Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

3,000 babies MURDERED every day in our country....and people fight for the right to do it. That’s legal, and THIS is the lead story.

We live in a messed up world.

Re: Ever looked down a gun barrel held in an angry hand?

Yes. Two times. One time I "disarmed" the attacker. The other time, the situation de-escalated.

Both were over 40 years ago. I hope it NEVER happens again.

Re: Morman Church takes stand against guns in church

Holy cow. I cannot imagine going to church unarmed. We all know that churches have been, and mostly likely will, be targeted places. Putting this policy "out there" like this could make those parishioners ducks-in-a-barrel. The day my church says "no guns" is the day I quit attending. I know I want ...

Re: Noncompliance Kneecaps New Zealand's Gun Control Scheme

I was just reading this story. Kudos to those brave patriots that hold onto their only form of defense against a tyrannical government.

Ask Mr. Swallow-well how it boosted his presidential bid.

Re: Irresponsible dog owner

Unfortunately I had to shoot a pit at the gate to my ranch. Pulled off the highway, got out to open the gate, and the dog flew across to confront me. (It had done this before). This time he got too close, so I popped him twice with my .45. The dog rolled over and died where the grass meets the aspha...

Re: Will Obama be arrested for illegal spying on Trump campaign?

My only input is this: I'm tired of the "let us worry about the next election", and letting crooks, thieves, and liars get off because we don't want to "cause a ruckus".

That's the whole dam problem with our country, we don't want accountability in the name of getting along.

Enough.

Re: Speaker Bonnen's betrayal of Texas gun-owners

Face it: Texas is turning blue. When many other states around the country are turning to or entertaining constitutional carry, we’ve ground to a halt.

Pop this thread up two years from now. I got $5 that says we’ll be going backwards by then.

Lord I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.

Re: Missouri ROCKS!!!

Nice sentiment. Call me when it's signed by the Governor. They have a 2/3rds majority. It can bypass the governor if need be. It would be amazing to see this run through and get signed. This would essentially create a "2A sanctuary state" which I always imagined Texas to be. We'll get there.... Nop...

Colorado AG Says.....

The Colorado AG says that Sheriffs that won't enforce gun confiscation laws should resign.

Gentlemen, it's going to be a very bumpy ride these next few years. I fear for our country.

Re: New Zealand: 2 separate mass shootings at Mosques kill 50

If the left has their way here, they'll be wanting us to do the same thing here in VERY short order. It can, and I predict it WILL happen. (The order that is....) While the right is busy worrying about what the media is going to say about them on tonight's talking head shows, the left is mobilizing ...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I said very early on in this thread that this was going to be a dirty bust.

I do not know how Acevedo is not being fired for this. But, we live in a screwed up world....to many crooked people in positions of power keeping their jobs if they sit on the golden side of the political divide.
