Re: TX: Lt Gov Patrick says not enough Senate votes to pass Con Carry

The way the article quotes Patrick it appears the "law enforcement community" is opposing the bill and has some sway. Democrat run big city LE, maybe. Chicken Littles. Unlicensed carry is not a big issue for me, except that it's embarrassing that we don't yet have it. I'd rather see fewer...

Re: Clear is not a color

When one looks at the electromagnetic spectrum clear is not a color on the spectrum. Therefore any 30.06/30.07 signage composed of any color letters on a glass background does not have contrasting colors as it has only one color, the color of the letters. It makes that posting invalid. Yeah, I'm no...

Re: Fauci says gun violence is a public health issue

If you think about it, he's not wrong. Fortunately, there is a vaccine!

Don't be a criminal! Do that, and your chances of succumbing from lead poisoning go WAY down.

For some, we quarantine them (prison/jail).

Re: Hose to vote on DC statehood on Tuesday

Can anyone tell me how the dems can beat the clock on anything they dream up, no matter how off the rails, but when the Rep's had all 3 branches, we go very little done fast???? I know they are better at cheating but the timelines are pretty concrete, no? You might say their public relations depart...

Re: IN: 'Multiple victims' in shooting at FedEx facility in Indianapolis

At the risk of sounding like one of those "conspiracy theorists", I've become convinced that the online world of social media allows severely disgruntled individuals with mental issues to be "groomed" (egged on or even bullied) to commit these heinous mass crimes. "Hey, tha...

Re: Any updates?

Last night on the News (CBS11 in Dallas) the reporter repeatedly said the bill would allow "open carry", no mention of concealed. Is he just an idiot or a scaremonger? As I understand it, the bill allows CC as well as OC. The legislation pertains to carrying of a handgun. It does not rest...

I'm good with not releasing the person's name. We need to stop making these people famous.

Re: IL: 13 yo teen killed by police at 2:30 am in alley

Big difference in an isolated frame and real time, real life. I'd recommend that everyone take the time to do a use of force simulation. There is one in Las Vegas at the "Mob Museum" that is open to the public and is administered by off duty LEO's. When I did it I shot a guy with a cell p...

Re: Any updates?

I find it amusing that Rep Huberty mentioned that folks who had been calling his office to please stop....apparently the message has been heard. This is how things SHOULD work. Politely and firmly let your opinion be known. In person is best, but not always feasible. Phone calls and hand written let...

Something I came across: Urgent, action needed Texans, make those calls!! GOA Texans URGENT: Rep. Huberty is trying to weaken Constitutional Carry on 3rd Reading on the House floor today. Right now in the bill there's an exception to "gun-free" zones - if you leave when you are personally...
