Blonde Horse Sense
A blonde buys two horses and she can't tell them apart. So she asks the farmer next door what to do. He says to cut one of their tails off. So she does. But then the other horse's tail gets caught in a bush and rips off. So she can't tell them apart again. She asks the farmer for advice a second time. He tells her to cut one of the horse's ears. So she does. But then the other horse gets its ear ripped in a barbed wire fence. She is still confused. She asks the farmer what to do. He tells her to measure them. She comes back and says, "The white horse is 2 inches taller than the black horse!"

Hi Doug and Troy,

Thank you again for your work in producing the God & Guns Podcast. The show is on my 'must listen' to list each week.

The last time we were in contact, I mentioned that I was building an online store to help finance my new gun hobby.

Doug, you had mentioned you had wanted to know when the site launched. The site launched today after 6 months of design & development work. But now the real work begins.

The feeling I have today is like I built a car for the Daytona 500 and now it’s the morning of race day. Will it go fast? Will it make it to the finish? It is a special feeling. Man I love starting this new venture.

Thanks again for your encouragement!

Troy thanks for the patch I love it.

I was listening to you describe  the recent questionable character that you sat behind in church. I couldn't help wondering why you wouldn't consider using a non lethal option such as gel pepper spray? I always have a non lethal option available.

Thanks for all you do for the cause of Christ and gun rights.

NRA Armed Citizen
Concealed Carrier Saves AutoZone Employees
At 9 p.m. on Friday, three armed robbers went into a Houston-area AutoZone store, where they held employees at gunpoint and demanded they empty the till. What the suspects didn’t see coming: a concealed carrier pulling into the parking lot.

When the good samaritan saw what was happening from the parking lot, he quickly drew his concealed carry gun, walked into the store and demanded the robbers drop to the ground. He then disarmed the robbers while Houston County Sheriff’s deputies were en route.

No shots were fired and no one was injured during the encounter.

All three men were arrested and will likely face felony charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Their fate will be decided in one of Harris County’s State District Courts.

The concealed carrier was released and will not be arrested for his actions.

Under current Texas law, concealed carry (LTC) permit holders are allowed to use their firearms to protect their lives and the lives of others.

While police appreciate this concealed carrier’s bold move, police do not recommend other concealed carriers to take such bold moves. According to police, things could have ended badly, resulting in a shootout or numerous people being hurt.

Currently, the Harris County Sheriff’s department is not releasing any more information on the three suspects.
