Re: VA: Appeals court overturned guilty verdict of man who killed intruder breaking into home

Well, I've heard it said here on the forum that if a man breaks into your house in the middle of the night, he's probably not there for a glass of iced tea.

Re: Dog attack in St. Petersburg - OK to Shoot Attacking Dog ?

The folks that own those aggressive dogs, judging by the house and cars, won't have a problem with a $148 citation. They'll probably be laughing while they write the check. That is pretty much the problem. I've been attacked and bitten by a dog while riding my bike. While it might seem unbelievable...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

My goodness, what does it take to get the Rangers involved to do a proper investigation of those events? Yes, I know the scene is all messed up by now, it's been quite a while gone by. But, they could at least review all the documents, interview everyone, get all the crime scene photos, etc, and try...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

ABC 13 reported: “According to the court documents, police recovered four guns, about 18 grams of marijuana and about 1.5 grams of an unknown white powder.” Is 1 gram very much? Attorney familiar with drug operations said he would have expected to find scales and unused baggies if it was a drug ope...

Re: Parkland Rep Predicts Gun-Safety Majority will get Gun Control Through Congress

As a group, we like to call ourselves “law-abiding”. For us, it is a point of pride. We believe in the Rule of Law. This presents us with a dilemma, because we also claim to revere the Constitution - and most particularly, that part of it dealing with our first and second amendment rights. The dile...

Bought a new Rossi 92 in .357/.38

Well, last week I went into the LGS looking to buy a certain firearm, only to find out that no one had it in stock anywhere. However, sitting in the rack behind the counter, was a lever-action Rossi 92. Asked to take a look at it, and as soon as I brought it to my shoulder, I knew I was buying it. I...

Re: Speaker Bonnen's betrayal of Texas gun-owners

Much easier to attend rallies when big money groups pay for you to go there. Most of us pro-2A folks have jobs, and bills to pay, and no one footing the bill for us to go to the Capitol.

Re: Parkland Rep Predicts Gun-Safety Majority will get Gun Control Through Congress

I still haven't figured out why these people can't understand a simple truth. Most mass shooters either 1. Don't buy the weapons they use 2. Don't follow the laws already on the books (obviously) 3. Could just pack many extra magazines and ammo for reloading so it negates the law banning "high capa...

Re: HI: 9th Circuit panel rules 2A protects right to carry gun in public

IMHO, if they allow open carry but not concealed, they've limited the right to bear DE FACTO because of the stigma attached to open carry...and THEY KNOW IT! I carry concealed because I can. If open carry was my only option, then I would open carry! I have no reason to doubt that YOU would OC if th...

The new governor would not allow LEOs to wear firearms at her inauguration.
What are the odds that she didn't have some sort of armed security at the event, even if they were concealed the entire time?

Texas Rangers need to step in immediately and Ace should resign.
:thumbs2: Exactly. Anyone who wants to know what the problem is there, I give them two words: Art and Acevedo. Just my personal opinion, of course.

Using the word facts in the same sentence as Acevedo is an oxymoron. Those of his ilk never use facts.
Now that is something we can agree on. The man will never lose his leftwing California attitudes, no matter how long he lives in Texas.

Same stuff that is filed every year and is soundly defeated every year. Fodder for their low information voters so that the Rep can say that they tried, even though they know it has a 0.0001% chance of passing. Oh don’t worry... our side does this too: Stickland with his Constitutional Carry bill i...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I am curious about one thing, though. When the police do one of these major drug busts, don't they normally show the confiscated narcotics during a press conference? Black tar heroin, by all reputations, is some VERY nasty stuff. I'd think the HPD would want to highlight what was positive about the ...
