seem to have forgotten that Texans are, by and large, and by a large percentage, for the Second Amendment and the freedom that it undergirds.
It might well be, and probably is, that the Texas political media is against the Second Amendment. After all, they are “enlightened” and certainly know what is best for the rest of us.
But as they say, a picture says a thousand words.

Stephen P. Halbrook in National Review Online reminds us of what happens when a government forces gun registration on their citizens:

In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”
During the five years of repression that followed, society was “cleansed” by the National Socialist regime. Undesirables were placed in camps where labor made them “free,” and normal rights of citizenship were taken from Jews. The Gestapo banned independent gun clubs and arrested their leaders.
Us ordinary Texans may not be as “enlightened” as the political media in Texas. But one thing we do know is that electing Democrats to statewide office will lead to restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and eventually lead to our destruction.
