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.
Had a conversation with a Bulverde LEO working security at a package store who stated emphatically LTC holders open or concealed were strictly prohibited from entering a liquors store. I politely pointed out the sign verbiage on the front door stating unlicensed carry was illegal, but it fell on deaf and ignorant ears. As one of the most important pieces of legislation in the last 30+ years and given there are so many LTC's it should be incumbent on ALL LEO's and their departments to make sure they know the law. A police officer pleading ignorance as an excuse in NO excuse, IMHO.

Re: FWPD Sgt Doesn't know LTC law

I understand that most LEO's don't know ALL the law. They are not lawyers, or judges. But dang it! The legality of handguns should be law enforcement training 101.
