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: City Owned Property & Signs

I know this is in in Georgia but maybe Texas could use similar aspects from this case to prevent stadiums from posting that are government owned. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/nfl-atlanta-falcons-mercedes-benz-stadium-may-soon-be-open-to-concealed-carry/ At issue is whether a private party leasi...

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

Carlson1 I can’t quote the specific law but I was under the impression that only 80% lowers were not allowed to be sold and can only be used by the original buyer/person who completed the machining. If someone wants to buy an off the shelf, serialized stripped lower receiver and assemble it into a w...

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...

Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

There is a private gun seller in a lot of trouble right now. Maybe not.He would have had to KNOWINGLY sell to a felon. yes, and this is exactly why the private sale loophole needs to be closed. it's common sense, we cant have mentally deranged or autistic or retardeds out there buying assault rifle...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

I completely agree with Oldgringo here. Whataburger, HEB, Target, and many others with these policies appear to me to be saying we're ok with being agnostic to concealed carry. Doesn't seem that inconvenient to plan for this and just put your shirt over your holster when you go into one of these pl...

Re: Private gun sales

You can’t sale to a known criminal. So if they are from Texas and as for as you know they are not a convicted criminal or showing signs of insanity you are legal to sale. However you do have some responsibility not to just sale to anyone and it should be that way. Careful now, statements like this ...

I’m just assuming this is one of the drivers for their policy change, unless you have facts to share that haven’t been posted yet.

Re: Walmart has fallen!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but posting no open carry (30.07) in Texas only precludes licensed individuals from carry handguns and not long rifles? How would this prevent the El Paso incident or the Missouri guy from openly carrying a rifle? I’m assuming these events are the drivers behind releasing su...

Road Rage in Willis; LTC involved

The thread about road rage in Austin prompted me to post this here. According to the article, the alleged suspect had a LTC which has since been revoked. Shawn Paul Corriston, 46, of Spring, is being charged with disorderly conduct by displaying a firearm, a Class B misdemeanor. A Pct. 2 deputy was ...
