August 20th ... the TNG Staff Judge Advocate’s office had briefed guardsmen they would not be allowed to carry personal weapons while off duty during the deployment, even if they had a concealed carry license or were a certified peace officer in their civilian professional duties.

General Nichols said, “Actually, that was a federal policy we were looking at. We have applied the state laws so they can.”

“The main thing is,” Nichols explained, “I don’t want personal firearms on duty. We have duty weapons for that and duty weapons training.”

“It is the right of Texas citizens, if they're allowed to,” he concluded, “...carry firearms when they are not on duty.”

Texas National Guard Reverses Position

OPINION: That Washington "federal Policy" is ... "Pure Crap"

( i.e. another 'Hooray!' for Texas )

Gotta keep the true patriots unarmed, so if # hits the fan, they aren't worrying which side their troops are on when they give the order to shoot the civilians, didn't cha know?

Thats why they call it concealed carry, concealed, so no one can see it, like in secret. So no one should know you have it. No one should ever find out you have it on you until you have to use it and that means your life was on the line anyways...trial by twelve or carried by six?

Or it can do with the number of TNG stationed at the border. I am sure some of those guys are just looking for an excuse to get some pay back....

I say the border wall needs to be as big as the one in Pacific Rim. With sensors on the top and bottom. The wall also has to go down some good 50 feet bellow the ground. Automatic Gun turret emplacements that fire on any motion in proximity to the border. (We have the technology). Seismic sensors to know if someone decides to blow through it. Border patrol would now only be accountable to Gun maintenance and resupply, as well as immediate response to border alarms. As for concealed weapons, i say 1 on person and an arsenal on the property....concealed, offcourse.
