I was under the impression retired LEOs carried under a federal permit. They don't need a state LTC.

How about waiving fees for all honorable law abiding citizens?

Some of us have them anyway. It gets us out of the phone call background check. It also covers the one very weird circumstance where a place has a regular no guns sign but no 30.06 or 30.07. The exemptions in 30.05 cover active officers and LTCs but let any sign apply to a retired officer.

How about waiving the fees for Texas residents who pay property taxes? And raising the fees for nonresidents, regardless of their current or prior employer.

Is a honorably retired LEO less able to pay $40 for an LTC than a honorably retired trash worker or water department worker? How about a honorably retired teacher, or a honorably retired pastor or a honorably retired firefighter?
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Exactly. Civilian is civilian, regardless of your sacrifice or contribution to society. Free for one, free for all. If lawmakers want to reward honorable people, start by waiving fees for single mothers.

Now I know which legislators don't support the right of THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms.

Thank you anti Second Amendment legislators for making my job as a voter much easier.
