On a serious note...Has anything changed/added as far as what they consider to be an "invalid" license??? Definition of??? If you submit a CR-70 or 71 to change your name, address, classification (NSA to SA) etc. once you get the new license, return the now-invalid one. They don't want you to have ...

point

An interesting point, of course, is that schools can already prohibit students and employees from bringing a firearm onto campus, including parking areas, simply by writing policies to that end. Conversely, any school that wanted to could write a policy permitting concealed carry, etc, on premises. ...

Picky, picky, picky.

Letting a child have access to an unloaded firearm is not against Texas criminal law. But you're way out on a limb as far as civil law is concerned.

Vague is sometimes good

The vagueness of the travelling exemption was one of the better arguments on our side while trying to pass CHL. Regardless of the definition we get, you still have to prove that you're meeting it. That gets much more difficult if you get caught in Austin or Houston. My advice for travelers is get a ...

Proposed legislation

HB 362, by Talton, would require that anyone accepting a driver's license as ID must accept a Texas CHL for the same purpose.

What we really need...

What we really need, of course, is national reciprocity and a uniform set of concealed carry rules. I remember when I first started driving the rules in each state were different. I.e. some states allowed right turn on red, some didn't; the traffic control signs were different; etc. Then Congress ca...

It helps if you can send complete information including photos of the signs, who you've talked to, etc.

Speedloader is just too bulky. Bianchi's SpeedStrip is an alternative. It's a flat strip of rubber with holes that hold th...
