Watching this closely. Scheduled to go to Uganda in May, but not anywhere near Congo border.

Re: Shooting at Twin Peaks in Waco

Reports said four of the nine had police bullets in them. Actually this is a case of DA incompetence. Cookie cutter warrants and bails, and a prosecution strategy that was unobtainable. And then the DA (Reyna) was voted out for this and other cronyism and competency issues. The new DA determined the...

Re: 51% Sign Legality?

And I can tell you from personal experience that TABC will act. I even got a call from an agent asking for more info on a report I registered with the app.

Re: Should we abolish the Electoral College?

If you want to see this in practice, just look at Illinois. Chicago dems and Cook County control the entire state. A large part of IL is conservative but has no vote/power.

Texas CPS takes kids out of deplorable living conditions all the time. I don't see how this is any different.

Re: How to report improper §30.06 signs

I politely pulled the Bartender over and told her she needed to explain to the owner that their signage was unlawful and got the heck out of there as quickly as I could. Why was it improper? Was it actually licensed as a 51% place? If it is not a RED sign license, it is not illegal to carry there e...

Re: Negligent Discharge In Restaurant

Hard to tell what kind of gun. I recall the original Ruger LCP was recalled for a fix, because it could discharge if dropped (DA with one in the pipe).

Re: OH: Good gal w/ Ruger .380 kills BG brandishing Springer 9MM.

I carry Federal HST 90gr JHP in my 380, based on test reports I have read. I am not concerned about 380 effectiveness, and it's nice to see this validating field report.

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

Am I mistaken in thinking that Texas State Law require all persons in a vehicle to use seatbelts? Only in the front seat, unless they're under 17 years old. http://texascarlaws.com/seat-belt-laws/ That page is out of date. All persons in a vehicle must wear a safety belt. https://www.dps.texas.gov/...

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

While federal law mandated all vehicles be equipped with seat belts in 1968, the first state mandatory laws were not enacted until 84-85, and some as late as the mid-90s. Until then, there was no culture to wearing seat belts. I never did, until I was picking up a friend of mine at the airport in 1...
