Re: HB195 v. HB??/SB??: Are storm clouds gathering?

As I've said, something tells me two more open-carry bills are going to be filed; one in the House and one in the Senate. Like licensed open-carry bills already filed, these also will be licensed open-carry. Rep. Stickland has filed HB195 that would remove the requirement to obtain a CHL to carry o...

Re: Open Carry Bills 2015

Now, put yourself in the LEOs ' shoes: you're out alone at night with 3 armed subjects who are acting squirrelly ... would YOU feel safe if you were required to let them each keep their guns until you developed enough info to basically arrest them? Or would you prefer to temporarily disarm them whi...

Re: Breaking Bad cast to return - with Walt

We recently fired Verizon FiOS TV and got Apple TV devices instead and an Apple Airport router. Our lives have improved, and in the process, we have been watching a lot of Netflix and Hulu stuff that we couldn't stream before because the old Verizon router is about as robust as a brick of compacted...

Re: CHL holder "outed" by "concerned parent "

Maybe getting off topic, but do y'all really care that people know that you carry? It doesn't bother me in the least. Anyone that knows me knows I'm carrying any time it's legal to do so. Do I go around waiving my CHL (or gun) in the air? No. Do I wear a CHL badge and tiara? No. I have used my CHL ...

Dallas intruder killed after victim pulls gun from couch

There was probably illegal activity involved, but I find it amazing that the media referred to the resident who shot the intruder as the victim. So out of character :thumbs2: http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Dallas-intruder-killed-after-victim-pulls-gun-from-couch-256889031.html" onclick="window.open(...

Re: College Instructor Teaches Wrong Course

Per the Tarrant County College Human Resources page minimum requirements for adjunct professors is a Masters Degree and 18 hours graduate study in the discipline being taught. It just seems some of the comments were condescending toward community colleges. Kind of like Kimber owners discussing a Ta...

Re: College Instructor Teaches Wrong Course

My first point was, I remember how hard it was when a class was taught by a GTA, and the GTA spoke English as a second language. If that is the case, no wonder they did bad. However, if your really a straight A student, introduction to chemistry and general chemistry should not be that different. C...

Re: 2014 Primary Polling shows Cornyn may be on the ropes

I believe Cornyn would win a solid majority in a closed Republican primary, but there are races on the ballot like the District 92 legislature race where a dyed in the wool Liberal is encouraging Democrats and Teachers Union members to cross over and vote for him to defeat the conservative incumbent...

I know there will be mixed feelings on this and who should win the Republican nomination.
