    anybody with any knowledge of arachnids and insects knows they cannot be that large. Both have relatively inefficient respiratory and circulatory systems, couldn’t survive at that size.

    It wasn’t Obama, it wasn’t Reid, or any other current occupant of DC. This has been “law” since GCA ’68 was passed during LBJ’s administration. Poor law then, still a poor law. Repeal it.

    Both Ruger and S&W, plus some others, have produced revolvers in 9×19.

    Wimberly doesn’t have anything but a bunch of whiney ass yuppies and burned out hippies from the 60s and 70s anyway.

    The meaning of “regulate” has changed over the years. The “well regulated” militia mentioned in the Second Amendment refers to “well drilled”, meaning familiarity with their weapons, and drill, NOT “regulated” in the meaning of today, having rules and regulations without number heaped upon them.

    Georgia has pretty reasonable concealed carry laws. I hope the couple learned a lesson…painful, but not as bad as it could have been.

    CNN ran with a story with no verification and no other angles/opinions? I’m shocked, absolutely shocked, I tell you!

    Headshots are fine when you are in the movies or shooting at paper. Real world, center of mass. Greater margin of error, and if someone is shooting at you, there WILL be error.

    ANY spectator sport is boring. American football, baseball, basketball, and soccer. I like to ride bicycles, but watching the Tour de France is torture. If you are playing it, it is a sport. If you are sitting on your arse watching it, you are just a fat tub of lard, living vicariously through someone else.

    SAPD has very few cowboy types, despite being in South Texas. There was some paraphnalia found, but he wasn’t a dealer or distributer, according to other local sources. Jury did right.

    Really liked IKEA’s statement, saying the policy didn’t apply to LEOS and the “loss prevention officer” was wrong thinking it did, Basically, IKEA is either (1) lying, or (2) admitting they hire extremely stupid people.
    Any business that says such a thing is a short termer. Would you give your money to people like that?

    As noted Asian Tiger Mosquitos have been here in Texas for thirty years. Big deal, no major issues from them. Bring back DDT and other chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides? Why? Banning them DID cause problems at the time (Rachel Carson, the left’s and greenies heroine) is directly responsible for millions of deaths throughout the world, due to insect vectored disease and starvation from insect cased crop failures. But today? There are far better pesticides available. The problem with the ban was they were just “dumped”, with no viable replacements in the research pipeline.

    Off body carry has its problems. My wife carries in a pocket rig I designed and made for her. Others seem to like it, I’ve sold several.

    This is a news story? Some sissy whimp is afraid of insects? Pretty pathetic.

    With a background in entomology, and over thirty years dealing with pest management, all I can say is “what a bunch of wusses”. Enormous swarm? Give me a break! Not a time of year when much honeybee swarming takes place, but it happens. As long as the queen is with them they will be pretty docile, aggressive behavior takes place when the workers are defending the colony. The southern yellow jacket (and northern as well) do not display that type of behavior. They will also be MUCH more aggressive/protective of their nesting site than any honeybee species, including Africanized bees. despite the warnings issued for the last 30 years about how Africanized honeybees are going to take over North America, it ain’t gonna happen. The genetics just aren’t there, way too many European honeybees. If you don’t think the European HBs don’t get aggressive, you haven’t seen what happens when enough attack/defense pheromone is released. As for the “mysterious” cause of the decline in numbers, it isn’t a mystery, just mainstream media doesn’t cover it much, and people don’t pay attention when it is mentioned. CCD (colony collapse disorder) seems to be caused by a parasitic mite that invades the breathing spiracles along the insect’s abdomen. Most beekeepers I know will not collect wild colonies because of the risk of introducing the mites into their existing population.

    Erica…you might want to actually KNOW something about the subject you are covering…he doesn’t have guns “legally registered” to him. Might be different if you are from NY and some of the other fascist states, but in the free states, there is no such thing.

    Dan Joseph is no more knowledgeable than those students. He said Benghazi is in “the middle east”. IT IS IN NORTH AFRICA!. The pot is calling the kettle black…

    Yep, I remember that as well. Don’t forget Pre-K for Mojados/Mojadas, either. Mommy was bigtime La Raza Unida, too.

    I’d love to see him in a cabinet position! He won’t accomplish anything , and it gets his **** out of San Antonio and Texas. He and his brother are both socialists at best. Good thing there are more and more conservative Latinos/Hispanics throwing off their Grandparent’s and Parent’s Democratic chains.

    Correct. As an entomologist, I agree completely.
