    But here is the reputable source.

    The DPS issued a press release on what it had found so far:

    AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today received information that individuals planned to use a variety of items or props to disrupt legislative proceedings at the Texas Capitol.

    Therefore for safety purposes, DPS recommended to the Texas Senate that all bags be inspected prior to allowing individuals to enter the Senate gallery, which the Texas Senate authorized.

    During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.

    In the interest of the safety and security of Texas legislators and the general public, these inspections will continue until the conclusion of Senate business.

    Which essentially says nothing was thrown, but it is suspected some such things were brought in preparation for throwing.

      If they even existed, which I tend to doubt. IF anybody was carrying them, confiscating them harmed nobody.

      I can ALMOST go along with the glitter and confetti ban, not because it would hurt anybody (nor can you throw it far) but because its an awful mess to clean up. However, I assume they have a decent janitorial service that uses thing like vacuum cleaners, so it wouldn't be THAT much of a hassle.

      But tampons? There's a valid reason for having them. And for having diabetes supplies, small amounts of food, etc.

      Idiots. They let in GUNS though. Those are just fine.

      You know, as bad as it would be to be hit with a sack of shit, I'd much rather have that than a BULLET.

      If I had one wish, Republican men would have uteruses.
