Being in Texas I take great offense to this woman’s proposal. I can’t wrap my mind around how low one’s IQ must be to reach the conclusion she reached.
Last month, Texas House Representative Terry Meza (D-105) introduced partisan Bill HB196. This bill would repeal the Texas state’s “castle doctrine.” The castle doctrine allows a homeowner to use deadly force against an armed intruder who breaks into one’s home.
“I’m not saying that stealing is okay. All I’m saying is that it doesn’t warrant a death penalty,” Meza explained. “Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate. They just want to get their loot and get away. When the resident tries to resist is when people get hurt. If only one side is armed fewer people will be killed.”
Meza promptly reassured everyone that her bill “would not totally prevent homeowners from defending themselves.
Under the new law the homeowner’s obligation is to flee the home at the first sign of intrusion. If fleeing is not possible he must cooperate with the intruder. But if violence breaks out it is the homeowner’s responsibility to make sure no one gets hurt. The best way to achieve this is to use the minimum non-lethal force possible because intruders will be able to sue for any injuries they receive at the hands of the homeowner.”
“In most instances the thief needs the money more than the homeowner does,” Meza reasoned. “The homeowner’s insurance we reimburse his losses. On balance, the transfer of property is likely to lead to a more equitable distribution of wealth. If my bill can help make this transfer a peaceful one so much the better.”
This is abhorrent, to say the least. This cannot be allowed to happen. She is saying that as the homeowner, we are obligated to flee or comply with our intruder, possibly our attacker, rapist, or murderer. This is under the assumption that they need my stuff more than me.
THIS IS CRAZY TALK. I can hardly believe it is real. You can’t make this stuff up. She says, “if only one side is armed, fewer people will be killed,” which makes me wonder if she actually realizes that she is incentivizing strong-armed robbery with her Bill.
Personally, if one side is armed while you’re breaking into my house, it is going to be me. Otherwise, there will be two sides armed. That is that.
Who does she think she is to say that the armed criminal who broke into my home needs my things more than me? That is Communist talk.

I encourage you to write your Representatives and let them know that Texans will not allow this Commie nonsense in our great state. Possibly word it differently…
Call to Action:
- Get/stay INFORMED AND EDUCATED
- Watch/read news from BOTH SIDES.
- PROTECT your family and fellow Patriots
- Engage in CIVIL DISCOURSE
- REFUTE misinformation
- DO NOT fall into the Third Party trap. Remember Ross Perot is how Clinton got elected.
This is a civil war between Communism and America. There is no more Democrat vs Republican right now. America needs to be united in the party of Patriots who believe in our constitution and the inherent right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The radical Left has thrown their hail Mary, and we need to get our heads in the game and intercept that pass before it’s too late. Whether or not you believe Orange Man Bad, The Republicans who followed President Donald J Trump are the only hope for remaining a constitutional republic.
