No law preventing you from leaving your gun at your girl friends house as long as she can legally have a firearm - i.e. no legal reason she is disqualified from gun ownership.

I am not a lawyer, but not aware of  any law in Texas requiring you to lock up a gun. However, you can be held responsible if it gets in the hands of a minor.

I believe if you look through or do a search in the "Ask the Lawyers" section, you may find a "lawyers answer" to one or both of your questions.

I understand your concerns, however, historically concealed carry folks have a pretty good track record.

Not sure how large your company is but, yes, by putting requirements in your employee rules for being allowed to carry, you could force additional training for the priviledge of carrying at work, but the signs on the doors are "all or nothing" for the public (i.e. you don't know the good or questionable about anyone).

Another thought: unless you have metal detectors you don't know if there are weapons coming in your workplace or not. You are probably keeping out most of the ones carried by LTC folks, but what about the other 90% of folks - some of whom just carry and don't care about signs or rules?

Seems to me that actually employees with a license to carry have a right to carry on on your company property unless the owner or person in charge takes that right away from them by posting 30.06 and 30.07 or inserting a "no guns allowed..." in the employee rules and guidelines. My thoughts, and I am certainly not a lawyer, would be to not post or address the issue in employee rules.
Don't know how large your operation is, but if you start adding rules that must be met to carry there, ultimately everyone will know who is carrying - nothing like that would be a secret and I am one that thinks not knowing is one of the plus sides of concealed carry.

Ask the Lawyers / Re: "Recoverable" Property
« on: February 03, 2017, 11:10:51 PM »
recoverability by insurance seems to be a pretty vague standard to me. Having been the victum of a burglery, I can assure you that I did not feel like all of my "stuff" was "recovered" by the time insurance got through with deductable and depreceation. I suppose you could say maybe I needed better insurance which brings up another variable. If you are stealing my TV and I don't have insurance, am I more justified in shooting you than someone else is that has full replacement cost insurance?

Having said this, I do not necessarily believe that "stuff" is worth someone's life if there is no threat. and, no, I am not a lawyer so will be interesting how the real lawyers answer this.

General Firearms Law Discussion / Re: E-Plan

Not sure about information in your e-plan not being available for use in defense but whatever. In case you weren't the one that was calling in the event of a need, you might have some specific information on file like maybe a contact number for a brother-in-law that happens to be a bondsman near you, or maybe something that might be pertinant like although you are employed in an location or building that prohibits firearms, you have written permission from the manager allowing you to carry a firearm. Just my thoughts.

General Firearms Law Discussion / Re: Truck Driver

Here is how this was answered by the TLS folks a little over a year ago in the Ask The Lawyer section.

Re: Commercial Truck drivers and firearms
« Reply #2 on: June 04, 2015, 04:05:57 PM »

There is no law that restricts commercial truck drivers from having a firearm in their truck for self-defense. There are laws that address the commercial transport of firearms, and this is where the confusion typically lies I think. These laws do not apply to your personal carry weapon. So long as you are obeying the law of every state you drive through as it pertains to firearms carry, you are completely fine to have a gun in the truck. CHL or no. Of course, you are going to have a much easier time with this if you have a CHL because you will get reciprocity in many states.

Kind of wonder if this TexasLawShield answer went with the original question.???

Thanks for the detailed info.

In The News / Carry at State Fair
« on: October 04, 2016, 04:41:33 PM »
Anyone know if you can still carry at the State Fair this year as in the past if you showed your LTC. Local news made a special mention that everyone would go through a metal detector and bags would be searched and even said "you need to leave your guns at home". Just wondering.

General Firearms Law Discussion / Re: Traveling from Texas to Florida

Here is an attorney's reply to a similiar question asked previously in the "Ask the Attorney" section.

Re: Road Trip Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida
« Reply #1 on: July 11, 2016, 11:50:06 AM »

You are correct that all of these states recognize the Texas license to carry so you will be able to conceal carry while you are in these states. However, as to the specific state laws and their nuances, please call in and speak to your program attorney who can discuss each state. provides a traveler’s guide to the fifty states that includes vehicle carry. It is a good reference.

Saw a short piece on this supposed trade agreement yesterday and at the very least it is causing confusion and some concern with many. Be interesting to see if the TLS folks have any thoughts on this - please let us know if they get back with you.

"beyond it's original capabilities" might be something like buying and installing a new trigger, doing your own trigger job, free floating or glass bedding a rifle barrel. I suppose getting into trouble for something like this is a possibility under the proposed executive action, but I just don't see it as a problem for the average shooter/gun owner. Having said this, I dispise these executive actions that are aimed at changing laws without going through legal processes.

I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over this at this time. I agree with Katfish in that if I put a scope or night sights on, it is to improve my proficiency with the weapon and allows me to shoot it closer to what it is capable of. Also it makes me safer (more accurate) if by chance I have to use it in a defensive situation. I feel that for every lawyer that might go the extreme one way there is another lawyer that believes the other way (that's what keeps them in business).
I doubt there is a problem with Tx Law Shield representing you, but I certainly do not speak for them. If you want them to specifically address this, consider posting this question in the Ask The Lawyer section.
