Re: George W. Bush

I actually liked Bush and thought he was maligned badly by the left. And the smartest thing he ever did (besides his choice of wife) was that when he was out of office, he refused to comment on anything Obama did or on politics at all. I really wish he had maintained that policy because I have lost ...

Re: Police stop girl in OHIO from killing. BLM off and running!

Re: USS IOWA VS Japan's Yamato battleship

Just for grins, it appears that the guns on the Iowa were accurate to about 2 secs of angle. MOA is one inch per 100 yards. That works out to about 250 inches at 25,000 yards. I used a rough estimate from the graph of about 700 yards spread at 25,000 yards range. That is about 25,200 inches. Since o...

Re: Police stop girl in OHIO from killing. BLM off and running!

I don't think the current atmosphere will change until a city loses its entire police force, and people are forced to fend for themselves against the criminals and their gangs. :iagree: I say shut the police department down for one month and let them have at it. I'd buy a ticket. I cannot disagree ...

Re: No place but Ohio

Bawaaahahaha... a small nuclear reactor in his garage? Is that even possible for an average person to do? If it is, I think I want one for Christmas. Back in the 1990s, a young man by the name of David Hahn came very close to building a nuclear reactor in his mother’s garden shed. He might have suc...

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

I’ve never been a huge Texit supporter, but that could change soon. The more I think on this, the more convinced I am that many Democrats are not doing this because they cave power (a motive I at least understand). I am becoming more convinced they are doing this to deliberately try to kick off a r...

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

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...
