Re: Gun Buster Signs

Allow me to explain my logic please. It really makes the beauty of the 30.06/07 law more clear and something to be thankful for. I have been saying all along that the 30.06/30.07 sign in Texas is a blessing for us and we need not be bad mouthing it. Obviously, I agree. Criminal Trespass is a violat...

Re: So many unanswered questions.....

How can Meza be guilty of unlawful carrying a weapon that was in Rivera's purse? Judging from her being charged also, I am guessing that Rivera said it was Meza's gun and he put it in her purse in the store. She probably, like many women, put the purse in the shopping cart and he was actually pushi...

Re: Franklin Armory coming out with non-NFA 11.5” AR variant

Is there another way to carve the inside of a barrel that stabilizes bullets but is not technically/legally "rifling"? I never thought about it before, but I would bet a barrel that was not round and had no grooves to the spiraling could be argued as not rifled. Think a Glock octagonal ba...

Re: Warrantless Search of a motorcycle

Thatguyoverthere, Don't worry, I do my best to not take disagreements like this personally. I actually enjoy a discussion of both sides of an issue and can learn that way. As long as we don't degenerate into personal attacks, we are good to go. As for the issue of automobiles being mobile, it is fai...

Re: Warrantless Search of a motorcycle

I've been following this case waiting to see this one plays out. I think that a search warrant should have been obtained, but fully expect SCOTUS to uphold this verdict given the courts conservative nature and it's tendency to support law enforcement. I have been trying to get more information on t...

Re: LEOSA and TCOLE

I can see that, Excalibur. I was thinking of people using the TCOLE card as their ID, not as their proof of qualification. TCOLE does call it an ID card and I was just pointing out that it is not sufficient for an ID card and that you needed the agency ID card. Bryanmc, I was not saying TCOLE instru...

Re: LEOSA and TCOLE

Interesting that this has been revived. I found it in a search with keywords LEOSA and TCOLE. I had a firearms instructor (state le and chl) tell me that the only valid leosa qualification card in Texas was the one issued by TCOLE. LEOSA says that you have to qualify to state standards by someone q...

Re: New Year's eve arrest at Houston Hyatt

I don't understand why we keep referring to 30.06 in this case. They guy brought firearms into a hotel that had a no firearm policy. He was asked to leave and refused. Trespass. Not a conceal carry case. He had a rifle as well. Am I missing something? Let's assume he did not have a gun and was aske...

Re: New Year's eve arrest at Houston Hyatt

This is an interesting article discussing the rights and duties of hotels and their guests, but no mention of the criminal trespass issue: http://www.dentonlaw.com/newsarticles/texas-innkeepers-and-hotels-by-r-scott-alagood/ Thanks. That is an interesting article. It clears up certain points for me...

Re: New Year's eve arrest at Houston Hyatt

I think we may need to pay very close attention to this case. It may have a side effect we do not like. The man had rented a room from the hotel and was asked to leave. The police arrested him and did charge him with criminal trespass for refusing to leave. Think about this for a minute. Several tim...

Re: KS:Witchta man dies after fake "Swatting" call

I watched the video and I don't see everything in it that the news reports say was there. I do see some things that make no sense to me. I do not believe it is the whole video since it starts in the middle of the confrontation. First, from the news reports and police briefing released, the victim wa...

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

Gee, don't ya think the guy who made the kill shot should answer up? Tell his side of the story? I think he should, but I always advise everyone to not talk to the police. He has the right to not answer any questions in a criminal investigation, just like any other suspect. I am wondering if the de...

Re: Not your average dilemma

There is an outfit I have heard only good about, it's been a while but I believe they are called Dury's Guns. My understanding is they can sell the entire collection on consignment for the estate and maximize the profit. I'm not 100% sure that is who I recall hearing so much about, but I'm "ni...

Re: Gun Buster Signs

"Gun-buster" refers to the gun in a circle, the intl symbol for no guns. By itself, it has no legal status in Texas. "No guns", "no weapons", "no firearms", etc. are all non-conforming signs, and have no force of law in Texas, including with knives. I disagre...

I am not as expert on this as some of the instructors on the site but let me take a stab at some of this. I think you will get your renewed LTC in a few weeks.
