Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

If I remember correctly, the MPA took two tries. The first attempt retained the "Defense to prosecution" language. The Harris county DA at the time declared that nothing had changed and that he wold continue to prosecute persons charged with having a handgun in their vehicle. The second ro...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Unless the law says "It is a defense to prosecution" to have a LTC, it is not a defense to prosecution to have a LTC. The law prohibiting carry does not apply to a person with a CHL. No defense to prosecution is needed. No amount of mental gymnastics will alter that fact. If you were arres...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

The original SB 60 passed in 1995 did say that a CHL was a defense to prosecution. The law was changed in later legislatures. The difference is significant. One can be arrested and charged for an offense in spite of the law providing a defense. One cannot be arrested for an offense that does not app...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Defense to prosecution IS exact language in TPC, such as is used in 46.02: ]It is a defense to prosecution under Subsections (a)(1)-(4) that the actor possessed a firearm while in the actual discharge of his official duties as a member of the armed forces or national guard or a guard employed by a p...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Where is TPC does it say that a LTC is a defense to prosecution?

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

A lot of people who were traveling while carrying a handgun got arrested, despite having a defense to prosecution. I think that the attitude of a blue county DA towards civilians versus police has to be taken into consideration.

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Also, just to be clear. A TXSG member is no longer affected by 30.06 or 30.07 at all, on duty or not? I don't think this is necessarily true. HB 435 provides a defense to prosecution to members of the TXSG for TPC 30.06 while in uniform and 30.06/30.07 while off duty. I think you can still be cited...

Re: Marine La Pen My Favorite French Candidate!

I was passing through the Paris (France, not Texas) today and saw a t-shirt that said "Protect Paris". Below the text was a picture of an AK47.

Maybe he meant to protect from an AK47 or maybe he meant with an AK47. If it is the latter, at least one person has come to his senses.

Re: Your gun is gonna just GO OFF!

Whenever someone tells me that guns are evil, I ask them "Why do we allow police officers to carry evil things?".

I am profoundly disappointed that no UT student stepped forward to use a dildo to stop the carnage.

I would hope that by 1977, science had advanced to the point that it can tell the difference between cooling and warming.

Re: I am looking for a skilled reloader

Melting and casting silver is several orders of magnitude more difficult than lean. Lead melting point: 621.5°F Silver melting point: 1,763°F While lead can be melted in an electric pot, silver is going to require a furnace. I doubt normal lead-casting molds would work well (or at least very long) ...
