We were going to do a post on this Wednesday, but by then “Prairie Populist” Jay Leeson had protected his tweets. It seems he’s come around and unprotected his account, so we’ll share with everyone his temptation to unholster and pistol whip any Texas he sees taking advantage of the state’s new open carry law in places where families are present.
If tomorrow you wear a gun exposed in a public place where families and kids are around, I’m gonna be real tempted to unholster you, pistol whip you, and teach you some West Texas manners. #txlege @The87thTxlege

Based on his profile picture, I’m going to go with “No, there’s no way this keyboard warrior would do any of that.” pic.twitter.com/RqIFvcVd9a

He’ll be tempted to. He might even fantasize about it quietly.

So you'll commit assault in front of families and kids if someone abides by a new law you don't like? Sounds iffy, legally speaking.

If you are trying to "unholster" someone in public you are the lethal threat to the people around you.

Oh, Jay, I'm a grandma and I'm pretty damn sure you could not 'unholster' me! Please, please, do not attempt that with any actual men.

Your terms are agreeable.
Now I just have to get to West Texas.
— Thomas (@HylandrT) September 1, 2021
Well, give ‘er a try and let us know how it goes
— Eddie Horosho (@RealHorosho) September 2, 2021
Oh please do try. I would love to see this unfold.
— nbright👀 (@ArgenBrightLife) September 2, 2021
Let us know how that works out for you Jay, I mean, I doubt you'll be able to tell us anything after attempting such a thing, but if you somehow are still capable, we would love an update.

I don't think you represent West Texas like you think you do..

If tomorrow you try and steal my property and assault me in a public place where families and kids are around, I'm going to be real tempted to show you this wonderful jujitsu that i'm learning, and teach you some North Texas manners.

You seem like a real tough customer. I no longer live in the great state of Texas. Wish I did. I'm an old man now. But I think I'd take you up on your offer.

Cop: so what happened here?
"I don't know, this guy came up to me and tried to unholster my weapon while screaming about West Texas manners, twitter and pistol whipping me in front of my kids, so I had to defend myself."
Cop: Fair enough, we have this cleaned up shortly.

Open carry used to be considered honest and concealed carry sneaky.

Please do. In fact, if you tell me where you live I'll make the opportunity available to you.

Based on this pic, 🤔 I’m certain his idea of “unholster” and “pistol whip” are not what most of us think it means. pic.twitter.com/xsQqHBnbDh

What a ratio.
CNBC’s John Harwood would also call the cops on the guy practicing open carry in a coffee shop https://t.co/pzuIiqVn4a
