Texas Gov Lifts Lockdown on Barbers After Legislators Sport Illegal Haircuts

Texas Governor Greg Abbot added barbershops to the list of businesses allowed to re-open. He apparently did so after two state legislators from his own Republican party got illegal haircuts.

The two GOP lawmakers got illegal haircuts to protest the lockdown forcing people to stay at home.  Steve Toth and Briscoe Cain, the two legislators, got haircuts in a salon knowing that barbers were not allowed to open during the lockdown.

In an interview, Toth said that Gov Abbot is busy handling the state during the pandemic and state reps had to find creative ways to make their points. He also went on to say that there is no reason for barbershops to remain closed if they follow all the necessary state protocol.

Briscoe Cain, the other legislator who got a haircut, called his action an act of ‘civil disobedience’. He also added his actions were not a personal criticism of the governor.

Tune Up: The Manly Salon, the place where the lawmakers got their respective haircuts, closed after reopening last weekend. The move from the two legislators will now allow other barbershops to open across Texas.

Unrest Due to Lockdown Rises

After weeks of lockdowns, governors are now strategizing how to reopen their respective states. In Michigan, Governor Whitmer’s request to increase her own emergency powers received backlash from protestors, some of them armed. Gavin Newsome, governor of California, has come out and assured citizens that a plan to reopen is only days away.

Reopening the country back up is now a political issue. President Trump lent his support to the protestors in Michigan and tweeted –

Protests across the country could grow if the lockdown period increases. Most people in the country live paycheck to paycheck and cannot afford a long period of inactivity. While health safety is a priority, most in our country simply cannot afford a long lockdown.
