Re: New Forum Features

I was editing a post when you turned on the optional style, and not expecting it, when I hit 'submit' I thought I blew up the internet or something.

But I think I like the new style, probably won't change it back.

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

...District and County Clerks' offices opposed open access in the last legislative session because of their anticipated loss of $$$ for charging the public for hard copies of those records.

Re: PA: Grandma shoots home invader.

Grams is also the mother of a police officer. The article linked below makes it clear that when she was "chasing" the intruder and shooting at him, he was still inside her house. He broke in while she was warning him not to, came upstairs to her bedroom door, and then the shooting began. I don't thi...

Miami tv station reports that Deputy Scot Peterson was the school resource officer who investigated an attack by two 17 year old male students against a 14 year old male student that lawyers say could have been filed as a criminal sexual assault.

Re: Colorado taking first steps towards complete confiscation

Seems to me that if a person” qualifies” to have his firearms taken away because he is mentally unstable and/or danger to others, then it Should be the person that is confiscated, not the firearms.

This is Texas, darnit. Why couldn't this have been "High school student able to get shotgun into school under a trench coat. When he presented the gun and prepared to fire, he was neutralized by a teacher who was trained and licensed. No one at the school injured but the attempted shooter." Because...

But yeah. :mad5
