Books about Gun Control

I consider myself pretty educated on history and gun control, but can I get some suggestions for books about gun control and it's progression to tyranny in history? I want to be able to debate the consequences of gun control and have as many facts (not just statistics) on my side. I currently am sta...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

Charles, I have copied and pasted this message, unedited, onto my facebook business page (LTC/Firearms training), and given citation that it is from published from texasfirearmscoalition.com. Is that acceptable?

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

This ruling has huge implications once said and done. If carrying anywhere that a field trip is taking place, you can become an automatic felon without even knowing you are breaking the law. Ridiculous. Hope this goes all the way up the chain, even since the OAG is definitely not on our side.

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

So under the law now, for a teacher to carry in a school, they just need their LTC and permission from the school/district right? The school safety program is just an additional certification they can get if they or the school wanted or required them to have it, right?

Re: Carry at the Houston Marathon

I would have carried, but I had only ran around 5-6 miles carrying my pistol, didn't want to try anything I hadn't done before.

Ran the full, a little over 4 hours. Last 8 miles got me (first half was 1:55).

Carry at the Houston Marathon

I find it funny that the Houston marathon tries to ban carry at the event (I'm running tomorrow). http://www.chevronhoustonmarathon.com/race-weekend/safety-security-info/ They don't give notice per 30.06/07 on their site, but even if they did, would not be valid on public property. And yes, while it...

Re: The perfect "truck gun"

Built a 10.5" AR pistol as cheap as I could. Sits in a tennis racket case under the back seat in case my Glock isn't enough. Shoots all the same ammo my duty rifle does. Heck, these days, you could build an AR pistol in 9mm pretty cheap too (back then those were expensive) and have it shoot glock ma...

Re: The perfect "truck gun"

I just figured I'd let everybody know what I decided to go for (in case anybody cares! :) ). I really appreciated everybody's ideas and feedback. I was really much interested in mainly .300 BLK in a short rifle, preferably suppressed, since obviously I won't be able to grab for hearing protection i...

Re: Carry by Bar Employee

Giving a class the other day, and someone said they worked in a bar and asked if they could carry there once they got their license. Now in 46.15: (b) Section 46.02 (carry is prohibited in all places other than your premises, or car/boat under your control) does not apply to a person who: (7) holds...

Re: Cannot Be Recovered By Any Other Means

Not a clarifying point regarding the law but seems relevant... My LTC instructor made the point that even with the law on your side you could easily be looking at $10-15K (or more) in legal fees if you shoot someone (maybe not, but not an unlikely possibility). And so if you assume that cost, it’s ...
