Re: HB 131 - Here come "Extreme Risk Protection Orders"......

This is not a personal situation, but as a "retired" USAF Senior NCO, I saw several airmen and NCOs go through bitter divorces. It's generally understood that many divorce lawyers will use any and every edge to get a "win" in the proceedings. What better thing to use for leverage than an "Extreme Ri...

Re: Interesting gun bills filed for 2019 session

I don't think the bill declaring Texas-made and owned firearms not being subject to Federal jurisdiction will pass muster, especially in light of what has happened in other states. However, the other bill about not aiding the Feds regarding gun laws, not in conjunction with another crime, might. Aft...

Re: IL:Security Guard holding bar shooter on ground shot and killed by police by accident

Well, after reading the news stories, I'm going to guess that the city is going to pay up in an out-of-court settlement that will result in one or two people losing their jobs. Terrible business all around, feel bad for the security guard and his family.

Re: Texas Judge Releases Nearly All Defendants After Losing Re-Election

The public defender said he believed the judge thought “that’s what the voters wanted.” Well, I see where he's going with that. The Democrat Party always says our justice system is terrible and incarcerates too many youthful offenders. The voters in Harris County voted out Republicans and replaced ...

Re: Maryland’s ‘Red Flag’ Law Turns Deadly: Officer Kills Man Who Refused To Turn In Gun

I had the very same concerns when these types of laws were being proposed some time ago. That the laws would be used in a malicious fashion in some cases, and perhaps simply out of spite against someone. My thought was hostile divorce proceedings, in an effort to make one party look "dangerous" so a...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Senator is a state-wide office...so is Governor. Senator Cruz won by a rather small margin; Governor Abbott won by a sizeable margin. I think the difference between the two races highlights that Texas is still a very conservative state, AND that Senator Cruz was late "getting into the game" against ...

Re: Thief gets shot in the back

You know what would be really nice? If folks would keep their hands off of property that doesn't belong to them. I'd imagine that it might cut down on someone's chances of getting shot while fleeing with stolen property, if they didn't steal said property to begin with. I despise thieves with a pass...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Lots of discussion about why to vote for someone or why not to vote for someone. The primary focus of this forum is firearms. The primary focus of how I vote is firearms, specifically if a candidate is pro-or-anti Second Amendment, and not simply offering lip service about hunting, etc. If a politic...

Well, my problem is this: why not bust him for the ILLEGAL DRUGS? Why not bust him previously for the violent behavior? To me, the mass news media, in their eternal hatred of firearms and the 2nd Amendment, made this guy an internet cause with their manipulation of the facts of the events. They WANT...

Re: Post your favorite, Safe Queen Shooter

My Ruger Match Champion fits the OP's definition the best. WAY too nice a firearm to be carrying, even though it would be excellent for the task. I would just hate to ever be forced to use it in a real-world situation, and run the risk of not getting it back. I do try to take it out and run a couple...

Re: NPC - the new way to insult liberals

I love how NYT labeled it as "mild voter suppression". You know, because even though the left aren't "NPCs", they will just believe a meme about what day voting occurs instead of looking it up for themselves. Priceless. "rlol"

Re: Antifa Violence in Portland, OR

If I were a police officer in Portland, I'd be looking for another job. Somewhere with a lower cost of living that would offset the likely lower wages. Also, somewhere that doesn't have leftists taking over the city streets with the blessings of a crooked mayor.

Re: OK GOP. You win

The primaries are over. The GENERAL election is next month.

However, compared to the Democrat Socialist Party, the Republicans still look sane, by and large. ...
