Re: Shooting dogs

Sjambok http://imgur.com/cKVH3Xj Not to hijack, but do you know if the synthetic ones on ebay are worth it? No, not to hijack, but actually the sjambok originated in Africa. Ask any old time professional hunter. They were made from a rhinocerous penis that had been stretched out and dried (after ki...

Re: Guidance regarding dog attacks

I've often wondered about this as well. I appreciate the cites above, but your additions in red are your own interpretations and embellishments, and don't carry the weight of law. The next cite shows weirdness in the code: it only applies to dogs attacking animals or livestock. People aren't mention...

Re: Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Active Shooter

For me, the most significant aspect of this whole incident is his motivation, especially considering the time he invested in it. He went to a LOT of trouble to plan and set this up, over a long period of time. That tends to rule out "trigger" events. ISIS involvement seems unlikely; if he'...

Re: Shooting looters

In Texas, if you loot i.e.burglarize you are subject to the use of deadly force against you. I don't think so, if it's somebody else's property and it's daylight. So if it's an emergency and you see a couple of punks throwing a brick through a window and grabbing stuff, you can raise your AR and le...

Shooting looters

When something like Houston happens, there's always lots of talk about shooting looters. I saw some guys holding ARs behind a big sign in some Houston neighborhood, guarding it. The sign said "U Loot, We Shoot." I'm sure a lot of us feel the same way. But realistically, what would be the l...

Re: Dallas activists press for Confederate monument to come down

This is the group pushing back hardest against the left wing radicals. They are currently engaging in a lawsuit to stop the removal of statues in Dallas: http://www.titff.org/ That sounded interesting, until I saw those bozos running around in tac gear. Don't they realize that throws their credibil...

Now I wonder if they'll also remove the offending coffee mugs, refrigerator magnets, etc. in the Six Flags gift shops.

Six Flags is history...

Guess y'all heard what happened to Six Flags. One of the flags was a (gasp, shudder....) confederate flag. So they not only removed it, but removed all 5 of the others and replaced them with just 6 U.S. flags. So, no more "Six Flags Over Texas." Sigh.....

Re: What would you do

Then there's the nitpicking question of just WHEN you would intervene with deadly force. After he hit him one time? Two times? Two hits and a kick? Do it too early, and you're sticking your neck out legally. Do it too late and, well, it's too late. Myself..... defending myself or my family is one th...

Re: Seattle gun tax failure? Firearm sales plummet, violence spikes after law passes

When I was a kid 5 or 6 years old, we lived in the agricultural country near Modesto, CA. It was a beautiful place, with dairy cows and farms and flowers everywhere, and we loved going to Modesto. Now Modesto is a gang-infested sewer, one of the worst places in the country. Sad. Guess they need stri...

Re: Sign to Support Property Tax Reform - Lt. Gov. Patrick

The fantasy that our taxes will somehow decrease is just that, a fantasy. The states, counties, and all the rest of the taxing entities will still get their quartof blood even if property taxes are decreased. Once they get their teeth in your leg they don't let go. My feeling as well. I suspect thi...
