Re: Property taxes

If I were king I could fix this problem onernight. Government says your property is worth X. You say it is worth Y. Government either changes your property value to Y or buys it from you for Y. Of course if I were king I would probably want all of your money and not do a darn thing about lowering yo...

Re: Gen 1 Glock 27 Value

Are you sure this is a Gen 1 Glock 27? To my knowledge the only Gen 1 Glocks produced were Glock 17s and a very few Glock 19s. A Gen 1 Glock has the "speckled" finish all the way around the grip with no checkering front or back and no finger grooves. To my knowledge Glock 27s start at Gen 2.5 with ...

Re: School activity involving homeschoolers

Maybe I'm just missing it in the text of the penal code, but I do not see the words "certified" or "accredited" used to qualify a school. It simply says: "School" means a private or public elementary or secondary school. Only place I found it defined was 46.11 If Leeper v Arlington ISD did define h...

Re: School activity involving homeschoolers

I am a home school parent. Home schools in Texas are viewed as non-certified private schools. Your child does not receive a high school diploma from the state of Texas upon graduation. I don’t see how these gatherings could possibly be viewed as a school sponsored activity when Co-ops are little mor...

Re: Hunt ISD teachers can now carry

Curious if any of these institutions have adopted a blanket policy of allowing all licensed staff to carry and how many require almost impossible hurdles to get “approval”.

Re: Unicorn pistol

I have the G19, G26, and the G43. About all I ever carry these days is the G43. Very slim and comfortable and easy to carry extra mags.

Re: Require All Prohibited Places to Post

I would oppose any legislation that made these signs more commonplace. IMHO it would result in signs going up in non-restricted areas.

Re: A test for Anti-concealed carry

A suggestion: If someone tells you they are against concealed carry because the carrier doesn’t have enough training and therefore creates a hazardous situation, ask them to take this test: You are in a store with your two kids and a BG enters and starts shooting at people indiscriminately, walking...

Re: CC at a high school tennis court?

This got me wondering: CC is legal on the grounds. But at what point do you lose the “carry” part of CC? If my weapon is in a bag across the court from me am I still actually carrying? It’s my understanding I can either CC on the grounds or lock the weapon concealed in my car. Not sure about the leg...

Re: Residential coyotes

One of the facilities guys at a local highschool was on a gator picking up trash around the football field after a Friday night game. Started playing cat and mouse with a coyote. Cameras caught everything. Coyote chased him around the entire field.

Re: Would You Favor Special Privilege?

Here is a link to AR’s law if anyone is interested. http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2017/2017R/Bills/HB1249.pdf If I’m reading this correctly, a sign that can be read from a distance of “10 feet” stating that firearms are not allowed would prevent a license holder from entering armed.

Re: I have been to my last gun show!

I went to DMH today and was also surprised by the number of empty tables. I also noticed that only the main room was open, the smaller room which usually has a good number of tables was closed. Prices were all over the place but there were deals to be found if you looked. I found a new name brand co...
