Re: SCOTUS Allows Sandy Hook Lawsuit to Proceed

Justice gone awry. The Texas Supreme Court would have quickly tossed the Sandy Hook case had that happened here. Three of the seven judges on the Connecticut Supreme Court did not believe the case should have proceeded. Do not see how the plaintiffs in the case can prove that Remington's marketing c...

Re: Lit Up-Sonora,Texas

Were you speeding? Was it a possibility? Anyway, sounds like you and the officer had a nice and cordial transaction. Good question! As I left town there was a speed zone of 45 then it went to 55 and eventually to 75 outside of town. When he lit me up I was just at the 55 mph speed zone sign and I l...

Re: TX: Missing NH couple found buried on South Texas beach

The Utah suspect had pending warrants out of Utah for failures to appear on various felonies or misdemeanors. He probably hiding out down in Corpus Christi on the beach. Wonder if this was a total stranger on stranger encounter and the poor tourists were just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Wh...

Lit Up-Sonora,Texas

Headed northbound out of town on 277--LEO southbound and lit me up. Pulled over to right shoulder. . LEO-I pulled you over for your speed. Me--Here is my driver's license and handgun license if you would like to look at them. LEO-Where is your handgun? Me--In the console. LEO-Nods. LEO-Let me go bac...

Re: A little more of the NRA is being told

Hope the NRA gets the litigation settled quickly so as to focus on Nov. 2020.
Allen West is on the board-- one of the good guys and he called for LaPierre to step down. So, looks like even the Board of Directors is divided on this one.
Just don't know what to think about this now.

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

All of this reminds me of the botched raid in Houston--what is the status of those cases? Grand jury indictments?...Trial settings?...

Don't know if this has been previously posted but did some looking around and found on Youtube the trial judge's charge to the jury on guilt/innocence--well worth watching and thinking about:

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Why Guyger’s attorneys failed to prepare her to answer a critical question like that correctly is a mystery. Perhaps they did and she just blew it. Since her texting/sexting has come out in the open, I wonder what she was concentrating on during that deescalation class if she remembered none of it?...

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Van Horn, TX

If you want to experience some driving desolation then a trip on IH10 between El Paso and Ft. Stockton will fit the bill.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Would like to read the eventual charge submitted to the jury in this case. Is there such a thing as "castle doctrine mistake of fact?" If so, I have never heard of it--maybe there is precedent, not sure. The jury could go two ways on this--one--believing the officer should be held to a higher standa...

Re: Colt Suspends Civilian AR-15 Manufacturing

Has anybody done a market share analysis of AR15 sales?

I assume Smith and Wesson, Ruger, Mossberg, Remington (Bushmaster) and others will be glad to hear of one less competitor.

Re: What oil/lube do you use

This is always a fun topic.

These days I use Hoppe's No. 9 solvent or Hoppe's Elite as cleaners and Lucas Extreme Duty Gun Oil as a lubricant/protectant.
I really like the Lucas product--has a consistency somewhere between oil and grease--good stuff!

Re: Walmart has fallen!

I read Walmart's corporate statement posted previously where its president wrote that no more .223 rounds will be sold or 7.62 by 39 because, well, they can be used in "high capacity" magazines. How about the venerable .308...isn't it the ammo for the AR10 rifle that has a standard 20 round magazine...

Re: Man trespassed for life from ALL Walmarts for OCing a holstered handgun

A few questions: Which Wal-Mart did this happen at? What happened before the cell phone video started recording? Does the Wal-Mart manager "have an attitude?" Why should the guy sign anything? Observations: When cops get a trespass call at a business this is how they handle it. If you do not leave y...
