The media coverage was massive and all negative. It was the "blood in the streets," "genocide," "dead wives and kids" garbage. This is in large part why the small general "no guns" decals were popping up all over Texas like crabgrass and why Tex. Penal Code §30.06 was created in 1997.

Chas.
Perhaps it could be effective to play some of that fear mongering media coverage in future testimony?

Re: Through An Officer’s Eyes

I like your very approachable writing style Charles. Not a lot of legal mumbo jumbo, just practical reality.

And I agree with your conclusion...
Law enforcement officers and Concealed Handgun Licensees have gotten along great for almost twenty years and there is every reason to believe they will work well together, if open-carry passes.
Thanks!
