A&M President Michael Young speaks to University House Staff Council on Tuesday: "A staff member in the audience raised his concerns on the implementation of campus carry legislation and asked what is being done to avoid an adversarial climate on campus. Starting in fall 2016, students 21 years or o...

Re: Pushing the envelope on Campus Carry?

Let us take care not to assume that the regents at UT are of the same calibre as those at A&M.

Re: Schools and 30.06 signs in the parking lot - Actually enforceable?

And THAT is why I studied physics and not law. You guys amaze me. Interesting, George. That raises a point which I have also found to be interesting, if trivial in the context of this thread.

Re: Dem pushing law to make sellers criminally liable for buyers' actions

Re: Dem pushing law to make sellers criminally liable for buyers' actions

The stupidity of some never cease to amaze me. Given some of the idiot higher ups in the GOP at this time, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if this were to somehow become law. However, I seriously doubt it would ever hold up in court. This sounds eerily similar to those that would like to see a bus...

Re: Another example of why body cams are needed.

Be sure you look at the sign on the rear of the stopped vehicle. I would say that Officer Wheeler "came and took it." Such a sign invites a stop and search of the vehicle, probable cause or reasonable suspicion notwithstanding. These can usually be manufactured after the fact. Jim A "Come and Take ...
