Re: HB 497 - Add Types and Uses of Ammunition to Required LTC Course Curriculum

I think it's important to note that the existing law does not require any certain type of holster, and we here on the boards have pondered ad nauseum as to whether this holster or that fits the wording of "belt or shoulder holster." Forcing LTC instructors to cover holster types when no specific def...

Mercy Killing of Animals

Another post I just read made a question pop into my head: are there circumstances where it is legal in Texas to kill an animal to relieve pain and suffering? If so, what are they? For example - I found a pigeon in my back yard a couple weeks ago that had been badly wounded - mauled by a cat perhaps...

Had a good LEO experience yesterday

I was bringing in some stuff from the car after a trip to the hardware store. I was OC with jeans and a polo. An old man walked past the house so I waved and said hello, and he waved back. 20 seconds later I hear a loud noise and look over and see the old man face-down on the ground in the street. I...

Re: LTC Not Accepted at Polling Location

I used my LTC when I voted. It wouldn't scan and the lady actually commented to her partner "I have not been able to scan ANY LTCs all day!" and they were looking at it and it looks like the barcode on the back is different on the DL and LTC. Like the barcode they are set up to scan doesn't exist on...

Re: Are you voting in the 2018 Midterms?

My wife finally got her proof of citizenship a few months ago after mistakenly having a green card (because her dad was too stupid to get her US citizenship when she was born abroad). She is registered and this will be her first time voting - we're both headed out to keep Texas red this afternoon! :...

Re: Medical Facilities

Wait, I'm confused. How does being on government property factor into the validity of the signage? I thought the AG opinion RE: Dallas Zoo basically said that private entities operating on government property have the authority to post valid signs. Am I missing something? The opinion was very caref...

Re: Medical Facilities

In my experience, virtually any healthcare or medical related facility will be posted. Doctors have to have enough individual variety that this isn't a coincidence. There must be some mandate somewhere. Does anyone know where? Well, sort of. There is a requirement in Government Code section 411.204...

Re: Medical Facilities

Every hospital, urgent care facility, and drug testing facility I've ever seen in Texas is posted 06 and 07. Every doctor's office, dentist office, and specialty clinic I've visited except for one was not posted. YMMV

Re: Do not shoot truck rustlers

I notice it said he was taken into custody but no charges yet. Could be they just need to conduct an investigation. Questions that could need answering before deciding to let the guy loose could include: 1. Was the guy carrying legally? 2. Was it actually his truck being stolen? 3. Did the woman go ...

Re: Senetor John McCain dies at 81

I was always taught that in situations like this "if you can't say nothin' nice, don't say nothin' at all."

Thus I have remained silent on the subject. :tiphat:
