Re: FL:Jewelry Store robbery, UPS truck jacking, police chase, shoot out, 4 dead

Too many law enforcement officers think they are in military combat. I regularly see a group of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies eating lunch in camouflage uniforms - why the heck do LEO’s need camo, especially in a large metropolitan area? Too much of a military mindset. I know they have a tough, ...

Re: Americans Own 423M guns

The 8.1 billion round figure is also misleading.

That''s the number of rounds manufactured last year, and doesn't count stored rounds, which of course are impossible to count. There's a whole lot more ammo out there, and a lot more guns as well.

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

We had a great breakfast with 8 1/2 attendees (one under a year old), even though a couple of regulars couldn't make it. Great food, great conversations and lots of fun. Flightmare passed out second amendment challenge coins we'll be bringing to future meetings, and he who forgets his buys the coffe...

Re: Police Officers should not draw their guns on a suspect with a knife

A few months ago we had a suspect shot and killed by a Deputy, after the deputy was stabbed. Suspect was from Georgia IIRC. Different situations require different responses. If the answer to the question of whether there is any option other than deadly force for protecting innocent life in a given ...

Re: Police Officers should not draw their guns on a suspect with a knife

Although the article presents the chief's thoughts with pretty muddy reasoning, I suspect what the chief is trying to get at is officers should get away from "leading with the gun" and use deadly force only as a last resort. It's the difference between "can I shoot him" thinking instead of asking on...

Re: 3/4 of Transgender people murdered since 2017, killed with gun

I suspect this statistic says more about the social circles these folks moved in than it does about the instruments involved in their deaths.

Re: Defense Plan Without Firearm Worked Tonight

Your very well designed plan did exactly what it was supposed to do. It stopped a major criminal attack at its very earliest stage and prevented a confrontation that would have been much worse for all involved if it had reached that stage. Kudos for your planning, your commitment to investment in yo...

I've been trying to make time for a Saturday motorcycle ride for this breakfast but life keeps getting in the way. I have some good friends in Aledo I'd visit afterwards, so it'd be a triply worthwhile trip.

Hope to see you soon.
We'd love to have you join us!
