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 ...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Republicans in Texas better wake up and figure out how to get Hispanic votes and suburban votes. In my area which historically has been strongly Republican, I now have a Democrat state senator and a Democrat state rep who doesn't even live in the district. And my Congressman, Marchant, just barely w...

Re: ‘But, Kavanaugh!’ NeverTrump’s Awakening

I almost didn't vote for Trump because I didn't believe he really was a conservative, he absolutely slandered all of his Republican opponents with the most evil and nasty language, he is a liar and he is/was a womanizer. I also didn't agree with his views on trade or on Afganistan and Iraq. I did vo...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Something I don't understand is when a politician actually does in office what he promised to do in his campaign and then people get upset with him for doing what he said he would do. This is happening to Cruz and Trump. While I don't think either are terribly likable people, they both have kept the...

Re: New online CHL application & procedures

My son is going to a private Christian college in Arkansas so there is no issue of instate versus out of state tuition. It just costs every student a ridiculous amount of money!

It is a good issue to remember though. Thanks.

Re: Just My Thoughts

I don't think this is a 1st Amendment issue. It is however fraud and breach of contract issue. If I were to sue them that is the approach I would take.
