Re: 2019 Firearms Related Bills That Made it to Governor Abbott

Hmmm.... As I understand it, it doesn't matter whether there's a sign or not; if you receive verbal or written notice, you have to leave, period. Still, can an LEO walk up and ask if you're carrying a weapon, based solely on noticing a slight bulge under your shirt? Seems like that would be illegal ...

Terrorist movie

Sometimes we visualize certain situations and try to devise ways we would deal with them in real life, as a concealed carrier. One of those imaginary scenarios is a sudden terrorist attack. I just recently watched a movie (we live 2 blocks from a theater) that made it strikingly real. The terrorist ...

Re: South Africa: Violent farm murders

Yep. I don't mean this as a racist comment, but once the natives run off the white landowners (who brought the country into the 20th century), SA is doomed to decay, just like what they did to other African countries - Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Sudan, Nigeria, Congo, Somalia, etc. I've had several very cl...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

While shrieks of alarm at $40,000 Beverly Hills shopping orgies blare throughout the media, rest assured that if the lawsuit reveals information that completely exonerates LaPierre of any wrongdoing, you won't hear a peep about it.

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

To accuse Charles of thug tactics like you are shows you are not fully aware of the work that man has done for gun rights. In the last ten years he has achieved more for advancing second amendment issues than many people will achieve in the same field over a lifetime. Of course. But I think what he...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

Of course the liberal media is pouncing on all of this. They smell blood. But to the undiscerning public eye, it does all look suspicious. Wayne's $39,000 shopping trip in Beverly Hills, trips to places like Bahamas, Italy, Hungary, Istanbul, etc., luxury hotel stays, $19,000 for a car and driver, e...

Re: "Nobody has ever stopped a mass-shooter..."

Honestly, I think we're sort of digging in the semantic woodwork here. IMHO, it would come down to the difference between "prevent" and "stop." The examples use "stop" to mean "prevent," but those are two different concepts. "Stop" means to stop something that's already moving. So a shooter is killi...

Re: Property taxes

The real evil is the agricultural exemption. I pay more property tax on my little plot in a suburban neighborhood than many pay for their hundreds of acres that produce little/nothing. But those folks who own vast tracts of land have bought enough legislative influence that the ag exemption will ne...

Re: Texas House backs open display of handguns in cars

So this means I can remove my handgun while still in my shoulder or belt holster from my person and place it in plain sight (front seat of the car) right? It sounds like if I remove my handgun from my shoulder or belt holster while sitting in the car and place it in another holster and while doing ...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

In the meantime I’ll be working with the tried-and-true gun rights organizations to see if we might be able to actually strengthen the rights for those of us who are responsible gun owners. OK. So what gun rights organizations are you working with? What are you doing with them? What rights are you ...
