On Thursday's edition of Lubbock's First News, state representative John Frullo talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in the Texas state legislature and across the nation.

In light of President Barack Obama's executive orders on gun control, Frullo said that it certainly was not the first time he was disappointed by the approach the president took to the matter. He stated that the liberals were using Sandy Hook to push their own gun agenda, and a better solution would be to allow teachers to conceal carry on campus.

 What they're doing is they're using this terrible tragedy up in Connecticut to further their gun agenda. And the way I ultimately think you stop a bad guy with a gun, and it's been said before, is to have a good guy with a gun."

Frullo also discussed the possibility of having armed guards at school, but said that option would be a bit too expensive.

Frullo also talked about the Texas legislative session, which is currently adjourned until after the presidential inauguration. So far, there have not been any major pieces of legislation passed, although new rules have been passed concerning point of order and striking down bills. The House and Senate will resume on Wednesday, January 23rd.
