If I could choose one or the other, I would go with DST.
Same here. It's nice having several hours of daylight after work or supper.

Except he never spent 7 years in combat, never mind "splattering people to pieces" he deployed ONCE Nov. 16, 2010 to June 14, 2011. in a typical "short" tour Marine Corps does.
Sorry, my bad. I read that somewhere - a "machine gunner with 7 tours in Afghanistan." Thanks.

What's the legislative focus this time?

Any news yet on what the pro-2A focus will be for the next legislative session? Two I remember from last time are reducing the number of places where CC was prohibited, reducing LTC fees.

Exactly! People who have yet to finish high school, never had a job or any other familial responsibilities and otherwise, don't know Snit from Shinola are allowed to vote.
Absolutely. I think lowering the voting age to 18 was a huge mistake.

Re: California bar shooting leaves 12 dead

On the other hand, 7 years of combat duty splattering people to pieces (he was a Marine machine gunner) can do strange things to you.....

Re: Truck broken in to, pistol stolen...I’m mad at myself

Bad news. I've often heard that gun-seeking thieves look for trucks with window/bumper stickers like NRA, Cabelas, etc. because these are likely to have guns in them, especially at places like airports where people usually leave them in their vehicles.

Re: Its Time to Texit.

I would like to question, however, where on earth the federal government gets permission to be involved in an intra-state data/phone provider or has permission to have absolutely anything to do with education (aside from enforcing the constitution upon the states through the 14th amendment, that bi...

Re: Its Time to Texit.

It's a great idea, but so is growing wings and flying. Not going to happen. The loss of federal dollars would be devastating. They're more pervasive than you think. For example, virtually all of the special education funds in the public schools, including special ed teachers' salaries, are federal. ...

Re: Thief gets shot in the back

I've never been completely comfortable with the language in this section. From what it says, you are justified in using deadly force to stop theft in the nighttime if: the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or (B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect...

Re: Texan Jailed After Defensive Gun Use

Yes, there are some communities and cities that are anti-gun, where a biased DA will automatically charge you and lock you up, even if it's glass-clear self defense. This incident is one of the best commercials I've ever seen for having a legal service membership. Note the size of the bail ($500K), ...
