Do you want the bugman, Tom DeLay, carrying a firearm? Because of his legal problems here in Texas, Fort Bend County Justice of the Peace Jim Richard suspended the bugman's right to carry a concealed weapon. The Texas Department of Public Safety had presented a copy of the bugman's indictment to the Justice of the Peace and asked that the license be suspended. Neither the bugman nor his attorney were at the January 26th hearing.
But now the bugman wants his gun back. On March 14th, the bugman's attorney filed court papers to appeal the suspension of the license. Once again, the bugman thinks the laws are for others and should not apply to him. After all, he has already told us, "I am the government".
Some people want us to believe that the poor bugman is being mistreated by that mean old prosecutor in Travis County. At the latest "War on Christians" rally, Rev. Rick Scarborough compared the bugman's troubles to Jesus' crucifixion and said "God always does his best work after a crucifixion". What is wrong with these people?
The bugman is not a martyr and he is not being mistreated. He is a criminal who is being called to task for his crimes. Texas law says no gun permit for those indicted or convicted of a crime. This law applies to everyone, bugman included.
