Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

People don't get it, whole families going to Walmart, mom dad and kids. Just one adult should go. Galveston beaches being closed because people aren't smart enough to stay home. NYC kids out playing basketball. Houston area has 997 cases when just a few days ago the number was around 300. Stay home...

So the dimocratic libtards who employ their scare tactics in our state claim that with the current lenient measures, TX will see 1/2 million dead from the virus.
Do you have a source for this claim of 500,000 potential deaths in Texas?

Re: Isn’t this illegal

From the photos, the barrel looks longer than the quoted 11.5”. Not sure the description is accurate.

Re: Need help with “Essential Businesses”

Open or not, at this point in time, I don’t think I want to go to a store and handle a gun, or anything else, that may have been handled by a number of other people. I keep a reasonable supply of ammo and food on hand at all times. I’ll chill at home, for now, read a few gun forums, and watch some Y...

I think we have discussed that this virus might be a test of socialized medicine. https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-are-the-rich-and-famous-jumping-the-test-queues-in-england-by-paying-440-11584799200 England has both a public and private healthcare system.

Re: Saudi starts an oil price war, OPEC in shambles

OPEC in shambles is a good thing. OPEC is a cartel which artificially restricts supply. Not good for the drilling industry, but low energy prices are generally good for the overall us economy. Loss of oil royalties from state lands as well as a decrease in sales tax and other tax revenues will lead...

This will not be good for Texas. Oil price in free fall, also driving the stock markets down.

Re: The Boy Scouts Filing Bankruptcy After A String Of “Woke” Decisions Caused It To Go Broke

Wall Street Journal also discussed this and I am a big fan of the Boy Scouts but the reason that they may be facing bankruptcy is declining numbers as well as lawsuits from sexual abuse allegations. The lawsuits are probably the main reason. Yes, this seems to be the main issue, and it goes back de...

Well, it has to have an opening large enough for the light, which is probably considerably wider than the trigger guard.
