Re: Walmart has fallen!

i"m also ok trying increase awareness so that folks feel empowered to make a phone call on somebody they think shouldn't' have access to a gun so the Police can do a welfare check. I'm not settled on the idea of "red flag' laws, but I personally would definitely call the police if somebody i knew w...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

As for background checks, LTC folks have that covered as we voluntarily submit to them every 5 years. I can't get too upset by expanding background checks since I have voluntarily done so 3 times here in TX (and multiple times in the military with security clearances.). If i have to pay $25 to get ...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

I've never been a proponent of OC; therefore, 30.07 in any form upsets me not a bit. :tiphat: I’ve never been a fan of revolvers so if Texas were to ban them, I wouldn’t care a bit. :biggrinjester: Exactly. Just one more step closer to banning all carry. Normalize banning one, the other doesn't see...

Will any of the liberal Justices speak out against this? :bigear:

Would be fun to hear RGB unload on these traitors.
RBG has actually said "9 is a good number" when asked about this in the relatively recent past. So she definitely isn't a fan.

Re: Obigation to correct someone?

These stories help to support my belief that many people assume you are a cop when you are open carrying. Mostly because it is so unusual to see people open carrying. It was almost 2 years after the law went into effect before I spotted someone "in the wild" open carrying. I live in Cedar Park and ...

Troopers- based in Casper Wyoming. First year Snare and he loves it. He’d love to play with Santa Clara next year - as I’m sure many would. Their show last night was unbelievable. Head and shoulders above everyone else there. They are a crowd favorite and why my son was interested in drum corps. Ou...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

If they choose not to post signs that comply with the requirements of 30.06 and / or 30.07, then any other signage is meaningless to an LTC holder. They could also choose to notify folks orally, or to hand out cards to everyone with the required verbiage. There is also a slight difference between 3...

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I lived in Arizona for a few years, and until then I wondered why they were opposed to DST. After living there I found out. Arizona is tucked at the far west side of the Mountain Time Zone and even without DST the sun sets pretty late in the day. In the desert, the last thing those folks need is an...

Charles, I am not trying to be confrontational or knock/bash you or the NRA. Again, I will remind you and others, we are on the same side of when it comes to gun issues. I am just confused as I seem to be getting conflicting info regarding how the NRA develops it's ratings. See the thread at these ...
