Re: NH: Pick up truck driver charged with negligent homicide in deaths of 7 motorcyclists

23 year old driver. As I understand it, 21 is the minimum age for a CDL for interstate operation. So we have a kid with two years or less experience who's unskilled enough to gator-tail an empty flat bed. Sounds like negligence to me....bet the 'wrongful death' plaintiffs attorneys will think so.....

Re: Cities improperly posting 30.06 signs?

I went to the Liberty county court house today to get a license plate for a trailer. The license office is about 10 ft. past the 2 officers, and the metal detectors at the front door. I also had to turn in my pocket knife. They have both 30.06/07 signs on the front doors. They are in red, which whe...

Re: MN: Self defense shooting trial built on gun control bumper sticker

My gun-related stickers are for the front of my gun safe. I only have two stickers on my car: a small one on my bumper with the name of unchurched on it; and one on my rear window that says "no step on snek". given the size of the pit viper population in Texas, you can always claim that sticker is ...

So I guess it's only on TV where they handcuff a detainee to the gurney if they aren't going to assign an LEO to him or keep him in a secured section of the hospital?

Re: TX: San Antonio man treats GSW with chocolate milk

This makes no sense to me, but I've seen various videos where bystanders, observing an overdosing person, will say "Get...
