Re: Rep Elijah Cummings dead

Trey Gowdy posted the following on facebook; Elijah Cummings was one of the most powerful, beautiful & compelling voices in American politics. The power and the beauty came from his authenticity, his conviction, the sincerity with which he held his beliefs. We rarely agreed on political matters. We...

Re: AL: Clerk with own gun runs off armed robbers

In very extreme intense situations my brain seams to slow down time and automatically know what to do, yeah im sure most of you are saying "bull" but it's the truth. I don't doubt that you experience the sensations, but research shows that it's an illusion - it doesn't enable you to make more or fa...

Re: California Man Mysteriously Freed After Selling Illegal AR-15s

I wonder if this could reverse other charges for people in the same situation?? It would have to wouldn't it? Maybe not nation wide but in the 9th circuit, no? No, because the prosecution & defendant cut a deal, which ended the trial before it would have established precedent. https://www.google.co...

Re: PG&E Cutting Power

Those tall dead pines are like Roman candles just waiting to be lit. Standing deadwood is also a mighty crush-injury hazard when a stiff breeze fells either the entire tree, or just a large limb. When mentoring young troops, we point out these as things to avoid pitching a tent/building shelter nea...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Could be random, could be bad luck, could be the people he procured his herb from were less than stellar citizens . And the early verdict, "Killed in a drug deal." In this exchange, looks like he was the seller and not the buyer. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/special-reports/botham-jean/joshua-...

It may already be pay-walled. It only gives the intro you posted, & clicking on the "Read More" link just refreshes the same page (at least for me).

Re: TX: Dallas man goes back to bed after shooting burglar.

... So if the homeowner knew that the items in his shed were worth less than $1,500 the failure to report statute might not apply (no underlying felony offense). But if the stuff in his shed was less than the felony level of $1500 then shooting at the burglar could not be justified even if all the ...

Re: Dallas Swat kills suspect carrying “assault rifle”

I think having a weapon in hand while trying to escape is going to qualify the dead guy as a legitimate target. I suppose we shall see. What was the crime or probable cause? Running while legally possessing a long gun? From reading the linked article, I'd guess the probable cause for the warrant th...

Re: Dallas Swat kills suspect carrying “assault rifle”

What is the policy on shooting fleeing felons?? Not just a fleeing felon, but one who poses a clear and imminent threat to the community at large. Dunno about Dallas, but many jurisdictions have the, "imminent threat," statement, whereby stopping a deadly threat is justified. That's good to know. A...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

It's been a couple days since I heard this on the news and can't remember who said the following. I think it was a defense lawyer, a woman, that was talking about the circumstances the she, Guyger, knew them to be at the time she fired her shots. The lawyer was talking about her options and I thoug...

Apparently the FBI has been monitoring a thread on the dark web regarding a potential mass shooting to coincide with the opening of the new Joker movie. Actual location...

Re: TRUGLO sights ugh

Bobby,

Typically the front sight dot is used for closer distances to compensate for the height-over-bore for a point of aim / point of impact since the bullet's trajectory is still on the rising branch (ie, 3-15 yards), and the top of the front sight blade is used for 25 yards.
