Re: Only Democratic Socialists

This made my day. The whole thing is more believable as a South Park episode than real life. My coworkers thought I was bonkers earlier today from laughing so much.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I'll be there this time. I have some interesting things to tell, from NPS carry to some bold DIY plans to me taking a firearm permanently out of carry rotation. Looking forward to Saturday.

Re: list of successful chl self-defense?

For those who somehow get cornered, may I suggest deflecting the gun control portion. It's not the guns or knives or acid or bombs that are the problem. The people behind them are the problem. Remind those folks that the real problem can't be solved if we don't talk about it. Pretending it doesn't e...

Re: El Paso Walmart Shooting

This is a sad tragedy. Condolences to all affected. That said, everyone has their own opinions on why this happened, what caused it, how to prevent it, etc. I have my own opinions too. Simply put in one sentence: We need to treat this like we do any other senseless crime, big or small, as an epidemi...

I guess I should be arrested for hate crimes against humanity because I hold the door open for everyone? :confused5

Re: Obigation to correct someone?

Something very similar happened to me this past Saturday. I was open carrying, which isn't something I do regularly. It just happened to be DFW breakfast Saturday, so why not. Anyhow, I ended up in a very interesting conversation with a random gentleman at a store about private security firms and th...

Re: Do you have anything on you or in your truck?

I too have gotten stopped recently. It was by a DPS trooper near Midland. He rightfully caught me for speeding, although his estimation of my speed may have been inflated a bit. I didn't bother arguing because A: I honestly didn't know how fast I was going at the time (I was distracted and had many ...

Re: Active Shooter In California Tonight

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jul/29/gilroy-shooting-us-gun-control-california All the guns fault. Legally bought the Semi automatic rifle in Nevada in early July, then illegally brought it into California. It'd be a very different, but similarly toned article if the bad guy used a Ruger...

Re: Active Shooter In California Tonight

That is incredibly sad to hear. It's always heartbreaking to hear about events like these. The worst part is that for a county of about 2 million people, only 30 or so carry permits have been issued. I highly doubt anyone of those would've been carrying at that festival or anywhere populated. When w...

Re: Wash DC: MAGA hat wearing teens get ugly with drum beating indigenous people

Indeed it is disappointing. It is also insanely aggravating. I get it. Opinion pieces are just that: opinions. I definitely agree that opinions are well within the rights of the first ammendment. “Few principles of law are as well-established as the rule that statements of opinion are not actionable...

Re: At least four dead in Los Angeles shooting spree

My favorite quote from the KTLA article:
Though Zaragoza was armed with a gun at the time, it is unclear if the weapon was used during any of the earlier attacks, Hayes said.
Huh?

Re: Did the Russians affect your vote?

Affected my vote? Not like it really mattered. In 2016, I was stuck voting in CA, so my ballot was a lost cause anyway. I ended up voting for Johnson because... Um... I actually had no good reason. But to be fair and unbiased, saying that the Russians meddled with the election is like saying that on...
