Re: Mike Pence @ NRA Annual Meeting

I'm pretty sure the only area that will be off-limits will be where @VP is speaking. The rest of the venue will be business as usual. The VP will be speaking in an arena that requires tickets for entry. Will the entire arena be off limits? And if yes, is there a place to check my gun or do I need t...

Re: Waiting Time For Residency Requirement

There is no waiting requirement. If you move to Texas with the intent of establishing residency, no waiting. Someone will be along shortly to cite the code for you.... ETA: Here it is.. Sec. 411.173. NONRESIDENT LICENSE. (a) The department by rule shall establish a procedure for a person who meets t...

Re: NYC: Anti Semitic attacks increase. Would this happen if NY was shall issue

IMO, the Jewish affinity for the Democrat party is a reaction (justified or not) to the perception that the Republican party wants to advocate and is willing to to legislate for Christianity in public institutions. JMHO. YMMV.

Re: NYC: Anti Semitic attacks increase. Would this happen if NY was shall issue

I think it is a cultural thing. Tangent... I was ASTOUNDED by the support Obama received from the Jewish community in 2012, long after his anti-Israel bona-fides had been firmly established. My mother had to leave the room whenever politics came up. Not one of her social groups (predominantly Jewis...

Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

This will be my first year going, so I've been watching the news about this. Vice President will be speaking, so no guns allowed in the Arena. I'm assuming that's what they mean. I hope this doesn't mean no carry ANYWHERE. Was going to purchase a ticket, but since carry will be prohibited, guess I'...

Re: NYC: Anti Semitic attacks increase. Would this happen if NY was shall issue

The Orthodox community of Crown Heights is not known for being open minded or easy to get along with. I'm not saying this isn't anti-semitism, I'm just suggesting that the events likely have more shades than just black and white. Really? Blame the victim? Do you remember Meir Kahane? An Orthodox Je...

Social Justice points. Virtue signaling as marketing strategy.
Fear of having their products associated with NRA.

Re: Mike Pence @ NRA Annual Meeting

So... I have a ticket to this event... Will I have a problem carrying? What's the chance that when I ask the SS for a place to check my gun, they don't laugh at me? :lol: So now I have to choose between throwing out my ticket or going to Dallas unarmed? :grumble ETA: https://www.nraam.org/attend/fir...

Re: Austin based Yeti quits doing business with NRA

Here is the letter from the NRA-ILA with the statement from Marion Hammer. It states YETI was not telling them why they were not selling to them, so he must have had correspondence with them. Now YETI is backing up and trying to weasel out of their initial boycott because of the backlash from NRA m...

Hey, I'm not complaining that it didn't come personalized with gold embroidery or with anything fancy shmancy. They were making such a big deal about the meeting that I was expecting something more than, "Let's hope they realize this is the badge." :lol: Clearly you are not alone in think...
