Texas school land board delays action on Christmas Mountains

This is a followup on the earlier story on the Texas state school land board’s attempt to sell the Christmas Mountains (given to them 16 years ago as a gift). They are adjacent to Big Bend National Park.

Given to Texas as a Gift, the State wants to sell off the Christmas Mountains to highest bidder

The Dallas News doesn’t like the idea. Keep Mountains Public. Dallas News.

Neither does the San Antonio Express. Christmas Mountains sale should be delayed.

Proponents of the sale have drummed up a phony Second Amendment argument to justify not selling the mountains to the National Park Service to add to Big Bend National Park. Of course, if the mountains are private property they won’t be able to take their guns there because their person can’t go there.
