Re: Ellis County Court Opened To LTC

Looks like they’re talking about the old historic building: https://www.waxahachietx.com/news/20190715/celebration-held-to-reopen-doors-of-historic-ellis-county-courthouse I, too, live here. I believe that it is primarily, if not exclusively, a museum now. More importantly, I'm so glad our new coun...

PA Supreme Court - Concealed carry is not RAS of a crime

The case is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania vs. Michael J. Hicks, decided on 5/31/19. The opinion can be downloaded from here https://law.justia.com/cases/pennsylvania/supreme-court/2019/56-map-2017.html . I note a few things: - It follows many other jurisdictions and the SCOTUS in that it declines...

Re: TX: Serial killer who murdered 11 Texas elderly women in US illegally

One more thought: how many of these women might be alive today if they had a $200 shotgun and a few shells? My heart breaks thinking about what a needless loss of life this was. My blood boils thinking about the evil on display in that elderly lives were worth less than their jewelry. I pray that he...

Re: TX: Serial killer who murdered 11 Texas elderly women in US illegally

<sarcasm>He just came here to work. We have a shortage of medical professionals. This will get worse as the baby boom retires. We need him to pay our Social Security given our declining birth rate. Africa is terrible; who can blame him for wanting to be here? Immigrants are less likely than native b...

Re: Dallas Under-Funding Police to the Point Where Life-Threatening Calls Go Unanswered

The problem with all urban areas of Texas is the same one we see all over the country right now. Secular progressives are in charge and they are pursuing the failed policies of Chicago, D.C, and everywhere else that goes bust., etc. They got a later start here since reasonable people controlled thes...

Re: Small victory in Illinois: FOID ruled unconstitutional

Not small. I'm not an attorney but my understanding is that the FOID has been around for decades and is the foundation for all of IL's regulations. I don't expect the IL Supreme Court will uphold it precisely for the paradigm-shattering importance that it represents. Remember, this is an OWNERSHIP l...

Re: Hadn't had his coffee yet?

Just this weekend I encountered the same thing outside our church but with a different authority. My wife said "nice stop, dad" as I merged onto one street from another. I said "you mean that yield sign?" She said, "Was it really a yield? All these years I thought it was a stop sign!" We got a good ...

Re: DFW West/SW Quadrant Tactical Handgun Training

Had an awesome time yesterday with this group! Phil and Cesare did a great job. :fire :iagree: Top takeaway for me: I'm squeezing my whole gun hand and not just my trigger finger. This causes my gun to dip low and left. When just target shooting this doesn't happen as much because I'm slow and deli...

Re: 2017 Wait time

9/4 Renewal sent online. It will be interesting to see how long it takes with the expected "new cheaper rate" surge.

Good to know. My email does say the 16th so I've replied and asked him for confirmation that it is actually the 23rd. Looking forward to this!

Re: Texas Man Learns the Hard Way: When You Shoot an Armadillo, Bring Enough Gun

A .22 rifle round apparently will penetrate their armor and kill them but not immediately. You still get the show of it pinballing off of whatever is around as it jumps higher than expected and runs with surprising speed. Ask me how I know. :totap: On the bright side I didn't have to clean up what I...
