Re: Thinking About Defense of Others

By all reports I saw he was not armed. Having served 8 years in the military I am not demeaning anyone on the basis of their military experience. To die protecting Kay Jewelry property is not my idea of smart and now his wife and children don't have a husband/father. I would rather be alive than a ...

Re: Thinking About Defense of Others

I suspect that the first good samaritan was not armed and although brave was stupid. There's no reason to suspect he was not armed, he was a law abiding citizen who was not carrying a handgun inside a 30.06/30.07 posted location. There's also no reason to demean a former U.S. Marine because he chos...

Re: Thinking About Defense of Others

Apparently Kay's Jewelers doesn't care if you are able to protect yourself as they are 30.06/07. There were two good samaritans, one is no longer with us. One took down a BG. I suspect that the first good samaritan was not armed and although brave was stupid. The second guy was armed and at least h...

Re: Convince me that constitutional carry is a good thing

Doug, you are a better man than most. I just don't trust kids that couldn't even make it out of high school to be safe with a gun. I understand your reluctance to have state control. Perhaps as mentioned every kid in high school has to take gun safety (that will never happen). The point is that the...

Re: Outragous - Dicks Sporting Goods

Is it the credit card company that is asking or is it Dick's? I have shopped at stores and bought ammo where the clerk was reminded by the cash register to make sure I am old enough (yes) and that is probably store policy to protect them just like selling alcohol. I doubt this is the credit card co...

Re: Eye Surgery

About cataracts, I have had cataract surgery on both eyes before my vitrectomy. I did not have any sutures with my surgery that I remembered. For me it was a mild surgery and in actuality I was awake for a good part of it. Same with the cataracts, awake and no pain. I am again going to wish you good...

Re: Eye Surgery

I had a vitrectomy and retinal surgery in my right eye some years ago. Out patient by a retinal specialist in Arlington. Eye patch overnight and followed by an exam in his office the next day and then home to Wichita Falls. Was really no big deal. Best of luck with your surgery. PM me if you want to...

I have never heard that phrase. The owner was crawfishing. I have other slang words I would use but that is a different topic.
