Miller, T. and McHoul, A. (1998) Helping the self. Social Text, 57 . pp. 127-155.


To carry a concealed weapon here in Texas, a person must pay a $140 application fee, have no history of major crime or mental illness, demonstrate an understanding of use-of-force laws and pass a shooting proficiency test with a .38 caliber revolver or a 9-millimeter semiautomatic handgun.

And one other thing: the applicant must be in touch with his or her inner child.
