Re: Guns & Ammo's annual ranking of gun-friendly states

10. Texas Governor Greg Abbott probably set a record in 2019 when he signed 10 separate pro-­gun bills into law. One of the bills allows school employees to keep guns locked in their cars on campus parking lots. Texas is, as many would suspect, a pro-­gun state across the board. It gets high marks ...

Re: CO: Police blow up innocent man’s home to capture shop lifting suspect

I'm sorry, while the actions of police were over the top, police have NEVER been required to compensate people for damage incurred while doing their job unless the damage was done through gross negligence. This is exactly the kind of thing insurance is supposed to cover, and the city offered them e...

Re: USPS Lost my Replacement Card

This happens to me all the time. I have all bills delivered online, and most set-up for auto-pay, so I only check our mailbox about once a week, but over half the time, there is something in there for a different address. Usually I am checking because I am expecting something specific, and it is fre...

Re: CO: Police blow up innocent man’s home to capture shop lifting suspect

So by this logic, if someone steals from me, and runs into the police chief's home, I can blow it up trying to get my belongings back? Somehow I'm thinking that might not go over so well. I also found this part of the ruling particularly disturbing: The court acknowledged that this may seem “unfair,...

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

Everyone should have at least one 1911. There is just something about the platform that screams "perfection" to me. Also, don't believe the nay sayers. My 1911's have been every bit as reliable as any of my other guns, including my Glocks. And that's with a decent sample size of over 10 guns each th...

Re: Vehicle sale documentation question

Does she need to go with me to the tax office? Or do I just get her to sign the form and take them both there?

Vehicle sale documentation question

Warning - Dumb question follows. The recent Houston flooding managed to total my car, and I am looking for a replacement. I have a friend who is getting ready to trade in her 2017 BMW X5, and she will sell it to me for whatever they offer her, which I suspect will be too good to pass up. From past m...

Re: Who's going to trump rally?

I'll be interested to hear how many of you that said you were going actually got in. One of my friends said that she was too far back in line to have a chance. It is interesting to me that our President can turn these rallies out in city after city where the venue is full to over-flowing and there ...

Re: Road rage

Unfortunately, she works with schools, so having a gun in her car is not really an option a lot of the time. What is preventing her from having a firearm in her vehicle in a school parking lot? Is she licensed? She's convinced that she will get fired from her consulting position (contract not renew...

Re: Road rage

My wife had a guy pull a gun on her once. She was turning left and someone almost hit her. She honked. He turned around (had been going the opposite way at that point), and sped up to catch her at the next intersection, where he jumped out, ran to her window, and pointed a gun at her. She called the...

Re: AL: Clerk with own gun runs off armed robbers

Just the link under the video. I don't know that the clerk fired "blindly" but I don't believe he hit either of the robbers. Some folks don't understand how easy it is to miss when firing at someone with a handgun. Especially a moving target. Many times we hear of multiple shots being fired and onl...

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

There is a quote "to a hammer everything is a nail". I hope it is repeated over and over to the police cadets that everyone is not a bad guy. Protect and Serve. I am an armchair quarterback now, but if your are trying to sneak into the backyard so that when someone does announce "Police" at the fro...

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

I for one am more interested in the penalty for the Ft Worth police department. They are just as guilty as he is. This was a dad gummed wellness check! What the heck is with the way they approached the call? That easily could have been any one of us. I know I am not the only one who might have a gu...

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

I don't think it is overcharging. Apparently the suspect in this case refuses to cooperate with police, which is his right. But that also means there is no way to determine his motives for the killing. Based solely on the facts, and assuming the worst possible motive, murder seems like an appropria...
