Charles’ bill needs a catchy name, and we need to come up with it before the anti-gun press does.

I propose

Or

“Common Sense Carry”.

Branding is important.
If you want it to pass, call it the Texas Safe Schools Bill

Re: Can We All Have Differences of Opinion?

On quite a variety of topic some folks seem overwrought if another member expresses a difference of opinion. Must you agree with me? Of course not...nor I you. Can we agree to disagree civilly? Yes, yes we can. Maybe it's just me noticing of late it seems if I (and others too, of course) think subj...

Re: Curious as to what the instructors/“experts” carry?

If I were advising a newer person on guns to check out for EDC, I would go with the following 4 and have them carry whichever one they like the best. As far as size goes, the biggest one tha...
