And you call yourself a Texan!

Hooooo-eee! Meet Mayor Richard Ward of Hurst, Texas, who has become quite the burr in ol' TexasFred's saddle. Seems that Fred doesn't cotton to the Mayor's support for closing the infamous gun show loophole (see what all the fuss is about here) so Fred up and wrote a very civil, respectful, friendly, neighborly little email asking a simple question about why the Mayor would do such a thing:

How does it feel to be the ONLY Mayor in the entire state of Texas to sign on to this veiled attempt at a libber gun grab? I sincerely hope your constituents take you to the wood shed in your next election. You are a disgrace!

Guns don’t kill people
People KILL People
See? Now how could anyone take offense at such a note? As Fred sez:
I didn’t attack Mr. Ward, I asked a question and I stated an opinion. And this is what I got back;

Texas Fred,
You are as ugly as you are dumb. I suggest you at least take your picture from your web site. If you want to see a handsome dude, go to the City Of Hurst web site.

As to your question, how does it feel to be the only Mayor in Texas to be a member of MAIG. It feels wonderful. At least one mayor has the guts (actually I preferred another word) to stand up for what is right. I am sending you an attachment that I put together. You will likely have to have your wife or child read it to you. It has some big words in it. But… have it read to you with an open mind and you might realize that we are all seeking the same thing. Get the criminals and illegal guns off the streets.

My, my! Guess who won't be invited to the next Million Man Rootin' Tootin' Teabaggin' Hullapalooza at Yosemite Sam's TexasFred's place.

"Guns don’t kill people, People KILL People" See what Meleanie Hain has to say about that.

People with guns kill people.

Poor Texas Fred ;-)
