From an article on Forward Progressives:
The Texas Department of Public Safety forced women to hand over their tampons and pads before entering the Senate chamber today. Not only that, but they were also forcing diabetics to hand over sugar packets and other diabetes supplies which are lifelines when dealing with low blood glucose levels.
The article also claims that guns were allowed in the Senate Chambers:
And the kicker — those with concealed handgun licenses who wanted to enter the Senate chamber were not only allowed to keep their handguns, but they were allowed to bypass the long lines and enter through a “special” CHL (concealed handgun license) line.
The whole thing sounds a bit too bizarre, and the source is certainly partisan. So what did actually happen? Did they confiscate diabetes supplies and tampons while allowing anyone with a concealed carry permit to bring a handgun inside?
