Re: Costco prohibit carry - No signs posted

We had this very discussion a few years ago. Costco enters into a contractural agreement with its members concerning the conditions of membership which you as a member agree to. Since it is a private company the entrance onto which is based on membership they can restrict membership by contract. Fai...

digital sigs on forms

Can I use a digital signature on a LTC-8 form. It wont let me attach a sig jpg because the form is locked. I either have to print it off, sign it, then make a pdf or it seems to allow for a digital signature, which, by the way, anyone can create (so that's not very secure that its from me). I have c...

Renewal question

I haven’t received any notification from DPS for my instructor renewal.

Do I need that invitation to go online and take the online course?

If not can someone give me the url please.

I’m hoping I can just take that course without the notice, shoot, fill out the forms and be done.

Re: Question about on-line notice for 30.06 (3) (A)

My analysis is that the website for a church, apparently set up by the church, provides information and policies by the owners and people authorized by the owners. If you take the time to read the site, and click through to the weapons policy (nothing haphazard about that, you did it), and read the...

Re: How to check if a premise is 51%?

...Why do this? It also seems obvious the the point of making this endurance is to allow you to effective comply with the prohibition in 46.035. Now, if this is true...it follows that if a prosecutor can prove that you were already in a state of knowledge of the 51% status of the business then the ...

Re: Question about on-line notice for 30.06 (3) (A)

My analysis is this... 30.05, 30.06, and 30.07 require SIGNAGE to be placed conspicuously and clearly visible to the public. It would seem that the purpose for this is to ensure that the person to who the prohibition applies actually gets the message. There is an implied "you can't reasonably or fai...

Re: using deadly force

You can not use deadly force unless you are threatened by deathly force, so an example is a guy enters your house with a banana in his hand, you can not shoot him. The principle of proportional force prohibited and you will be going to jail. That sounds like legal advice. Are you licensed to practi...

Re: How to check if a premise is 51%?

.... While you are technically correct, one thing to remember is this is a 'defense to prosecution', but not a guarantee you won't be prosecuted. For example, if the prosecutor can convince the Judge or Jury that you well knew it was a 51% location when you entered, even without the sign, then you ...

Re: "Gun-Buster" Sign Legal?

Gun buster signs have zero legal force. They mean nothing to you as an LTC. Nothing. Except to inform you that the owner apparently doesn't want guns in his establishment. Not necessarily. Let's say you see this sign posted somewhere: https://i.imgur.com/WhwgNzu.jpg Does it mean: 1. "The owner/mana...
