    Hello All,

    I haven’t been able to tune in for months now, but hearing your voice and your sensibility made me so happy today. Until we got to the part of your episode that said (and I’m paraphrasing) ‘normal citizens don’t need assault weapons’. I understand that you feel safe where you are. I DO NOT feel safe in TEXAS. People down here talk about revolution daily. They HATE any democrat, to the point where people are scared to display Vote Blue Signs… I feel like I am in danger everyday for speaking my mind. Does it stop me? A little. I don’t display my TST stickers or wear the TST shirts. When I sent to the voting polls, they were FILLED with Trumpeters that made it nearly impossible to get in without sharing their germs. Spitting and yelling at me to get out of the church in which we were voting! More so, I’m self employed, I would expect my business to crash and burn? Maybe literally!

    Considering last Jan6… considering the SCOTUS that now has control… considering the most recent arson attempt on TST headquarters, I feel like I am in actual danger. In addition, my children are in actual danger if they say they are Atheist at school! In the classroom, shunned and pointed out for not saying the Pledge, their mom protesting in front of the courthouse, etc…

    I want and need my ‘people killing machines’ in order to protect myself and my family against the largest state in the lower 48. This is not a joke, some states have lost their minds!. This is so scary and serious. Lets make limits on guns but do not take my right to mow down a lynch mob of Christians if need be!

    I should have used the word republicans instead of Christians. Both are scary and most are full of hate, but the Trumpsters I believe are the true threats to my family’s safety.
