Re: Waller County

I don't think the AG is being lazy, and I would prefer that he get this particular case (Paxton v City of Austin) right because it will set precedent for how licensed carry is handled in courthouses throughout Texas. The speed of which the case advances is mostly at the mercy of the judges hearing t...

Re: TX: Dallas LTC holder fends off robbers at home cookout

Unless there is a significant element to this story that hasn't been reported (like a drug deal gone bad), I don't think the LTC'er has anything to worry about from the law.

Re: Anyone ever see a cat like this?

Does look odd. I have had a black short hair cat with a similar conformation. When you pick up most cats it's like picking up a sackful of jello with a few bones floating in it, but my old Boojum had the body of a gymnast -- solid hard muscle everywhere. Long body, short thick powerful legs, and his...

Re: TX: Dallas LTC holder fends off robbers at home cookout

If the LTC was questioned and released by Dallas PD, does the mention of a Grand Jury mean the DA will seek and indictment for the LTC for killing the robber?

Re: The war with Iran

Yes they deliberately shot it down. The fact that it was a regularly scheduled flight does not mean their air defense correctly identified it (nor is misidentification an "excuse.") The USS Vincennes shot down a regularly scheduled flight as well, after misidentifying it as a hostile even though the...
