    Recently, Gov. Perry came out and said that the safety of Texans wasn't improved by preventing CHLs from carrying on college campuses, schools and other places on the prohibited list.

    I've seen two local news programs (WFAA and FOX) report these comments with a bit of an eyeroll and practically an incitement to riot for viewers (though FOX to its credit did have a local talk radio guy there to defend the comments). I am sure that the Governor is hearing from the people who were unhappy with those comments.

    Let's make sure that despite whatever differences you might have had with his other policies, that he knows you support this one.

    Texans, support your governor on this, please.

    We've got CCW in schools in Utah, and it looks like we might be able to get Tennessee. We get Texas, and the flood gates are thrown open.

    Now it is up to you to pressure you legislators for this.

    I'm going to suggest the same thing that some of did in Utah, and more recently some members have done in Tennessee.

    We all know that mailed letters are more valuable than e-mails. So write a letter, be rather general. Don't sign it. Then make thirty photo-copies. Take those to your friends who agree with you, but are too lazy/apathetic to do it themselves. Have them sign it, and give you money for a stamp.

    Boom. You just had 30 times the impact.

    Sent him an email -

    "While I currently live in New Hampshire, I'll always be a Texan. Thank you for your support for lifting the pointless restrictions placed upon law-abiding Texas CHL holders - especially the "no schools" clause which denies honest citizens from protecting themselves while on campus grounds. As you've pointed out, criminals and psychopaths don't heed such weapon bans. Allowing trained CHL holders to carry everywhere makes mass murdering sprees far less likely to succeed. I hope to move back to Texas someday soon. Please keep up the good fight!"

    Star-Telegram in Fort Worth just printed 3 letters in the "letters to editor" section (on Monday) that all supported Perry's thoughts on right to carry. I would urge all of you (especially Texans!!) to go to their website (under Opinion/Letters to the Editor) and dash off a quick little letter also in support so that they really get the message!!!
