Re: Can Carrying OC Spray Cause Legal Issues? Andrew Branca Discusses

This is a very good question, and I’ve heard reasonable arguments both pro and con. I forget who I head explain it, but argument against carrying OC spray went something like this: You shoot someone in self defense while carrying an OC spray can. The DA decides to prosecute you because you didn’t t...

Re: Can Carrying OC Spray Cause Legal Issues? Andrew Branca Discusses

I suspected that was the case, but I work in the IT industry. Speaking in acronyms can cause confusion when the same group uses the same acronyms to mean different things. :biggrinjester: I am in engineer by education, an artilleryman/trainer by profession with secondary of IT. I do know better. :o...

Pfft.
I retired from active duty in 2012. Next year, I'll be too old for the State Guard. I am the militia and we don't have silly rules/policies such as this.

Re: HB 1927 on the Senate floor now

Eric Brakey, a former Maine legislator who'd sponsored Maine's CC bill, posted on FB yesterday (on the Gun Owners of Maine page) that Gov Abbott would be signing the CC bill this Thursday. No link to a corroborating source, though, so take it with a grain or three of salt. The best I've found is Ra...

Re: HB 1927 on the Senate floor now

by my count, tomorrow is the last day to sign, not sign, or veto HB 1927. I can't find anything about a signing ceremony. TLO indicates abbott's not taking any action. If he signs it becomes law. If he doesn't sign, it still becomes law. If he vetoes, then its done. Either way, the only way this th...

Re: Under 21 Possession

SABRE Red is good. Gel is not good. It can take up to 45 seconds to take effect if it does not hit the eyes. The twist tab unit has been known to be inadvertently activated. The best form factor is a flip-top lid such as https://get-pom.com/ . This is covered in the Chuck Haggard videos I listed in ...
