hmm, any sympathy I might have felt went away when I see his charges include assulting a peace office.

In reading a bit more about this, there are some questions in my mind. Found no mention that the man was actually carrying while drinking in the bar. Supposedly got obnoxious enough he was told to "Get Out". Now the problem - he's drunk, has firearms in his room that need to go out with the rest of his stuff - what do you do? Hotel staff goes to "help" him get his stuff and leave and things go south from there.

I haven't seen anything lately, but I'm guessing this won't develop into much although it may cost him a bundle for a good lawyer.

Following is what the lawyers said in the ASK THE LAWYER SECTION:

 The Texas Penal Code does not specifically address TASERs. For that reason, it is legal for you to carry a TASER openly or concealed. TPC 30.06 and 30.07 signs specifically prohibit carrying a handgun, and they do not prevent you from carrying a TASER.

If you are referring to the little church near San Antonio where the gunman shot through the walls before entering and slaughtering most inside, I'm not sure how Tasers come to mind!  Don't get me wrong, I'm totally in favor of concealed firearms in churches but even the most well armed person would have been at a BIG disadvantage in that situation against an AR style weapon.

Read the thread titled TASER carry. The lawyers address this issue

Ask the Lawyers / Re: Legality of carrying with "Clipdraw"

I'm a little confused MRJLW. On one hand you indicate you only plan to carry concealed and the TLS lawyer indicated there is no holster requirement for concealed carry - so how can there be a "grey area" to get you in trouble if you don't even have to use a holster for concealed carry (and if you do use a holster, the law doesn't indicate a requirement at all).

Appears to me the only time the the so called grey area comes into question is if you decide to open carry with a clip draw.

Is it possible to park off your employer's property - like on the street or in a neighboring lot?

What is the possibility of them searching your vehicle (i.e. have they ever searched a workers vehicle before).

Do they have a written policy for all employees?

This is one reason I just don't ask. If it's posted legally or written plainly in a policy statement, fine but I will not ask because once you ask and get this kind of answer it's hard to say you had no idea.

Several details seem vague - maybe on purpose?

Don't know if he had LTC although I doubt it or that would probably have been mentioned. Like you said, the wording makes it unclear if he had a weapon on him. If just weapons in his room - I guess about all the hotel can charge his with is trespassing since he didn't follow their rules.

You could be right - may depend on his lawyer.

Not a weapon???  You come at me with a tazer and I will certainly consider it a weapon - whether I'm technecally right or wrong.

Not a lawyer, but I'm thinking you pretty much had to leave or do what he said once he confronted you . Although I seriously doubt he could "dictate" a $10,000 fine or any fine at all for that matter, I believe he could ask you to leave.  Will be interesting the possibilities offered by the lawyers. Do you routinly go around open carrying a Tazer? If so, ever been asked to disarm or leave before?

Might put this question in the "ask the Lawyers" section for a legal answer. Oops - I see you have already. Sorry

Might put this question on the "Ask the Lawyers" part of this forum for an official answer. I am not a lawyer, but as I understand the law, a person with a LTC is legal to have a weapon on school property as long as it is not in a building or where school activities are being held. I don't see a problem with how you have been handling the situation.

I sometimes carry my shield in a Smart Carry pouch. Somewhat like a belly band but carries weapon low in front at or just below belt line. Conceals very well, very comfortable standing or walking but not quite as comfortable when setting.

If you're asking for a lawyer's opinion, might put this question in the "Ask the Lawyer" section. Other than that, I would agree with Sammyboy - don't let folks know about the firearm. That means not talking about it with work folks. Another thought is the possibility of parking in another spot outside the employee lot but I don't know it that is feasible.
Obviously I would keep the vehicle locked and suggest having the weapon in a small gunsafe under a seat or possibly in a console - that way you can argue that it was unavailable to the average person.
Not sure what kind of company you work for, but I'm guessing the chances of them searching all vehicles in the parking area is slim. Other than keeping a low profile and not causing reason for a search, I'm guessing you just take your chances unless Colorado has some sort of parking lot bill like Texas.

I am reasonably sure Katfish is correct also. I have never seen anything that indicated to me a holster was required for concealed carry - only open carry.

I have my doubts that a national reciprocity bill that forces a state with very limited or no carry laws to accept other states licenses will become the law, but in the event it does, I would anticipate LOTS of roadblocks thrown up in the way of legal challanges from various states. If that fails, then states like New Jersery will make all sorts of stipulations making it almost impossible for you to comply (like you have to register your firearm with some authority if you want to carry and they will issue you a special ID badge that must be worn conspicuously anywhere you travel) ???

Might want to ask this question in the "Ask the Lawyer" section.
