Re: Amusing DPS encounter in Hickory Creek (Denton County)

What I really, really want is something to tell me what the speed limit is at the moment and warns me if I'm over. 70 daytime, 65 night, 65 trucks, speed limit changes that are obscure and obviously there for revenue enhancement. School zones with side street entrances in the middle.... My Tom-Tom ...

Re: finally had to draw

I don't believe that having to draw is inevitable for the CHL holder. I agree it's not inevitable but most people I know who carry a gun do so because they think they may need it some day. Or as an old marine said, "When confronted by something nasty your reaction will probably be, 'I thought ...

Arguably an illegal knife (dagger) if both edges are sharpened.

And if you're not driving, you don't need to show the DL either. No requirement I know to carry ID while camping or picnicking.

The Nut who just flew an airplane into an IRS building in Austin was no coincidence. There are a growing number op people who are losing everything they have. When people have nothing to lose things get dangerous. Of course in this situation a gun wouldn’t be much help... I agree, this will become ...

Re: Yugo SKS Bayonet = Illegal Knife?

From PC 46.01: (7) "Knife" means any bladed hand instrument that is capable of inflicting serious bodily injury or death by cutting or stabbing a person with the instrument. By definition, a rifle is not a hand instrument. That would make it a handgun. Thus, the bayonet is not a knife. An...

Re: Why did the NRA choose a venue that bans guns?

Sounds like a very good reason not to go. I spend my travel dollars where I can legally read a book and carry a gun and drink coffee.

Can you explain that? Do non-residents need a CCDW class but residents with a Kentucky DL don't?
