Re: Any Recourse Against Sneaky Tax Raise?

<SNIP> I wish the property tax was replaced with a consumption tax. You mean, like a sales tax? Yes. If I have to pay a tax it shouldn’t be because I own something, or because I make so much money, but because of how frivolous I get. Buy a Lamborghini, pay tax on that. Personally, I’ll drive my Che...

Re: How's this idea for improving Texas firearms laws?

I sincerely doubt many police stations have this lock box. And what if the entire station is posted 30.06 (for example College/Community College police statio...

Re: Campus carry and effective concealment methods for an ltc college student

I carry a shield 9 every day in an AlienGear Cloak Tuck 3.0. I just ordered a Black Arch Protos-M, so I'll see how that works out.
