Now, years later, I am actually paying the bills doing what I love. I'm lucky enough to work with great people on both local and national radio and television. I also do a ton voice work. If you think that commercial sounded like me - it probably was me.
I'm married to Jenny, and have 4 great daughters (Sam, CJ, Gabby, and Gia), and four dogs.
I love my family - cars, sports, movies, computers - well, all electronics and Chinese Buffet. I don't know if you heard, but you pay one price and eat all you want...
A measure introduced by an East Texas lawmaker would allow students to make the standard Concealed Handgun License course an elective class in high school, 1200 WOAI news reports.
The measure by State Rep. James White (R-Tyler) would allow school districts to 'offer to student sin grade nine or above an elective course on firearm safety, training, and history.'
Of course, the students would not be able to get their actual CHL until they turn 21, just as it is today.
White's course would stress 'the history and importance of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, and to teach respect for and proper use of firearms.'
He says the course will include actual training in the use of pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns, taught by a qualified CHL instructor or a police officer, as well as training in firearm safety, instruction on firearm maintenance and cleaning, and instruction on hunter safety.
White's bill is the latest in a long string of bills introduced in the Legislature since the Sandy Hook school shooting in December which attempt to make schools safer, while not restricting access to firearms by law abiding people.
Other proposals have included creating a 'school marshal' program, allowing teachers to be armed, and freeing up funding for each school building to hire a full time certified police officer.
