Re: carrying under what authority?

My opinion is that you do not choose which authority you are carrying under in cases like this. You need to remember that you are carrying under the authority of your license ONLY when it provides an exception to the law making your carrying otherwise illegal. So, in most cases, you are not carrying...

Re: A shot in the dark. Or, is it?

Thanks for those answers. I had not considered the hunting or sport shooting side of the questions since I focus primarily on self defense. You certainly could enjoy the hobby with the spotter that way. Incidentally, you could get a remote control speaker to put on the target frame and beep, much li...

Re: A shot in the dark. Or, is it?

Welcome, Robert. I think you are bringing up a very interesting point. I might explain that most instructors would not be interested in a visually impaired student because of their perception of a safety problem. I have seen some instructors who are also not interested in teaching physically disable...

Re: Sign clarification 30.05

30.07 means no open carry by a CHL. 30.05 means no carry by an unlicensed person at all. Some of the debate is that the 30.05 sign says that no one may carry there, but people don't read the whole law where subsection (f) says it doesn't apply to a person with an LTC and carrying a pistol concealed ...

I have never understood how any Jew can look at our history and current events and be anti-gun. I guess they did not grow up with the same understanding of the term :Never Again" that was instilled in me.

Re: Voters must consider eight amendments to the Texas Constitution November 2nd

I have a very negative opinion regarding amendments to the Texas Constitution. I believe amendments should be treated like hall of fame inductees, and only those things which are most important, and "no brainers" should go in. Amending the Constitution, should be more than a popularity co...

Re: Under constitutional carry, am I considered “licensed” as far as carrying goes?

I work in a state office building, my building has 0 information to being able to carry on the premises, but also does not have a single sign posted disallowing it. Come September I intend to take DPS’ instructional course and even potentially go get my CHL and begin carrying. Just not entirely sur...

Re: Let's hope Allen West runs for govenor

Don Huffines is the other (R) candidate presently, also appears very Conservative (Dallas native, successful entrepreneur) and to the right of Abbott. Abbott has a massive war chest, rumored that he may also seek Presidency. Huffines is out for me, until he can explain how he would replace the prop...

Re: Constitutional Hearings

Senate analysis is available online. You can see the side by side comparison of the passed senate version and the passed house version. https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/87R/senateamendana/pdf/HB01927A.pdf Frankly, while I understand and support the Constitutional argument, at this point I would ra...
