And don't tell them the difference or they might put up a 30-06 sign

I'm not a big fan of blaming someone other than the bad guy for things he or she did, but in this age of litigation, I won't be surprised if someone at least attempts this. I would think a lot of "stars" would have to line up (i.e. prove you habitually carried, dis-armed due to the 30-06 sign before entering, convince a jury that had you been armed it would have made a difference in whether you got injured, and possibly even show that the bad guy chose that location because of the 30-06 sign). After the theater shooting in Auroa, CO. there was an offer by some pro concealed carry guy in Ariz (I think) to pay all attorney fees for anyone that was injured and had disarmed because of the posting if they would sue the theater. I never heard if anything developed.

Sgtcahill84 was your question supposed to say "even" if I haven't been drinking or was "open" the intended word?

In The News / Didn't know this about buying ammo
« on: August 22, 2014, 05:39:15 PM »
Today I heard a news clip on the radio referring to the Govenor's situation that was talking about him having his concealed carry license suspended. I knew about that requirement, but they said (and they mentioned Texas Law Shield as a source I think) he could not buy any ammo for his guns and he could not buy any more guns during the time he was under indictment. I did not know either of these facts, but they very well may be true. I understand how the buying more guns could be enforced through the paperwork done during the purchase, but how is the restriction on buying ammo enforced, if indeed that is the law?

Seems a bit of a stretch to me. Using that logic owning a gun could be premeditation and getting a concealed carry license and actually carrying one with you certainly is. Does  having insurance on your vehicle (assuming it wasn't required) mean you plan to have a wreck?

Gun Talk / Re: Lasers On Hand Guns...!!

I'm like Kurtpenn - I'll stay with regular sights on my carry gun. Not saying that there might not be situations where a laser would be an asset or maybe an intimidation factor, but in a situation where everything goes south suddenly, it seems to add too many variables (i.e. wrong lighting, don't get turned on, light fails for some reason). Guess I'm old fashioned.

On  gun manufacturer websites I now see notes on certain models that they can not be sold in *** state. Usually if you look at the specs and the state or states mentioned you realize it is because of the magazine capacity. If you are a resident of a state with a restriction, I would think legitimate dealers would not sell you a weapon that is illegal in that state but I'm sure there are less legal options.

Yes there is a difference. Again I am not a lawyer and don't remember all the particulars but Federally owned buildings or property are off limits to concealed carry even without 30.06 posting (i.e. post office). With some exceptions most city, county, and state property would have to be posted 30.06 (depending on what is taking place - i.e. council meeting or some government meeting). There are of course other specific places off limits by statute like polling places, jails, schools, etc. I realize after thinking about this that I need to re-read my concealed carry laws again

I am not a lawyer, but definitely understand your concern and hesitation. Once the information is disclosed, it can't be taken back. Also once HR has the copy of your CC license in your "folder", who has access now or 5 years down the road? I assume you don't want to lose this job if by some fluke they caught you carrying with having notified them even though it wouldn't be illegal.

I am not a lawyer, but why not? Not a federal library is it? Not 30.06 posted is it?

Not sure about some of your scenarios but leaving a unattended weapon on a sideline or in a briefcase while being "out of control" of it seems somewhat irresponsible to me. Now having said that, I understand briefcases can be locked but i"m not leaving my carry weapon where someone can just pick it up and walk away with it.

"opening fire" doesn't seem to me like the wise thing to do if it were to come down as you suggest.

General Firearms Law Discussion / Re: Shipping a Handgun
« on: August 21, 2014, 04:00:41 PM »
When I shipped a gun back to S & W for repair, I used FedX but was told I had to take it to a main office, not just a shipping center or branch location. (In Longview there was only one location and that was downtown) I was using a shipping label provided by S & W but it didn't seem special. I did declare what was being shipped and 1st was told " Oh no" but within 10 seconds of her walking behind a wall and asking someone, the clerk returned and said "OK".  The weapon was returned by FedX also.
