I am not a lawyer, I believe that it must be in a belt, or shoulder holster.

What is the law about carrying a AR pistol? Is it the same as a regular pistol? Can you carry it on a sling or do you have to have it in a holster?

Good thing I don't live in NJ because I'm pretty sure I retreating out my own back door wouldn't be my #1 solution to someone breaking in my front door - unless it was to step outside and get more firepower and come back in ;D
Ask the Lawyers / NICS Access
« Last post by NJ102639 on June 22, 2017, 03:37:57 PM »
In another post it was said that highway or local police have access to the NICS system which would give them instant knowledge of a driver's gun history.  Is this correct and if so which states are using it?

It's beginning to look like, for family reasons, that I will be moving from Tx to Ok in the next couple of months. I have a couple of questions regarding my LTC....

1) Once I move to Ok and get an Ok drivers license, will my LTC still be valid for carrying there....or must I convert my Tx LTC over to a non resident permit? Eventually I plan to get an Ok permit, but I'd like to continue legally carrying during the interim.

2) Will I be able to switch my Tx Law Shield coverage over to US Law Shield for carry in Ok?

This is correct. When this law goes into effect on September 1, your employer will not be able to terminate you for keeping your firearm concealed and secured in your vehicle for so long as you have a valid LTC.
IANAL, but Ive been in the apartment rental business in the past. Your lease most likely lays out the circumstances under which a representative of the apartment complex can or may enter your home in your absence. It sucks, I know. Like you, I wouldnt want anyone in my home while I am not there.

I personally have never heard of any laws in the USA that require apartment complex employees to be subject to background checks, but I strongly suspect that most management companies do pre-employment background history screenings of all potential employees these days, since at some point any employee could be sent into your unit by management.

I am interested to see an atty's response to your question, but I bet you a buck he says there are no laws regarding this.

First, regarding carrying in rental cars. There are no laws specifically relating to the carry of firearms in rental cars. They are subject to the same laws as any other private vehicle. However, your rental company may have policies regarding the transport of firearms. If this is the case, the company may enforce any penalties stated in the contract. However, there are no criminal penalties.

Regarding your travels: All of the states you will be traveling through recognize your Texas LTC with the exception of Illinois.

In Illinois, your firearm must be unloaded, locked in a case in the back of the car. It must be inaccessible to you. We recommend that you drive through the state with limited stops.

In Arkansas, you may conceal carry but not open carry. In all other states, you may conceal or open carry as you would here in Texas, taking care to stay out of the places which are prohibited in Texas (bars, schools, etc.).

It is important to note that no other state has 30.06 or 30.07 signs. Instead, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, and Oklahoma will require a business to give you verbal notice that you may not have a firearm before you face any criminal penalties.

In Arkansas, keep your eyes peeled for any sign that says ‘Carrying a Handgun is Prohibited’ as it is an effective sign.

In Tennessee, legal signs will say “No Firearms Allowed” and measure at least 1 inch high and 8 inches wide.

Ask the Lawyers / Re: Shooting Range on Private Land

The requirements to shoot on private property differ from the requirements to open a public range. If your intention is solely to shoot on your own property, you will need to own at least 10 acres outside of city limits under the Local Government Code 229.002. By owning at least 10 acres, you will not be subject to municipality restrictions on discharging a firearm. You must then take the necessary precautions to ensure that any bullets do not leave the property.
