Re: Would you go through more CHL training?

I would be happy to if it would allow me to carry nationally. My driver's license is valid in every state partly because all states require similar training to drive a car. The same can't be said of licenses to carry. People are concerned about the "redneck" who has little if any training in handlin...

Re: What to say when people ask "why would you ever need a gun?"

This was posted on another forum. I think it is one of the most convincing things you could show to a person who asked why you should carry. If it did not convince them or at least make them understand why you do, I don't know what would. Warning, don't play this with kids in the room. It's scary. h...

Re: Todays Schools

Don't get me started. I think the time has come to take back education through conservative schools where learning what it takes to make an honest and honorable living gets more attention than carrying a ball, discovering your sexual orientation, or being brainwashed by the liberal agenda. I'd love ...

Re: Bloomberg's at it again

Those who sold guns to the person after he indicated he could not pass the background check broke existing laws. Those who allowed straw purchases broke existing laws. I fail to see how "closing the gun show loophole" would stop this. These same people would just sell privately off the internet,out ...

Re: Interesting experience with HPD on 290 just now

Maybe he was the same whack job that drove at speeds exceeding 120mph on the freeway without lights or siren about 4 months ago. Why? On the way to a fire? A murder in progress? Nope. He was just taking three prisoners to be booked into jail for a misdemeanor offense. I know one of the guys and he w...

Re: Police officer shoots dangerous attack dog

So, did witnesses agree the tiny dog was actually trying to attack the brave officer? I'm guessing he says it was because that is the only possible thing he could say for shooting the dog for merely running up barking. I agree with another poster who commented that this officer's inability to assess...

Re: Day after disaster

When I was in grade school in the early 60's, we had A-Bomb drills regularly. At the age of 6, I remember kneeling under my desk with my hands over my head wondering why people far far away would want to send a bomb to blow us all to bits. There was high tension and I actually believed it likely I w...

Re: In The Wee Hours of the Morning

I think these stories make the case for how important it is to make certain of the target no matter how sure you are it is an intruder. My grandmother came mighty close to shooting her grandson when he was trying to unlock her front door late one night. She did not know her phone was out and the fam...

Re: AZ: Homeowner shot by Phoenix police files lawsuit

IF the facts are as stated, and they have the 911 tape then I would imagine that those LEO's need to become inmates at Sherrif Joe's tent city. (including the sargent) To me it would have been much better if they admitted they made a mistake in the heat of the moment and man up about it. :mad5 As f...

Re: Beating Death

Words fail me. The brutality and zeal with which they attacked him. As if all they have inside them is hate and the rush of adrenaline to kill. This is why I finally understood those of us these kind prey on must be willing to defend ourselves. They will give no mercy. Criminals such as these enjoy ...

Re: Man Arrested for owning too Much Ammo

So...does Texas have any laws against how much ammo you can have in your home or your car? There was an incident where two CHL's were stopped in Austin. One of the men commented in the story he didn't want to give permission to the officer to search his car because he had just purchased a lot of amm...
