It is stage 4, and has spread to the liver, lymph nodes, and lung. Severe shortness of breath, anemia, and pain means...

Re: Palin, Lubbock, and a Gun ban?

Makes me wonder if the stated reasons are bogus, and the real reason was Secret Service related. Maybe she is considered a candidate for national office, and we just haven't been informed yet.
My explanation is much more eloquent than saying the DA is a dummy (remember no abreviations).

Re: Would anybody support a NCIC check for buying ammo?

Another aspect to remember is that huge volumes of ammo are sold via mail order and over the internet. That would get shut down by an NICS requirement. For those of you would might think even for a millisecond, "when I don't buy over the internet" , the competition that arises from a national marke...

Re: Would anybody support a NCIC check for buying ammo?

I see plenty wrong with it. Some folks buy ammo by the case and shoot it hundreds of rounds at a time. Just cause it's fun. We don't need to go on a terrorist watch list because of it. Exactly. Someone who participates in IDPA or other action sports can easily go through several hundred rounds per ...

Re: Teacher on guns "wanted to make them horrified"

Some of those kids showed very solid common sense. It's a shame this teacher is on a jihad to browbeat that out of them.

Re: Class Video

No complete videos, only clips here. I think doing the complete video would be a violation of copyright laws being that your charging for the class that your showing them in. DPS was handing out the list as part of the "package" at school. Somehow, I don't think they would encourage the practice, i...

Re: Austin man stops burglary, shoots tires, catches one sus

Clue the rest of us in - what is Fox 5.3? TIA SIA I should buy stock. :) It's heavy duty pepper spray, with 5.3 milliion Scoville units of heat, plus a a UV dye that glows under a blacklight. Something vision intensive like driving, would be nearly impossible. http://foxlabs.com/pepperspray.shtml" ...
