No. It's tragic.
It's both a tragedy and a travesty that "it's much easier to just become a reserve LEO and then 06/07 signs won't apply to you" than to get a LTC or carry a folding rifle. It's both a tragedy and a travesty that it's the LTC whose right to bear arms is infringed by [censored] who break their oath to defend the constitution.
"become[ing] a reserve LEO" is also beyond the ability of those of us who are either too old to be accepted, or too infirm to become a reserve LEO. Frankly, it was an idiotic and thoughtless response.... but some people speak without giving much thought to the effect of their words. Personally, I'm done discussing it with him. If he really wants to be a THAT guy, he's not going to listen to reason.
I assure you all that becoming a Texas LEO (reserve or otherwise) is significantly more difficult than getting a Texas LTC or carrying a folded concealed rifle. For my part, in the event of 30.06 sign I would consider carrying a concealed sub-machinegun , which is not a handgun under Texas law. I am quite accurate in semi using a select fire MAC10/9 with a barrel extension or silencer, and it is quite concealable, though very heavy.
