Is "protective order" the same as a "restraining order"?
A quick google search came up with a divorce lawyers website in Frisco that explains the difference. They are not the same thing.

Re: HB 1713 - Surrendering Firearms if convicted of family violence or subject to a protective order

I think the concern to allowing the sale to a friend, or relative is they could always give it back. Yes, that would make them guilty of a felony too (I think it would be a felony) but I'm not sure that matters.

Re: Texas Woman Posing For Photo With Rifle Shoots And Kills Boyfriend

In the second article it appears the defendant called it an assault rifle. She made a statement and that statement is in quotes. The term assault rifle is within those quotes.

I don't think its the author of the article calling it an assault rifle.

Re: new gun range in Plano TX... maybe

I live close by and put in my vote in favor.

I struggle a little understanding why people would be so opposed.

Re: Pig Hunting

I had a 4 lb ham from a 70lb pig I shot back in the spring.

I followed the directions from amazingribs.com to create a picnic ham. It soaked for 9 days in a brine solution and then 6 hours on the smoker finished with a home made mustard BBQ sauce.

It fed 6 and there wasn't a scrap left.

Re: TX: Austin man acquitted of criminally negligent homicide in shoving death

The second link has a couple similar stories that had different outcomes. This sounds like it was a bench trial and the judge was sympathetic to the defendant. I wonder if a jury would have been as sympathetic.

I'm glad he was found not guilty.

Re: Pig Hunting

On taking care of the meat;

Removing as much of the fat and connective tissue as possible will help a lot with the gamey taste. Not nicking the bladder or intestines also helps quite a bit.

I have eaten both boars and sows up to 175# and had no issues.
