Re: Holocaust Remembrance Day

I have never understood, especially on days like today, how any Jew could ever be anti-gun ownership. I grew up with people around us that had been prisoners in concentration camps. We were taught what Never Again means from a very young age (at least as young as 8 when I started Hebrew school), inc...

Re: Constitutional Carry Bill Filed

There are two flaws I see with the bill. I appreciate that they took churches out of the list of prohibited places, but they also made hospitals and amusement parks prohibited again without the need to have signs. Unless I missed something in my quick read through just now. I am also a little puzzle...

Re: impeachment this week or not

This whole thing is going to be one hell of a supreme court case, which Roberts will also need to recuse himself from. Impeachment is reserved for current officials and the Belknap case may or may not be guiding. In that case, the Senate voted that they retained jurisdiction to impeach former offici...

Re: impeachment this week or not

Maybe, but more immediately it’s to ensure that he cannot run again in 2024. If the impeachment ends in conviction, he cannot be president in the future. Their biggest fear is that people will be so disgusted by Biden/Harris's actions that voters will easily re-elect Trump in either the next cycle ...

Re: impeachment this week or not

I read a very interesting legal analysis that said the best action Trump could take would be to completely ignore it. He should not attend, not send lawyers, and not present any type of defense. Make it a one sided trial as if it were being done "in absentia". The next step is that he woul...

Re: Kittens need homes.

Hell! I live in Plano. There are coyote all over the place around here. They seem to thrive in our 'green belt" areas. These are areas they don't develop but use for jogging and walking trails. Several times a year we hear stories in my neighborhood about Coyote running up and grabbing small d...

Re: Do Not Attend Armed Rally at State Capitol

If anyone wants more reason to not attend this rally, I just got the following email from DPS (being a state employee, we get emergency notifications from DPS when they plan things like this): Based upon new threat information we received over the last 24 hours, we requested the leadership's permiss...

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1877/6123/products/treeoflibertytee_1024x.jpg?v=1569159256 I think that time is rapidly approaching, if not already here. I am not quite sure it is time to start shooting now, or if we need to wait for them to take the first act against us and be met with armed res...

Re: .41 Magnum

I fired one, years ago, back in my twenties. I know it was a S&W, but I don't know the model #. If I remember correctly I was told it belonged to a former police officer as a duty gun. San Antonio Police used to issue a .41 Magnum as the duty weapon. Unfortunately, by the time I joined, they ha...

Re: "New Posts" button

I think I see the problem. If I go into a forum through the forum menu, I can see the mark all posts read link. It does not stand out very well being in regular text near the date and time, but it is there. If I enter the thread by using the links to recent topics on the home page (top of the page b...
