Re: Mother of dead Popeyes robber: ‘Why did he shoot him five times'

Now it makes me wonder. If I were in that situation, how many shots would I pull off before I stop? I know it'll be at least two, possibly 3 depending on how likely the perp is to be incapacitated at that point. That is all assuming I'm in control of my faculties as adrenaline is pumping through my...

Re: KS:Witchta man dies after fake "Swatting" call

Plus, if they don't prosecute the officer for the death, can you really punish the SWAT'er as an accessory to murder? :iagree: if the shooter is not guilty then the caller is not guilty. From Wikipedia: Constructive manslaughter is also referred to as "unlawful act" manslaughter. It is ba...

Re: KS:Witchta man dies after fake "Swatting" call

Do not go outside. If you do go out side put your hands in the air and do not do anything else even if they tell you to. No matter what. I find it hard to believe that if you just not answer the door, LE will go away. In fact now it totally justifies a crack team of commandos with APC's, tear gas, ...

Re: Houston Folks: PSC Range Day after Christmas?

We don't have a set date right now, we are just trying to figure things out. After the new year may be best. Since I don't hunt, when is deer season over? Regular season is over Jan 7. We do a hunt for wounded veterans during doe and spike mid January. Since we are MLD, our season doesn't end until...

There should be an amendment to this proposal removing all security measures (security guards, LEO presence, metal detectors, ect) from the council meetings.

Re: Adios Academy

I buy a lot of my ammo at Academy. They aren't the cheapest but prices are usually reasonable and they're convenient. That's about to change. I ordered three range buckets from Academy on Black Friday. They sent a confirmation email. They charged my credit card. Then last week I got an email saying...

Re: Hearing Protection Act of 2017

What we really need is a Federal law banning and confiscating autoloader rifles that are not equipped with a rate of fire slowing device (ROFSD), that keeps you from pulling the trigger more than once every two seconds. All existing semi-rifles must be registered IAW NFA after having ROFSD installe...
