Re: I'm Beginning To Believe It!

Ran across this image in Google Maps Street View from 2016. Anyone know if the Medina Lake County Park near Lakehills is still posted 30.06 & 30.07?

Re: Super Tuesday results it ain’t purdy

When early voting started, I pulled a sample ballot from the county election dept.'s website. Didn't recognize a lot of the names. Went on the net and researched them. Figured out who the RINO's were. Voted against them. Voted toward the end of early voting. Sic semper RhINOceras.... :fire We need t...

Re: TX: Houston homeowner shoots intruder in legs

WHEN does it become unlawful entry justifying deadly force under castle doctrine? When the individual ATTEMPTS to breach the door (window, chimney, ventilator, etc), or when the individual BREACHES the door (etc., etc.)?

Re: TX: Houston homeowner shoots intruder in legs

- Deputy Salgado carries two or more torniquets, apparently. Food for thought there. - unless somebody had eyes on the intruder from a window, or a security cam, the homeowner was clearly kissing off Cooper Rule #4. That could be a problem in court... - one hit on each leg in a target you can't see....

Re: TSRA = Texas State Rifle Association. All Texas gun owners should join.

I see that Life Member - Senior is only $300.00, and they have an installment option. Very nice. :mrgreen:
On the minus side, their website does not seem to have a 'Search' button or menu item. I had to use Google to find out their definition of 'Senior' is 65 and up. :totap:

Re: TX: Katy homeowner shoots intruder inside his home

You can be sued and will have to defend. Judge will probably dismiss, but you still will be out time and money. Also note the the immunity is for personal injury or death, not for property. So if he breaks his antique Mickey Mouse watch falling down the stairs from my shooting him during his commis...
