We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Simple question, I think. From what I know of the law, a lawsuit against the State under 42 USC 1983 can be rendered moot if the State changes the law or whatever situation is being challenged, so that the Plaintiff's original complaint no longer applies. Basically, the Plaintiffs only have...

149 more and we'll have a nice round 25,000 supporters of open carry legislation. Of course, let's not stop there; 50,000 or 100,000 would be amazing and would really get the legislature's attention.
The following is a comment I posted to John Lott's blog entry on open carry. He's still not keen on the idea as some know, so I thought I'd use a little logic that everyone can get behind. It's a long comment and John doesn't have to approve it (or even read it), so I'm putting it...
I did not by any means do much research on this; this is just some thinking on paper. Feel free to comment as desired.
After thinking about the

Just thought I'd throw this out. Be careful what you say or show to the ether that is the Internet; it has come back to bite some people in court.
This is especially important for people on these types of forums, who may someday be forced...
This forum has a lot of good information in it regarding laws, and what it doesn't have can generally be found with a quick trip to Google. However, there is one VERY important and inconvenient truth that I do not think is mentioned often enough.
Regardless of any laws...
First of all, I keep erroring out when I search the forums for Taurus 24/7, so don't accuse me of not having searched :P.
I'm in the market for an inexpensive (<$600, preferably <$450), concealable .45ACP for general carry (Remember Texans can't OC yet). I've been kind of...
The other question on this thread, whether you carry with safety on or off, is misleading. I carry safety off because I carry a decocked TDA, so the only difference between that and a cocked unsafetied pistol is I'm pulling a 10-lb trigger. And of course, safeties are the...
This is a letter I sent to the president of the organization regarding a quote by one of their spokemen being spread through the media (Emphasis is mine for this post and was not included in the e-mail):
:DThink that last statement will raise some hackles? I'm very politely...
... would it be possible/easy to create a map of concealed-carry issue policies by state? All I can find is the progression of the adoption of issue policies; however, states like Hawaii have CC laws but are effectively no-issue states. I thinkit might behelpful to those here, as...
This is a "what if" question for those who like to play lawyer during their free time. Feel free to speculate but please back it up.
Let's say that SCOTUS rules for Heller as is widely anticipated, and in the process overturns one or more of the laws in question. As with Lawrence...
I read the SCOTUS oral arguments, and the main thrust of arguments involving the first half of the Amendment focused on the militia as a civilian military force, and such force was necessary to the security of a free State. DC posited one argument, in fact, that such a force runs...
There was a discussion on handgunforum.net about the merits of alternating ammo. I thought that particular way of doing things was just OCD and potentially dangerous, however it did make me think that there may be some situations in which a magazine of mixed, if not alternated...
Doug Started an interesting thread about the limits of N-dimensional shapes asa proof that compromise cannot exist in complex relationships like society.
However, he's got the wrong branch of math. N-dimensional shapes are a theoretical construct where first thedefining points...

This is a situation in which more guns would probably have made the situation worse, not better. Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt.
