Re: TFC Bill Status Report published

I see HB 357 doesn't have a summary yet on the TFC site, altho it's list at the top as being tracked. I assume it's still undergoing analysis? BTW, did Stickland specifically request that number for the bill? Can that be done? It's going to take a while to fully analyze the Bill due to its scope. T...

Cool move by the company. :cheers2:

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

... ... It is only enforceable because states have implemented it into state law,... Um, what? The current GFSZA is certainly enforceable by the feds regardless of state law (although they it seems to come into play mostly or only as an add-on to other offenses. generally drug offenses). If the GFS...

Re: SB 193 - Free LTC for School Marshals

The last time I looked I could find only one or two schools that actually used a "School Marshal," because the law is so restrictive and cumbersome. The "Guardian Program" provides more flexibility and more armed staff, and pretty much every school that has gone with allowing carry by staff/teachers...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

That is quite the bill.... Sheesh there is a lot of distributed code. Looks like it makes constitutional carry apply to all, and makes 30.06 and 30.07 only apply to 'unlicensed persons'. It would likely only make it through with additional provisions for what a license holder can and cannot do- but...

Re: QuikTrip hiring 'hybrid employees' who can work while armed to deter crime, keep customers safe

Or now rather a dated term -'win-win' gag... And my list goes on, but I'm sure you get my curmudgeonly point. W...
