Re: Extrajudicial Killing

I think we agree more than you think. I was saying that I think assassination is not ethical. I did not specify which side it was unethical for. I agree that we cannot complain about people doing to us what we do to them. I have always hated the hypocrisy of politicians who complain when the other ...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

The Texas Rangers should be brought in to investigate. Agreed. With that many police shot and 2 homeowners dead, along with inconsistency's in the story from HPD, an independent investigation would be appropriate. Based on Acevedo's comments, the HPD clearly can not be objective here, and even Acev...

It must have been a Colt because a SIG 220 would handle the pressure just fine.

Re: Extrajudicial Killing

On the other hand, I'm not so opposed to assassination as an instrument of foreign policy, the same as waging war. If it's moral to kill front line troops, then it's moral to kill military commanders. It's more effective to target and kill a military commander than the troops he commands. It's also...

Re: Extrajudicial Killing

To address the killings more directly, I will point out that assassination has long been used as a tool by various governments. It has also been long used by our government, even though its public acknowledgement is more recent. In a lot of cases, the assassination has been disguised by a kangaroo ...

Re: Concealed handgun license holder killed

Incidents like these are why I don't ever intend to hold anybody at gunpoint.

Re: HB 349 - Make bump stocks illegal in Texas

A SCOTUS case from the Roosevelt era upheld a conviction of a farmer for growing wheat to feed his family and violating federal wage and price control laws. The Court held that the Commerce Clause was triggered even though the farmer's wheat had not traveled in interstate commerce. Had he not grown...

Re: CA: Rep suggests forceful confiscation with nukes

Light talk of war, from either side, is pretty scary stuff. While some are willing to put themselves at risk, but those that we love as well. Perhaps. But I believe that Rep. Swalwell represents the darkest side of the Democratic party. I wish that's true but after the midterm elections, Stalwell i...

Re: HB 349 - Make bump stocks illegal in Texas

Let me ask you this. If Texas were to pass a law like you support, would you then make a suppressor, SBR or machine gun? (I said "make" because no one will sell you one without complying with federal law.) Of course I would make it myself. That way there's no commerce, and Congress has no Constitut...

Re: Parker County Deputy Shot in Foot

I just can't see this incident as anything but a holster failure, that is associated with the type of weapon being carried. Unless the holster failed mechanically by falling apart, a holster failure that allows access to the trigger is ultimately human error by the person who chose to carry that pa...

Re: Require All Prohibited Places to Post

Tsk, tsk, tsk, oohrah.

Don't you know some people want to cling to the fantasy that Texas is one of the most pro gun states when, in reality, we're somewhere in the middle of the pack among shall issue states. How dare you dash their illusions with facts about gun laws in other states.
