Re: CO: Colorado used to be a nice place

Why wasn't he in jail from his February arrest? :mad5 That is a deeper philosophical question than just CO. A flippant response would be that we often have a "catch and release" response to violent criminals while other offenses seem to elicit a more stern one. Many sources already say th...

Re: Time to move

While the sheriff in Harris County was terminating the 287g program, the sheriff in Montgomery County is preparing to start the program and has invited us former officers to come work for him. I submitted my application yesterday and now I'm juggling the idea of moving up that way or just staying i...

Re: Interpreting TWU Campus Carry

I attended the Skywarn training today. It was held in the TWU MCL building auditorium. Immediately across from auditorium doors was one of the rooms that was apparently determined by the TWU policy to be off limits and there was a very large scale 3006 sign on the door to that room. Because of its s...

Interpreting TWU Campus Carry

I'm planning to attend a Skywarn training class a TWU this coming Saturday. The course is listed to take place in the Multi-Purpose Classroom Laboratory with no more details. I assume that there will be signs directing me to the actual room. I found the TWU Campus Carry policy here. http://www.twu.e...

Re: Cities improperly posting 30.06 signs?

I had the opportunity to attend a meeting last night where the speaker was Attorney General Paxton. We could write down questions for him. Here was mine. What does the 2017 Legislature need to do to deal with the government entities that continue to prohibit licensed carry even after the "fines...

Re: CHL convicted of 21 felonies by drawing his gun when he felt threatened by BLM

I watched the interview with the woman (a school teacher) at the center of this video tape. She is an activist who claims that she must "shut down Facists". I see it as a parallel to the BLM activites. She was at the UC Berkely protest and proudly proclaimed her success there. https://www....

Re: Sad but probably true, Politcal Violence

I have engaged in several "discussion" with leftists on FB and other social media. I try very had not to call names. But inevitably within two posts, they start calling me names. They also invariably accuse me of not reading widely. Then I find out they read nothing but the mainstream med...

Re: Licensed but don't carry? Why?

Isn't part of this like exercise equipment? Many people buy it, know it is good for them and maybe even have a doctor yelling at them (like mine at me) that they need to exercise more. They know they should and took the first steps toward doing it but..... I like the story of the doctor who convince...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Staying with the DeVos theme, there may be more to her opposition than just education policy. They say that satire can sometimes go where normal conversation does not. We have to remember that there are a lot of frustrated anti-gun forces out there who are really feeling more stifled than others. ht...

Re: Licensed but don't carry? Why?

Chasfm11, you posted some of the typical excuses/reasons many people don't carry as often as they might. One of them in particular caught my attention. Manipulating a loaded pistol multiple times a day is too nerve wracking for some others that I've talked to. This was something that I had to overc...

Re: Licensed but don't carry? Why?

I was one who got my then CHL with no plan to carry daily. We have an RV and had always had a shotgun on board. However, we ran into several situations where that might not have been enough. I wanted a pistol and felt that I had to have the CHL for it. As others have said, the process (and expense) ...

Re: Calexit

In addition to electricity sourcing, they have another problem that they haven't thought through. While I realize that the US had military bases in other countries, I'm guessing that many of these wouldn't survive Calexit.
