In an unusual display of common sense, the Texas State Capitol building security has put in an express lane for those Texas citizens with Concealed Handgun Licenses.
Yes, Gentle Readers, if you go through the training, and the background check, and the fingerprinting -- as well as coughing up the dosh -- and you decide to visit your Capitol building in Austin (with your handgun and license in paw) you have an express lane through Security.
If that doesn't warm the fuzzy little cockroaches of your heart, I don't know what will.
Do allow me to choose some select quotes:
"It's perhaps the only public building in the country where pistol-packing average Joes can walk through security undeterred."
"The general public has to get scanned at the entrances. State officials and gun toting citizenry do not."
I have no doubt that various types will most certainly get their knickers into a knot over this perfectly logical step, and for those gentle souls I have but one thing to say to reassure your timid little hearts: I-35 goes north; I-10 and I-40 go east and west. Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.
Nothing but love -- and God Bless Texas!
