ACTION ITEM: HB1831

Postby Charles L. Cotton » Fri May 27, 2005 11:18 am

Gov. Perry has proven himself a true friend of the Second Amendment, CHL holders and gun owners in general. In my opinion, he has earned an A+ rating from TSRA and NRA. This post is not intended to be the least bit critical of Gov. Perry.

Please contact the Governor's office and respectfully request that he sign HB1831. Currently, the term "conviction" for purposes of the CHL statute, includes all deferred adjudication, regardless when it occurred. HB1831 changes the definition of "conviction" to exclude deferred adjudications if 1) they are over 10 years old; and 2) do not involve violent crimes, i.e. those covered in the Texas Penal Code, Title 5 - Offenses Against the Person (murder, kidnaping, sexual assault, assault, trafficking of persons), or Chp. 29 (Robbery). In short, deferred adjudication for a non-violent crime over a decade old will no longer be disqualifying for CHL applicants.

Regards,
Chas.
