Gov. Greg Abbott (R) says he supports constitutional carry for Texas and will sign legislation doing away with a permit requirement if it reaches his desk. On April 16, 2021, Breitbart News reported the Texas House passed legislation to abolish the requirement that law-abiding citizens get a permit from the state government before carrying a concealed handgun for self-defense. KVUE/ Texas Tribune notes when the legislation first appeared in the Senate, there did not appear to be enough support to pass it. However, “momentum” for passage of the legislation is now growing at an “unprecedented” rate in the state Senate. Abbott is speaking about the possibility of ending the permit requirement. On April 27, 2021, Abbott told WBAP radio that he will sign the legislation if it reaches his desk. Abbott said, “Once the Senate passes it out, the House and Senate will convene and work out any differences and get it to my desk. And I’ll be signing it.” Currently, 20 states … [Read more...] about Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Says He Will Sign Constitutional Carry Bill
Kansas lawmakers overrode Gov. Laura Kelly’s (R) veto Monday, thereby lowering the age for concealed carry from 21 to 18 years of age. The Wichita Eagle reports that the House conferred for “less than five minutes” before overriding the veto. The Lawrence Journal-World noted that the House vote was 86 to 37. The Kansas Senate overrode the veto by a vote of 31-8. Gov. Kelly claims to be pro-Second Amendment, but the Eagle noted campus carry has been a sticking point for her. When she vetoed the legislation lowering the concealed carry age, Kelly said, “We can respect and defend the rights of Kansas gun owners while also taking effective steps to keep our children and families safe. Legislation that allows more guns on campus is neither safe nor effective, and it will drive prospective students away from our schools.” State Rep. John Barker (R-Abiline) used Kelly’s veto to call her support of the Second Amendment into question. Barker said, “The governor in her … [Read more...] about Kansas Lawmakers Override Governor Veto, Lower Concealed Carry Age to 18

Ahead of Sunday’s 93rd Academy Awards, Associated Press Film Writers Jake Coyle and Lindsey Bahr share their predictions for a ceremony that is forging on in the midst of the pandemic. BEST PICTURE The Nominees: “The Father” “Judas and the Black Messiah” “Mank” “Minari” “Nomadland” “Promising Young Woman” “Sound of Metal” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” COYLE: A contemplative character study made for $5 million and populated by non-professional actors, Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” is not your typical Oscar heavyweight. And yet it’s overwhelming the favorite, a roundly acclaimed movie from an exciting auteur that has already ruled at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and, most crucially, the producers and directors’ guilds. The weirdness of this unending pandemic awards season adds a drop of uncertainty to everything. But as much as I’d like to see “Sound of Metal,”“Promising Young Woman” or “Minari” sneak in for an upset, “Nomadland” is a near-lock, and an eminently … [Read more...] about Oscars 2021 predictions: Who will win in every major category at this year’s Academy Awards?
