War of words breaks out between Texas GOP Chairman West and Lt. Gov. Patrick over permitless carry

Chair West accuses Patrick and Senate Republicans of inserting “poison pill” amendments; Blakemore says plainly that West is lying and "clueless"

Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West, perhaps tired of attacking Gov. Greg Abbott, on Thursday instead took political shots at Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick over the issue of permitless carry of handguns.

Chair West even went so far as to say that Texas House Democrats should be thanked for keeping the bill alive after Patrick and Texas Senate Republicans added what West called “poison pill amendments” before sending the bill back to the House.
