Re: What were your political leanings at 18 years old?

There wasn't a choice for me, as I was a conservative Democrat (yes there were conservatives in the Democrat Party back then). I changed to the Republican Party with Reagan. My family is originally all from Kentucky and Georgia. Before Jimmy Carter, most of them did vote Democrat. Even though conse...

Re: Sheila Jackson Lee: House members will have to flood the Senate floor

Why wasn't she held accountable for her two lies under oath? I would imagine because it would be hard to prove she 'knowingly and willfully' stated something 'untrue'. She isn't the brightest person you'll ever meet. There is a difference in just being 'wrong' and knowingly attempting to deceive. T...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

If the so called “loophole” is closed, the result will be that the likely minuscule number of criminals obtaining firearms at gun shows or from law abiding strangers would become even less. Criminals who are already selling firearms to other criminals are not going to start obeying another law. It’...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

No waiting periods. Period I've given 'waiting periods' considerable thought over the years and can only come up with a single situation where it 'might' be beneficial and that is in cases where a person is distraught and wants to end their life (suicide) that very day. It is possible that with the...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

I might be misunderstanding the meaning and intent of the poll. We already have a MANDATORY universal background check for purchasing firearms. It goes through the FBI. In which case, the poll makes 0 sense to me. And it seems a little biased with not exactly an exhaustive list of options for answe...

https://www.gao.gov/assets/700/694290.pdf ATF Referred about 13,000 Firearms Denials to Its Field Divisions for Investigation in Fiscal Year 2017, of Which USAOs Have Prosecuted 12 Cases. Yep a whole twelve! Might not hurt to tighten things up a little in this case. Different than 'expanding' backgr...

Also at the NRA Personal Protection Expo, Paul Howe said we should stop using the left's terminology of "active shooter," instead using "active mass killer".
Fortunately his facility is right here in my neighborhood and the PD here (Swat Team) get a lot of their training there.

Re: What would YOU do?

Hypothetical question: You, your SO and maybe your spawn, are in your neighborhood Walmart on a Saturday afternoon looking for bird feed, kitty litter, and some snackers, mixers, etc. Suddenly, you hear what you perceive to be gunshots! You are legally carrying your fully loaded, cocked and locked ...

Re: TX: Seguin man holsters gun discharging into his testicle

Was his other region ok? Hopefully he has a full recovery and "operates" as usual! I'm thinking yes, and that would explain why he was in such 'good spirits'. IF you have to be shot, best for it to happen to parts of your anatomy that come in pairs. What I am confused about...is the location of his...

Re: TX: 18yo walks to Walmart open carrying 2 Air Soft guns just to see what would happen

Good Night Nurse! I am beginning to think millennials are all severely brain damaged. This was just nothing short of a stupid move. I to like blamin’ millennials for most anything also but only when the age fits. I don’t think 18yo is a millennial. I like to blame baby boomers and generation y for ...
