In other news, newly-confirmed Interior Department secretary Ryan Zinke has signed an order reversing an Obama-era ban on using lead ammunition for hunting in national parks. Real freedumb is using poisonous bullets! Yeehaw!
Meanwhile, cities in Texas are already seeing the possible consequences of the state passing an anti-transgender "bathroom bill."
San Antonio officials are saying the consequences are already real. Three groups that had been considering San Antonio for conventions or major events have already crossed us off their list. Another eight conventions the city has already booked have said they’ll cancel if lawmakers pass the bill.
