Re: What were your political leanings at 18 years old?

I was 15 when Ronald Reagan ran for President in 1980. Since I couldn't vote I volunteered on his campaign in Killeen making phone calls and and miscellaneous other tasks. So when 18 I was already very conservative. I think a lot of that had to do with family, but also I read a lot for debate tourna...

Re: The Master Gun Control Plan

I have often wondered if part of the master gun control plan by the left is to allow the criminal use of guns to escalate so as to help manufacture a tipping point of crisis. Taking the "never let a crisis go to waste" to an all new level. Why aren't liberal cities and states aggressively prosecutin...

Re: Not The Whole Book-But Should Be Enough

Reminds me of a murder case I was on over 20 years ago. We had one juror though not a SJW, was a young college student that was an emotional wreck. I was the jury foreman and had to walk through each of the possible charges starting backwards. She agreed that it wasn't involuntary or voluntary mansl...

Re: Ever looked down a gun barrel held in an angry hand?

It was around 1988 or 1989, I had just returned to Dallas in the middle of the night and was washing my friend's truck I had borrowed. I saw two guys walking towards me. I should have listened to my instincts and left, but I didn't. I was robbed of my money ($20.00) at gun point with a revolver and ...

Re: Questionable Search on Live PD.

I don't have a problem with officer's asking for consent to search if no RAS/PC exists. However, I would have a problem if an officer assumes guilt because consent is not given. I realize they may call for K9, and watching LivePD I've seen a lot of times where K9 does indicate drugs as well as many ...

Re: Are we de facto in more danger from Republicans than Democrats in regard to 2nd Amendment?

I'm becoming cynical as I get older, but I think both parties are using voting blocks (gun rights vs gun ban in this case) for fund raising and election purposes and could care less about really supporting the issue. It's about the campaign money and the votes. If the GOP actually voted like they ca...

Re: SC: Bodycam of LEO shooting homeowner through front door.

I want to be fair to the officer but if he lied about the door opening that is problematic. But based only on video and statements in the article, If I was sitting on a grand jury I don't believe I would indict the officer on criminal charges. Especially as we can't see if the victim pointed his wea...

This was good. I knew about the fake army for Patton prior to D-Day to mislead the Germans. Didn't realize how much more they did.
