The homeowner could not follow simple directions.

He only gave him a bullet instead of the gun. :-)

Consider it a 'test drive'. Perp probably doesn't want it now.

Re: Handgun VS Knife

The cop at least followed the rule of, don't stop shooting until the threat has stopped. Or in this case, the threat was on top of him. Unless you get a CNS shot or mechanically break them down (pelvis shot) I would fully expect a determined attacker to continue on for something close to 30-45 seco...

Re: Best of the West Closed

What a shame. My favorite place to shoot long range. Urban Sprawl claims another shooting range. Earlier this summer my Daughter wanted to do some Long Range Shooting (specifically 1 mile) so we had to go out to the Austin Gun Club, a drive that takes you nearly to Lampasas. Hate it the BOTW is clos...

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...

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.
