EATER.COM September 18, 2017 – The Facebook page for Bee Cave patisserie Baguette et Chocolat has improbably become a war ground for gun rights activists. It all started when The Truth About Guns editor Robert Farago entered the patisserie last week with a gun, despite the fact that they prohibit open and concealed carry on the premises. When the owners noticed Farago’s gun “under his t-shirt,” they called Austin’s 311 service, which dispatched two police officers to Baguette. A few minutes after casing the…Read Full Story
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 – Never eat French pastry with a t-shirt printing. “Say wha’?!” For the non-carriers among us, ‘printing’ is the obvious revelation of a concealed gun under your clothes. That’s what Robert Farago ran into last week at a French bakery in Texas. As our top story above this HedSpace points out, Farago is the editor of The Truth About Guns.com website. Guys and gals who carry everyday – as they are prone to do in God bless the Second Amendment America – do so in the same way they put on shoes or sandals every day. It’s a habit. Farago’s habit didn’t set well with le chef de cuisine at the Baguette et Chocolat so the cops were called and asked – politely, we’re sure – for Farago to leave le premises. You can pick up the rest of the story above.
The issue here is gun carry – openly or concealed. There are advocates for both. But let it be known that Texas is not a so-called constitutional carry state. That means any one can pack heat anywhere, anytime, unless specifically prohibited by a business owner or city, county or state officials. But if you have a permit to carry a gun, you can legally carry it anywhere in Texas…even if a business owner such as the bakery in Farago’s case says it’s a politely stated no-no. Farago complied with the bakery’s wishes and, like Elvis, left the building. We doubt if he’ll show up carrying signs protesting the dispute. But we see the issue of constitutional carry as questionable. No doubt, CC is a guaranteed right. Until it isn’t. And that’s where proper decorum comes in.
Aside from the usual flap about people with gravel instead of brains in their heads have as much a constitutional right as your everyday pastor, Texas oilfield billionaire, lawmaking solon, or strong pro-gun Governor Greg Abbott, constitutional carry should come with implied manners and not in-your-face “wattayagonnadoaboutit?” attitude that we’ve seen – and heard – from some corners. While we consider gun carry a right, we think it’s also a privilege, and a privilege to be taken seriously rather than impatiently and congruously proportioned. Remember when, walking into a street café you saw a sign that said “No shirt, no shoes, no service?” That was in response to those gravel-headed gleebs from Hippieville who plied their constitutional right to spread their goober over any seat in the eatery. And, no less, that should apply to how, when, and where you carry, constitutionally or not. Now, make my donuts with sprinkles, please. And coffee.

STEVE COMUS | September 1, 2017 — The antis, if nothing else, are persistent. They attack guns and those who own and use them whenever possible, even if it means fabricating bold-faced lies, perverting partial truths and spewing out misleading innuendoes in the process.
The latest involves race. Seems as though guns and their owners are racist, according to the eight balls. How a gun can, in and of itself, have anything to do with any race escapes me, but apparently I just didn’t get the memo on the subject, or something like that. [read more]
BOB ROGERS | September 1, 2017 — Let me get this right out front: bigots are bullshit. White, black, pick a color from the rainbow; choose an orthodoxy that you believe will get you to a spiritual afterlife; I don’t care. I just don’t like your high and mighty BS.
History is precious. Without it we don’t have a clue. Where we came from, who we came from, how we got where we are now. Today. This day. Tomorrow, as well. History is the chronicle of the past and the past is full of successes and failures. Bigotry is failure. Big time. The Hatfields and the McCoys were 150 years ago; West Virginia versus “’Caintucky.” All that over who stole a pig. [read more]
SHELBY MURDOC | August 15, 2017 — The U.S. Army is looking for a new rifle that will probably use a new standard cartridge. For decades, the U.S. military has used the M16 rifle and its cousin the M4 carbine as its standard infantry weapons. The performance of U.S. troops on the field of battle over that time demonstrates the platform’s effectiveness and the lethality of the 5.56mm round. However, the rifle and the 5.56mm round have never been without critics, and it appears that time has finally caught up with the gun that began life as the Armalite AR-15. [read more]
