Re: #walkaway

One of my Facebook friends invited me to join the group. Although I didn't join (I figured it might be a chance for Facebook to censor me again), I do get several "Walkaway" stories showing up on my news feed every day. I hope they are an indicator of the number of people who are turned off by the l...

Re: TX: Houston woman withdraws $75k at a bank and is robbed

There have been multiple stories about situations and the practice has even been given a term: Jugging https://www.kvia.com/crime/eppd-arrest-two-houston-men-allegedly-jugging-bank-patrons-in-el-paso/393342144 Apparently, one of the tricks is to sit back a few parking rows from the bank and watch pe...

Re: Gun free zone question

This thread will garner a lot of attention. The following is just my opinions, IANAL, and since, as you said all of these things are hypothetical, namely, because as far as I know, there have been no cases, where any of the scenarios, have occurred In my opinion, anytime someone knowingly carries p...

Re: The three amigos (professors) shot down again.

I always, wondered, what they are discussing, that would cause students, whether LTC holders, or not, to want to shoot them? Also, what has kept them from being shot, up until now? Do they believe, no one would shoot them just because it was against the law to bring a gun to their class, before cam...

Re: Can they do this?

We are playing a similar game in Denton County. The Tax Office and a DPS office were in an old building in Lewisville. There were no signs. Then, they build a new building and put a court on the upper floor. Now, there are 06, 07 signs at the entrance to the new building, though the court area is ea...

Re: Atlantic piece: John Correia of Active Self Protection. Loves his HK's.

Truly amazing compliment coming from the Atlantic: In Correia, however, I saw the perfect concealed-weapon carrier: someone who has trained to a high standard, who will avoid confrontation whenever possible, and who is much more eager to save lives with his first-aid training than to take lives wit...

Re: California Professor Charged with Assaulting 7 with Bike Lock Gets Probation

Once folks realize the legal system and "authorities" are not legitimate, at least for one segment of the population, things will start to happen to little creeps like this. The people in the Black Lives Matter movement know the score. I'm surprised more people in the TEA party don't. Many in the T...

Re: California Professor Charged with Assaulting 7 with Bike Lock Gets Probation

I didn't realize how clearly the antifa "with us or against us" rhetoric mirrors that of historic communists and fascists. I wonder how they'd respond to the accusation that they're all totalitarians whose overarching goal is to line their ideological opponents up against a wall? They would accuse ...

Re: Millenial Anti-Theft Device

This is a timely topic. Our granddaughter will turn 15 next month and wants to learn to drive stick. Our DD is Saturn Vue 5 speed so I guess I'll get the task of working with her. She expertly handles a Kubota 4 wheeler on her other grandfather's farm so it is just a matter of teaching her to deal w...

Re: TX: No place but Austin

My husband's suggestion is that they threw the renaming of the city in there so that the rest of the renaming seems "reasonable" in comparison, and they look good when they say "No, we're not renaming our city". With all due respect, your husband is in denial. Mark my words, they will fight to rena...

"Concealed carry is completely outside the boundaries of the Second Amendment" - Judge in her statement to the lawyer.

Re: How "Prepped" Are you?

I belonged to a group of people who were interested in prepping for a number of years. As part of that, I did a methodical look, from my perspective, at potential emergency situations. For example, what would happen if a toxic tank car(s) on the railroad in Ft. Worth caused a massive evacuation? I t...

Re: Man attacks teens in San antonio over MAGA hat

My greatest concern of out this incident is not the dolt to created it but the "wanna-bees" who might copy it. The harder that society comes down on the originator, the less attractive that the repeats might seem. I do understand that some are drawn to the limelight, regardless of the consequences b...
