Ask the Lawyers / Texas HB 435, does it apply to me?
« Last post by mdubtx on September 17, 2017, 07:26:10 PM »
Thank you for your time with my questions.

I am a licensed ham operator and member in a local radio club that supports three local EOCs. 

I have also successfully completed an accredited Tactical Combat Casualty Care for All Combatants course, with a NAEMT certificate valid until 2021. [NAEMT’s TCCC course is is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.]  I am not a licensed EMS practitioner but wanted to be prepared to offer aid in an emergency.

Do either of the above qualify me as "Volunteer emergency services personnel" in regard to the passage of HB 435 this year?  If so, what does this mean to me as a Texas LTC?
I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find my answer.

Is it true that you are not allowed to possess a handgun if you've had one or more drinks but are not intoxicated?  What about while driving?

If you are carrying an unloaded handgun with a chamber lock in place and it's in your locked glove compartment, is that an unlawful carry?

Based on my current personal experience, if you draw your weapon and/or shoot a dog in a self defense situation you will be arrested, transported, processed and jailed. Here in Texas its virtually


At a minimum, you will be charged with 42.01 "intentionally and knowingly displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner to calculate alarm."

(yeah, go ahead, try to apply the logic to that. logic has NOTHING to do with it.)

Then you will spend resources, time and stress becoming a guest in various "judicial" settings, your Texas LTC will be suspended, and the final outcome will be based on your ability to fight the

bottomless pockets of the State.

A bit of advice: Justice has absolutely NOTHING to do with it.

so, the old adage "do have have to get bit first" is meaningless. The cops will arrest you regardless (unless you are the governor and your target is a slightly different kind of canine)

Good Luck


General Firearms Law Discussion / Squatters in Colorado

Good Afternoon,

I recently read a story about a couple homeless people who broke into a house while the owner was on vacation.  They then proceeded to change the locks, and black out all the windows.  The law says the owner of the house has to evict them.  Would this be a scenario where the owner could break into their own home, let the squatters know they are unwelcome and that he is armed and can defend himself against them?  I would love to hear your thoughts on this issue as it sparked my interest and questioned what would I do if this situation happened to me.
          Hello...... I will introduce and educate them about the gun I write this from my own experience and understanding. The aim is not to flaunt their business, or in any way. I hope that people who come to read to gain more knowledge and understanding of firearms and use them more accurate and secure it. Because the gun is seen as a creation to destruction. But if we are to understand and use, and how it benefits them as well. This explains, ammunition, explosives, firearms, fireworks and artificial ordinary person can possess and use only. Act _ firearms, ammunition, explosives _ _ _ and artificial fireworks, firearms _2490 _ BC.

I just joined Texas Lawshield, and I emailed asking for a timeline to when to expect my member number and any other material in the mail. It seems no one monitors the email. Maybe someone here can tell  me?

With a New Jersey Firearms Purchasers ID Card, transport of longarms is lawful as long as the gun is unloaded. It techically does not even have to be cased.

Handguns are more strict and one must always be within an excemption under NJS 2C:39-6, unless the person has a Carry Permit. Federal law for going through NJ in interstate transportation is USC 18:962A and might apply if one is only passing through NJ.

One can not just drive around in NJ with a handgun, even a cased, locked and unloaded one. One always has to be under an exemption, be under Federal law, or have a NJ Carry Permit.

OK, found it.  Section 9.31 (b) (5)

I understand that if you carry a firearm when you plan to have a confrontation, you are presumed guilty, at least it's harder to defend.

Where is this found in the TX code?  Is that 'old law', does it predate the LTC law?  Is it still valid?

After all, if I always carry, then get in an argument, I carried a gun 'to' an argument.  Or, worse, I go somewhere to confront a neighbor about a dog, loud party, trespass, etc.  Do I need to disarm before I go, even though I have an LTC?
