Re: Double-Action Only Semi-Automatic Pistol

Smith & Wesson made some of their pistols in DAO. This link attempts to help sort our their model numbers.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/majority-house-members-now-back-some-type-impeachment-action-against-n1058596 Majority of house members support impeachment. I’m just not sure if they know what high crime he committed. Must be something bad. Was he selling guns to Mexican drug dealers?

Re: Moral Dilemma

I wouldn't get law enforcement involved either. I would consider taking pictures of them to document their condition, and maybe going back to the vet for a once-over. That will provide you third party documentation of their condition when they showed up at your place.

Re: Fort Worth father warned police his son might buy a gun for mass shooting

Attempt to get help for a deeply disturbed member of my family instead of allowing them to murder innocent people and be killed by police? Yes, I can see myself doing that if I couldn't find a better option for them.

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

Here is most of an email I received from Dan Patrick today. <snip> Currently, 80% of all gun sales include a background check. Of the 20% that don't go through a background check, we believe about half are transfers between family members. Federal officials estimate that the remaining 10% of guns s...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Robert's history of criminal behavior means that I, personally, will not be selling any firearms to him. If he can pass a background check, then that serves as additional evidence that they are ineffective.

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

Pretty worked up about it, isn't he? I buy a lot of tools and equipment, used, from people I don't know. If I choose to purchase them through a used equipment dealer, then that offers me some amount of protection in case the item later turns out to have been stolen at any point in its past. I pay fo...

Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

I am against "universal background checks". Even if they worked perfectly, which they don't, they won't prevent these acts of violence. Perpetrators will simply switch from one tool to another. If states want to do something to keep prohibited people from owning firearms, then add a box to the stat...

Re: Texas Lt Gov calls for end to private gun sales?

A loophole is a legal way to avoid a law. If a firearm is sold to a prohibited person through a private sale in Texas, both the buyer and the seller have broken the law. I believe Abbott made an incorrect statement concerning this too. https://www.apnews.com/f0c1ce26cf104ba897ac205c9d5b91a1 “Right n...

Re: Gun Safe help - and perhaps more

Good news! Based on the information shared here which I passed on, the widow was able to find the key and get into the safe. The immediate need to access the important papers has been satisfied. Thank you. I don't know yet if I'll be involved with the gun collection. I don't think that she is ready...
