Re: Sheila Jackson Lee: House members will have to flood the Senate floor

I don't know that anyone has been prosecuted for lying under oath when giving testimony before a Legislative Committee. There are a whole host of Anti-gunners who should have been prosecuted including the MDA leader for Texas a few years ago when testifying about campus carry. https://www.youtube.co...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

I guess go ahead and not vote, back plumb out of the process. Yep, Texas will turn blue and you think you have problems now? Get some folks in the primaries, vote out Dan Patrick, but stay in the game. Or, don't complain, when we become Valenzuela light. I know it won't happen right off, first we b...

I'm watching an interview with the Fort Worth mayor on Fox4 DFW this morning. She just said a UBC would help identify who's got them (guns).
Hmmm... sounds an awful lot like a registry to me.

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Currently, 80% of all gun sales include a background check. Of the 20% that don't go through a background check, we believe about half are transfers between family members. Federal officials estimate that the remaining 10% of guns sold are involved in more than 80% of gun crimes. It is just common ...

Re: Texas Lt Gov calls for end to private gun sales?

:mad5 :mad5 :mad5 Good old Danny Goeb has lost my vote. What is with the "Republican" leadership? First Strauss 2.0 (Bonen) lying between his teeth about targeting other republicans in the primaries and now Patrick spouting off about essentially creating a gun registry? Do these politicians not unde...

Re: Joe Straus Letter in the Dallas News

I got the same tripe in my email yesterday as well. I usually hit 'delete', but this one I read - and then hit 'unsubscribe' afterward. Don't know how I got on that idiot's list anyway... If you answered his survey on legislative priorities for his last term as Speaker, you probably wound up on his...

Re: News Reports of Texas Gun Laws Taking Effect 9/1/19

All three of these articles just show A) How convoluted the law was as it was written - carrying a handgun in a place of worship was already legal unless the licensee was given effective notice under 30.06/7. To know this you had to read the whole of TPC 46.035 and get to section i. B) What poor rea...

Re: Florida Sheriff: ‘If You Need to Shoot Somebody, Shoot ’em a Lot’

This may be misinterpreted by people in a bad way. If you empty say 16 rounds into someone even though let's say there's video evidence of him attacking you with a knife. Even if you have stab wounds the D.A. will no matter what try his hardest for Death Penalty. Due to what's called "Over Kill". I...

Re: Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

With the neighbor himself. Otherwise none that I'm aware of as DPS is prohibited from supplying that information on individuals to anyone but law enforcement (if you are pulled over, when your DL is run, it will show you have an LTC.)

The first thing a company should tell their employees is that CITIZENS are allowed to carry their weapons at all times. Enough of this stupid nonsense.
Sorry. I couldn't resist. Badges don't grant special privileges.
In the eyes of Texas law, they do.
