    Man charged, found NOT guilty after refusing to give up rifle to police

    Disclaimers: The mission of OCDO revolves around handgun open carry. Now that Texas has some form of handgun open carry, albeit licensed for the time being, I think that being good stewards of our opportunity to open carry handguns, and expanding the recognition of our rights to include...

    Dallas police officer arrests guy for having body armor and green-tip ammo?

    Apparently: Cop said it's illegal to have body armor unless you are LEO or military. Cop said green-tip ammo is illegal. Cop said "federal law trumps state law." Cop said lawyers rarely know the law (implies cops usually do). Cop should not be cop. He is egregiously unqualified...

    Legislation wish list

    From the big, sweeping changes like constitutional carry, to the tiniest nuances like cleaning up administrative requirements for certain places to post ineffective signage, what's your legislative wish list for Texas? I'd like to see... Constitutional carry, of course; Carry for non-violent...

    Today a child pointed a toy gun at me

    Today I pulled into my apartment complex after running some errands, and I came to a stop sign. I wanted to turn right. About that time, a boy, who obviously saw me coming, walked right out into the road, so that I couldn't turn. Despite him being completely disrespectful and unsafe, I was...

    Survey the field

    Did pro-rights (gun rights) candidates win primaries in your elections? If you aren't already, it's about time to start gearing up to have as much influence on them as possible to vote positively for pro-gun rights legislation. Start finding out who we can count on, who we can't, and who needs...

    A little new found respect for Dan Patrick? On Meet the Press

    Dan Patrick went on Meet the Press to discuss the new OC laws. Wow. For not having a "perfect" stance on the issues, I was impressed with the fervor with which he defended both open carry and lowering the bar for being able to obtain and carry firearms for self defense. It is a Facebook...

    Why doesn't the anti-discrimination knife cut both ways?

    If it is justifiable to prohibit a business from selecting their customers based on certain criteria, why wouldn't it also be justifiable to prohibit customers from selecting the businesses they patronize based on those same criteria? The customer and business and just two sides to the same...

    Prosecutor jailed for wrongfully convicting a man

    I'm sure this comes to no surprise to any member here, but apparently prosecutors (or police officers) that engage in misconduct in trial are rarely ever punished, and are sometimes rewarded instead, even if the misconduct sends innocent people to jail. In this case, it seems as though just a...

    A day to pray

    I think that it would be appropriate for us today to take a moment of silence. To first pray for those that are still grieving on this day, and that will for the rest of their lives, that they may have peace and comfort and contentment. Pray for those that would still wish to do us more harm...
