Open carry and concealed carry are legal in Texas. If you fail a background check or don’t have any training, you shouldn’t carry - and responsible gun owners and police agree. Why do you think America has a gun homicide rate that’s 25 times higher than any peer nation? #txlege https://t.co/iq46Zobc7j

Owning guns and being able to carry them are two different things. Glad to support the right of free people to protect themselves with HB 1927 this past week. Why don’t you want people to be able to protect themselves? https://t.co/D4RqOzxqID

During the last couple of legislative sessions, Texas lawmakers reduced required training, passed open carry of handguns, forced guns onto college campuses, reduced penalties for violating NO GUNS signs, and passed other laws promoting irresponsible gun ownership. Data wins. https://t.co/4oynEmWynX

Texans own among the highest number of guns per capita: at least 21 per 1,000 people. If more guns and fewer laws made Texas safer, it would be the safest state. Instead, it has high rates of gun suicide and homicide, and is home to 4 of the 10 deadliest mass shootings. #txlege https://t.co/pDe3XU6RYg

Evil exists in this world. HB 1927 gives law-abiding citizens the ability to fight back, to protect themselves and their families w/out being restricted by the govt. God bless and comfort those killed and affected by the shooting in Austin today. It’s time for us to fight back.

Sgt William Kelly, executive officer of internal affairs in the Norfolk police department in Virginia, wrote this to Kyle Rittenhouse, a teen who shot and killed Kenosha Black Lives Matter protesters: “You’ve done nothing wrong. Every rank and file police officer supports you.”

If prayers alone worked to stop gun violence, the US wouldn’t have a 25 times higher gun homicide rate than any peer nation. This year, Indiana Rep. Pence voted against background checks, closing the Charleston loophole, and reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. https://t.co/0l8JSKmkgf

I am deeply saddened by the news of the senseless act of violence that occurred at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis last night. As we continue to learn more about this heartbreaking tragedy, my prayers will be with the victims, their colleagues, friends and families.

Agreed. Here’s their take on your environmental plan. Shockingly, they’re not a fan of giving billions to big oil and buying pipelines. https://t.co/nlGYuOJnjj https://t.co/jI8bqMBu2K

.@GreenpeaceCA's take on @erinotoole's carbon tax: "...a weaker, more bureaucratic carbon pricing system that shifts money from the poor to the rich, while disingenuously claiming to be on the side of workers and against big government.” https://t.co/IhhhxjMrHQ

This 61-year-old man assaulted a Minnesota hardware store employee and hit an officer with a hammer after a mask-related dispute. He then led police on a chase and trapped an officer in his car window and drove off as he hung onto the car. The suspect was ... *arrested.* https://t.co/n7r4oZp672

A "militia" that annually kills and injures over 100,000 of the citizens it's supposed to protect is not well regulated.

For the first time EVER, the US government said Russian agent Konstantin Kilimnik provided Russian intelligence agencies with the internal Trump campaign polling/strategy data he received from Manafort and Gates in 2016. Even Mueller didn't go that far. https://t.co/wGNnHdFxRU https://t.co/O9GEjpJ0CG

Fast fact comparison:. There were 14,000+ arrests at the George Floyd protests. Only a few dozen arrests at the failed coup attemp at the capital. Almost all of the home grown terrorists just freely walked out of the building. One capital police officer took a selfie with one. https://t.co/iBpHWJZfJl

I need my twitter followers to retweet this for me. I’m a survivor of the deadliest school shooting in Texas. I’ve talked with politicians like Cruz, Murkowski, Duckworth, McBath, Fletcher. I have a voice in this fight. #VerifyRhonda @verified @Twitter

When I think about Trump, I think that people like him are remembered about as long as they deserve to be. The world is too busy to preserve dead leaves. Let the leaves fall where they may, and hope our democracy will be fertilized by their timely decay.

Other countries do not have school shootings and it’s not because they have bulletproof backpacks and police officers in every school. It’s because they prioritize the protection of their children and fellow citizens over someone’s “freedom” to kill other people
