Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

No waiting periods. Period I've given 'waiting periods' considerable thought over the years and can only come up with a single situation where it 'might' be beneficial and that is in cases where a person is distraught and wants to end their life (suicide) that very day. It is possible that with the...

Am I the only one here thinking: "if you can't control your emotions, you should not carry a deadly weapon"? :banghead:

(flame suit on)
I agree. It's hard to deescalate when your emotions are getting worked up.

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

I might be misunderstanding the meaning and intent of the poll. We already have a MANDATORY universal background check for purchasing firearms. It goes through the FBI. In which case, the poll makes 0 sense to me. And it seems a little biased with not exactly an exhaustive list of options for answe...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

I voted number 3 in the poll. I thought it was the most valid answer even though I would have preferred to say... No, the only way to enforce such a law is through a national registry, which could lead to gun confiscation.

Re: Ted Cruz Accepts Alyssa Milano’s Challenge to Debate Gun Violence

I couldn't find where anybody had posted the "debate", so here it is. Not much of a debate. Alyssa did very little speaking, except to continually ask for a UBC. Ted Made good points, but I doubt it got through to her. It wasn't a surprise that she brought reinforcement to do her speaking for her. h...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Mayor of Forth Worth is in DC right now, lobbying for expanded background checks and red flag laws. She’s trumpeting that ripe old cheese that 72% of Texas gun owners want this. And she’s GOP, all the way. Assuming 72% is correct, what percentage of the people polled think you can walk into Walmart...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

I'm watching an interview with the Fort Worth mayor on Fox4 DFW this morning. She just said a UBC would help identify who's got them (guns).

They're going to have to stop the Roundup trials until they find out if the victims also ate chicken.

Re: Am I missing the boat

Do dealers have a legal responsibility to report a felon trying to buy a gun, or just a moral responsibility? I keep reading that most felons that try, are not prosecuted.
