Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

They have a lot of stuff to do, other than just pass or kill gun bills Yeah, this is something a lot of people lose sight of. Skim through this list of filed House bills. Note the topics. http://www.legis.state.tx.us/Reports/Report.aspx?LegSess=85R&ID=housefiled We're just a drop in the bucket....

Re: Reciprocity and signage if 375/1911 passes???

According to the press release for HB1911, a new sign called 30.08 would be created to prevent carry by unlicensed persons. This sign would apply to unlicensed open carry and concealed carry, but would not apply to persons with an LTC. A couple of things jump out at me from this: - So businesses wa...

Reciprocity and signage if 375/1911 passes???

All kinds of what-if questions arise from these bills. So if unlicensed carry becomes legal, what will be the new signage requirements for businesses that don't want to permit concealed and/or open carry? The current 06/07 signage will be obsolete (again...). They won't be happy about it, for sure, ...

Re: What is CSHB 1911?

The 1911 hearing just finished. 1911 was withdrawn and left pending. Not sure about 375.

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

Kory Watkins up in a moment. That will be about as much as I can take. I'm sure I'll be able to shut off the live stream then. He just used the old 2nd amendment line. You can't restrict something we have a constitutional right to do, etc. One erroneous claim that being frequently made is that it r...

Cripes, he said they have over NINETY people waiting to testify. Half of them will probably be Moms reading the same text. In any case, I can't watch the whole thing.

Re: Watched Hacksaw Ridge last night

My father in law, Vasily, grew up in Russia. During WW II, the Germans were sweeping across some rural areas and just slaughtering everybody - men, women, children. Vasily was 6 years old; a German soldier walked up to him with a pistol in his hand, and then saw that Vasily had a lighter colored hai...

Re: What would you do?

On a more serious note (from my last post). It seems Texas law allows for deadly force in protection of property, or against criminal mischief at night. I wonder if this is because deadly force doesn't HAVE to kill someone, only have the potential/possibility to. When you talk about "taking a ...

Re: Convince me that constitutional carry is a good thing

...the 30.06 sign postings have continued to increase ... That's another thing that worries me. A senator's assistant told me last year that if we were so concerned about the explosion in 06 signs after the last session, we should have left well enough alone. Before the last session, 06 signs were ...
