Re: Houston we got a problem... Live Rd jammed

I would make sure the bolt carrier was removed from the upper, then use a dowel rod from the muzzle to knock the round out of the chamber. No danger to it if there is nothing for the primer to hit.

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

If the internal investigation and officer statement is not admissible in court for criminal purposes, and would be used for violations of policy; what would be the issue in having the external agency investigate potential violation of the law? I support that part of the law. I was just pointing out...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I believe that a bill should be introduced, in the legislature, that mandates, that no law enforcement agency, in Texas, can do it's own internal affairs investigation, in any officer involved shooting, or death of a person in custody ... Jusme, I understand where you are coming from, but I don't t...

Re: AZ: Nanny state sends in SWAT

People seem to be overlooking where the mother said the child temperature came down shortly after going to the doctor and she called the doctor to let her know. This one wasn't in the stories I read and it does make a difference. It is part of why I said there must be more to the story. From the fi...

Re: AZ: Nanny state sends in SWAT

On the second question, I would say that parents are the ones tasked with safeguarding the physical and spiritual well being of the child. But, as a Locke disciple, I'd also say that governments are formed among men in order to safeguard the rights of the people. Children have the right to life, so...

Re: TX: How to dispose of your bump stops in Houston

Well, isn't "public safety" for "use" by the public? Supposedly the public at large, taken as an entity, are the ones benefiting from both stopping the manufacturing of those stocks and the taking away of those stocks from those who legally purchased those items in good faith. The government should...

Re: TX: How to dispose of your bump stops in Houston

Didn’t the ATF originally write an opinion for these saying they are legal. How can they then come backna couple of years later after millions are sold and ban them? Yes, they did, but there is no rule or law saying the government cannot change their mind on an interpretation of the law. This happe...

Re: TX: How to dispose of your bump stops in Houston

The goverment cannot force you to destroy your own property without due compensation. Yes, they can. And I am answering in a legal fashion, not as some others have posted about realistic based on might. This is one of the greatest misunderstandings of the law. Most people think the Fifth Amendment ...

Is there any data to see how many have been turned in? I'm guessing single digit percentages.
Two were turned in Austin, just to enable the owner to file a federal lawsuit over the ban. He waited until he had been harmed by the law.

Re: Gunmaker Remington can be sued over marketing of rifle used in Sandy Hook shooting, court rules

I think the more accurate relation would be, could a family sue Annheiser Busch, Jim Beam, or Jose Quervo because a family member was killed in a drunk driving crash. How about Ford, GM or BMW because they all create cars that travel fast enough to kill a person (speed is at least advertised). I th...

Re: SB 2146: School Carry

SB 2146 was filed on March 8 by Bob Hall. If I am reading the bill correctly, it would allow LTC holders to carry on all school campuses. Just a minor technical correction, but not ALL school campuses. Public schools and charter schools only. Private schools could do what they wanted. This matches ...

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

(Sadly) my money is on Kamila, Beto and Bernie winding up as the three main players at the end, with Beto edging out the other two a few months into the primaries. I disagree on Kamila Harris making it that far. I also think Bernie will end up being the nominee. Bernie supporters will not change fr...

Re: A somewhat unique situation.

I am in the Austin area, so the bus line is Cap Metro. I was being intentionally vague, but I guess that's not much help. I also work for the state, which brings up something that kind of torques me off. We won the lawsuit where you can now carry in the capital building (not where I work), but yet ...

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

I have lost track of how many accidents I worked. I am a firm believer that, overall, seat belts save lives. Yes, there is a chance that it could kill you, but that is so rare that I wear a seat belt in a car every time and make sure everyone in my car does too.
