President Obama

Texas Standard: December 8, 2015

The President says people should not be able to purchase a gun if they’re on a no-fly list. In real life, would this this fly? We’ll explore today on the Texas Standard. Also: coming soon to a school near you? Students at a north Texas high school stage a walkout. We’ll hear how conditions at the school sparked a protest and why it may not be the last. Plus a seizure of a shipment of wood at the port of Houston. What so special about that timber. And a long lost album by the late great Roy Orbison-rediscovered. All of that and so much more on todays Texas Standard:
