Re: UCW & Gang members Follow the "I dont know what I dont know" ball

Why just make it illegal carry under MPA if you're in a 'illegal street gang'? Why not make it illegal to be in a gang? Then we could arrest them all. Maybe it should be illegal for them to assemble or speak to one another... :confused5

Re: UCW & Gang members Follow the "I dont know what I dont know" ball

There is no prohibition on getting an LTC or carrying under LTC while being a member of a criminal street gang. Unless you have been convicted of a crime or fail other criteria to get a LTC, you may get one. If Banditos are a criminal street gang, then they may not carry under MPA. The solution for ...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

All you Hams should join your local RACES/ARES. They gave me a very nice FEMA "Emergency Communications" ID card and I enjoy doing the volunteer work. Met some good folks. "Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service" http://www.usraces.org/ "Amateur Radio Emergency Service"...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Now, having said all that in the previous post, I think it's still a pretty low bar to clear the VESP hurdle. You could check with your county's Emergency Services Coordinator (or whatever the equivalent is) and see what kinds of things they need help with. I don't think you would necessarily have ...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

... the State would have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you are NOT an emergency services volunteer. No, I don't think so, at least as I understand defenses to prosecution. I think the State only has to prove the elements of the offense , i.e. defendant was given proper notice, was in a ...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

It says "any individual who, as a volunteer," not "any member of a volunteer organization" so I don't think any individual is required to join anything, carry a membership card, or have any special training or certification beyond their LTC to qualify. If we help others during e...

Re: UCW in a 51% location

I jave an update. I'll try to sum it up: Let me just say that the defendant was carrying under permission of the lodge president, (Can that even be a defense under the 51% law?), In the performance of his duties as Seargent at arms. The verba altercation that lead to the police being called was in ...

Re: another 30.06 question

And let's get another myth out of the way, an oral notice to an off duty cop that he may not enter because he is carrying is not enforceable. Really? Does that mean that when they are told they cannot stay because the business doesn't allow firearms and the officer leaves that they are only doing s...

Re: another 30.06 question

What about the classes that the State doesn't let you exclude? Off duty cops, emergency volunteers, special investigators, your employees carrying in your parking lot, etc.... :rules: My understanding is you can exclude them, police don't have to follow The Sign, is that incorrect? Isn't that what ...

Re: another 30.06 question

Everybody seems to say that private property rights are so sacred in Texas, but then we have exceptions to 30.06 for cops, emergency volunteers, employees in the parking lot, etc. And let's get another myth out of the way, an oral notice to an off duty cop that he may not enter because he is carryin...

Re: another 30.06 question

I don't see 30.06 as a sacred property right but rather a public accommodation issue. Anyone who opens their property to the public must agree to not discriminate against various classes, which in my opinion should include legal carriers. Along with that, property owners who don't post should be sh...

Re: another 30.06 question

This isn't true. 30.06/7 has no bearing on off-duty police officers, even if they have a LTC. And that needs to be corrected. An off duty police officer (yes, its a job) has to follow the same rules as every citizen out there. There are no "special accommodations". Now, do other police of...

Re: another 30.06 question

A Defense to Prosecution is the same thing that you have for carrying ANYWHERE under the authority of LTC, or while being a cop, or any of the other 46.15 exceptions, they are by appellate level case law only DEFENSES to prosecution. So the same thing with VESP and 30.06... Are you the "test c...

Re: another 30.06 question

Twomillenium, I apologize for not being more clear, and for my ignorance. The law states that you have committed Criminal Trespass if you carry past a correctly worded/posted sign. I understand that you have to charged and agree to pay the $200 fine before you become a convicted criminal. I was arg...

Re: mossberg shockwave

Thanks for the response. I don't have a LTC, so carrying concealed is not an option. I understand carrying (a pistol) in a vehicle, it has be concealed. If carrying as a shotgun it does not have to be concealed. I also, understand that I can legally conceal a pistol in a vehicle. The difference is ...
