I suggest open carrying in there...if you're willing to risk "the ride". The rid should be short since you're already at the Sheriff's office. :evil2:

Perhaps it is just me, but I don't high expectations of getting a fair trial on a gun issue in Harris County......or Travis County. The presence of the sign in the first place tells me their regard for the law.

Presumably they could only charge you with a class C 30.07. And it's clear law that it doesn't apply on government property. My guess would be interfering with a police officer, or disorderly conduct. Those are nice vague catch all crimes that equate to "LEO thinks you're annoying".

Just like "failure to maintain assured clear distance" is the catch all for "you were involved in an automobile accident and we think you should pay, regardless of whose fault it is."

Too bad I don't see DPS or Sheriff's Deputies pulling over those who either didn't learn or have forgotten the meaning of the words "Following Distance".
I "REALLY LOVE" those who ride my bumper at less than 50 feet when they should be over 200 feet back. Or the Idiots who cut in front at highway speeds at LESS than 20 feet from my front bumper. It has been down as low as under 5 feet.

Excuse my rant, I just seriously dislike other drivers putting my life in danger when they are careless with their own.

As to HCSO, to the HC Sheriff, Either obey the law or go to jail. I would love to see him in the HCSO jail. Or pay the fines out of his own pocket.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Guess who gets cited for "failure to maintain assured clear distance" in this case if there is an accident? Not the person who was rear-ended...
