    I don't agree with Paxton much, but I do agree with him on this. They should not be forced to close.

    I'd just limit the amount of people that can be in the store at once. You don't want a big group getting their dirty mitts all over the glass counters and merchandise at once and pumping out potentially infected exhales in close proximity to employees and other customers. Setup a number system outside like it's a deli, and go from there.

    I feel pretty certain that the greatest majority of people who do not agree with this are not "real Texans". Though I do know a few.

    Of course two of them at one time when we found our selves out later than we expected one night did ask me if I was indeed carrying.

    Guess I am more concerned with the vast number of new owners who purchased firearms in the last couple of weeks and have never in their life even held a firearm.

    I do find some solace in that many of these new owners were not able to find and purchase ammunition due to the latest run on ammo.

    I agree with that article. However Gov. Abbott missed the boat on stopping the spread of COVID-19 in Texas. He needed to have health screeners and checkpoints on the Texas border with other states to keep sick people out. This should have been done at airports, train stations, and bus terminals. That should have been done in early January in Texas.

    From what I know there are still no state health screeners in place.

    At my son’s refinery in Sulphur, LA, they are checking and screening everyone at the gate when the workers come in. If you have fever, they turn them around and send them home.

    Anyone with a daycare facility knows that parents will pump their kids full of acetaminophen to keep fevers down when they drop off, so they don't have to deal with their own sick kids. I would think people wanting to come in through the airport would be popping Tylenol and the same thing with workers. The mentality is 'it is all about me, not those I infect'.

    I agree that it is necessary to be able to protect your family during an emergency. Look at the way people horded toilet paper. You need to be able to protect your family when people go nuts.

    I think in their haste, Texas officials including the governor missed an opportunity to clarify for every county in Texas what constitutes an essential business. They should have defined it, and then passed it down to the counties, telling them that here are the essential businesses, and you can do what you please around these - but you may not change these at all. That would have put it in stone for every county, including ones run by liberals who will always jump at the chance to take away your second amendment rights.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
