    Just got a call on the home phone from a guy I've known the better part of 20 years. He's a lawyer who used to work with John O'Quinn. And was the ex-chairman of the Texas Democratic Committee. We don't always see eye to eye.

    I posted a pretty heated reply on Facebook about our new gun range CENTER INFO. He represented the people who live in the area who don't like the idea of a new gun range opening up one little bit.

    I don't think he's happy with me right now.

    y'all don't know half of the story.

    pfft - he's the same guy who I got into a "discussion" about the lady who dropped the hot McDonald's coffee in her crotch. I'm all like "duh, spill hot coffee on yourself, what do you expect" He's all "Their liable." What really got me though is that he was talking to the city council about a guy in the country side who got shot by an idiot neighbor's friend. Well, that was my wife's uncle who got shot. Idiot with a new gun to him, trying to sight it in a .308 with a new scope didn't shoot into a berm, shot it up literally, where my wife's uncle lived. Her uncle started the company where I've worked for 26 years - one of the smartest, ingenious guys I've ever known and have been an honor to work for.

    Miracle shot. Went over 1600 yards + 38 foot rise and hit my boss/relative in the back when he was sitting at his dining room table. Bullet went through trees, glass etc. He was life flighted out and said it felt like somebody hit him in the back with a sledgehammer. Missed his pacemaker by inches. He survived, barely, sued the guy who shot him (with the same lawyer.)

    What I said, and I stand by it, if someone sighting in a rifle with a new scope, should eliminate all possibilities of a round going in an unsafe trajectory. The owner of the new range put up ~30 foot tall berms. At a distance of 25-50 yards, a vagrant projectile is impossible - unless you are a total idiot and should be sued. GAAH - Where's my blood pressure medicine?

    He smells blood in the water..... That's too bad.

    Most likely he just wants to make some $$ off of the people who will complain about the range there.

    He is a lawyer, what did you expect? He feeds his family by suing the person with the most money. That is a reasonable view for someone n his profession. As has been said a thousand times, we have a legal system, not a justice system.
