Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

Gotta love CNN:

Article on the front page of CNN under the headline: "Shooter's history puts Texas gun laws in the spotlight".

Re: Going to Austin. State capital question.

similar question. Last year when I visited the capital I went solo and used the express entrance, next time I will probably take my son. Does he get to follow me through the express lane or do I have to accompany him through the mere mortal entrance? You have to send him through the normal line. Bu...

Re: Feinstein : 'I Don't Know' of a Gun Law That Could Have Stopped Las Vegas Shooting

"I don't know of a gun law that could have stopped the Las Vegas shooting, but that won't stop me from trying to come up with something to further my agenda of banning private ownership of anything that can hurl a projectile at another individual."

Re: Legal sign?

I work part time at a shelter in Texas. We currently have both 30.06 and 30.07 signs posted. We are a non-profit that receives funds from HHSC and VOCA. However, we currently lease the building out for $1 a year from our city. Am I correct that if the city owns it, the signs should come down, much ...

Re: Update Question

No news, no news and glacially slowly. We may see enforcement by the next ice age at this point, but that is generally how fast the justice system works anyway.

Re: Time to move

That is why you use a good Realtor. And that is an oxymoron. :mad5 In my experience, that's not true unless you just walk into a real estate office and ask for any agent. You need to qualify an agent in the same manner as you would an attorney. If you do that, you will very likely have a very satis...

Re: The Bigotry of gun controllers

My brother in law has a CA ccw. Same thing, simple paper with laminate (since they are done by the county maybe each is different?). Plus, he can only carry the exact gun he applied with, max 3 on the permit if I remember correctly. Not just the same model, but the same serial number... The problem...

Re: TX: Fed Judge Dismisses UT Profs Campus Carry Lawsuito

How 'chilling' would a concealed firearm be or is OC going to be allowed? (obviously I'm not well versed in this subject...) Now they don't know if there could be a person who legally has a handgun there so they must now be careful about what they say in case said handgun decides to go off. Because...

Re: This Texting While Driving is really starting to get to me!

Yes, new technology could stop it, but when will that be available? It's all software so it could be as early as tomorrow. Companies could "push" the fireware upgrade. If you would put your effort into getting the feds to require this very simple software change, rather than calling for i...

Re: This Texting While Driving is really starting to get to me!

Papa_Tiger, Please quote me where I said More Laws would be effective to stop texting and driving? If I did I was wrong. I want to stop texting and driving, but I don't think I stated new laws about it will suffice. I think I stated creativity about stopping it. Not new laws. So, show me where I sp...

Re: This Texting While Driving is really starting to get to me!

Let me re-word that for you and see how you like it: From what I can tell, gun violence is on a tremendous upward increase. Once it reaches it's zenith in death and destruction, maybe, maybe it'll be reined in. The passive acceptance of this insanity reminds of the acceptance of terrorist deaths in ...
