Re: FWPD Sgt Doesn't know LTC law

I was going to post this to their FB page, but decided to not do so in such a public way. I e-mailed their training department. I agree this was a good call. But the Sgt did make a public statement. I also emailed the reporter about the factual error. She emailed back that she would contact the off...

FWPD Sgt Doesn't know LTC law

This was a pretty good apparently non-baised article about red flag laws and alerting police about MWAG https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2019/08/11/can-texas-cops-gun-legal-troubled-owner-raise-alarm-red-flag-law-el-paso-walmat-mass-shooting However, then I read this "But if someone's in a liqu...

Re: TX: Houston CHL sentenced to 20 years for murdering attorney over dispute over handicapped parking spot

I wish that LEO's would pull through every lot they pass and cite those abusing handi spots... after a month or so, no one would do it anymore and both sides of this problem would go away. Haha - I got challenged by a LEO for parking in a HC spot, wanted to know where my hang tag was. Didn't bother...

Re: TX: Houston CHL sentenced to 20 years for murdering attorney over dispute over handicapped parking spot

Be careful shaming people for "looking able bodied". Looks can be deceiving. Prime example is someone with a serious heart condition. They can't walk very far without being winded or extremely tired. They look just fine but they are not. Chemo patients are the same way. I am sure others can think o...

Re: Do you have anything on you or in your truck?

I also forgot to mention that I was stopped just a few weeks ago for an illegal passing (I didn't but that's another story). I was carrying and did not show my LTC with my DL. I got a warning, the LEO never mentioned my LTC and never asked about a gun. Surely he ran my DL and would have e seen I had...

Re: Do you have anything on you or in your truck?

I know there is no longer a penalty. When I showed my LTC to a LEO during an accident investigation he said I was no longer required to do that. Said the open carry law changed that.

I agree it's best to not let the officer have an surprises.

Help Finding Night Pig Hunt

Went on one hunt three years ago, but didn't make the arrangements. Now I'd like to find a place within 100 miles or so of Waco. Appreciate any suggestions, before I try googling.

You are no longer required to show a LEO your LTC if you are carrying, unless specifically asked.

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

Just in case anyone is unclear.... If your current DL is not Real ID compliant, you have to wait until you are inside of 2 years before expiration to renew. My DL expires in mid 2022. I cannot renew until mid 2020. See FAQ question #6 here: https://www.dps.texas.gov/DriverLicense/federalRealIdAct.h...

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

I've been reading the horror stories about wait times at DPS, and I saw the Lieber article. I don't have a RealID and my DL renews this year, so I tried the "get in line online" DPS webpage this morning. I was given a "serve time" and told to show up 10 minutes early (at Waco DPS). I checked in 20 m...

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

I don't know Malaysian security requirements, but in US carriers, a pilot is not allowed to leave the flight deck until a flight attendant (or other crew) comes in to watch the door. Then when that pilot returns, the flight attendant verifies who it is and lets them in. The other pilot is not allowe...

Re: Short trip ideas

The Strand in Galveston is wheelchair friendly.

Arkansas National Wildlife Refuge has a circuit drive (don't have to get out of the car) and IIRC, the viewing spots were wheelchair accessible.

Re: IL: PIGS FLY IN CHICAGO!

I've carried concealed legally in the Chicago area, never encountered a place where I couldn't carry. Of course I never had cause to use public transportation or go into govt building's, schools, etc. And I never saw a private business posted. True, IL has more restrictions than Texas, but they have...
