Re: What percentage of police officers have fired their weapon outside qual/training?

police and sheriff’s departments with 100 or more officers The actual figure is probably lower. I'd presume that the smaller the municipality/department, the less likely they'll need to fire their sidearms while on duty. My initial guess was 5-10%. I am not sure. I think they may fire them more in ...

Re: Medical Facilities

Government owned hospitals can post enforceable 30.06/7 signs because carry under (authority of) LTC in hospitals is prohibited in PC 46.035, if they post a 30.0x sign. Also, 411.209 contains a section allowing posting of government property prohibited elsewhere (than 30.0x) in the penal code. So g...

Re: Bullet proof clothing maker shoots himself

Richard Davis was famous for doing this. He was the founder of the Second Chance body armor company. Back in the late 70's he would shoot himself wearing a vest to demonstrate to police it would work. He was trying to convince officers of that time frame to wear vests. His is probably the person who...

Re: Now I want a Barrett

I want one of those magical Barrett 50 cal. rifles that can hurt the occupants of an armored car even if they do not penetrate the armor. I have no idea how that could happen, except maybe if the clang when it hits the metal is too loud for their sensitive ears. I read that line and the line about n...

Re: Medical Facilities

Wait, I'm confused. How does being on government property factor into the validity of the signage? I thought the AG opinion RE: Dallas Zoo basically said that private entities operating on government property have the authority to post valid signs. Am I missing something? The opinion was very caref...

Re: Medical Facilities

In my experience, virtually any healthcare or medical related facility will be posted. Doctors have to have enough individual variety that this isn't a coincidence. There must be some mandate somewhere. Does anyone know where? Well, sort of. There is a requirement in Government Code section 411.204...

Re: Insurance companies

I have been a member since 1972. I don't recall anything that implied an anti 2a stance. I have only been a member for a few years, since they changed their membership policies to include all veterans and all ranks. They have a slight anti-2A stance based on their posting all of their property in S...

Re: Stand Alone ER's / Rip Offs or ...?

Don't assume the "all insurance accepted" means that you are home free. My insurance at work has put out a notice that this is the problem and the misleading statement in stand-alone ERs. They do accept your insurance but the stand-alone is usually not in the insurance network. There is no financia...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

3. By design, since it was such a long time ago with no witnesses or video tapes or audio recordings or whatever, the card is literally a he-said-she-said game. Also with such a large gap between the supposed event and anyone hearing about it, there's no way anyone would be convicted of that crime ...

Re: LTC and "criminal street gang"

Lawful protest is not a crime even if it's offensive. Actively being a member of a gang that exists to commit and promote felonious crimes is. Membership alone should be a disqualifier but I believe each case should be adjudicated. A possibly minor technical correction but it is not a crime to be a...

Re: Range time (or lack of)

I am lucky to get to the range once every three months right now (and for the past couple years). Money is always a factor, though I have enough ammo that it is not a serious factor. I just do not have time very often.

Re: Tax assessor collectors office

I guess I answered my own question. There's a court room on the 2nd floor. I didnt think government buildings as a whole were prohibited, just the court itself This is the crux of the case between the city of Austin and the Attorney General. Paxton says, like you do, that it is only the actual room...

Re: Texas Legislative Law Handbook

I have to agree with ELB and recommend the official legislature web site. I use their site for reference at work regularly. It, and probably most guides, are missing a few things I find important but you may not need. My biggest complaint is that it sometimes take them a long time to update their si...
