    Not sure of this one

    Hopefully because the incredible influx of immigrants from the Northeast and California have diluted the numbers of gun owners in Texas. Otherwise, I am deeply disappointed in my fellow Texans. Please try to do better! Visit a gun show near you! Support your local gun stores!

    I stumbled across this in the comments section on a Fox News article:

    Since voting and buying a gun are constitutional rights, I propose they be regarded equally, and we do one of two things. Either we make buying a gun as easy as voting, or we make voting as difficult as buying a gun.
    Interesting concept, but I wouldn't want to do either.

    Fox never misses a chance to pander to their base

    That was the base pandering to itself in response to the article......

    I was pretty shocked to see Oregon as high as it was.

    Agreed.

    Yet, I'm still hung up on the whole Pandering concept. In our society, it has beautiful sinister and dark connotations.
