Re: Are Ham radios becoming like guns in CA?

From my years as a Firefighter I know that in times of an area wide disaster the ham radio operaters have proven invaluable communicating information when telephone lines are down and other forms of communication are out! In the event of the need to once again fight for freedom, the ham radios woul...

With the traffic at this moment, projected travel time is 1h 13 minutes because if I-35W. Take your time and be safe, Manny's doesn't lock the do...

Re: Things Done That Isn’t Always Reported.

Over the years when people have learned what I did in law enforcement, they often asked how I could have endured seeing all that violence, addiction, evil and death. I've told them while there certainly was plenty of that, I considered myself blessed to have seen much more love, compassion, self-sac...

Re: FL:Jewelry Store robbery, UPS truck jacking, police chase, shoot out, 4 dead

Too many law enforcement officers think they are in military combat. I regularly see a group of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies eating lunch in camouflage uniforms - why the heck do LEO’s need camo, especially in a large metropolitan area? Too much of a military mindset. I know they have a tough, ...

Re: Americans Own 423M guns

The 8.1 billion round figure is also misleading.

That''s the number of rounds manufactured last year, and doesn't count stored rounds, which of course are impossible to count. There's a whole lot more ammo out there, and a lot more guns as well.

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

We had a great breakfast with 8 1/2 attendees (one under a year old), even though a couple of regulars couldn't make it. Great food, great conversations and lots of fun.

Re: Police Officers should not draw their guns on a suspect with a knife

A few months ago we had a suspect shot and killed by a Deputy, after the deputy was stabbed. Suspect was from Georgia IIRC. Different situations require different responses. If the answer to the question of whether there is any option other than deadly force for protecting innocent life in a given ...
