Re: IN: 'Multiple victims' in shooting at FedEx facility in Indianapolis

No mention if the workplace was a “gun free zone”. I visited an Amazon delivery center one time. It was wide open, didn’t see any armed guards. I suspect this FedX facility was similar. All FedEx facilities are no gun. This one was also no cell phones, I assume to prevent pictures of packages and a...

Re: 3006 Sign Question

Sorry guys. I wasn't clear on the confiscate part. The only time this happened, the patient was carrying concealed. Once the Dr. began to examine him and discovered the weapon, he voluntarily surrendered it to me at the Dr.s request. I returned it to him when he left. The next day, my Sergeant said...

Re: IL: 13 yo teen killed by police at 2:30 am in alley

Cop was poorly trained. No, he wasn't. You need to explain why you think this way. Before you do that, I strongly suggest you go read the study from the Force Science Institute on how much time it takes to stop an action after you have committed to it. I believe this was originally researched to he...

Re: SCOTUS: Dems introduce bill to add 4 new Justices

What I honestly do not understand is how the Democrats can honestly believe they will stay in power forever. It will change and hopefully the Republicans (or their replacement) will show the Democrats that they learned their lessons. The Democrats went to 13 because that is enough to get them a majo...

Re: To NFA or not to NFA, that is the question

For anyone thinking of going NFA, remember that it is a registry that tells them exactly where your firearm/silencer is. And one of the Democrat representatives was in the news yesterday introducing a bill to ban all silencers in the US. I don't think that will fly this time, but it is a warning sho...

Re: No place but Minneapolis

This is straight from the Minnesota Statues - Manslaughter 2 - (1) by the person's culpable negligence whereby the person creates an unreasonable risk, and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another; - She meant to grab the Taser and grabbed her gun instead. Open &am...

Re: No place but Minneapolis

Wouldn’t this be manslaughter? By your actions you kill someone and it was not your intention. There is another aspect to manslaughter that is required, a culpable mental state. In Texas, you must do this recklessly, which means you are aware of a risk and disregard the possibility. That does not a...

Re: No place but Minneapolis

After 20+ years of police experience, how the heck do you confuse a taser (roughly 8oz) from a glock (roughly 32oz)? Not to mention they were on opposite sides and she had it pointed at him for a bit. Troubling, very troubling. His conduct notwithstanding, there is an issue here. A big issue. There...

Re: Deadly force to stop animal cruelty?

I believe that RoyGBiv has the key point correctly. Animal are considered property under Texas law as far as I know. Therefore, look at Sections 9.42, 9.42, and 9.43 for the legal justifications for using force. Animal cruelty is not one of the crimes listed, so the best you might be able to get to ...

Re: Biden to Nominate Gun Control Activist as ATF Director

https://youtu.be/mRmPNQNOsEQ As a compromise, I would pay 200 and register it if I could drill the 3rd hole and have the rock and roll setting on the selector. I love the "Its just a background check and prints" to get an NFA item. If it was "just" that, why does it take months ...

Re: Danger, Will Robinson

I got married in 1976 while I was in the Army. When I got out in 78, we moved to my home town of Philadelphia. My wife did not like it there and wanting to keep her happy, I moved to where her family was in the Houston area. I went back into the Army in 79 and got out again in 83 (for good). When it...

Re: New Maryland Police "Reform"

Saw a video of police officer pepper spraying a LT of the U.S Army over the weekend. I will wait until facts come out in order to determine if the LT was at fault or was it just that the officer had a bad day and just took out his frustrations on a person that serves our country. It only takes one ...

Re: Ghost Guns

I believe the specific case that Biden referred to, and that touched this all off, was that a company put together kits that had everything needed to build a complete firearm with the lower being an 80% lower. It included all the interior parts for the lower, the barrel, slide, etc. I have a vague m...

Re: Biden to Nominate Gun Control Activist as ATF Director

I have no respect for anyone who would propose to violate the US Constitution. In many cases, I will agree that the Constitution is vague enough to allow for proposals I disagree with. But I have yet to meet an anti-gun activist who can answer this one question satisfactorily: Regardless of how I fe...
