Out of State ID

I just want to be certain that what I believe is correct (too late to call ATF). A person moves to Texas from Colorado and does not get a new ID in Texas. Said person wants to purchase a rifle, using the Colorado ID in Texas. I believe that as the address on the ID does not match the actual address,...

Re: Juvenile Felony

A juvenile felony disqualifies you for 10 years from the date of disposition. I had more than one felony adjudication, with the last one being in 1998 when I was fourteen. I went through the TYC system and got off parole in 2004 at age twenty one. I became eligible for a CHL in 2008. I have always ...

Juvenile Felony

This is one that comes up constantly for me. My general answer is to get your record from DPS or MorphusTrust. However, understanding that purchasing a firearm is a different background check than a CHL application, if a person with a juvenile can purchase a firearm, would that indicate that the rec...

Re: Open carry on your own property??

So I apologize if this is redundant, I could not find a previous post. As TX PC 46.02 is silent on carrying long guns, is is a safe bet that it is not illegal to carry a long gun in your vehicle while it is not concealed? I can find nothing in the law that specifically addresses this...

Re: Self Defense Question

:iagree: Someone might try and make a big deal out of it, but there is no law against drinking in your own home if you own firearms. If you are justified in using deadly force then that should be all there is to it. If not, then the alcohol will severely complicate things. So then the best answer s...

Self Defense Question

I had a student ask: "If you're in your own home and had been drinking, what are the ramifications of shooting an intruder", only as it relates to the alcohol? My best answer so far is that it depends on may other factors, such as, were you threatened, however the alcohol may skew any mitigating cir...

Re: CHL-16 clarification for 30.06 sign

So, under 46.035(c) you may not carry at ANY government meeting. I was recently at Williamson County Appraisal District and they have a 46.035 blurb on stenciled on the door, stating that it is illegal to carry there due to the meetings inside. So what constitutes a government meeting? Can two peopl...

Re: Where to find CHL Statistics

OK, I know we don't register them here, I'm an FFL and CHL instructor. I have to let the feds know every time someone purchases a firearm and tell the state about everyone taking a CHL class from me.
