I see the news article and I see the poll but not the video. I clicked on the picture in the news headline and a new window opened wit...

The only place I have heard reports of assault rifles being a problem is crimes is in the border area by the drug smugglers. And of course, those reports also say it is Mexican Army soldiers carrying them, so I don't see them as crime weapons at all. I also take the reports of the Mexican Army with ...

Well I talked to a trooper I know and a retired Longview PD Capt. about this they both said the officer can do this and "not a good idea to pursue this any further." This "is tactics for people under suspicion with criminal records". I asked about a refuse to search and was told that will make you ...

It could be done very easily with an restriction code. Most people only know one or two of the codes that are common, like the A for glasses. How many of you know what a J or K restriction indicates? I can see reasons for it, but I don't care that much about it either way. Of course, since I don't h...

I believe that the Alamo is currently legally owned by the state of Texas and under the management of the DRT. This means it cannot be posted for 30.06 carry. A quick research through Google shows that Texas bought it in 1883, turned it over to San Antonio to manage, and then over to the DRT for man...

I will take a stab at answering some of the interesting questions posted in this thread, starting with your rights about searches, when and what an officer can search, and ending with if the officer did anything wrong. All of this is my personal understanding of the law (and that specific stop as re...

No, nothing shows up when tags are run but the owner and the stolen status. If you run a DL, it will also show the CHL but I don't know if the expired CHL will show up then or not. I would guess it depends on when it expired. I was stopped ny DPS for a bad tail light about a year after my CHL expir...

It's confirmed the mall in question is posted for no CCW just like Katy Mills. A ghostbuster works there. I wonder if any lawsuits against the mall owners will come?? I was also involved in another discussion on this and I am no longer sure the sign has any legal meaning. It was pointed out to me t...

Well, my opinions have all been covered already, though only one person seems to have caught onto one fact I wanted t repeat. First, in any case where my life is in danger, I have Texas laws on my side to allow deadly force for self defense. Second, I would not care about the laws, survive first and...

I was very glad to read that you were not seriously injured. The event did bring up a question in my mind. Namely, what happens if I am injured seriously enough in an accident that I have to be transported to a hospital? Who gets custody of my weapon? (assuming that my wife is not along and able to...

I am glad I am not the only one that thought the home owner used poor tactics by entering the house without a gun in his hand. That was my first thought, why enter instead of calling the police while watching the outside? But, after he entered, my answers differ from the video in two ways. First, th...

Re: And this is why we need the Castle Doctrine

Momma is going to sue the store owner because she thinks her son should have been shot only once, instead of three times. Do I hear a Doh! http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Academy/2229/ahomersmile.gif I wonder if any lawyers had been contacted yet to tell her she has no standing or legal ability ...
