Re: Hidalgo, Tx police chief negligently shoots himself.

Even Glocks can in theory fire when dropped. It takes a failure of some internal parts but it can happen.

Re: A bit of a protest in Irving, Tx

G.A. Heath Much of what you posted sounds reasonable, but this statement doesn't make sense to me. "I would however like to know how many people at that Mosque are now more likely to be radicalized because of the intimidation efforts of this crowd." Isn't this the same kind of thinking liberals are...

Re: /dash-cam-video-shows-how-simple-traffic-stop-quickly-escalated-when-driver-informed-officer-of-concealed-carry-perm

Where does it say they let him go? They also didn't apologize, they basically just said "hey we like guns and that guy is gone so please forget about this." All that really says to me is they have crappy PR people. I don't know if this has been posted, but here is an excerpt from the Rosenberg Poli...

Re: /dash-cam-video-shows-how-simple-traffic-stop-quickly-escalated-when-driver-informed-officer-of-concealed-carry-perm

Please do not allow an isolated incident or the actions of one Officer to tarnish the image of the entire Agency. yet... The police spokesman said the events were investigated and were "within policy." Feels like they are trying to play both sides of the fence here... He obviously violated policy a...

...If accurate it is of course unconscionable but you also have a guy who was slow to stop, tried to turn a stop into some kind of discussion, purposely or not answered questions about his gun in a manner that could be considered evasive, and that's just in the news report and highly edited video t...

Re: Recent encounter with LEO

If they're not wanted, and the car isn't stolen, let em' know a light isn't working, and let em' go. That would be a definition of a fishing stop, and unlawful. You can't be pulled over randomly or without having committed an offense. If a 3rd light out is probable cause, I screwed. Mine is out on ...

Re: /dash-cam-video-shows-how-simple-traffic-stop-quickly-escalated-when-driver-informed-officer-of-concealed-carry-perm

Yep, and a response with guns drawn was the appropriate answer. You are asserting a position that I don't hold, didn't state and is not even a logical progression from my statements. Trying to assert control is isn't illegal or immoral when kept to a reasonable level, but it can draw responses from...

Asking why he was being pulled over is escalating the situation from a minor traffic stop to an arrest? I believe in being polite, but if we're judging videos here, I've seen plenty where people were down right rude and irate to the officer and they get a ticket and a "have a nice day" from the off...

Give them your LTC. Basing your decision making based on a single incident is bad enough but in this case you have one edited video and the opinion of one side of the incident. If accurate it is of course unconscionable but you also have a guy who was slow to pull over, tried to turn a stop into som...

Re: TN: 67 year old woman CHL approached by strange man in Walmart parking lot

That is not what I said. arguing that the lady may have pointed her gun at the woman and child because she might have thought they were in danger. The comment was may that the lady pointed her gun at the man a second time when he was near the other lady and child. I said that lady MAY have thought ...
