Re: "Answer, but don’t open your door" - Hsoi

Here is my take, based on a totally different real life event. I walk my dog in the evenings. I started walking her in a local park, right about dusk because that is when it is the most comfortable. I have my usual belt and pockets full of things - pistol, spare mag, pepper spray, knife and small fl...

Re: Mere possession of firearm not probable cause for arrest--even in Illinois

But will the roadmap matter? I ask in the context of many Texas governmental entities pushing the boundaries of not being able to post 30.06 signs. Those who are opposed to guns don't seem to be governed by the laws like the rest of us. Illinois itself defied the Federal government several times in ...

Re: What Would You Do To Help

This is another case were a location has been usurped by those with no good reason to be there. The video says that the entrance is left open for movie theater access but I'd be willing to be that, on any given night, there are many there with no intention of going to see a movie. So it is an accide...

Re: NJ: Death in gun free New Jersey

Gang related. Suspect should have still been in prison. Convicted felon with a gun released early from prison. Looks like the Governor of NJ is part of the problem. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/06/18/nj-governor-sees-guns-not-shooters-early-prison-release-as-problem.html :iagree: Parole for...

Re: NJ: Death in gun free New Jersey

About 8-10 years ago we had a stop every year in New Jersey. To me the whole area we were in seemed compressed and over crowded. It was right on the border with New York and Pennsylvania. We have the luxury in Texas of spreading out a bit. I always carried concealed, even there but was well aware t...

Re: 2nd Amendment Question

Thanks for the comments! Always interesting to see different views. I'm assuming that the majority of gun owners have accepted (not happily I know)the current restrictions on 2A as lawful. I am curious, what's the line? If u don't want to answer. I understand. Mine would be gun registration. Not go...

Re: California Farmer Arrested for Trying to Comply

I know that some aren't but I'm a fan of Ayn Rand. Her character in Atlas Shrugged said it best. "We're after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the powe...

Re: TX: Mesquite Officer boxes with local teen

Police officers working directly with citizens should go a long way toward dispelling the "Us and them" myth.

Re: School teacher quiz

The point about teachers not made in this thread yet is that there are MANY of them that have LTCs and carry when not in schools. In my discussions with those so vehemently opposed to teachers carrying , I pointed out that the teachers already carry and often randomly see their students at local ret...

Didn’t something similar happen at at Whataburger in Lewisville about a year or so ago?
I don't remember any Whataburger incident there. There was a officer in a more casual uniform kicked out of a Grapevine Wafflehouse a couple of years back for OC.

Re: Nutcase teacher threatens to murder people at concert

I guess no one on this forum is a law-abiding citizen according to her parents. LOL, Perhaps the comment meant “We are law abiding citizens (and) we don’t (even) own (any) guns.” In other words they were saying that in addition to being law abiding, they don’t happen to own any. Not so much saying ...

Re: MN: CCL holder defends against knife after multi-car accident

From the article, there is a statement that the CCL was NOT involved in the wreck. That is interesting. We've debated getting involved as a 3rd party where you may not understand all of the facts. Of course the trump card was the knife welder ran at the CCL after being told to stop. A live Tueller d...

Re: School teacher quiz

The majority probably do... the good news is that only we only need a minority of the minority to actually carry to have a substantial and effective force. 10% would be great. As for teaching them, I've seen some scary timid people go through the police academy and come out officers. And I've seen ...

Re: NJ: Are you required to give police your name?

This is NJ. NJ does have citizens, it has subjects. Resisting an officer there, for any reason, is a bad choice. We'll see how this one goes.
