Library's "Drag Story Hours" are more deadly than guns in Texas

From the great land of nincompoopery comes one more. Before we show the issue, lets look at a few Texas statics (from: TxGunSense.com)

Texas Firearm Deaths

  • There were more than 4,000 gun-related deaths in Texas in 2020.
  • In 2019, 61% of all Texas suicides were by firearm. 
  • In 2019, nearly 73% of veteran suicides in Texas were by firearm according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • In 2020, 183 women in Texas were killed by a male intimate partner—67% of those murders were by firearm.
  • Women in Texas are 24% more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in other states.
  • In 2019, at least 32 Texan children ages 0-17 died in unintentional shootings.


And so, clearly, Drag Story Hours in libraries and Drag Brunches are what Texan politicians must regulate.

FYI - Deaths at Drag Events in 2020 - Zero, 2021 -Zero, 2022 -Zero

The current definition of “sexually oriented businesses” includes any venue where two or more people perform nude and alcohol is served. Those businesses are bound by special limitations, including a misdemeanor charge on par with vehicle burglary for the business owner if anyone under age 18 is let in. Patrons must be charged entrance fees of at least $5 at such venues, according to Texas statutes.
