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Also, the order is written as non-precedential, so no one can use the logic or cite the case.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 Can you explain how a courts decision can be non-precedential?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 Also, the order is written as non-precedential, so no one can use the logic or cite the case.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 ...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

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...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

4. “I hate the children being taken away. The Democrats have to change their law. That’s their law.” This is false. As part of its border crackdown, the Trump administration is separating undocumented immigrant children from their parents largely due to a “zero tolerance” policy implemented by Atto...

Re: Illegal Kitty Keychain

I hate when the news incorrectly cites the law. The keychain is not illegal. Using it as brass knuckles is illegal. The definition of brass knuckles is anything with fingerholes and a guard, made of a hard substance, that is designed, made, or adapted for causing serious bodily injury or death. You ...

Re: Colorado Dem candidate pepper sprays himself video

I agree with TreyHouston. For the reasons everyone said plus some others, this is not a good solution, BUT it is better than nothing, especially for teachers who refuse to carry guns. I like the idea of arming teachers IF they want to be armed, but I recognize that not all of the good teachers are c...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

From what I have been able to find, the problem is that Obama did not do this very much, even though it was the law and policy. The uproar started when Sessions started a new policy of zero tolerance for illegals crossing the border. He has ordered the Dept of Justice to file criminal charges agains...

Re: Newbie!

Check in the waiting room. Times have run from two weeks to a little over a month. I think two to three weeks if there are no problems or questions seems to be average right now.

10 facts abut guns

Anyone ever heard of Dr. James D. Wright at Tulane University? It is not a name I usually tie in to gun control, but I might have to rethink that. I was doing some research at school today and stumbled across an article he wrote in 1995 for the journal Social Research and Public Policy. The article ...

Re: Does anybody here still carry a revolver?

On a side note: the article also claims the gun was stolen. How can that be? It was abandoned in a bathroom and found by this guy. He didn't take it from the detective. He took it from the bathroom. :biggrinjester: Just to clarify, since Florida and Texas may be similar in this case, but under our ...

Re: Youtube Boots Brownells Channel

I would stop using YouTube, but I don't use it enough for them to notice. But Google owns YouTube and I do use Google and have accounts with them. I doubt if my accounts mean much to them alone, but if a significant number of gun owners stop using Google, it might help them to rethink their anti-gun...

Re: 308 bolt gun or 308 AR

I don't think it counts as the most bang for the buck, but my favorite 308 is the Springfield Armory M1A. It is the semi-automatic only version of the M-14, which was, IMO, the best combat rifle the military ever had. Great for hunting and long distance shooting (well, long for me - 300 yards). Warn...

HEB at least where I live have 30.07 sign posted. I have never seen a sign at any Whataburger posted anywhere. I found out about that policy from this forum, would not have known otherwise. I agree that Whataburger should post like H.E.B. does. I remember when they announced their policy as telling...

Re: 30.06/7 signs and Parking Lots

The trick to remembering this is that the 30.06/30.07 laws only apply when you are carrying under the authority of your LTC. But since the LTC only applies when you are carrying against the normal law, it doesn't apply if you have a pistol concealed in your car in accordance with the law under secti...
