Re: What Is Your Opinion

Legal TABC blue sign, legal 30.06 sign, and illegal 30.07 notice. Also when the doors are open and it is concealed through 'double' tinted glass I doubt it would be noticeable. Considering its only a class C misdemeanor and disputing the charge in court would entail taking a picture of the doors (w...

Re: The Kavanaughing of Neomi Rao - Trump Judge nominee

I read about this earlier today, but I think it was at AmericanThinker.com. Anyway, the article made the point that asking these people about their religious beliefs (“Ms Rao, do you believe that gay marriage is a sin?”) is actually a violation of their powers under Article VI of the Constitution. ...

Re: HB 1376 - Documentation of and limitations on Private Firearms sales

They are different bills, just filed sequentially by the same author. Yes, they are both terrible as the essentially create gun registration for law abiding citizens. Gun registration is enough reason to oppose these bills. But this one also makes it impossible for many law abiding gun owners to se...

Re: HB 1387 - Increasing the Allowable Number of School Marshals

I'm trying to figure out why you would ever want to have a limit in the first place, and am drawing a blank.

Re: HB 1376 - Documentation of and limitations on Private Firearms sales

OK this is even worse than the other post about this bill (assuming its the same bill). It also would require a loosening of FFL requirements. My HOA does not allow me to have a home based business. My understanding is that this would make it impossible for me to get a FFL license. So there would be...

Re: HB 1166 - Fines for Signs Modifications

How about we get rid of "fines for signs" entirely and just make it clear that anyone who wrongly restricts a license holder from carrying on government owned property will receive no immunity for their actions. Retraining said license holder would make the offender guilty of assault, and/or false i...

Re: HB 1123 - First Responder Deisgnation on LTC

In a word - NO! How about we eliminate off limit areas for LTC instead. No special class of people getting anything different than all citizens. :iagree: If a private property owner doesn't want anyone to enter unless specifically invited, they can post a big "No Trespassing" sign. If they want peo...

Re: TX: Physical altercation preceded deadly shooting of coach in Cedar Park

It's interesting that the shooter has already been charged with murder. That was a quick investigation considering that the shooter has lawyered up and presumably did not make any incriminating statements. The fact that the shooting happened on the shooters property would seem to indicate that he wa...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

My wife works as a consultant for schools, and she just so happened to be working at an elementary school that is a couple blocks from this house (she tends to work with the lowest performing schools, which tend to also be in pretty bad neighborhoods). Fortunately, the raid occurred after schools ha...

Re: HB 1123 - First Responder Deisgnation on LTC

I'd support this if anyone who completes the stated training is eligible. There is no reason to limit this just to those employed as first responders. Their employers should also get the same rights.

Re: Making a provoctive clothing choice

Trashing someone's car because of a political bumper sticker, or assaulting them (verbally or physically) for wearing a piece of clothing with a political message. How are these things not examples of voter intimidation? If I (a white male) go up to a group of black kids who are wearing hats / shirt...

Re: TX: Uvalde professional boxer vs 12 yo intruder who is who is kicking down his front door

This story pretty much sums up why everyone needs to have a firearm accessible to them at all times. If a professional boxer can't protect himself against a 12 year old kid, then there is little hope for ordinary people who choose to be unarmed. The only silver lining I can see is that this guy like...

Re: TEOTWAWKI…For Real

My understanding the large transformers you see at power substations, those are made in Europe and it takes two years from time of order to delivery! That there is no "stockpile" of those, no ready replacements! Funny that everybody acknowledges the threat of an EMP but little of a CME, we have bee...
