Re: Thinking About Defense of Others

In my opinion, no jury in Texas is going to convict you for walking past a 30.06 sign to save someone's life who is under active attack. You should be covered under a defense of necessity. Keep in mind that I'm not a lawyer, but I just don't see it happening. This attorney agrees with both of your ...

Boo! And I thought I was doing good by moving out of Austin to the county.

Re: All Rights are not Created Equal

Moot point until SCOTUS recognizes the right to carry (aka "bear") firearms outside the home. Once that happens, I'm sure we can make the case and use this one as an example.

Re: What Would You Do?

Ensure we are both armed. Call 911. Wait for PD response without tipping the criminals, hoping the PD surprises them. Flip on lights if they approach the house, hoping they leave. If they try a forced entry, I would fire through the door/window from the side. You know they are armed. Active, armed ...

Re: Dallas homeowner in shootout with attempted armed robbers

Every day I think more about expending funds on high resolution security cameras for my home. Excellent idea. I have 2x 1080p Ethernet-over-power ( Pro Cameras and Pro Installed some 5-yrs ago or so) and believing due to the distance and wide angle. The image quality is like looking a monitor from ...

Re: Obama commutes sentence of Chelsea Manning

Glad that Chelsea's sentence is being commuted. I don't think she's gotten fair treatment in the system.

Now only if we could get Snowden pardoned and drop charges on Assange.

Said a guy threatened to sue and the legislature changed the law allowing carry except in courtrooms. Is this true? I've lived away from Texas for a while. Working here...

I'm betting the shot didn't connect.

Bet the gun owner wishes he had a 9mm for faster, more accurate follow-up shots. :mrgreen:
