Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I have the date and place penciled in on my calendar. Unless a last minute home crisis occurs, I plan to be there.

Re: Straus has a challenger

Phil King is my representative and I don't think he'd be much of an improvement on Straus! That seems to be the general consensus from a lot of Facebook posters across the State, too. We trade one charlatan for another. Exactly! I seem to remember him passing unlicensed carry out of the committee i...

I was just reading an email from the NRA-ILA about HR 3668. If I'm reading it correctly, it makes significant advances in areas like 1. Suppressors 2. Stopping the US Army from prohibiting concealed carry on Corps of Engineers property 3. A number of other areas, some that seem directly unrelated to...

" Pepper spray will usually get on you and your dog ." - I've had much better results with the stream sprayers, versus the fog sprayers - the downside with the stream sprayers is if there are multiple animals attacking you, ya can only get one at a time - but yeah, if there's any wind, an...

Re: The pavilion at toyota music factory

Looking at the DCAD property map it looks to be owned by the city (another entity has an improvement on the land valued at just over $35,000.00 but the $40+ Million dollar land and improvements belong to the City of Irving. I'm not surprised that it was owned by Irving. Their convention center was ...

Re: Going to Austin. State capital question.

I went to the capitol building with a group on Tax Day this year. I was in and out of the building all day, using the CHL line a number of times. They check your license with the system and then give it back and you pass through. Security was apparently higher than normal because mine was not the on...

Re: ER nurse illegally detained?

] I can't verify it, but from the quotes, and reports, it sounds like the CO was also suspended. This was definitely a case of, "because I said so" , rather than any justifiable action, on the part of the officers involved. I know the police chief, is being as tactful as possible, and not...

Re: Need advice, travelling to State of Washington

If I'm reading Handgunlaw. US correctly, Washington honors non-resident licenses from the States that they honor. Utah is one of those States. While I know that it takes time to get a Utah license, there were LTC instructors in Texas that were certified the teach the 4 hour course that was required ...

Re: ER nurse illegally detained?

...The simple act of drawing blood would have not harmed the patient. If it would have she would have said so. A blood draw is far more invasive than a trunk search, and it is not harmless. she didn't have to explicitly say so either -- this is subsumed in the whole point of informed consent. Gener...

Re: Blindsided

We've had multiple run-ins at gas stations while traveling. They are often in your face as the car door is barely opened. In several cases, it was just a sob story. In one case, I'm certain it was a robbery waiting to happen because there were two of them and they spread out around my vehicle (an RV...

Re: What would you do

Assuming that I were a bystander who does not have the physical skills to deal with the attacker, the options of what to do come with serious risks. Given the viciousness of the the attack, the outcome of drawing and pointing a gun at the attacker is unpredictable. He has already gone into a fit of ...
