I guess I should have asked it this way- Did the "ban" call for them to be turned in or destroyed?
Yes, they became illegal to own, so the ruling said it must be destroyed or turned in to the police for destruction.

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsberg - dies 9.18.2020

I have a problem with the hypocrisy that would be shown if they do make a nomination now. The Republicans held up a nomination for quite a long time because an election was close and they wanted to let the new president have a say (well, that was their stated reason). If they do a nomination this cl...

Re: Auction in Houston

7. Ruger 10-22 22LR Rifle, no cartridge chamber Anyone have any idea how they got this rifle without a chamber? I’m betting their nomenclature, is somewhat misguided regarding firearms. My guess is that there is no magazine. JMHO That was my guess also, but I just could not resist asking.

Re: Drones

Hmm, can't find it at the moment but I know I've read that any use that appears commercial, even if not compensated for it, is forbidden for a recreational user. Example given was taking a video for your own business's web site. As I understand it, it is not activity that appears commercial, but ac...

But back to dogs specifically, does he realize that people originating in one of the 2 "allowable" regions had white skin?
Yeah, I was wondering if he had ever heard of the term Caucasian and knew where it came from.

Have the DA’s decided law and order is something they like now?
Yep, they decided that right after the Biden campaign admitted the polls showed the riots were helping Trump. It just took a few days for the word to trickle down all the way.

Re: AG Opinion Request RQ-0338-KP County Investigator

This lends a new and interesting slant to who is a peace officer. The AG has said, and I understand and agree with his logic, that your employment/position determines if you are a peace officer, not TCOLE or its licensing. That completely changes my understanding of who is a peace officer in Texas.

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

Needs to be presented to grand jury. Didn’t know judges did this. This is one of your rights in Texas. If you are arrested you must be taken before a magistrate immediately (with loose definition of immediately. The magistrate reviews the case for probable cause, reads you your rights, and usually ...

Re: Duty to Provide LTC on Voluntary Identification to LEO?

The LEO did demand ID, while you were not required to show ID under normal conditions this demand had no basis in law for a normal situation, which this was. I agree with this. I do not think of your identifying yourself as voluntary when the officer asks for your ID. The law states you should show...

what gets me, is. her district has a republican running against her. why is he or she not flame spraying here everyday with the amazon stuff, cow farts, no airplanes etc
Because you can't win by insulting the voters and they mostly believe her or they wouldn't have voted for her to begin with.

Re: MO: St. Louis Lawyers Defend Mansion From BLM Protesters In Viral Video

But I kind of like this article, not anything it says but what it is reporting. Doesn't charging nine people...

I only watched a 16 minute video of the incident that was released by HPD and was narrated by Acevedo and spliced fro...
