Re: Bum banging on my door.

A good friend of our family, along with his wife and younger brother, was held at gunpoint in North Richland Hills a few years back. The perpetrator had gotten into a couple of confrontations with police, swiped a car, and ended up finally fleeing his last police encounter on foot. He appeared at ou...

Re: Smart Gun Hacked, Fires using Magnets

A little time with a file (or a blob of JB Weld to hold that firing pin block back) would be a more permanent solution, so this really won't work to keep a stolen gun from doing bad things in criminal hands. Better, maybe, to use accelerometers like in smart phones. If the gun is tilted more than 15...

Re: What a drag - Garland civic center posted

This was one time I was happy to see 30.06/07 on school property. They seem in your face redundant and condescending on a schoolhouse, but I saw what looked sort of like an events center or conference facility. It didn't dawn on me it was school property until I asked. If it weren't illegal I would ...

Re: What a drag - Garland civic center posted

Mystery solved. It's not city property, it's school district property and a fine monument to property tax it is!

A nice Garland officer explained that to me. Great to be able to have that kind of reasonable, polite dialog.

What a drag - Garland civic center posted

Here I am for a future daughter-in-law's college graduation and they made me leave all my masculine products in our car, 30.06/07 proudly posted on the public property. Suborned by my desire to not cause a scene, I meekly defanged myself.

I think I'll grab pictures of the signs and write a letter.

Re: Texas Ranger pulls gun on driver who flipped him off

Cordell Walker would have handled that differently. The driver would have learned to keep his finger in his pocket and the wayward Ranger would have ended up helping a bunch of kids at risk. The lady DA would have been victim of overacting that would make Shatner blush, but you just can't help some ...

Re: Houston Chronicle - Packing a gun at your business sends the wrong message

Precision, please! The shopkeeper wasn't packing a gun, he had it laying on his desk. It should have been on his person and I'd also question his judgement in other ways, too. A revolver? In these modern times? 1911, Hi-Power, Sig, H&K, Kahr, heck, even a Glock - but a revolver? Is he huntin' or...

Re: What exactly did Trump Jr. do wrong?

There is not one shred of evidence that Russia, or for that matter, China, North Korea, or any other foreign government, "hacked" anything, or managed to influence votes, during the election. All we know is that they "attempted" to do those things. The only ones claiming Russian...

Re: What exactly did Trump Jr. do wrong?

We'll have a better America under Trump and that's good enough for me, at least for the most part. All of our leaders are flawed in various ways. I'll take a crook who's leveraging America First over Hillary any day of the week. As far as election hacking, ever heard the phrase "garbage in, gar...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

A no-show for me, too. I have a customer with a need for help at 9:00. It's 100 miles. Restricting my travel to normal three-dimensional planes of reference - I don't want to miss all the scenery! - I can't get there and back in time.
