Re: Gunmaker Remington can be sued over marketing of rifle used in Sandy Hook shooting, court rules

I think the more accurate relation would be, could a family sue Annheiser Busch, Jim Beam, or Jose Quervo because a family member was killed in a drunk driving crash. How about Ford, GM or BMW because they all create cars that travel fast enough to kill a person (speed is at least advertised). I th...

Re: SB 2146: School Carry

SB 2146 was filed on March 8 by Bob Hall. If I am reading the bill correctly, it would allow LTC holders to carry on all school campuses. Just a minor technical correction, but not ALL school campuses. Public schools and charter schools only. Private schools could do what they wanted. This matches ...

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

(Sadly) my money is on Kamila, Beto and Bernie winding up as the three main players at the end, with Beto edging out the other two a few months into the primaries. I disagree on Kamila Harris making it that far. I also think Bernie will end up being the nominee. Bernie supporters will not change fr...

Re: A somewhat unique situation.

I am in the Austin area, so the bus line is Cap Metro. I was being intentionally vague, but I guess that's not much help. I also work for the state, which brings up something that kind of torques me off. We won the lawsuit where you can now carry in the capital building (not where I work), but yet ...

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

I have lost track of how many accidents I worked. I am a firm believer that, overall, seat belts save lives. Yes, there is a chance that it could kill you, but that is so rare that I wear a seat belt in a car every time and make sure everyone in my car does too.

Re: Rep. Michael Burgess may be dangerous

I am a firm believer that whatever age we choose, we should only have one age for adulthood. Whether the question is attending school, signing contracts, buying guns, consenting to sex, voting, serving in the military, going to jail instead of juvie, or anything else, you should either be an adult o...

Re: Retired PD vs CHL

As a retired officer with both, I recommend he get an LTC also. Point out to him that the laws forbidding LTC carry specifically say when carrying under the authority of the LTC. He is carrying under the authority of the retired ID so they bans do not apply. He does have to be careful to remember th...

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

I don't have an issue with someone being investigated or charged refusing to make a statement or testify. I do have an issue with the other officers in the department stonewalling the DA's office and refusing to cooperate or speak to them. I agree with this also. The other officers not involved sho...

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

I beg to differ. Your lack of making a statement or cooperating in an investigation has always been legal to use in court, as far as I know. The Fifth Amendment forbids the government from compelling you to testify against yourself but I find nothing in the Constitution about them not introducing t...

Re: HB 1713 - Surrendering Firearms if convicted of family violence or subject to a protective order

I have the same problem with this bill that I have with the existing law in Penal Code Section 46.04. That section makes it illegal for a person to possess a firearm while the subject of a protective order, even if the order was issued ex parte. Ex parte means that the hearing was one-sided and only...

Re: HB 2137 - Waived LTC Fees for Honorably Retired Law Enforcement Officers

I was under the impression retired LEOs carried under a federal permit. They don't need a state LTC. Some of us have them anyway. It gets us out of the phone call background check. It also covers the one very weird circumstance where a place has a regular no guns sign but no 30.06 or 30.07. The exe...
