Re: New Jersey high school students suspended after posting non-threatening pictures of legal gun-related activity

So they suspended a child for legally exercising a constitutionally protected right (2nd Amendment) off school grounds and not during school hours. Does that mean they could suspend a kid for exercising other constitutionally protected rights? What if they found out he goes to a church, or was spea...

Re: TX: You don't pull your gun because someone eggs your car.

Do we know for a fact that the victim of the initial assault fired his weapon? It appears that there are conflicting reports on this point. If so, then yes I believe that would be unlawful (disclaimer IANAL, and don't know for sure whether this type of assault justifies the use of deadly force), and...

Re: TX: New plan for justice in Dallas- No prosecution for petty crimes.

I'm sure the dallas DA will prosecute 30.06 breaking LTC'ers and let all other forms of trespass go. :roll: I'm sure you're right. So he's going to prosecute a misdemeanor that carries a maximum $200 fine, and can be very difficult to prove (issues of exact wording, size requirements, contrasting c...

Re: Ruger announces new .40 cal PC Carbine model

I will attest that the 9mm version works pretty darned good. Some additional type mag wells, and perhaps even some aftermarket stocks would be nice, though. :iagree: I'm constantly checking the companies who make PCC parts to see if there are any replacement stocks. Also, I noticed on the Ruger sto...

Re: Texas Gun Rights dot org

Can someone educate me on what exactly McNutt has done that is "crazy"? I heard that he introduced CC, and that he personally walked to houses in the Speaker's district to try and gin up support / pressure on the Speaker. Was this action unorthodox and confrontational, yes. Was it "crazy", no. But I...

Re: Don't need to show LTC to LEO when carrying.

Left! Apparently it's only for passing even though I wasn't the only one driving in the left lane! That's been a law for a long time. People driving in the left lane and slowing down traffic is a big issue around here. Glad he brought it to your attention and you got off with a warning. www.txdot.g...

Re: Should Americans Have to Pay to Access Police Body Cam Footage?

Vermont continues to struggle with legal questions surrounding the use of police body cameras. The Vermont Supreme Court hears arguments April 17 to determine whether its citizens must pay money to access police video footage. In Doyle v. Burlington Police Department, the police required a $220.50 ...

Re: MN: 5 year old boy picked up and thrown from the third floor at mall of America

Clearly the answer is "common sense" arm control. After all, what normal person "needs" to be able to lift the weight of a 5 year old child over a railing. Mandatory, permanently attached, arm weights would have prevented this senseless tragedy. If people have jobs where they absolutely need to lift...

Re: Would you shoot?

This is the definition of a challenging use of force decision for me, personally. And it has precisely zero to do with anyone's race, sexual orientation, or gender identity. One big problem here is that we are coming upon a situation after it has started. We don't know who the initial aggressor was,...

Re: Experience on the EAA Corp Sarsilmaz B6C Compact anyone?

When it comes to alot of things in life, I've found that almost all choices will get the job done, and the difference between the moderately priced options and their expensive counterparts is the difference between 95% and 100%. Guns are no exception to this. My most expensive gun cost me just under...

Re: TX: New plan for justice in Dallas- No prosecution for petty crimes.

Criminal trespassing : All misdemeanor criminal trespassing cases will be dismissed, as long as they don't involve a residence or "physical intrusion into property." Creuzot said this is targeted at helping the homeless, who are often charged with criminal trespass for "not having a place to go." C...

A step at a time disobeying or rewriting the law that our State Legislature has established. Then one day like bump stocks (a sign of a pen) became illegal so do your AR’s and pistols and I am assuming you will be just as willing (not carrying your EDC past a non enforeceable sign) to turn your AR’...

Re: HB 121 - Requires oral notice for 30.06 and 30.07

As I read it, it creates a defense to prosecution if you are personally asked to leave, you comply, but you are charged anyway. As it stands now, there is no defense to prosecution if you leave when asked; leaving only affects the level of offense. This is what Mr. Cotton put on his list of 2A bill...
