Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

You can 'see' what you expect to see. Who hasn't walked to the wrong car in a parking lot, got off on the wrong floor, went to the wrong door, kissed the wrong girl, etc., etc., etc., :lol:. We're all human and capable of error. However, a man is dead who should not be and it is her fault. Her gun,...

Re: TX: Dallas man goes back to bed after shooting burglar.

And the charges might have to do with something else mentioned in the comments. After the shooting, the man cleaned up his brass and threw them out. That is destruction of evidence and would tend to make the police think he had done something wrong or not told them the truth. There are lots of old s...

Re: Question

Yes but you can carry under castle law only even though you have a LTC. This is the other part that is bothersome. You cannot carry under the castle doctrine in Texas. This is a philosophy and written into the law as the ability to defend yourself in your own home. It has been extended to defending...

Re: Harris County Deputy killed in the line of duty

This shows a major problem with our parole system. He had an active warrant for his arrest for violating parole for more than two years. Why had he not been arrested? Why had the parole officer not notified anyone when he stopped checking in? This is why most major departments have fugitive task for...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Can you be found not guilty of murder and escape manslaughter? Overcharged? No, manslaughter is a lesser included offense of murder. The two relevant sections of the Code of Criminal Procedure are: Art. 37.08. CONVICTION OF LESSER INCLUDED OFFENSE. In a prosecution for an offense with lesser includ...

Re: ATF Admits It Lacked Authority to Issue Legislative Rule

Interesting stuff. So I wonder where this is all headed legally. Will bump stocks be legalized again? I never really wanted one before. I think I am gonna load up on them this time. I doubt it, mostly. I have a lot of faith in appellate courts though, so maybe. I tried to follow through and read mo...

Re: Killeen Newspaper Poll

Answers as of right now: 22.9% 1. Yes. They would help to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. 16.7% 2. Yes. It’s an imperfect measure, but something must be done to curb gun deaths. 29.2% 3. No. The checks would be both costly and ineffective in curbing illegal access to gu...

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

OC serves what purpose? It serves the purpose of allowing me to leave my vest off for a few minutes while making a quick trip. I always carry OWB on my right hip due to too many years of experience reaching there for my firearm. For work and school, where I am not allowed to OC, I wear a vest to co...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission rules require establishments selling alcohol for "off premises" consumption display a sign stating that unlicensed carrying of a weapon is a felony. Since Texas does not license the carrying of long guns, rifles are prohibited. Obviously, the carrying of rifles i...

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I beg to differ. I do not think she is the dumbest person to hold office. With people thinking we have been to Mars and that too many people could tip an island over, I don't think she is the stupidest. I will stipulate she is definitely in the running though. And as I typed this, I noticed that all...

Re: TX:Judge orders man to pay 96k in divorce settlement even though she was married to two other men

Here is another story. Apparently this woman has a criminal history. She probably had a better attorney than Athans. However, according to Athans, his son began to research Parchem and learned she had a criminal history. “Some things just didn’t add up,” Athans said. “He went and did a background c...

Re: Not The Whole Book-But Should Be Enough

Question though: I cannot find a Penal Code citation for "aggravated" theft. There's levels of misdemeanor and felony theft based on the value of what was stolen, but I don't find the word "aggravated' in PC Chapter 31 Theft. What was stolen was a purse containing $300.00 dollars and an ID. What ma...
