Seguin Gun & Pawn owner Richard Mergele displays a .44 magnum revolver on Thursday inside his store at 410 E Gonzales St. in Seguin. Mergele said he supports open carry legislation though he wouldn’t do it himself. 

Seguin residents voice thoughts on open carry

SEGUIN — With a bill that would allow nearly a million Texans licensed to carry concealed weapons to holster them openly on their hip poised to pass out of the legislature and land on the governor’s desk next week, locals expressed few major concerns on the issue Thursday.

KUHN: U.S. military is not a threat to Texas
Posted: May 14, 2015

My fellow Texans, are we so fickle that our opinions can be swayed by conspiracy theorists and Internet quackery? Since when has the Lone Star State turned its back on our own sons and daughters, husbands and wives, and friends who serve OUR nation in times of war and peace? We should all be ashamed of how we’ve greeted the people who lay their lives on the lines in defense of sweet Lady Liberty.

LINDEN: More guns not a solution
Updated: May 22, 2015 - 1:42 am

Are nine dead people and 18 in a hospital as the result of gun fire enough to make us stop and wonder? Is the sight of a weapon on someone’s hip helping us to enjoy our meals more? Does knowing that a person with that gun on his/her hip has had a whole five hours of weapon training make you feel safe?

Thoughts on the tax collection dispute
Posted: May 17, 2015

The tax assessor complains in the public media about SISD not formally addressing the tax collection decision with her office.  Then, it appears that the assessor attempts to garner support from other entities — the county judge and the county’s contractor for delinquent taxes. The style mirrors the common political practice when you don’t get your way.
