Re: Wash DC: MANGA hat wearing teens get ugly with drum beating indigenous people

Catholic diocese apologizes for students behavior, will investigate may be expelled. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/catholic-school-investigate-taunting-native-americans-n960626 I have to admit that I particularly liked this quote from the article: Rep.

Re: NJ: Resident kills home invader with invader's own gun

Well, the anti-gunners always did say you shouldn't carry a gun because someone will taek it away from you and use it against you. I guess they had to be right at least once.

Re: IN: Lafayette PD officer accidently shoots another officer

They all need better training. The one making the video was also searching with his finger on the trigger. This video shows one of the reasons I dislike lights on pistols. He was using the pistol light as his flashlight while searching. I don't have a problem with having the pistol out while searchi...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

What about LEO and Special Investigators (Feds) who are not currently subject to those sections... Yes, there is no exception for anyone in the proposed 30.06 and 30.07. This will get all of the police organizations to oppose it very quickly. Whether we like that part or not, we need their cooperat...

Re: Government shutdown

Anygunanywhere, the House approved a bill, it went to the Senate, who approved it and sent it to the President, who refused to sign it. Whose fault is this? When did this happen? Last I heard the house passed a bill that the senate declined to pass. Nothing made it to the president. But I have to p...

Re: Article on Slippery Definitions of "Assault Weapon"

Never forget every 12ga shotgun can become a destructive device without any new laws, and it's easier than bump stocks becoming machine guns. I’m not disputing this, but I don’t understand how. Please explain? Federal code section 18 USC 921 (4)(B) defines destructive device as: (B) any type of wea...

Re: Incredible account of Parkland shooting

Amazing. I can't think of any other word I can say in public. A catastrophic failure of epic proportions. I think shocking might be a better word. I think it is an excellent reconstruction, if it is as accurate as I think it is. I was shocked to see that there were more cowards on the sheriff's dep...

Re: Rocks not Glocks!

I see very little wrong with this, except possibly the size of the rocks. I am old and cannot throw very well anymore, so I use a tool to assist me in throwing rocks. And the tool helps me throw my rocks more accurately. It also helps me carry more than one rock at a time, but it does force me to us...

Re: Big sow in Manor

A golf course is a waste of a perfectly good rifle range area. Making it a rifle range also helps stop the pigs from destroying the land - a win-win.

Re: LEO Annual Qual

The current TCOLE form for weapons qualifications for out of state officers still allows for a CHL instructor to sign it. I would guess that means an LTC instructor can do so.

Re: Shooting at Car Thieves

I don't work for HPD and never have, but here is a link to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to Congress from 1991. It says overall, the rate is about 80%, with cars reaching higher (around 88%), light trucks a little lower, and motorcycles worst of all (around...

Re: Shooting at Car Thieves

How many understand the difference between theft at night (most don't know what legal night is) and "recoverable" property? Even LTC holders don't fully understand these laws. I think you are right. I sincerely doubt most people know what is meant by night, legally. And those who do, probably don't...

Re: Shooting at Car Thieves

Also, I rememeber that when I originally took my CHL class, the instructor mentioned some law that allows one to use deadly force to stop a thief from stealing property but only unrecoverable/untraceable property. If the stolen item could be traced back to you if found by the police, you may not us...

Re: The Reason For The Season

I have a friend who always said that the reason for the season was the tax collector. Of course, she had been the elected tax assessor collector for her county which gave her a slightly different take on why Joseph and Mary were traveling. But I wish all of you who celebrate it, a very merry Christm...
