Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Even if I actually cared, I'd still want to see the DNA test results......and if there's no trace of sephardim ancestry, then we have yet another case of self-serving liberal cultural delusion/appropriation........ho hum

Re: UNT Dallas School of Law suspends student, possiby in part because he owns a firearm

OK, read the comments. Changing my question to "why has nobody filed charges?". For either willful violation of 30.07, and/or for 'displaying a weapon in a manner calculated to alarm'. You would hope that, at a law school, somebody would actually know the law....... :shock:

Re: Interesting question involving both 1st & 2nd Amendment

Which 'red flags' are you referring to? The FTC requirement that 'creditors' like auto dealerships and insurance agencies are required to have a policy and protocol in place to identify if I'm really who I say I am before they extend me credit (identity theft)? Or are you saying that auto credit and...

Re: Decline to prosecute....crimes

Let's see if I got this straight. The new DA in Suffolk County Massachusetts (a.k.a., Boston) is proposing the same method of 'crime reduction' (i.e., just ignoring it) as the Parkland School District used with headcase Nikolaus Cruz. Think about how that worked out, and then think about applying th...

Re: South Texas College to build indoor range

https://www.southtexascollege.edu/rcpse/ the two things that are hilarious about this are 1) it's going to be right next to Pharr's newest high school, and 2) that high school was built several years ago (in a flood plain) right next to the Pharr Rifle and Pistol Club outdoor range, which has been ...

Re: Now I know why this ammo wouldn't work in my M-1 Carbine

Duh. OK, some days I'm a little slow.....shoulda remembered that medium/large bore rimfire exited about the same time as black powder........
Better be careful with those, though. '30 Carb' x 50 rounds is 1500 Carbs per box. Could do bad things to your cholesterol level. ;-)

Robert B. Parker's Legacy is, Sadly, Now Only Three for Four.....

I first came across Robert B. Parker's novels in the late 70's or early 80's, and have been a fan ever since. For those not familiar with his catalog, www.robertbparker.net and http://www.thrillingdetective.com/trivia/parker.html I also enjoyed, without taking them too seriously, the television vers...

Re: Bear defense tactics: Pros & cons of guns vs. bear spray

Last summer, I was within 6 feet of a black bear. Of course, I was sitting at my desk and it was outside the window looking at me. As far as firing a handgun at one: When I am out on the trails, if I encounter one (I have encountered 3 moose together on the trail, about 20 yards from me), I intend ...
