Re: Post Mortem

An accomplishment I didn't see posted already: All the bad bills that didn't pass. There was a fairly lengthy list as I recall. Good defense is also good play, just not as spectacular as good offense. When there is divided government, or your party is in the minority, preventing "bad" bills is a bi...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

Do stores need to individually post 30.06 or 30.07 signs, or does the whole private property ‘no firearms’ cover everything? To cover this part of your question. The whole mall can be posted if done correctly. That would cover entry into the building and therefore any stores within the building. If...

Re: California Move to Restrict Deadly Force

For example, if I wake up at 3 AM to the sound of glass breaking and turn the corner to see a man in my house, I would think that would meet the "necessary" standard. If it does not, then I agree that this standard is overly strict. I may be wrong, but the way I read it is that unless deadly force ...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

If they choose not to post signs that comply with the requirements of 30.06 and / or 30.07, then any other signage is meaningless to an LTC holder. They could also choose to notify folks orally, or to hand out cards to everyone with the required verbiage. There is also a slight difference between 30...

Re: California Move to Restrict Deadly Force

On the surface, this doesn't seem too bad. After all, as a private citizen I would hope that I would only use deadly force if it is "necessary" to save the lives of myself or someone else. Imposing this same standard does not seem like "declaring war on cops". That said, I am not a lawyer, so I don'...

Re: Psych patient OC's past 30.06/.07's, claims he's OK to do so.

There are a multitude of reasons why the man might have been legal to OC past signs. Certain professions, VESP, signage is not compliant, etc. It's also a bit unclear as to whether he received verbal notice or a simple inquiry to which he responded. I once had an interaction with a Rudy's employee w...

Re: Testing improper signage...

I have no problems walking while concealed in an improper 30.06/07 sign. The odds of being spotted, and charged are very remote. The penalties as a class C are minor. Even if I were to be charged its hardly worth fighting. While the fight might be a matter of principle it's just not a big deal. All...

Re: Carrying on someones private property

Although I will not carry if I know there are very young kids present. Why the disconnect? It seems unreasonable that any risk brought to the table is any more or less justifiable based on age alone. Unless you're often tagged into hide-and-go-seek or pull off some crazy dance moves. But one could ...

Re: Are Pepper Guns Legal in TX?

Don't confuse him with the facts. ;-) Most people have a hard time admitting when they are wrong. It is human nature to defend your position regardless of the evidence presented against it. That's why I have great respect for people who have risen to a point where they are able to simply say "oh, I...

Heck of a deal, and heck of a good guy to deal with.

Re: ATF says bump-stocks have never been used in a crime...

If this is real, then it is extremely significant, IMHO. In the ATF's ruling that redefined bump stocks as machine guns, they cited the use of bump stocks by the Vegas shooter as one of the reasons for the rule. If they are now saying that they have no evidence that bump stocks were actually used in...

Re: Female gun ownership and the rise of fashionable "carrywear"

I think one key is that everyone needs to understand that there is a trade-off that will need to be made between comfort, appearance, and functionality. True, but it is a trade off many choose not to accept- a huge percentage of licensees don't carry, for those exact reasons. Closing that trade off...
