Re: ATF Admits It Lacked Authority to Issue Legislative Rule

Interesting stuff. So I wonder where this is all headed legally. Will bump stocks be legalized again? I never really wanted one before. I think I am gonna load up on them this time. I doubt it, mostly. I have a lot of faith in appellate courts though, so maybe. I tried to follow through and read mo...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

Answers as of right now: 22.9% 1. Yes. They would help to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. 16.7% 2. Yes. It’s an imperfect measure, but something must be done to curb gun deaths. 29.2% 3. No. The checks would be both costly and ineffective in curbing illegal access to gu...

Re: Course of Fire

I can't tell you the exact course of fire, but I can give you some basic rules for it. TCOLE requirements are at https://texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/r ... h=218&rl=9.

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

OC serves what purpose? It serves the purpose of allowing me to leave my vest off for a few minutes while making a quick trip. I always carry OWB on my right hip due to too many years of experience reaching there for my firearm. For work and school, where I am not allowed to OC, I wear a vest to co...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission rules require establishments selling alcohol for "off premises" consumption display a sign stating that unlicensed carrying of a weapon is a felony. Since Texas does not license the carrying of long guns, rifles are prohibited. Obviously, the carrying of rifles i...

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I beg to differ. I do not think she is the dumbest person to hold office. With people thinking we have been to Mars and that too many people could tip an island over, I don't think she is the stupidest. I will stipulate she is definitely in the running though. And as I typed this, I noticed that all...

Re: TX:Judge orders man to pay 96k in divorce settlement even though she was married to two other men

Here is another story. Apparently this woman has a criminal history. She probably had a better attorney than Athans. However, according to Athans, his son began to research Parchem and learned she had a criminal history. “Some things just didn’t add up,” Athans said. “He went and did a background c...

Re: Not The Whole Book-But Should Be Enough

Question though: I cannot find a Penal Code citation for "aggravated" theft. There's levels of misdemeanor and felony theft based on the value of what was stolen, but I don't find the word "aggravated' in PC Chapter 31 Theft. What was stolen was a purse containing $300.00 dollars and an ID. What ma...

Re: LTC Class and Test in Spanish

I think it is an interesting marketing question. I know of no law or official policy stopping or encouraging any licensed LTC instructor from conducting the class in Spanish. I doubt that there are any statistics available on how many instructors speak any languages other than English. If any instru...

Re: Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

I have no problem with that idea in principle, so long as allowances are made for legitimate reasons. Otherwise, it’s unjust. I never served in the military, but I’m now in my late 60s. So if we converted over to a literal interpretation of this system, I’d lose my rights. I’m not down with that . ...

Re: Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

I got hooked on him with his juvenile books while I was in elementary school. Starship Troopers was always one of my favorite books, along with Stranger in a Strange L...

Re: Medicare- The Health Care Standard Everyone Should Have

This is one of my biggest worries. I retire in about three years and will have to go on medicare then. I don't have a real choice in the supplemental plan because I will get it from the state as part of my retirement. I have not heard any bad stories from retired state workers yet, but it is still b...
