Not a PC term, but a slight twist to the "Designated Driver" concept that is so well received and understood.

Any business that posts 30.06/30.07 is liable for damages in case of assault/theft/etc.

Tennessee's law goes into effect next week. Hopefully we can learn from it and put something in front of the legislature in 2017.

I vote for a law changing (one of) the definition(s) of intoxicated for LTC to 0.10 BAC, like Nevada... :biggrinjester:
4/13/1996 Completed CHL Class, 4/16/1996 Fingerprints, Affidavits, and Application Mailed, 10/4/1996 Received CHL, renewed 1998, 2002, 2006, 2011, 2016...). "ATF... Uhhh...heh...heh....Alcohol, tobacco, and GUNS!! Cool!!!!"

There's a new statute in Tennessee that we would do well to emulate:

Any permit holder (a) who forbears from carrying because of a sign barring firearms and (B) who is injured has a cause of action against the poster of the sign, if:

1. The injured permit holder was authorized to carry a gun at the time of the incident,

2. The injured permit holder was prohibited from carrying a firearm due to the posting of a gun-free sign, and

3. The property owner was not required to be posted by state or federal law and posted by choice

While I think it's a positive move, I don't see how it can stick legally. The customer knows before entering that guns aren't allowed, and then makes a concious decision to enter that restaurant instead of going somewhere else. Nobody forced him to go in. Does the Tennessee law somehow negate this angle?

Language defining that 30.06/07 statutes do not apply to hotel guests or apartment renters and may not be enforced in these cases.

Make property owners responsible for the posting and upkeep of signage regardless of whether the property is rented. (Make city's responsible for the actions of their tenants regarding signage).

:iagree: Since the statistics show that LTC holders are more law abiding that LEO's, why restrict our ability to carry places that a LEO can carry?

In this manner, private property applies/gets signs easily if they wish, but signs that are intended to go on public property, especially for temporary events, would not be granted.
Another winning idea! Yes, Mr. Business Owner, you do have the right to ban Texas "good guys" from your establishment, however to do so you must apply with the state in order to exercise that right to post the signs. And don't forget to include the paperwork that your "security instructor" gave you upon completion of your class and practical demonstration in business security.

What about requiring hotels, motels, and the like to post on their websites if they have a 30.06 or 30.07 sign?

Already required but there's no enforcement of it.

I'd like to see every business that prohibits the most lawful of Texans to carry handguns be required to put it on their website. And register their signs with the state so it can be researched by LTC's prior to driving to the site.

OK, then a legislatively imposed remedy that the trespass charge will not stand. You ought to have notice when you book your room, not when you stagger into the motel after a long day on the road.

For gov't employees who direct illegal 30.06/07 postings on public buildings, make them PERSONALLY responsible for fines. If someone else (the taxpayers) picks up the bill, why do they care if it's illegal? Make them personally responsible for their decisions to use their authority to act contrary to the law. If they know they might be on the hook for the bill, they'd think twice about it.

If I break the law, I pay for it. Sauce for the goose.
