Stanton FFA to host community event Sept. 9

STANTON - The Stanton FFA Chapter will be 78 years old. The FFA Chapter was chartered in 1941 as boys in Vocational Agriculture classes learned and worked to improve themselves, their school and community. History has lost the name of the first agriculture instructors and early members at Stanton, but today the Stanton FFA chapter boasts a membership that is almost a hundred members strong, including many young women. The new agriscience teachers, husband and wife team, Donnie W. and Stacy H. Reed, are looking to continue the traditions.

Monday night there will be a hamburger supper and open house hosted by the FFA Chapter. Community members, parents and former members are all invited to attend and tour the facilities. “We plan to have some of the old banners, pictures and awards out on display and hope that some of our alumni can help us identify former chapter members and winners.” said Reed.

License to carry instructors suddenly in high demand

WEST TEXAS and STANTON - People are surging to sign up for training to carry firearms leagally in the wake of the Odessa shooting that left seven people dead and 22 more injured over the Labor Day holiday.

Experts say sustained media coverage and calls for more gun control encourage people to look for ways to protect themselves.

Gun sales in Texas appear to be steady, based on federal background checks, but with the newest data only going back to February it will be a few more months before a correlation can be made between gun sales and the recent shootings in El Paso and Odessa.

Lemonade, beer and brass knuckles headline new Texas laws set to take effect September 1

AUSTIN - Make your way to Amazon for those brass knuckles you’ve been wanting to carry in public. Changes to carrying your favorite self-defense weapon is just one of the new laws that will take effect September statewide. From firearms to lemonade stands, here are some of the laws you’ll need to know about.

Laid Back Gun Laws

With gun control at the forefront of many conversations throughout the country, the Texas Legislature added a number of pro-Second Amendment bills during the last session.

Texans who legally own firearms will be able to carry them in public after a state or natural disaster is declared. The law came after complaints Harvey victims weren’t able to take their guns during mandatory evacuations.
