Austin is a strange place for sure , plenty of fine folks there also but some who need to be on 6th st. I live west of Ft. Worth so I have a saying I go to FW it's like being in the country and OR TEXAS but if you cross over and go to Dallas then you might have well just gone to New York.or CHICAGO Where did those folks come from.
... I guess what I hate worse is they bring their liberal ideal and try to impose them on us.
.....Take I 35 north or 40 west to the left coast.

Austin is our capital and adds much historical significance to Texas, but is definitely deserves the title of San Francisco South. Seems as though the treehuggers and hippies from the 60's got lost on their journey to CA and decided to stay in Austin.

Actually, that's about right.

Every citizen should take a weapons training class and learn how to fire handguns for protection. Be safe AND own personal handgun.

Really? I wouldn't think that 'good folks'; who bought their own guns cause they wanted them would show up and hand them over for far less than they purchased them for. Cause as a 'good folk' I know the old saying as stated previously...When guns are outlawed only the outlaws will have guns.

There was no taxpayer money involved. Other than a police presence, that is.

The only people that turned in their guns were people who didn't want them and probably got them from someone else, like a deceased husband or handed down from grandpa.

This program, while not something I agree with, didn't cost the Tax payers money. The program was funded from a grant. The idea for this comes from commefornia. And no, I don't think it works
