Re: Missouri ROCKS!!!

Does this mean machine guns, suppressors and SBR's are allowed with no tax? Will the Missouri government fight the federal government when a Missourian is caught with a NFA item and no stamp on basis of this law? It means it's not a state violation to have those things. If the feds catch you with t...

Re: HB 302/SB 472 - Owners/Guests/Tenants of Condos cannot be barred from Carrying

HB 302 was favorably reported from committee today with substitutions. The committee substitute changes the "Exception to the application of" 30.05/6/7 to a "Defense do prosecution". It also extends the defense to lessees of condominiums. This bill has also picked up 63 Authors, Joint Authors and Co...

Re: TABC sting goes bad for them

Law enforcement is like watching them make sausage. Particularly too those who respect and believe in the law and constitutional rights. What rally bugs me about this incident is the reluctance of the county attornyto call out the crooked TABC agent. Brazos County Attorney Rod Anderson, whose offic...

I can understand enhancing penalties for brandishing an imitation firearm, but I have misgivings for making the penalties the same as for a real one. That it's an imitation indicates there's no intention to harm anyone, so it seems a less serious offense to me. Of course, brandishing an imitation f...

Re: SB 1555 - Authorization to carry in a school

Seems to me to be unnecessary. Why can't the school just request to see the actual license? Because the LTC holder is under no obligation to show it outside of when ID is demanded by a law enforcement officer. Think of how this law can be abused. Currently, there is no way the public can get a reco...

Re: HB 2949 - Expedited Special License for Certain At-Risk Persons

No! If they want to carry a handgun they can (a) take the class, pass the tests, pass a background check, and have the same carry restrictions as the rest of us, (b) get the law changed so the right to keep and bear arms in Texas is not infringed, or (c) move to a state where the right to keep and ...
