This is how people in marginalized communities and people of color get killed. Shoot first, ask questions later if you think someone is stealing your stuff.

Shame on every Texas lawmaker who voted for this dangerous, dumb bill. #txlege  https://www.dallasnews.com/news/texas-legislature/2019/05/26/texas-just-passed-bill-letpeoplecarry-guns-full-week-after-natural-disasters 

In fact, after Katrina, the @NRA began encouraging gun owners to become armed vigilantes after a disaster, regardless of the risks to citizens and first responders.  https://www.nraila.org/articles/20150821/a-decade-later-remember-new-orleans-gun-confiscation-can-and-has-happened-in-america 

The bill passed, 16-15. @GovAbbott, this bill is dangerous and does not deserve your signature. #txlege
