Treat us like the LEO's on this one point. Jacket flaps open, BRIEFLY,
no big deal.

Yeah, you are walking around Wal Mart or Home Depot with the side of the jacket tucked behind the holster, hang 'em.

But when getting into/out of a vehicle, come on.

But it cost him about $15,000 to fight something that should not have happened in the first place.

That was what the original "flashing/printing" remark was refering to.

I assume that by "flashing" or "printing", you refer to section 42.01a(8), Disorderly Conduct, which refers to "displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm." As long as you don't deliberately uncover your handgun, it's hard to see how that would be interpreted to apply by a reasonable person.

Someone else earlier refered to hospitals and churchs - the current law is pretty clear that in both cases you must be given effective notice.
My opinions only.
1. Open carry. Not opposed. Don't think it's very smart. B/G does threat assesment. Sees you carrying. You WILL be first person capped w/o warning when HE decides to "open the dance".

2. "Flashing". City of Watuaga vs. Mark Michael. Jacket raised briefly while exiting vehicle @ convinience store.

3. Renewal - every 2 years. $25.00. Done at DL office. Troopers are already there. Thumbprint. Mine hasn't changed in 42 years. You already have it. Twice. (Original & first renewal)

4. Code/restricition on DL. I already have an "A" on my DL. (Corrective lenses) I think motorcycles have an MC. Make it an F, G, H, or W.
I've never had a store clerk ask what the "A" meant. They are too busy/underpaid to care, other than your name matches the ckeck you are writing.

5. Lose your DL privileges, but not CHL, hole punch a certain area on the DL. Same with CHL vs. DL. Holepunch the CHL area/restriction.

More as I think about it. :)
