Re: Deadly force to stop animal cruelty?

I believe that RoyGBiv has the key point correctly. Animal are considered property under Texas law as far as I know. Therefore, look at Sections 9.42, 9.42, and 9.43 for the legal justifications for using force. Animal cruelty is not one of the crimes listed, so the best you might be able to get to ...

Re: Biden to Nominate Gun Control Activist as ATF Director

https://youtu.be/mRmPNQNOsEQ As a compromise, I would pay 200 and register it if I could drill the 3rd hole and have the rock and roll setting on the selector. I love the "Its just a background check and prints" to get an NFA item. If it was "just" that, why does it take months ...

Re: Danger, Will Robinson

I got married in 1976 while I was in the Army. When I got out in 78, we moved to my home town of Philadelphia. My wife did not like it there and wanting to keep her happy, I moved to where her family was in the Houston area. I went back into the Army in 79 and got out again in 83 (for good). When it...

Re: New Maryland Police "Reform"

Saw a video of police officer pepper spraying a LT of the U.S Army over the weekend. I will wait until facts come out in order to determine if the LT was at fault or was it just that the officer had a bad day and just took out his frustrations on a person that serves our country. It only takes one ...

Re: Ghost Guns

I believe the specific case that Biden referred to, and that touched this all off, was that a company put together kits that had everything needed to build a complete firearm with the lower being an 80% lower. It included all the interior parts for the lower, the barrel, slide, etc. I have a vague m...

Re: Biden to Nominate Gun Control Activist as ATF Director

I have no respect for anyone who would propose to violate the US Constitution. In many cases, I will agree that the Constitution is vague enough to allow for proposals I disagree with. But I have yet to meet an anti-gun activist who can answer this one question satisfactorily: Regardless of how I fe...

Re: Coverage of the Derek Chauvin Trial in death of George Floyd

We can disagree. I have 4 close friends and one family member in LE. They are disgusted by this so called officer. One of the great parts of this country and this forum is that we can always simply agree to disagree. And the fact that we may disagree on this one point means nothing on any other poi...

Re: Biden Plans Thursday Executive Action On Guns

That ship had sailed. You can't stop the signal! Zero percent lower. Going to have to outlaw printers and plastic. You're right of course. I was so busy thinking of the 80% lowers and machining them that I completely forgot bout the 3D printing aspect. And for any of the plastic guns, it should not...

Re: Biden Plans Thursday Executive Action On Guns

I am curious how he will define what is a ghost gun to require background checks. If he claims it is a lower than is 80% finished, I predict an immediate change in lowers to sell them at 75% done. I don't know how you decide that percentage anyway. I can just see this. Anyone who wants to buy any bl...

Re: Coverage of the Derek Chauvin Trial in death of George Floyd

If you guys think that having a knee pressed on your neck for over 9 minutes is irrelevant/kosher and most of all a humane way to treat a human being, regardless what he might have ingested, after he offered no resistance any more, went completely limp and yet remained in the knee to the neck posit...

Re: HB 121

I believe someone misinterpreted the wording of the law. It is a crime to walk past a properly posted 30.06/07 sign. You can be cited for this with a class C misdemeanor ticket. This is a valid citation IF no other actions take place. For example, if you are carrying with your LTC and ignore the si...

Re: HB 121

Took my legal update from TCOLE and it spoke briefly about HB 121. What I gathered is the 06/07 signs are moot until you receive verbal warning to leave. Can someone elaborate on this? Thanks.

Re: Coverage of the Derek Chauvin Trial in death of George Floyd

So far, I have only one complaint with Mr. Branca's coverage of the trial. He has stated, repeatedly, that the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin is guilty, including showing the way he caused the death. I agree with this in theory. That is the principle of our criminal judicial...

Re: Coverage of the Derek Chauvin Trial in death of George Floyd

I am willing to bet my house that this officer that kept his knee on this guys neck is regretting that decision everyday. I can’t imagine putting my knee on somebody’s neck for that long. Others may find it ok but not me as a humane person. He will be found guilty. You do realize that these three l...
