Journalists In Texas Packing Heat, Just Like Everyone Else

Things they don't teach you in journalism school: Reporters in Austin are taking concealed handgun classes so they can use the express lane when they need to enter the Texas Capitol. "The theory, apparently, is that people licensed to pack heat have undergone a thorough background check and can be waved right through." (You will also learn why some Texans carry more than one gun at a time.)

Before today, I was positive my friend who took the Texas bar exam was lying when he said the third day was for marksmanship. Now … not so sure.

So much undermining goes on at the Dallas News, it's quite amusing – such as this closing line: "You can trust us. We're journalists. And we're armed."
