La Pistola y El Senador

Chingao! Texas State Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa was detained by security for carrying a 9 mm pistol into the McAllen airport. That's classic, especially considering just this spring Sen. Hinojosa sponsored new legislation creating a defense to prosecution for Texans carrying handguns in their cars.

If you don't know
El Senador Chuy, folks, this guy has big brass balls. Via PinkDome.

Hey Scott,
Since "Chuy" opposed the Task Force's & Gun Carrying Law's, maybe next time he will be caught with drugs in his briefcase.

Naaaah, a wily old ex-marine is too smart for that. The folks beating Chuy up over this are opportunistic enemies indulging in "gotcha" politics, but El Senador didn't do anything wrong -- this was an accident, much like the incident with Barry Switzer in Dallas and a hundred more you haven't heard about. Nobody would have or should have been prosecuted under those circumstances.
