Exactly. And neither does criticizing open carry show a lack of respect for the 2nd Amendment. I and other posters here who do that aren't the government.

Re: Would You Tell?

The other problem is that more than likely there will be LTC’s in the church who will not be on the security team. How will the police chief identify those as good guys? Because of this I find his logic for requesting photos is flawed. It would seem anyone not on the security team not identified wo...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

Why do police officers open carry? Uniformed officers open carry because they're in uniform, and police officers in the US are all armed. Police officers in plainclothes seem to conceal most of the time. If a criminal sees a uniformed cop, since the criminal knows the officer is carrying, then conc...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

Isn’t that special. Your sharing your contempt for those who decide to exercise their freedom in a different manner as yourself. It's not incompatible to think that the right to OC should exist and also think that it's a bad idea for the vast majority of people the vast majority of the time. People...

Re: Honolulu PD begins confiscation of registered guns...

It's not that difficult. If you don't want your guns taken away, don't commit what is still a disqualifying federal crime for firearm possession. This is about Medical Marijuana It could be a difficult choice if you are treating a disease that a marijuana product will alleviate. There are some illn...

My memory out of state LEO's can't bring their guns into the State when they visit, even on business. State law may say that, but it's overridden by LEOSA.

Re: Crypto-currencies

There's other problems with Bitcoin: 1. It takes a long time to verify transactions. It used to be minutes, but now the average verification time is about an hour. I guess that might still be acceptable if you're using Bitcoin as a Paypal replacement, but if people want to make Bitcoin a common meth...

My investment has doubled in that time - sure, it swings up and down but I'm hodling for the longer term. As for Bitcoin - one respected analyst thinks it could hit $40k easily. John McAfee says 1 BTC will be worth $1M by the end of 2020, or he will do something on live TV which I'm not allowed to ...

Re: Would You Favor Special Privilege?

No. What would be the justification? Texas LTC licensees are (as a group) already more law-abiding than Texas peace officers (as a group), and those peace officers can carry in any of the places which might be added. What training could a prospective super-licensee undergo which would actually make ...

Re: Why do we need 30.06/7?
