Re: Officials Attempt to Circumvent Indiana Carry Law

I am curious to see where his inquiries lead him. I'll predict that the answer is: nowhere. The City of Lewisville holds Western Days downtown and fences off several city blocks. A couple of years ago, they added a private security firm and started wanding everyone who entered. I refused to be wand...

Re: Arrl field day for those interested in ham radio

I've passed the tech exam. There is a club near me that is giving exams outside on field day. I've been studying for my general and I think I'm ready. I took my Tech test (and passed ) a couple of years ago. I took the General test on the same day but missed passing it by 2 questions. I hadn't real...

Re: Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX 36) thinks he's better than you

I'm in the process of drafting letters to my Congressman and Senators saying "don't even think about" passing legislation for yourselves without making improvements in concealed carry for citizens. Federal property rules can be just as easily changed for licensed carriers as they can for e...

Re: NJ Democratic Strategist Launches Campaign to #HuntRepublicans

I watched the recording of him being interviewed by Tucker Carlson. Devine claims that his statement isn't hunting in the physical sense but finding and un-electing Republicans. He likened it to the map put out by Sarah Palin supporters with the bulls eyes on them about Democrats. He went on, howeve...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

The breakfast was a huge success! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the folks whose posts I've been reading for years, and the great conversation that consisted of real, honest discussion without worrying about offending or triggering a snowflake. This was a definite "gotta do it again". :iagr...

Re: Changed the mind of an anti

Great job. I'm glad you were able have success with her. I think the key was that you found someone who had more curiosity and willingness to try than ideology. Those that I've spoken with who were true antis were so steeped in ideology and drinking the Liberal Koolaide that they were unwilling to d...

Re: Kansas Professor resigning - Campus Carry

I am all for campus carry, but also think that some training is a good thing. It should be taught in school. If it were taught in school it would reduce the amount of child firearm accidents. Having been in a classroom with recent high school graduates over the last 2.5 years, I find putting firear...

Re: Kansas Professor resigning - Campus Carry

Ms. Ballard-Reisch told The Eagle that she and her adult son were held at gunpoint during a 2014 home invasion. Yet, she still prefers law abiding citizens to be unarmed in the face of criminals. :banghead: Just to clarify the post topic - she's retiring, not resigning. Big difference. A tenured pr...

Kansas Professor resigning - Campus Carry

Kansas is really the prefect storm for those who oppose gun rights. The law prohibiting campus carry will expire and Kansas is now a Constitutional Carry state. So students, with no license or training, will now be able to carry concealed in college and university class rooms. http://www.washingtont...

Re: Denton PD contact after wreck

:iagree: Yep, I've had a couple of similar incidents. Someone stopped suddenly in front of us. I stopped, the guy behind me hit my rear. We pulled over and exchanged insurance info. I took photos. His insurance company said he wasn't on the policy, and that the policy forbade any drivers under age 2...

Re: United Blood Services 30.06 sign need your opinion

Not sure if their mobile truck is posted or not, I will have to find the location of one this weekend and see if it has a sign. Can a mobile vehicle be posted? It is not premises, and it is not a building or portion of a building, and it is not real property... i asked that exact question of Carter...
