Texas Legislature Holds Firm And Refuses To Pass Gun Restrictions

From Bearing Arms:

Culture Is The Problem, Not Guns

From The Federalist:

Americans are losing interest in the purpose and community that faith and church offer, losing respect for the sanctity of human life, and losing sight of the notion that a higher moral good exists than immediate self-gratification.
