Re: CA: Perp takes handgun away from Deputy, she runs away

The article said the bad guy was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. I counted around 16 shots fired. Maybe those deputies need some range time too. I have never been shot at up close and personal like that so I might just mess myself and spray bullets in all directions.

Re: "We may have to shoot down this airplane"

Read it to the end when the fighter pilots were told they would have to ram the airliner because they were not carrying weapons. They both willingly took off with every expectation of doing just that.

"We may have to shoot down this airplane"

This is an article that popped up on my FB page. It really brings home what transpired on 9-11. I was flying that day as an MD-88 Captain with Delta. I was enroute to DFW and ATC never told us what was happening. We knew something was going on by the radio transmissions from ATC but we thought there...

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

When will people learn that if someone is in a position of power or wealth they can't be trusted. Think about all the people you know who are wealthy. They will never sacrifice wealth for freedom. They have to much to lose. Do you think someone with money is gonna stand shoulder to shoulder with yo...

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

Many gun ranges "rent out" guns to prospective buyers and people who do not own a gun but enjoy shooting. I guess these people will now require a background check ($) prior to renting.

I was number 78 juror out of 125 in the panel for the Capital case. I was not asked one question and I never raised my hand or responded to ...

Joe Straus Letter in the Dallas News

For some reason I got this email from Joe Straus: "Lionel Gutierrez was just driving his family to the movies in El Paso. But he's also a police officer who was off duty at the time of the terror attack of August 3, so when a stranger approached his car and told him what had happened, Gutierrez gave...

NRA Hammered on Fox

Steve Hilton on the "Revolution" just did a scathing report on Wayne LaPierre. It was all about his big home, travel expenses and clothing expenses. The left will surely jump on this.

New Boating Law

Really off topic but I just read starting September 1st, if your boat is <26' and has a kill switch , you MUST have that lanyard attached to your body and the switch must work. $200 fine. I am sure the Constables on Lake Conroe will be watching.
