Straus calls for special session

Joe Straus did an article in the Houston Chronicle calling for a special session on guns. Just a heads-up.

Re: The face tattoo test works flawlessly

Reminds me of a young lady who worked in a Pizza Hut in Austin several years back. I ran into her often when I went there on my lunch break. Her head was shaved absolutely slick as a cue ball. On top of her head was a very detailed, color tattoo of a commode, looking down into the bowl. The caption ...

Re: Would you support this gun private purchase restriction

Of course, people who use guns in crimes will ignore all this foofooraw anyway. As far as selling one, it would be unenforceable. Instead of buying that gun for $400, you could just buy that old lawn mower for $400 and I'd give you the gun.

Re: NASCAR turns left into Dicks

I'm surprised it took this long considering all a NASCAR race is normally just a bunch of left turns. Yeah, watching Indy and NASCAR on TV is about as exciting as watching paint dry. The only thing that raises eyebrows is the occasional crash, and what the heck, now you can watch 30-minute crash co...

Re: Did anti texting and driving laws reduce accidents?

I think texting and driving should be elevated to a more serious crime, something up along the level of DUI. I drive a freeway (I-10) every day and you wouldn't believe what I see out there.

Re: Lawsuit argues AR-15 illegal

Well......"can be readily RESTORED........" Per the definition of "restore", none of my AR15s can be restored to shoot more than one round per pull of trigger because they never originally could! Nothing to "restore" on my rifles. I'm not so sure. A good lawyer could have a field day with this - re...

Re: Ross Perot death

Perot was yet another example of media assassination. I remember during his campaign, he addressed a group of black voters, "you people have not gotten a fair shake." Whoops.... because he referred to them as "you people," the media insinuated he was addressing them as some separate, "non-white" gro...

Re: Ask Amy...

Well, to us, it sounds extreme, but these people ARE out there. I remember selling our house a couple of years back. A realtor was showing it to a couple in their 40s. Another woman, a friend of the wife's, was with them. I was showing them a room when suddenly I heard this loud squealing: "oooowwoo...

Re: Another Meme Thread

I remember well. Back in the 50s. We drove the neighbors to distraction tearing all over the neighborhood playing "army." It was a big deal to go down to the dimestore and stock up on ammo, er, caps.

What kind of president (or ex-president) goes to a shirthole country like Brazil and makes public speeches running down his own country? Just disgusting.

Re: 2019 Firearms Related Bills That Made it to Governor Abbott

Hmmm.... As I understand it, it doesn't matter whether there's a sign or not; if you receive verbal or written notice, you have to leave, period. Still, can an LEO walk up and ask if you're carrying a weapon, based solely on noticing a slight bulge under your shirt? Seems like that would be illegal ...

Terrorist movie

Sometimes we visualize certain situations and try to devise ways we would deal with them in real life, as a concealed carrier. One of those imaginary scenarios is a sudden terrorist attack. I just recently watched a movie (we live 2 blocks from a theater) that made it strikingly real. The terrorist ...
