Re: error on application

Yes, it was a conviction. 50 yrs ago. Non-violent. You would think a person could get a break for not having another arrest or conviction since then & lived a good life. But the laws the law. Actually, there may be some good news for you in the near future. There is a court case working its way thr...

Re: LEO lip sync videos are a thing now...very entertaining.

O.K., I'm just an old grump so I don't care to see the police trying to be entertaining especially given my loathing for entertainers expressing their generally commie views... I want my LEO to just do their jobs with dignity is plenty good enough for me. Now, get off my lawn! This is the very inte...

Re: Man attacks teens in San antonio over MAGA hat

Arrested. http://apps.bexar.org/cmagsearchlist/ListDetails.aspx?detail=1937259 No assault charge? :banghead: They probably will ignore the assault charge for two reasons. The first, and most likely, is that it is very common to drop class C cases when you have a felony. If you charge them separatel...

Re: Don't mess with Moms

Here's one for the MPA!!! But she violated two rules, one which almost bit her on the backside and one which helped her put a stop to the crime: 1. Don't leave the keys in the car, even if you're only a few feet away pumping gas. 2. Don't leave your firearm unsecured in the glove box, but in this c...

Re: Man attacks teens in San antonio over MAGA hat

The news article I read says that a police report has been filed. It implied that it wasn't filed until after he was identified, which i can see as most teenagers probably would not have thought of it at first. But it won't be a fine, if true. I see it as one of the easiest felony arrests some SAPD ...

If you grow your own marijuana and build your own gun there's no interstate commerce. :evil2:

Re: Camping & Glamping

I have not used a pop-up since I was a kid. Back then, we camped all over the east coast in one (Philly to Miami and then up through Montreal). That was six kids plus my parents. No A/C or shower, had to use campgrounds for them. Since then my camping has all been Boy Scout type tents and such. Rece...

Re: Happy Birthdays Joe817 and SRothstein

Thanks all. I went to work this morning and told my boss that I had this worthless piece of paper I had been carrying from almost 50 years and that now it might actually prove to be worth something. Then I showed him my social security card. I had to point out that since I am now eligible for social...

Discount on Glock pistols

I was shopping (drooling over some pistols) at GT Distributors the other day. While there, I noticed a sign that may help some of us if you are looking for a new pistols and like (or at least don't mind) Glocks. According to GT, Glock is now selling any one pistol to any veteran with an honorable di...

Re: Mere possession of firearm not probable cause for arrest--even in Illinois

Also, the order is written as non-precedential, so no one can use the logic or cite the case. And, of course, it is good news for our side for future court cases. These two things seem to contradict each other. Can you explain how a courts decision can be non-precedential? That doesn't make any sen...

Re: Mere possession of firearm not probable cause for arrest--even in Illinois

Two minor corrections. Mr. Penister did not have a license and his conviction was upheld, just not his sentencing. Also, the order is written as non-precedential, so no one can use the logic or cite the case. There is a link to the actual order in the Reason article and reading it makes it clear Rea...

Re: Illegal Kitty Keychain

If you Google them they are sold everywhere as personal defense keychains and in my opinion, for what it's worth, they are an illegal (brass knuckles) weapon in Texas. I would not want to try to sway a jury that they were not a weapon after a Google search. To clarify my earlier statement, I agree ...

Long story short, Manafort was out of jail awaiting trial under a set of terms established by the court. Manafort violated those terms and after a hearing and due process , was placed in jail pending trial. Treated as any other citizen under indictment for a crime. I have not studied this case very...
