What is the advantage of getting a Utah license if you already have a TX CHL? I know there is reciprocity with a couple more states, but is there any other advantage.

Shows that walls don't necessarily stop bullets very well either. You need to know it behind the wall before you point a gun at it.

I thought the law was that if you know a business is posted with a 30.06 sign, you are bound by it even if you didn't see it. At Grapevine Mills every direct entrance into the mall that I have been through is posted but the business entrances like Burlington Coat Factory are not. It seems me then th...

Until the last year, while I supported the right to carry, I had never thought much about the second amendment. However it seems to me that one of the most fundamental rights is the right to life, right up there with the right to liberty and the right to pursue happiness. If so, then the right to de...

If lawyer jokes were only limited to this forum!! I am an even more hated corporate lawyer so I don't have expertise in the kind of issues that arise on this kind of forum. Having said that the first case I ever won was a criminal case. However that was also 25 years ago and was the last criminal ca...

Just given the facts here, it would have been better for him to stay although I am not convinced he did anything illegal by leaving the scene. Of course if he was not a CHL or was an illegal alien or had some other inherent problem, he may have commited a crime that is not clear from the facts. Stil...

I recently bought a Marlin 336 at a gun show. However I had looked at a couple of pawn shops first. The pickings were kind of slim although I did see two at Roy's on Irving BLVd. They were kind of beat up on the outside but the barrels looked ok and the actions seemed to work fine. The guys there sa...

The court order against the ex-boyfriend really worked well didn't. Except for the second shot, this would be absolutely clear cut. I would be willing to bet that if he does get prosecuted, the jury finds him not guilty even in Minnesota.

Silberman is a good judge. He will get it right. Don't know anything about the other judge named though so there is always a chance that the other two judges will outvote Silberman. Still Silberman will probably write a good opinion that should give either a full panel or the Supremes pretty good gr...

Grabbing his pistol from under his seat while disoriented from the collision would be difficult. Sounds like he may have been following the robber too closely as well. I carry my car gun in a wilderness safepacker holster attached to the seat belt. Not sure I would be able to get it out after a car ...
