Re: Hearing Protection?....Oops.

34 years field artillery. Cannoneers know what loud is. My first MOS was 13B (Field Artillery Crewman), then OJT 13E (Fire Direction). Also 13C and 13D. Also Pershing Missile Officer and Cannon Officer. My Fire Direction Center was never more than 150 feet (50 meters) from the 155mm (M109 through A...

Re: Hearing Protection?....Oops.

How about getting past parallel to an 8 inch howitzer? I was a new 13E (Fire Direction Specialist) and my Sgt told me to go get something from one of the gun crews. Well they were busy getting ready to fire, so I figured I'd just stand off to the side til they were done. After I picked myself up off...

Re: Trump: Banning Suppressors?

I have stayed out of this whole debate, mostly because it strayed so far off course. But in case anyone is interested, if Trump tried to ban anything, it would go to SCOTUS, and be overturned. Secondly, I don't believe Trump, is well informed, on guns, suppressors, or any other firearm, related ite...

Re: 2019 Firearms Related Bills That Made it to Governor Abbot

Thanks for posting this. I'd specifically like to know more about how HB 121 works. On the surface it appears that this will effectively render 30.06 signage null and void in most realistic scenarios. I'm already exempt as a VESP, but it would be nice to have yet another defense to prosecution. The...

Re: 2019 Firearms Related Bills That Made it to Governor Abbot

... 3) Only written communication (sign/card), it is a class C, no defense (except VSP engaging in their duties per DPS guidelines). (Existing code) The defense to prosecution for 30.06 and 30.07 simply states: "It is a defense to prosecution under this section that the license holder is volunteer ...

Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

Not that CA isn't crazy, but it's not entirely impossible to travel with a firearm there. I just make sure that whatever I bring has a capacity limit of 10 rounds ... so I typically drive there with either my .357 snubbie, or my 10-round M&P45 Full Size. As far as long guns go, I'd probably bring e...

Re: Firearm in vehicle at work

The problem will be that it will be hard to prove wrongful termination since Texas is an “at will” state. They don’t have to give any reason for firing you. The parking lot law only protects you from prosecution for trespass, or other prosecution. IANAL. IANAL either, but I'm almost certain that th...

Re: Post Mortem

An accomplishment I didn't see posted already: All the bad bills that didn't pass. There was a fairly lengthy list as I recall. Good defense is also good play, just not as spectacular as good offense. When there is divided government, or your party is in the minority, preventing "bad" bills is a bi...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

Do stores need to individually post 30.06 or 30.07 signs, or does the whole private property ‘no firearms’ cover everything? To cover this part of your question. The whole mall can be posted if done correctly. That would cover entry into the building and therefore any stores within the building. If...

Re: California Move to Restrict Deadly Force

For example, if I wake up at 3 AM to the sound of glass breaking and turn the corner to see a man in my house, I would think that would meet the "necessary" standard. If it does not, then I agree that this standard is overly strict. I may be wrong, but the way I read it is that unless deadly force ...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

If they choose not to post signs that comply with the requirements of 30.06 and / or 30.07, then any other signage is meaningless to an LTC holder. They could also choose to notify folks orally, or to hand out cards to everyone with the required verbiage. There is also a slight difference between 30...

Re: California Move to Restrict Deadly Force

On the surface, this doesn't seem too bad. After all, as a private citizen I would hope that I would only use deadly force if it is "necessary" to save the lives of myself or someone else. Imposing this same standard does not seem like "declaring war on cops". That said, I am not a lawyer, so I don'...
