Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

This ruling has huge implications once said and done. If carrying anywhere that a field trip is taking place, you can become an automatic felon without even knowing you are breaking the law. Ridiculous. Hope this goes all the way up the chain, even since the OAG is definitely not on our side.

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

Gotta pass 560. Paxton is turning out to be a little too left on these decisions.

You can draw your weapon as long as the use of force has been justified. It does not have to be deadly force. I.e. you can draw with the intent to de-escalate a situation. If you shoot, then you need the justification for deadly force.
It is a defense to prosecution under Subsection (a), (a-1), (a-2), or (a-3) that the actor, at the time of the commission of the offense, displayed the handgun under circumstances in which the actor would have been justified in the use of force or deadly force under Chapter 9.

Unfortunately I did not get a picture of it.

To be frank, I'm on the fence about this. I think it may be way to tempting for someone with a CHL who is carrying at a gun show, to pull it out (the gun that is) to try a holster or something. Something about the atmosphere at a gun show because I get the feeling that one would think about the consequences more if they were at a gun shop as opposed to a gun show. Nothing to back that up, just a gut feeling. I suppose stupid people can be stupid anywhere they please, so may be my feeling is off base.

I suppose in the grand scheme of things, I would rather have my choice of carrying at a gun show and risk stupid people doing stupid things.
They can post other signs to effect of "keep all loaded firearms holstered at all times" instead of 30.06/30.07 signs. Would work just fine.
