:cheers2: That was an honorable end to the sidebar discussion (at a time when too many of these discussions go down a dark hole of ad nauseum jabs and personal comments). Thank you, FormerTSgt.
Thank you, sir. :cheers2:

In the same way that we all say that a gun is a great equalizer for a woman vs. a much larger man, I think that we could say the same thing about the 'gravitationally challenged' members of society.

Personally, I find actions of the OCT fools to be repugnant, but I'm not going to lower myself to insult them personally based on their physical traits. I hope you'll also consider doing the same.
I agree. Once you make it personal, you lose the argument. Their weight is their concern. Their actions are my concern.

Re: Gov. Abbott to sign HB910 and SB11 tomorrow

I just drove by and saw all the OCT idiots in a parking lot adjacent to Red's. I also noticed they are all morbidly obese and can barely walk straight, they more or less waddle across the parking lot. Not sure what good a firearm is going to do if you are so ridiculously out of shape that you can't move to use it.
