Re: TX: 3 Houston women murdered in less than 24 hours, possible serial killer

I am glad they caught the guy. He negatively impacted a lot of lives in a very short time. On the bright side, it seems HPD Chief Acevedo is now a proponent of concealed carry... I am not really counting on his ongoing support though. This from the article. "We need the community to help us find th...

Re: TX: Hockley 3 yo shoots self. Second child in a week

Last year 41 people died by TV sets tipping over. Seven teens die every day texting and driving. About 87 children under age 4 drown in a bathtub every year. 36 kids die in locked hot cars every year. Obviously any child getting shot by a mishandled gun is a tragedy but this is not a LTC issue but ...

Re: Teens were armed during burglary...

"Hunter said that two firearms were recovered from the residence at the Oaks of Lewisville Apartments. One was a shotgun that one of the residents claimed as their own. The other was a pistol that police have been unable to confirm if it is a registered weapon." Unable to confirm if it was a regist...

Re: San Antonio considering using zoning to reduce the number of gun shops

Well, if they pull a stunt like that, I certainly hope there is a legal remedy for those that own the businesses affected. That smacks of San Francisco tactics right there.

Re: • Is gang activity on the rise? A movement to abolish gang databases makes it hard to tell

Gangs have a LOT of money. Bribes are an old criminal tactic. What are the odds that no one in any gang thought about, or are actually, bribing officials to make life easier for the gang(s)? Look at the corruption in places like Mexico, where the cartels regularly buy officials. Seriously, does anyo...

Re: Voting with your feet

Some of them are like a Biblical plague of locusts. They settle into a green field, eat it barren, then fly off en masse to the next green field to repeat the process.

Re: Connecticut assault victim gets 18 months in jail for stabbing attacker

The topic is straying a bit but since we are talking about fighting back and what we tell our kids I will mention my concern with the fighting lessons. Many of us older fellers in here can remember having fist fights all through school and many times there would be a new found friendship after gett...

Re: Media called an AR-15 a semiautomatic rifle!

Most here know that the media will twist things about firearms in whatever direction they want things to go. But, then again, they can't make up their own minds about all of it, either. One minute a "killer cop" is proof that all police should be disarmed, then the next, a dedicated officer with his...

Re: Where Is L.E. When Antifa Shows UP?

Do you ever notice that they only pull their little leftist stunts where the local political regime is sympathetic to them? Of course the police in those places are told to stand down, and likely those police who are go-getters, or very dedicated to the job, are asked to take a day of leave, or are ...

Re: Texas Driver Shot by Man Whose Rifle Fired as He Cleaned it

I really think the "I was cleaning my gun" stories are many times fantasies to coverup stupid acts that are not related to cleaning at all. I'm with you on this one. I've purchased a few new firearms over the years, and in every manual it talked about the first step for cleaning being the unloading...

Re: What Is The No. 1 Reason For Such Hatred?

He's a businessman with his own money, so he doesn't need them. He's an "old guy" who doesn't need to build a "legacy" as such, so he does what he wants. Also, as an "old guy", he still thinks of America as the best country, versus just some other cog in the one-world globalist scheme. To top it off...

Re: Any Recourse Against Sneaky Tax Raise?

I'm sure folks who are flipping houses just love the values going up year after year, but that doesn't mean a thing to me because I don't plan on selling my house, ever. If I had to, it would only be because of bad circumstances far beyond my control. So, all I see is paying more money out for ZERO ...

Re: Ruger announces pistol caliber carbine in 9mm

Nice, if I carried a glock Id be looking hard at this one. If they come out with a SA XD compatible magwell Id be interested as well. I think the modular design of the magazine well lends itself for a variety of different wells being produced, at least for the most popular handgun types, that is. S...
