It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

Filed under ‘W’ [who cares] as this forum’s advocacy is the open carry of handguns.

Of course eye95, might look at the last video from abc13 houston, https://abc13.com/5-shot-and-3-dead-after-home-invasion-in-east-houston/5097015/ while noticing HUGE number of little yellow markers placed by LE investigators.

Further, as stated in TX statutes here, https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/docs/PE/htm/PE.9.htm

Sec. 9.44. USE OF DEVICE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. The justification afforded by Sections 9.41 and 9.43 applies to the use of a device to protect land or tangible, movable property if:

(1) the device is not designed to cause, or known by the actor to create a substantial risk of causing, death or serious bodily injury;

So as previously stated, use of an AR LG seems a tad overkill [pun attended] to defend and kill three bad guys who apparently were also fleeing the scene!

Yepper “W” is the letter of the day!

Just think of what would have happened if certain people wanted the age to buy firearms to be 21? This man would be death rather than a few of the criminals.

eye95, You are welcome. I find the article fascinating on so many levels. Makes you think.
protias, That is exactly what is happening, denying a constitutional right to a portion of the people.
OC for ME, I did not know that because, I do not peruse the Indiana sub forum, thank you.

And now, Good Day.
