Re: I'm Ashamed.

Until I start seeing a bevy of 30.06 signs going up, I'm going to continue my usual practice of OC where legal. These businesses have the same right to conduct their business as they see fit just as we do to exercise our mode of CHL carry where legal.

Re: I'm Ashamed.

Yesterday my wife needed baby stuff and we were right by ( WALMART ).

I stayed in the Vehicle and wouldn't go in at leas...

I'm too old to fight, and too slow to run. So I carry. ALL the time.
:iagree:; and, I try to avoid places where I'm not allowed to legally carry.

Re: What would YOU do?

Hypothetical question: You, your SO and maybe your spawn, are in your neighborhood Walmart on a Saturday afternoon looking for bird feed, kitty litter, and some snackers, mixers, etc. Suddenly, you hear what you perceive to be gunshots! You are legally carrying your fully loaded, cocked and locked ...

Re: Chief executives of 145 companies urge Senate to pass gun control laws

We don't need gun control laws, we need armed guards everywhere; you know, like they have in Israel.

Something is gonna' get passed, just wait and see.

I'll never forget, nor forgive, the barbaric murder of innocent American peoples on that date or the barbaric murders by other savages of the same ilk since then.

FWIW, I believe this is a Shia festival, not observed by other sects of Islam.
That's what I read elsewhere. In any event, it is the height of barbaric stupidity!

Re: The face tattoo test works flawlessly

I remember, as a 'yoot, going to the County Fair where one could see the Tattooed Ladies and the Hermaphrodites in their tents. Their tents were usually on the back row of the Fairgrounds. The cost was a quarter for a peek?

Now they are all over TV and.....where else?

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Here is most of an email I received from Dan Patrick today. <snip> Currently, 80% of all gun sales include a background check. Of the 20% that don't go through a background check, we believe about half are transfers between family members. Federal officials estimate that the remaining 10% of guns s...

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

Personally, I think the laws are backwards when it comes to OC and CC in general (not specific to Texas at the moment). Logically, we should be more comfortable with folks carrying openly, since they are willing to openly display the fact that they are armed. If we are going to restrict one or the ...

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

OC serves what purpose? I never open carry but sure was glad when it passed because have been times when no matter how hard I try my firearm would be exposed by wind or reaching for something was a time that was a violation stuff happens. I hope we don't forget how far Mr. Cotton along with NRA,&TS...
