Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Reciprocity in my thoughts . Too risky . Studying the concealed carry law for a long trip is complicated with too many risks . Rather than suffering prosecution in other states I simply do not carry , reducing my travel . Would love to take my daughter to national parks and historical sites but not...

Re: Licensed but don't carry? Why?

I carry every day that I can. Unfortunately, my workplace has a "no firearms" policy that extends to the parking lot - even though that is unenforceable. The prospect of carrying to work and then disarming in the parking lot is not appealing as there is significantly more opportunity for s...

Re: Concealed carry by school employees

It seems the fact that I have continually stated I don't believe an LTCer is a safety risk on a campus is repeatedly ignored. If there is no safety risk, why would you restrict it? You seem to be conflating the behavior of people within the school with the fact that those people happened to be LTC ...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Dems are also all but openly admitting that they don't care who POTUS nominates for SCOTUS tonight, they will... do anything else they can do to oppose him or her. ... It won't be about about the quality and credentials of the judge, it will be purely partisan because it's DJT's nomination. Disgrac...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Now imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and Hillary had won and was now doing a lot through executive action, there was talk of the nuclear option on confirming a new member of SCOTUS... Would we like that? Would she be praised for her bold leadership or would the media still be trying to fig...

Re: Shooting Situation at Rolling Oaks Mall San Antonio

Wonder why they have not identified the perp in critical condition at the hospital? My guess is that they don't know who he is (I doubt that) or for some reason unknown to us they have refused to provide his identity. They did: Jose Rojas, 34, who was injured during the botched robbery turned shoot...

Re: And they stand adjourned again...

I think this is pretty typical This is why it gets so chaotic in March-May Yep. Going back the last two, I've noticed a similar pattern. Most of the floor work is done in April and May. 84th Legislature (2015) January 15-20 January 22-26 January 29- February 2 February 5-9 (February 4-9) February 1...

Let's see... Texas Legislature meets for 140 days every two years. The 85th Legislature officially began on January 10, 2017. Since then, there have been 3 concurrent resolutions filed granting permission for the legislature to adjourn for more than 3 days. SCR 7 Author: Whitmire Sponsor: Kuempel La...

Re: Shooting Situation at Rolling Oaks Mall San Antonio

No, we don't know the sequence of events. But I guess we can conclude that every armed robber acts the same way and is very predictable. If you leave them alone, they always leave peacefully. That's how I was trained. If you arrive at the scene of an armed robbery and the suspect is still there, do...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Keep in mind the House and Senate are adjourned until Monday, January 23. Our 140 day session once every 2 years has been shortened to effectively 126 days this biennium due to the inauguration in Washington DC this week. Keep that in mind when they run out of time to discuss important legislation.
