Ask the Lawyers / Re: Texas CHL/Gun License renewal procedure.
« on: June 29, 2017, 08:59:05 PM »
If your license expires the end of October, I'm surprised you haven't already received a letter from DPS licensing explaining how to renew.
Mine was to expire the end of Sept. and I received a letter in April. I did the on-line part the application and paid my fee on May 3rd and on May 15th my new license arrived in the mailbox - I was pleasantly surprised. I even have the old ink fingerprints on file and they indicated at the end of my online portion that my information on file would be "reviewed" to see if it met current standards so I figured I would have to redo something but not the case.

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

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.

Maybe get him to consider removing the 30.06 sign anyway. Is he that antigun or bowing to pressure?

Can't say as I'm surprised that New Jersery politicians/lawmakers have some strange ideas compared to what I consider the average American.  :)

When you say "cornered" I assume you mean you have to retreat if at all possible? Does this mean that if you can slip out the back door of your own house when a "bad guy" comes in the front door with a gun, you must do that  rather than shoot back??

Don't guess I know what the NJ castle doctrine says??

Is this limited to volunteer only, or does it include paid first responders also?

I believe this new law is response to many schools putting rules in place stating that employees could not have firearms in their vehicles. Of course this does not make it against the law, but they could be fired if the firearm was discovered.

Re: Coverage if I shoot a dog
« Reply #2 on: November 18, 2014, 09:58:05 AM »

There is no general right to use force or deadly force against a dog that is attacking a human. The Texas Health & Safety Code has authorized the killing of a dog or coyote if it is attacking a domestic animal, livestock or fowl, but not a human. There is a self-defense provision contained in the cruelty to animal’s crime, but it only applies to attacks from "dangerous wild animals", however, dogs are not in this category. A person who is charged with a crime resulting from defending themselves or another, would have to rely on the defense of necessity, showing that to not commit a crime would actually result in a worse consequence. Such as, to not shoot an attacking dog would result in a mauled child. Keep in mind that if a person does use a firearm to kill a dog, that they could not only be charged with cruelty to animals, but also any of the gun crimes, i.e. display by a concealed license holder, disorderly conduct, deadly conduct, discharge in a municipality, or discharge in violation of municipal ordinance. Related to your specific circumstance, it would most likely be a question which would have to be decided by a judge or jury. TLS reviews each case on a case-by-case basis. In the situation you provided, barring other circumstances, this would be covered by TLS.

According to a news article I pulled up, the police spokesman said the Alcohol Beverage Commision listed the club as a Blue sign meaning it was not a 51% business. He did comment that there was some confusion because there was actually both a red and blue sign posted but said he felt like the red sign was in error.

Surely no DA is going to try and make something out of this!

Might be a bit further, He Crow, but would be a lot less hassle to get hunting property in Texas  :)

Based on CongoHarry's post, it doesn't sound like they are making it a gun free zone. The media, as usual, didn't get everything straight.

I am not a lawyer but this is not the "ask the lawyer" section so I will give my 2 cents worth.

I believe in order for them to legally mail it to you, they would have to have someone in Houston with a FFL send it to someone in your current location that also has a FFL.

As far as selling it and sending you the money, I don't see why that would be a problem as long as they are legal to have the weapon.

If you want a real lawyer's answer, might post this question in the Ask the Lawyers section.
