Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

There's a man in Kentucky right now under 24 hour armed lockdown in his home because he refused to self-quarantine. To be fair he is confirmed infected, but it supports your point regardless. It's not a big jump to enforce that kind of quarantine on someone who may be infected, or is at risk of bei...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

What scares me about government-mandated orders, is, "What happens next?" Every year flu, make their rounds. Have we opened up Pandora's box? Every year should the government mandate that everyone get a flu shot? Every year should the government be able to mandate no gatherings of more than 10 peop...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

PriestTheRunner Thank you for shedding light on the truth of this topic. Your post is a handbook of how freedom loving Americans should approach situations like that which we find ourselves in lately. Without this type of approach applied to our daily lives, we have lost our way as a people and what...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

How far will the enemies of the Constitution, both foreign and domestic, go in their quest to destroy the Republic? Live free or die. The wife and I spent the weekend in Austin with our daughter and son in law doing whatever we pleased. We ate out in restaurants, went to shopping centers, went to a...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

It’s a sad state of affairs we live in these days. How does it get up to 70 people wrongfully convicted by one corrupt officer?? How does it go on for so long without anyone stepping up to intervene?

Re: ATF proposed changes to 4473

I’m guessing that the third item is direct fallout from the Sutherland Springs church shooting. Exactly what I thought when read #3. However, this rule change means nothing until military records are shared for purposes of NICS checks and/or prosecution is brought to people who know they will fail ...

Re: Waller County

It looks like there has been movement in the right direction on this topic, glad to see the AG is busy. Meanwhile, the city of Galveston recently got a slap on the wrist. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Galveston-to-vote-on-repealing-gun-regulations-14998406.php

Re: TX: Politics of Guns in Texas

My message to Dan Patrick, and any other Texas political critter, is that we cannot afford an inch of compromise!!! These times are critical and we must draw that line in the sand lest we end up in the same situation that Virginia has unfortunately found themselves in.

Re: TX: Politics of Guns in Texas

LT Gov Dan Patrick has publicly stated his support for universal background checks to take advantage of the crisis that have happened in recent Texas history via mass shootings. He says he wants to “protect the family and the friend transfer, however stranger to stranger sales should be subjected to...

Re: Shooting at pee wee football

It is most tragic in this day and age. This incident, the one in question, occurred in a rather affluent suburb of Fort Worth. Two parents engaged in combat over the perceived slights to the fruit of their wombs. These parents let things get carried away and then BAM! If this sort of nonsense conti...

Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

I am against "universal background checks". Even if they worked perfectly, which they don't, they won't prevent these acts of violence. Perpetrators will simply switch from one tool to another. If states want to do something to keep prohibited people from owning firearms, then add a box to the stat...
