TABC's policy when they receive a complaint is that an agent will visit the location within 30 days for any violation. There will also be a follow-up visit within 60 days. Serious complaints start immediate investigations. The only thing that will not get an investigation is a complaint that is not ...

Well, if it cannot be fixed, then I will start helping get the word out to kill it. I am not a pilot (yet) but the first thing that jumped out to me was all the general aviation airports it would affect. It will really be bad for those. But on that note, how does the FAA handle the problem? I was at...

HB 2774

Charles, I just read the text of the airport bill. Thanks for posting this since I had not heard of it before. The way the bill is worded, it is a very bad bill though it was probably done with good intentions. The bill looks like it was intended to correct a glaring loophole in the current law on t...

I also heard that. And my first thought was that this could be a very interesting legal case. I really don't care too much about Ohio's status as a general rule, but I seem to remember that they were also the state that ratified the Income Tax amendment and that there was some question about whether...

I don't see this as a professional event, especially since they have no sanctioning body, no mention of prizes, and an open invitation to anyone to come out and just see what your car or bike can do. And then there is the whole debate on what is a sport and does racing even count. But for the rest o...

I carry a North American Arms Guardian .380. It fits in my hip pocket with no problems and I have faith it will go bang every time I pull the trigger. It is a long rough trigger pull, but it will do for me.

Hmmm . . . so as I understand it, if one calls the police after shooting an intruder who's DRT in, say, the living room, the police would be expected to enter and take stock of the immediate area, and perhaps make a quick check of the rest of the home to see if there were other people present . . ....

Schools get about 37% from local funds, 57% from the state and only 9% Federal money. The federal govt. has little input over schools. I disagree. Many federal laws get passed, such as No Child Left Behind, that apply to any school that receives any federal funding. If the school district accepts o...

Now, to throw in my two cents worth on this. First, and most important, I am judging this by Texas law, and Florida law may be different. The woman did not commit a crime, IMHO, by attempting to close the door when the deputies were serving the papers. I am not a Constable, who in Texas is responsib...

This is a serious question - IANAL and frankly, I just don't know how far the police can go when they're investigating a residential shooting. Can they go through dressers, search your attic, demand you open your gun safe, hand over keys to a safety deposit box, etc., without obtaining a warrant? I...

I have been sitting here wondering about this item since it was released (well, off and on, not the whole time).

Thanks, Chas. No offense, but I am not greatly comforted that the attorneys present agreed that "with force" means "opening an unlocked door", when that is not defined in either statute or common law. Kevin No offense taken and there are many times I reject contentions offered by other attorneys, j...

Jimlongley,

Well, I guessed wrong, but there is another place in the continental US where you were not born in a city, state, county.

I just assumed we would have turned down anyone from Louisiana for a CHL, just because.

I strongly suggest you actually read the laws governing this, as with most laws that afect your life or are controversial. There are several parts of this that bother me, and at least one which may bother you with regards to your RKBA. TTC section 227.021(c) says that the department decide who is al...

This is a huge change but immunity doesn't mean you can't be sued. It means that if you prove up the elements, then as a matter of law, not fact, you can't be found liable. With an affirmative defence, even if you proved up the element, the issue goes to the jury and who knows what the jury does wi...
