Re: Fort Hood Soldier flees DPS going 200 mph on motorcycle, while illegally carrying gun

that speed is a physically impossibility for the bike in question I disagree. Assuming a drag coefficient somewhere around .35, which isn't unusual for sport bikes, under the right conditions, it should be able to achieve 200+mph within a few seconds without even cranking the motor on. "rlol" http:...

Re: Tax Free 2nd Amendment Items

The poll tax, was a tax you had to pay in order to vote. You don't have to pay a tax in order to exercise your 2nd amendment rights (baring the exception of things like NFA items). The tax you are paying are for the goods and items which just happen to be 2nd Amend. related. So the feds enacting a ...

Re: Obtaining a CHL with a misdemeanor record

The Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits felons from possessing firearms and ammunition. Check out U.S.C. § 922(g) ...however, Texas law will allow possession in the place where he resides. He likely cannot purchase a firearm since that falls under federal jurisdiction. Yeah and Kansas law allows unre...

Re: FLAG burning being challenged by Trump

Flag burning should be treated the same as cross burning and political effigy burning. If one is legal the others should be too. I'm flexible on which way it falls, but let's be consistent across the board. In either case, actual speech should be protected by the First Amendment. No hate speech laws...

Re: AG Opinion: May JCs ban licensed carry if children present?

The whole "university president's can make restrictions" thing just muddies the heck out of everything. :iagree: The law should have cut off taxing authority and state funding for any college that chose to deny 1st or 2nd Amendment rights. Letting them get public money while claiming private proper...

Re: Mall security and right to physically detain you

"Whatever shoplifting/theft problems they have are theirs, not mine. Once money changes hands at the register, their merchandise becomes my personal property and I have no obligation to account for any of it to anyone." Well that's just dandy, you go ahead and refuse to comply with store owners and...

Best Practice is to avoid businesses where they accuse paying customers of being thieves because they're too incompetent to realize when someone is walking directly from the register to the exit after paying.

Re: Mall security and right to physically detain you

At this point, this thread reminds me of those in power who insist: Show me your papers schweinhund. You paid for your purchases. The merchant, whose inefficiency insists you prove your innocence regarding your purchases before you leave is the salient issue. Arrest me. Then wait for the fall out.....
