Re: Torchy's removes Republican and Independent tacos from Menu

I was curious and looked around and found this article attributing it's pull from the menu to the fact that it was the lowest seller.

OK News: Man shoots woman taking his Nazi flag

I didn't look up OK law but I suspect this guys is in serious trouble. From the article it sounds like she stole his Nazi flag from outside his house and was running away when he shot her. So a theft but no break in to vehicle or home, no mention of a weapon and running away. https://www.foxnews.com...

Re: Need help opening ports

Not the modem however there is another possibility. Some ISP's block particular ports, discouraging people from running a server at home. I googled comcast / xfinity and came up with this list they say they are blocking. Good luck. https://business.comcast.com/help-and-support/internet/ports-blocked...

Re: DPS unveils new design for LTC card

One last question on the card please. What is the reasoning behind not being able to have it on your phone (not carrying physical card)? You can have your credit card on it, why not driver lic or LTC? Great forum. Now understand why LTC not built into driver license. Even if you could so you want t...

Re: Mass shooter stopped

I always wonder what is the demarcation point between a shooter and mass shooter? How much ammo makes a shooter a mass shooter? I've had the same question for a while now. I do not know of any legal definition of a "mass shooter" or "mass shooting". It seems that it is in the eye of the beholder, a...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Another thought, I thought this was manslaughter, if there were no other facts that came out to contradict the story that she mistakenly entered that apartment. It makes me wonder if how that was presented was not believed by the jury. If they didn't believe that then I'm curious what was believed ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

I have not followed this case closely but here are a couple thoughts: Her lawyer must have thought there was no chance without having her testify. IANAL but I think once he calls her then she has waived her right to plead the 5th to an individual question. Not sure about that but I think that's what...

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: Would you support this gun private purchase restriction

The gun seller would be required to keep the letters for five years. Failure to get the letters or to keep them would subject the seller to civil liability should the person commit a crime with the gun sold to them. Other issues aside, I'm not up for something that makes me liable for the actions o...

Re: Dems threaten SCOTUS over upcoming 2A case

As was stated earlier, manipulating the number of Justices is how they can remake the court. Here is some quick history (from https://www.history.com/news/7-things-you-might-not-know-about-the-u-s-supreme-court) 2. There haven’t always been nine justices on the court. The U.S. Constitution establis...
