Tampons and Condoms and Guns, oh my!

Troopers confiscated tampons, pads, and condoms fearing they could be thrown in protest. Those with concealed weapons permits could still bring in their firearm. The headline is not inaccurate. 

I don’t think those statements are related, though. Look at them separately. 

• Standing procedure no matter what the issue is: no projectiles, and pay attention to ones that make a statement. If a quarry is an issue, look for rocks or marbles. If it’s taxes, no rolls of coins. If it’s about reproductive health – yeah, they decided no tampons, pads, and condoms. I think that was a gross overreaction on their part. An unused tampon isn’t going to hurt anyone if it’s flung. But, they were probably unwilling to stray from procedure. I disagree with THIS part, this decision.

• Guns go everywhere in TX, why would this be any different? 

People are bringing in an unrelated topic to stir the poo again, I think. Like the cathedral in France and the churches in the South; I guess you can make that correlation but I certainly wouldn’t have.
