Re: White House threatens to veto background check bills

The Republicans with 24 Dems got it in the final bill. Small victory in a large loss.

Re: Do you ever open carry?

I conceal 90% of the time. But when it gets warmer, I will usually open carry after church simply by taking my suit coat off.

Re: FBI Statistics on Armed Citizens at Active Shooter Events

First, the FBI didn't say any of this; statistics were gathered by and reported by the FBI and then analyzed by Concealed Carry. This is Concealed Carry's analysis of the FBI stats. Second, this is a great analysis. Really shows that CHLs/CCW/LTCs are very successful when at the site of an active sh...

Re: Lewisville: Convenience Store Clerk Shot to Death During Armed Robbery

I lived across the street from there 30 years ago for six months. Not a horrible area but right off 35.

Re: TX: SA off duty police officer suspended for 15 days after being shot 6 Times in the torso

Baby Face Nelson killed two FBI agents after being hit by at least one, possibly two, buckshot loads, in the legs and 3-6 45s from a Tommy Gun. Given that this officer was drinking he very well could have down what he did with 6 9 mm hits to his torso. Most people would have gone down but he had fig...

Re: Many Foreign Tourists -- and Most Foreign Students -- Are Barred from Going to Shooting Ranges

If you read further in the article, legality depends on the country and the type of visa they have. Very confusing.

Re: *MAYBE* WTB K98 Mauser (if the price is right)

You might try Military Gun Supply in the mid cities area/east Fort Worth. They use to carry reasonably priced Mausers, but I haven't been in there in a few years so who knows.

Re: OK: Clerk shoots customer who pulls gun over photographs

The clerk did well to only get fired. Good shoot until he hit bystanders, then not so good.

Re: Negligent entrustment of a firearm: TX courts haven't ruled.

There are 3 reported cases in the last 40 years according to the article. This doesn't seem to be a burning legal question in Texas. Of course it would only take one case to make it a real issue.

Re: Dallas Under-Funding Police to the Point Where Life-Threatening Calls Go Unanswered

A friend of mine is a Dallas City police officer. According to him, the staffing levels are so low that detectives only have 30 minutes to handle any case. They can't hardly start in that time. He is very frustrated.

Re: FTF selling question

I have generally done transactions in a public parking lot usually a big box store or a restaurant. Some police departments offer space to do transactions. I believe Carrollton PD does this for example.

Re: CHL Badge holder charged in murder at church

Lousy situation. The deceased started this by disrupting a church service. The shooter should have handled this a lot differently. He should have approached the deceased and asked him to calm down or leave. If that doesn't work, you call 911 and get 3 or 4 brothers, ushers, Deacons elders, whatever ...
