Re: Patron in Restaurant pulls gun on armed BLM marchers

I have to point out that as small as it was (and not something I would ever care to carry), it did what he needed it to do. It convinced the one organizer to start pushing her crowd back out of the restaurant which avoided him having to shoot anyone. I am a firm believer that if he had opened fire, ...

Re: Interaction with Police

I think you could say I am a supporter of police in general, but I freely admit there are some cops who need to get out of law enforcement and some reform is truly needed. I think your friend does have some valid points, but that he may be overestimating the results. A lot of people are leaving the ...

Re: TX: Lt Gov Patrick says not enough Senate votes to pass Con Carry

I would counter by saying that many metropolitan areas which have chiefs who parrot city leadership are home to many left leaning individuals who elect that same city leadership. Even making chief an elected position would likely result in a similar political stance. Perhaps even MORE "politic...

Re: Joe Xiden

From the very beginning there are certain guns, weapons that could not be owned by Americans. As you should all know b...

Re: If you had the carry choice

Lately, even though work makes me carry concealed, I have decided that a small gun in a hard to get to holster is just not worth carrying. I switched back to OWB carry and I am carrying a Springfield XDM in 10mm. I like a full size pistol and would probably go back to my 1911 if I decided not to car...

Re: TX: all our wind turbines are obsolete

There is no free lunch. My view wind turbines would slow the earth’s rotation. Ugly. Kill birds. And a recycling issue. Nuke is by far the cheapest. But it has “issues”. Fusion, let’s make it happen. :iagree: May I have a portable Tokamak for my backyard? The problem with wind is variability and th...

Re: USA: Two tier system of Justice

The US has always had a two tier system of justice: one for the poor and one for those with money or political connections. The difference is that lately, one party has come to believe in justice more than in the past and does not protect its operatives as much as they used to. And the other party h...

Re: Supreme Court Grants Cert in Second Amendment Concealed Carry Case

In a 5-4 situation like that I think Roberts may move to a 6-3 anyway. If he is in the majority, he can determine who writes the opinion. An opinion written by him as opposed to Thomas is much different. That said, I don't think Roberts has been bad historically on 2A. He voted with the majority on...

That isn't a SWAT team or a raid. They waited outside for him. And everyone knows, SWAT doesn't knock.
