HB 823

Postby tomneal » Thu Jun 30, 2005 9:10 am

Car Carry for Non-CHL holders

While I haven't seen anything on this recently, there seems to be a controversy about what this really means.

Does it replace 100 years of case law on "Traveling" or not.

Is there any process for getting an opinion from the Texas AG's office?

Or

Should I just put a pistol in the console of my (Non-CHL) wife and save enough money to pay for the legal bills?

Tom:
I posted my analysis of HB823 in the thread, Carry in vehicle? in the General CHL Discussion forum. I've also posted a short update to that same thread.

Short answer, I believe HB823 provides the protection Chairman Keel intended and so does NRA General Counsel. Could we be wrong, sure, but I wouldn't take a position on the issue, if I didn't feel good about it.

Also, contrary to a post on packing.org, TSRA's position is not that HB823 is ineffective at achieving its goal.

Regards,
Chas.

Charles

Thanks for the update.

It sounds like one of those laws that is just going to have to "cook" for a little while. To see how it is applied by LEO's and DA's.

I can't imagine my wife irritating the officer and/or the DA to the point where charges would be filed to "test" the limits of the new law.

On the other hand...
My son is 20 and plans to turn in his completed paperwork on his 21st birthday in January.

Paper work

Postby tomneal » Thu Jun 30, 2005 9:08 pm

That would be the completed CHL paperwork.

His sister is 4 years older and I bought her two Glocks. One for the test and one to carry. (G35 and G27) AND I paid for the class and all the other fees.

I made the same offer to my son.

That's why I pretty sure he will turn in the paper work As-soon-as-he-can.

My niece turned 21 on the 27th and she's coming to visit on Monday. She doesn't know it yet, but she's going to her CHL course on Tuesday!
