Re: IN: Woman kills officer's attacker, now getting sued

I know little about civil trials. I served on one civil jury where a woman was suiting a super market (deep pockets) for an injury sustained on their property. She got nothing because there was not a shred of negligence evidence ever presented. So I have to wonder about this case. Exactly how and fr...

Re: Benbrook PD Called for Gun Tshirt in Park

It can be argued, at least partially accurately, that open carry is "in your face" just by it's existence. I'm not arguing against it, or for it for that matter, just pointing out that openly carrying a firearm is an "in your face" action, at least to those who are anti-gun. I d...

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

When I went to the NRA convention in Houston a few years ago, the massive protests promised turned out to be about a dozen or so misfits, who were so inconspicuous you would've figured they were just the usual vagrants if you didn't look closely. I personally couldn't care if they came with a thous...

Re: RVing

2. I am concerned about confrontations with bad people. There are many stories about problems especially in State Parks. I do on-body carry all of the time. That includes rest stops and especially fuel stops. We use diesel and end up at truck stops because we cannot get into most regular gas statio...

Re: They Take the Second Amendment First and the First Amendment Second

I think it's a mixed bag, you've got your true believers that really and honestly see the Constitution as a relic from bygone days and fervently believe that it needs to be done away with. In favor, of course of their Progressive-Transnational government worshipping society. Jeff B. :iagree: At the...

Re: RVing

We've been RVing since 1999 and bought our own in 2004. It had 26K miles on it then and now has 90K miles. We've had it all over the country and in all but a few of the lower 48 States. We've parked in a number of "sketchy" places, though we try to avoid them. Based on our experience and t...

Re: Deerfield Illinois

This is going to last about as long as it takes for someone to file a complaint with the state AG. They have preemption on the law ] I'm not so sure. The AG is Lisa Madigan. She is a Democrat. Her Step-father Michael, also a Democrat, has been Speaker of the Illinois House since 1997. He would have...

Re: Deerfield Illinois

It will be interesting to see if this turns out like the Connecticut bans did with a standoff between the gun owners and the politicians. If you believe the numbers, less than a third of the banned weapons and magazines were handled according to that CT law. No enforcement action that I've been able...

Re: It's a "Violation of Privacy!"

"Many of us think that this is a way that legislators can pacify us instead of enacting actual change." The only thing wrong with the statement is that the legislators aren't trying to pacify you. They are trying to feed their base of voters. "YOU" don't matter to the politician...

Re: Stop The Bleed - free medical training

I attended the class in Ft. Worth yesterday put on by Lone Star Medics. I've taken one of his classes before and yesterday was a good refresher for some of the parts of the previous class. He "suggests" being able to self-apply a tourniquet in 12 seconds and had us practice doing that. It ...

Re: Stop the Bleed

I'm registered for the Ft. Worth course this Saturday. I've had a full day class with this instructor before and view this as a brush-up on what he taught then.

Re: Repeal the 2nd Amendment

The part of the article attacking the NRA was the most troubling. It is though the organization is somehow an unrelated, unconstrained entity. I would like to ask the former justice a few questions. 1. What makes the NRA so powerful? If you believe that power to be financial, how does it relate to a...
