    Gov. Wayne Abbott? ABC News should get the Texas governor’s name right. Makes you wonder what other details of the story may have been misreported.

    And what holds the republic together? It for damned sure is not the courts, DA, or cops; those have eroded into minions doing the bidding of whomever is in charge. It is people living under the voluntary agreement to behave in one’s own self-interest and at the same time not harm others. The “self-interest” part often includes egalitarian, charitable, and generous acts; neighborly behavior that doesn’t intrude on anyone’s privacy. You know, the Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, Make Room for Daddy kind of stuff. The exact subjects your prog English teacher in high school sneered at.
    “You can’t be here without authorization” and “Lemme see some ID” and “Where are you going?” is a direct line to “Some are more equal than others”. As I’ve oftenrepeated: it’s a small club and you ain’t in it brother.
    This shit is getting far too commonplace and my confidence in the near and far future is too shaky for my comfort.

    “Makes you wonder what other details of the story may have been misreported.”
    Bunny, the report did refer to “armed rifles”, which sounds as scary as “armed grenades” and “armed torpedos”.

    My state, Alaska, has a no guns in banks or bars law, generally interpreted to mean inside the premises, not outside in the parking lots.

    I’ll have to check the wording to see if they can stretch it because if they can, sooner or later they will. For example our DUI laws; cops have told me, why yes they can go on to private property and arrest someone mowing their lawn with a riding mower with a can of beer for driving a motor vehicle under the influence.
