Texas Senator Boo’ed At Texas Convention, Not Ted Cruz, Go Figure

H/T Scissorhead Bruce388

The senior Senator from Texas, John Cornyn, was greeted with love as he took to the state at the Texas GOP convention yesterday:

Can you feel the love?

You see, any deviation from gun orthodoxy is treason to the Republicans. They continued to heckle and boo Cornyn even while he told them, in effect, that he was sabotaging the recent gun negotiations:

“Democrats pushed for an assault weapons ban, I said no,” Cornyn said. “They tried to get a new three-week mandatory waiting period for all gun purchases, I said no. Universal background checks, magazine bans, licensing requirements, the list goes on and on and on. And I said no, no, 1,000 times no.”

Once he pulls his usual Lucy-and-the-Football stunt and tanks the bipartisan negotiations and owns the Libs he will return to being their golden boy. As there are no US Senate elections in Texas in 2022, he has all the time he needs to return to the Gundamentalists good graces.

    If I was there I’d be booing him too, but for different reasons. I believe in strict gun control legislation, even though I own a few guns. Asking a young man or woman to wait a few years to buy a gun is not an infringement upon their 2nd Amendment rights. These weapons of war being carried by unstable young men on our public streets should not be tolerated in a civil society, but I guess that’s the rub. By all appearances we are not civilized…

    I see retirement in his future. I also see a dead republican fundamentalist walking.

    The 2nd amendment was passed in order to keep black people in chains, and was necessary to get Southern States to sign on to the Constitution. It allowed for the formation of slave patrols, to be paid for by the federal government. Carl Bogus wrote about this for a Law Review

    So this individual’s right to bear arms is not supported by the Constitution. In the 1970s, the NRA was afraid to have the question before the Supreme Court, because they thought that the NRA would lose

    America’s inability to regulate the sale and use of military-grade weapons due to the childish fantasies of a minority of citizens is proof that we are ruled by idiots.

    Sorry W.B. Yeates, but when it comes to Texas, “What can I but enumerate old themes”? I know there are many nice people from Texas, but I just can’t stand the place because of its right-wing, know-nothing politics, utterly slimy politicians, and effed-up social values. To me, it epitomizes the cultural and moral wasteland that is conservative America. Call me a coastal elitist if you must, but:

    I say, I wouldn’t live there if you paid me.
    I couldn’t live like that, no siree!
    I couldn’t do the things the way those people do.
    I wouldn’t live there if you paid me to.

    The plain truth is our basic problems ain’t going to be solved by anything you can get 60 senators from this congress to agree on. The basic problem in our country is Republicans, and their collaborators.

    Scratch up a few bills, short and sweet. Universal background checks, no “long gun” purchases until age 21, real regulation of “civilian” weapons of war. Force a vote on cloture for each. Stick those votes to ’em every day between now and November. Hard. And every time schoolkids get massacred by a kid with an AR-15, immediately accuse them of being accomplices to those murders. Make them own it, every single time. That hour, while the blood is still wet on the classroom floor.

    The real solution to the gun problem is the same as all the rest — fight to elect 268 representatives and 60 senators who will pass a bill to solve it, and a president who will sign it.

    Act like you want to win, instead of like Charlie Brown. Act like they’re the problem. We’re running out of time.
