Re: Texas: San Antonio needs French speaking volunteers

Congolese French isn't that far-removed from normal French; a Congolese lady at work and I chat from time to time and I've yet to notice anything unusual, but my French is only at the level of a 10-yr old. Seems to be correct. I just called some up on YouTube. It is remarkably Parisian, but of cour...

Soft locking rifle case?

Can anyone recommend a rifle case which is small / slim, canvas or similar, and which has some kind of a locking mechanism on it? Analogous to a bank's bag in which they carry cash and lock the zipper. I'm thinking in terms of Safe Passage (18 USC) where I'm intending to transport a Henry Big Boy ac...

Re: Survey of other states' knife laws

That's a start, but ultimately he really needs to develop a one-page matrix: states in the first column down the side, and types of knives in the first row across the the top. And X's in the intersecting boxes where the types of knives are legal. And yes, I did email him that suggestion.

Re: TX: brass knuckles, kitty keychain etc ban lifted...

Just as a potentially amusing factoid, I found no version of the kitty key chain for sale on Amazon this morning. I figured what the heck, given that it has come up in conversation and will likely be legalized, I'd pick up a couple for myself and for use as future stocking stuffers. None, not even k...

Re: TX: brass knuckles, kitty keychain etc ban lifted...

It came out of both House and Senate Committees unanimously and out of both chambers unanimously - no nays anywhere. In view of that, it is not likely that the Governor's office will interfere with it. Furthermore, it's often the case that the Governor's staff will signal in advance if there is an i...

Re: Female gun ownership and the rise of fashionable "carrywear"

IMO, the purse market is still highly lacking, and a lot of it is sexist to boot. I won't even look at most of the products, which are toward the frilly or rhinestone-y end of the spectrum. And/or the construction quality just isn't there. And/or the prices are ridiculous for what is offered. And/or...

Re: Company Email - No Guns in Cars

State trumps company policy, but it's worth clarifying that federal trumps state, to the effect that the same thing is not true for employee parking lots that are part of federal properties, correct? And especially Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) parking lots, where many different rules apply. Do correct m...

Re: TX: Attempted kidnapping on San Antonio Riverwalk

If that abductor had succeeded in forcing that woman into his vehicle, there would have been no way for law enforcement to issue an emergency alert for her recovery -- even with witnesses who had seen his actions and who had taken photographs of his car (which presumably included the license plate, ...

HB 1271 - earlier parole for violent offenders

HB 1271 would pave the way for much earlier releases of violent offenders -- AND it would apply retroactively. Please consider contacting your state rep to oppose it.

Re: TX: League City gun range blamed for bullet holes in new homes

There doesn't appear to be anyone commenting here from the range itself. Or they are reading and their legal advisers recommended against commenting publicly, so they are silent. I rent a garage in the adjacent storage complex (you can see it on the KHOU video), so I'm out there probably an average ...

Re: Alligator defense question

Update on this alligator question. I found an eye witness who explained to me that the monster gator was lurking in the area because (get this) some people north of us are intentionally feeding it. They reportedly trained it to come when they call (and they don't appear to have a hunting permit - th...

Re: One more time (defense against animals)

One of those previous ambiguous threads was likely mine, because I had the same question after a loose pit bull was shot and killed about 200 feet from my back porch earlier this year. By the luck of the draw, the shooter in that case was a LEO who happened to be driving by and saw a screaming woman...

Re: Bear protection?

All bears are not created alike. Black bears can often be discouraged from interaction without resorting to deadly force. Grizzly bears? Do whatever you feel is necessary. A dog might be a mixed blessing. Some bears hate them, so a dog might be a draw. But our dog is utterly terrified of bears (and ...

Re: Alligator defense question

... If there is no discernable boundary between your property and that of USACE fee lands, and you have widow makers or dead timber that you are unsure of who owns what, go to the park office and ask to talk to someone. They are not unreasonable folks. Except I'd have to go to that office on a trip...
