RRC Chair, executive director say they’ll take the class themselves
Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman has enlisted the National Rifle Association to conduct an agency-wide concealed handgun class for any employee who wants to pack heat while at work or while carrying out the commission’s duties.

“We hope to put this in place fairly quickly,” Smitherman said at the commission’s open meeting Tuesday. “We’re hoping that the rates are very competitive.

Pack a pistol.

Like gov fair hair, afraid of a little coyote what a p*ssy. SMITHERMAN would be a good choice for the energy industry – a true puppet.

Smitherman is always shouting off his mouth so he should be afforded the same ability to shoot off his foot. Probably should keep his bullets in his pocket like Barney Fife.

That RRC is a bunch of very bad, and dangerous dudes.

I wonder if he will attend the Dick Cheney School of Shotgun Hunting Safety as well?

Yet, Elizabeth Burns was forbidden by restraint order from packing heat in a dangerous part of Texas

Smitherman has double guns….one that shoots bullets and can kill upon impact, the other gun allows perferations into the cement casings so the gas can flow, but the impact of these underground explosions is a slow motion disaster and will never get the proper attention. The public lambs and bought out politicians ignore the threats to our underground drinking water supplies.
