Re: Extrajudicial Killing

So as long as the politicians keep their hands clean by simply not being near enough to action, they can't be a target?... That doesn't seem to make any sense. If North Korea invaded Seoul, Kim Jong-un isn't in 'the war zone', he would be in Pyongyang (most likely) or one of the hidden military ins...

Re: Extrajudicial Killing

If we use snipers to kill "high value targets" by surprise, we can hardly complain it's unfair or unethical for our opponents do the same. If we use UAV/RMA to deliver missiles or bombs, we can hardly call our opponents cowards for using IED, when that's the technology they have. I think we agree m...

Re: HB 1123 - First Responder Deisgnation on LTC

Just to be clear, this law is a very specialized advancement of 2A rights for a very small number of people. It makes 30.06, 30.07, and 46.035 not apply to first responders who already have an LTC if they get their license marked as first responders. It redefines first responders to not include thos...

Re: 58,000 Non-U.S. Citizens Voted in Texas State Elections

The one illustrated in one story I read was an illegal using a stolen ID. I gathered from the story that DPS was doing it by checking driver's licenses and then cross checking them with voter registration records.

Thanks. I don't know why i was thinking it was in Texas. I apologize for blaming the media for not paying attention when they were, in fact, correct this time.

Re: Wash DC: MAGA hat wearing teens get ugly with drum beating indigenous people

Not entirely true. Not defending this guy, but his record shows almost 2 1/2 yrs active duty. Yes, he was a reservist. Also, it is possible to serve in the IRR (for which you get retirement points, but not enough for a "good year" that counts towards retirement). You can, however, gain enough point...

Re: Wash DC: MAGA hat wearing teens get ugly with drum beating indigenous people

Everyone who enlists in any service has an 8 year obligation. Depending on the branch, either 2,3,4 years active duty, and the remainder of the 8 years IRR (Individual Ready Reserve), unless you voluntarily join a Reserve unit. So yeah, once he was discharged, he had 4 years left in the Reserve unl...

Re: NJ: Resident kills home invader with invader's own gun

Well, the anti-gunners always did say you shouldn't carry a gun because someone will taek it away from you and use it against you. I guess they had to be right at least once.

Re: IN: Lafayette PD officer accidently shoots another officer

They all need better training. The one making the video was also searching with his finger on the trigger. This video shows one of the reasons I dislike lights on pistols. He was using the pistol light as his flashlight while searching. I don't have a problem with having the pistol out while searchi...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

What about LEO and Special Investigators (Feds) who are not currently subject to those sections... Yes, there is no exception for anyone in the proposed 30.06 and 30.07. This will get all of the police organizations to oppose it very quickly. Whether we like that part or not, we need their cooperat...

Re: Article on Slippery Definitions of "Assault Weapon"

Never forget every 12ga shotgun can become a destructive device without any new laws, and it's easier than bump stocks becoming machine guns. I’m not disputing this, but I don’t understand how. Please explain? Federal code section 18 USC 921 (4)(B) defines destructive device as: (B) any type of wea...

Re: Incredible account of Parkland shooting

Amazing. I can't think of any other word I can say in public. A catastrophic failure of epic proportions. I think shocking might be a better word. I think it is an excellent reconstruction, if it is as accurate as I think it is. I was shocked to see that there were more cowards on the sheriff's dep...
