When an officer and his department get sued for false arrest, they'll be more diligent in their department training!
Such settlements need to be paid by wage garnishment. I have a feeling that would learn people real fast. It's easy to be blase about such things until it's your money on the line.

This was a pretty good apparently non-baised article about red flag laws and alerting police about MWAG

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2 ... s-shooting

However, then I read this "But if someone's in a liquor store with a handgun on his hip, that is illegal, Daniels said. “A liquor store is a prohibited place for a license to carry holder,” he said."

This is of course absolutely false. A liquor store must post the TABC Blue sign for unlicensed possession, but the owner can decide whether to post 30.06/30.07 or not. The Sgt. may be confusing the 51% Red sign. However, it is disturbing that he does not know the law.
Most police only have a vague knowledge of the law. Part of this is that they have to cover such a broad section of law. So there is no way for them to have a good grasp of all of them. I agree it is troubling since they are the ones that arrest people for violating laws. Short of hiring criminal law attorneys for police I don't know how to get around it.
