Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I'm pretty sure if the population votes we won't be changing the clocks anymore. Just end it!

Re: Houston found a way to pay the FD

Since the voters wanted to give firefighters a raise, raise the voters taxes to pay for it.

Re: Clean your carry mags!

Clean the mags after every shooting session, especially with my Shield. I clean them with Rem Oil, spray the insides and wipe them out. Rem Oil has silicone and helps with feeding, got this tip from a Smith & Wesson guy.

Was there an approved tax increase to fund the raise?
Not that I know of, if the voters want the firefighters to have a raise where do they think the money will come from?
I'm questioning why put something on the ballot when the outcome doesn't go your way you take it to court?

Houston firefighters pay raise

The voters voted for a pay raise, the city doesn't want to honor it. The city wants to take it to court. I don't get it, if the issue was put on the ballot and passes how does the city even contest it? If it got turned down the city would be happy. Of course the city says it can't afford to give pay...
