Hijacked a mail truck and were shooting at people on I-20. Time for the AR to start living in the truck again. Luckily we were on the other side of town when all this started going down but police are everywhere right now. And all the stores in town are on lock down.

I bet all the stores are hoping there are a few law abiding gun owners in there with them

Judging from the video posted just above i could not tell if the trooper was getting shot up or the trooper was doing the shooting up.

Reports he was in his mid 30’s. Not necessarily young. Also, not two shooters. Just one. He hijacked a mail truck. They caught him and filled him with bullets...

First let me preface this by saying my son plays football at UTPB and was locked down inside the training room for several hours while this was going on. He nor any of his teammates or friends were hurt.

I once had a liberal tell me that my stance on gun control would change if I ever had somebody effected by gun violence. I am more certain now that this will not change my mind. During this whole ordeal I kept wishing I could get a gun in his hands. I do not want myself or any of my people to be defenseless in a situation like this. He does not have a gun he has they are not allowed on campus. Being respectful of the law does not protect you. This jack monkey took numerous innocent lives, many defenseless. We are a weaker society without law abiding citizens having guns.

This is something I wrote down a while ago...seems to be more and more correct...at least in my mind.

Toxic masculinity: what is it? It’s the newest buzzword for the liberal media. Why is it important? When we begin to demascluinize and turn men into the media driven villain, it starts a whole chain reaction.

Want to know the common theme in many of these mass shootings? Broken homes. An absent father. Now, absent by choice or victim of circumstance you say? Doesn’t matter...ABSENT. Young men need a male role model. A larger-than-life masculine figure...a DAD!

The MSM has done alarming disservice to men by displaying them as chauvinistic, uncouth, unrefined and boorish creatures who are nothing more than a sperm source. Now, I can certainly agree that not all men are created as equal, if you will. Being a father is much different than being a biological embryo fertilizer...it’s providing structure, stability, guidance and most importantly, unconditional love for your child. A son needs his fathers unconditional love...it’s his safe space, his refuge. Mothers play maybe the most important role in a child’s life, I won’t deny that...but, young men need a father.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6
Our people are lost for lack of knowledge and the wisdom of our Creator.
Yesterday at a college football game while tailgating ,these guys were playing the most vulgar music I have ever heard across from us, extremely loud. I told my wife that a guy use to be able to go over there and tell them to turn that crap off but nowadays a man will be attacked for speaking out and correcting others children. Can't even tell the truth on this forum w/o getting attacked some days. Sad.

There are a lot of wrongs in the world right now.
Somehow we need to find the way to start righting them. It's our responsibility as citizens not to just ***** about the problems but to push our legislators to do the right thing.
Trouble is determining what is the right thing . . .

There is no way any" right thing " legislation is possible because the tinfoil instantly comes out of the pantry. The only right thing that could possibly work is church and family...unfortunately the family unit is just about gone because god has been ignored.

I’m a huge proponent of outdoor ed in school.
Teach responsibility
Teach respect for all living things...including human life
Teach SAFETY...including firearm safety. (We fear that which we do not understand).

Look at NASP...archery is the #2 safest sport you can participate in...why? Safety is continually taught and reinforced, and you’ve got kids 2’ apart on a line with weapons. Teach safety.

I believe this would take a generation to fix but it’s taken a couple to get to this point.

If we ever got unified in this and pushed our schools to teach safety and conservation (like with the Outdoor Adventures program through OTF), we could turn this whole mess around.

Just saw an update on fox. Putting the shootiers name out there glorifying him as a martyr of some sort would be exactly what the shooter wants. And the press would then direct all their attention on him. Our focus right now needs to be with the victims, their families and the folks of Midland/Odessa. The shooter is a coward POS. And that's all we need to know.

Not the media. These are my thoughts. But watched the update on fox to see if they would mention his name. And they did not. But I'm not naive I know it will soon come out and he'll get all the glory he wanted.

I'm in Odessa, and I shut down my shop early and kept the night shift home yesterday. the mail truck was hijack 6 blocks from my home and happened on the same street that several of our friends live on.
Something we have found very odd here has been the total lack of information, both during and after the incident. In other shootings it's been like they can't get info out fast enough, even if it's wrong. In this case it's been mostly just crickets.

So let's just call names, ignore the fact that these mass shootings are an epidemic and close our eyes and ears to any discussion about how to help control the issue.
Despite dumb asses like Beto it's not about banning guns. But it is about making sure we make getting them out of the hands of the mentally I'll who will use them to do damage to innocent citizens a priority.
Until we honestly fix the mental health side of our healthcare system we don't even have a foundation to start.

Funny. I don't remember loving or respecting my dad for the beatings me and my siblings got.
Corporal punishment has it's place but it doesn't correct all things. And it should be only one of many tools a parent uses to guide and grow a child.
First parents have to actually know what and who their child is involved with before they can know what tolls to use.

I wish they got as excited about unborn babies being killed at a rate 30X as high.

Something we have found very odd here has been the total lack of information, both during and after the incident. In other shootings it's been like they can't get info out fast enough, even if it's wrong. In this case it's been mostly just crickets.
Makes you think, doesn’t it? What’s weird, do they ever really report on the trials and conviction of these shooters? Rarely.....

Corporal punishment has it's place but it doesn't correct all things. And it should be only one of many tools a parent uses to guide and grow a child.
First parents have to actually know what and who their child is involved with before they can know what tolls to use.

You’re correct. There’s a difference between being disciplined and being beaten. If you were beaten, your dad should have been arrested.
