Re: TN: Permit Holder Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder

Perhaps knowing the exact timeline would help. From the included story, it appears that Coleman's wife was one with the initial confrontation. Since she had time to go and get her husband, there would seem to be some opportunity to find some way to contact the police and avoid further physical confr...

Re: Virginia Allows CC in Bars and Restaurants

Given the strong anit-gun stands in D.C. and Maryland, how is that Virgina can get a law like this passed? Perhaps the majority of the poplulation, through its elected representatives, doesn't by in anti-gun campaign? Or is it just a stronger lobbying effort by the 2nd amendment group in VA?

Re: Percentage who actually carry

TAM is correct, there's no way to know what percentage of CHL's carry or in what frequency. In my renewal classes, the vast majority of people say they carry often or all the time, but many people in my initial classes simply don't know. Initial students seem to fall into one of two categories; som...

Percentage who actually carry

The news reports about those getting CHLs to bypass the long visitor lines at the Texas Capitol raises another question. On WBAP in the the Dallas area, they were discussing the fact that many who were getting CHLS for the Capitol never intended to carry guns. The commentator went on to say that the...

Re: June 2010 applications

This was the worst part of my wait. Thinking that your application is still sitting in a pile in the mail room. Once I got status, everything seemed to move along nicely. The worst part is not being sure that the application is moving a long at all. My status showed up last week and, today, there w...

Re: June 2010 applications

My online status finally showed up today, too, with background check and fingerprints under review. Looks like I'm in the same "landing" pattern as others. I was worried that I was going to get diverted to another airport :lol: I assume that the "under review" status means that what they have is acc...

Re: NY Mosque

I'm a strong believer in freedom of worship. I believe that everyone should have the right to worship as they please as long as they don't use that right for political purposes. I believe that the NY Mosque is just that - and extension of religion for political purposes. Why? Let's focus outside of ...

Re: Trip to NH

The NY and NJ Port Authority police have effectively taken the position that the FOPA does not apply, even though their arrests are not subsequently supported by the DAs and court. And if I'm not mistaken, the Port Authority also controls all of the bridges into NY and patrols those areas. That is ...

Re: Trip to NH

Thanks for the reply, DavidTX. I've done some more reading since my post which you answered. I, too, came to the conclusion that the airport is one set of circumstances for NJ and NY and that transit in both States is another one. For us, NJ is never a destination. It might be a stop on the way as i...
