Default How can we get Texas to do this?

Basically Florida is working to increase the penalties for riots, assaulting police, "peaceful protests" (that are anything but peaceful).

The objective is to stand behind the police with a "strong legislative response".

Anyone know how we can get Texas to do the same?

I am fairly certain there are plenty of laws in place to put rioters in prison for a long time. As long as the DA has the intestinal fortitude to do so...

Our legislature doesn't go back into session until next year, unless the Governor (and only the Governor) calls a special session. He won't do that, because he knows they'd vote down his stupid mask mandate.

First thing to do is vote out the RINO's and put real conservatives in office, starting with the governor. If we can do that, we don't need any new legislation. We just need to make it clear that we the people and our legislature and governor are 100% behind our LEO's. They have plenty laws and the LEO's can squash this crap like a bug if the hand-cuffs are removed... We wouldn't even have to say "sic-um!"

I'm against it.

Treading on diminishing the rights to a peaceful assembly. A couple bad actors doesn't mean the entire thing is a riot.

I'd view this with the same fervor of someone trying to take apart the 2a law by law.

Same. The laws exist. The problem is selectively pursuing them.

With the proof of supplies and more and more organizational activities they should RICO these anarchists. I’m sure a case can be made.
