Re: Negligent entrustment of a firearm: TX courts haven't ruled.

There are 3 reported cases in the last 40 years according to the article. This doesn't seem to be a burning legal question in Texas. Of course it would only take one case to make it a real issue.

Re: Dallas Under-Funding Police to the Point Where Life-Threatening Calls Go Unanswered

A friend of mine is a Dallas City police officer. According to him, the staffing levels are so low that detectives only have 30 minutes to handle any case. They can't hardly start in that time. He is very frustrated.

Re: FTF selling question

I have generally done transactions in a public parking lot usually a big box store or a restaurant. Some police departments offer space to do transactions. I believe Carrollton PD does this for example.

Re: CHL Badge holder charged in murder at church

Lousy situation. The deceased started this by disrupting a church service. The shooter should have handled this a lot differently. He should have approached the deceased and asked him to calm down or leave. If that doesn't work, you call 911 and get 3 or 4 brothers, ushers, Deacons elders, whatever ...

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

Republicans in Texas better wake up and figure out how to get Hispanic votes and suburban votes. In my area which historically has been strongly Republican, I now have a Democrat state senator and a Democrat state rep who doesn't even live in the district. And my Congressman, Marchant, just barely w...

Re: ‘But, Kavanaugh!’ NeverTrump’s Awakening

I almost didn't vote for Trump because I didn't believe he really was a conservative, he absolutely slandered all of his Republican opponents with the most evil and nasty language, he is a liar and he is/was a womanizer. I also didn't agree with his views on trade or on Afganistan and Iraq. I did vo...

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

Something I don't understand is when a politician actually does in office what he promised to do in his campaign and then people get upset with him for doing what he said he would do. This is happening to Cruz and Trump. While I don't think either are terribly likable people, they both have kept the...

Re: New online CHL application & procedures

My son is going to a private Christian college in Arkansas so there is no issue of instate versus out of state tuition. It just costs every student a ridiculous amount of money!

It is a good issue to remember though. Thanks.

Re: Just My Thoughts

I don't think this is a 1st Amendment issue. It is however fraud and breach of contract issue. If I were to sue them that is the approach I would take.

Re: OK: Oklahoma restaurant shooter had license as armed guard; attack stopped by 2 armed men

Brave man but he should have shot the shooter when he first had the chance rather than motioning him to put his gun down. That just about got him shot.

Re: New online CHL application & procedures

Thanks.

We have been able to get on the site but when we try to go to the application, we can't get to the application. Guess he will have to just keep trying. Thanks again.

Re: New online CHL application & procedures

My son is applying for a LTC and has a couple of questions. We can't get into the DPS site to fill out an application. Is the site down? Second, he is going to college in Arkansas but his residency is still at home in Texas. Which address should he use for his mailing address - his home address or h...

Re: Paul Manafort Trial

You do know that all of us would be found guilty of something if a prosecutor like Mueller took a fine toothed investigatory comb to our lives, probably things that we didn't even know were illegal. I have always thought that Manafort was a sleasebag, but he was only investigated because of his rela...
