A test case is not the issue here, Trainman. Restricting firearms owners just because they actually exercise their rights is the issue. The way the issue of firearms, arming oneself, and normal legal activities are treated, if you choose to arm yourself, you can not act like a normal free American. The whole point of this thread is what we as a group, individuals who must obtain a "license" to exercise our right, would like to see changed during the next legislative session. Okay, tell the legislature we, as a group, do not want to be trated as freaks, gun nuts, abnormalities, and a minority, who can not exercise our freedoms and liberties just because we do what we do.

Bars

Obviously, public intoxication on the good-bad scale is bad. I appreciate the belief that public intoxication while carrying is on the bad end of the scale as well.

Let us examine this for a moment. Is it the fact that a person is armed or that he is publicly intoxicated? If a person is PI, is he more dangerous if he is eating a steak and using a big ol' steak knife?

I am not advocated intoxication in public at all. As stated previously, PI is a judgement call. Is your second ammendment right a judgement call as well? Does the constitution say that when I am at Gaido's in Galveston and want to share a realy nice sauvignon blanc over two dozen fresh gulf coast oysters with the wife on our 30th anniversary that I have to leave my firearms at home?

Placing generalized restrictions on carry just because you have some aversion to what others believe is normal behavior is the same thing the gun grabbers are doing on a daily basis. This no carry if a little alcohol is involved is bull. Hang a sign around my neck that says "Rob me I have been drinking" or hang one on my house that says "kick down the door, Jack Daniels on board. The DA will prosecute the homeowner if he shoots you".


Rights are rights, and maintaining these rights while you are doing something legal is what America is about. Or used to be.

This doesn't seem as important as it did a year ago. Our AG and Gov. have been busy.

4. Unrestricted Open carry, especially in vehicles. I hate having to adjust everytime I get into my pickup.
I would prefer a change from "Concealed Carry" to "Carry".

3. Unrestricted concealed carry. Too many restrictions. This includes the workplace.
Workplace carry restrictions are based on Texas Employement law. I am not sure changes.

"Carrying under the influence?"
Has anyone been charged or convicted of this?
Were they over the leagal driving limit?
Mr. Neal, If you don't travel much, reciprocity does not affect you. I travel all over North America including Canada. Can't do much about Canada, but last time I checked, the second ammendment applied to the 50 states. Yes the AG has done well, but I can't legally carry squat in Kalifornia. And states like Nevada where you have to apply in person is bull. Texas could legalize workplace carry, I don't care if it is employment law. Last time I checked, that is what we paid the legislature for. In Pennsylvania, bar carry is legal. I have sauntered up to the bar, ordered a beer, and a burger, and watched Sportscenter while packing my Kimber. Florida has a legal definition of .08 for carrying under the influence. My suggestions are valid based on my lifestyle. :!:

2007

1. Unrestricted parking lot storage.

2. Copy Florida's "Castle Doctrine" law.

3. Unrestricted concealed carry. Too many restrictions. This includes the workplace.

4. Unrestricted Open carry, especially in vehicles. I hate having to adjust everytime I get into my pickup.

5. Remove SA/Revolver restriction.

6. Establish intoxication standard. "Carrying under the influence?" If I want a glass of wine over dinner with my lovely wife, I should be able to while carrying! My 2nd ammendment rights do not evaporate just because I want a drink. (Do you think I will be flamed for this?)

7. Relax printing/brandishing law. CHL'ers are way too paranoid about this when it should be a non issue. Just because someone sees a handgun should not be a criminal offense.

8. Universal reciprocity, as long as the other state reciprocates, and there is a background check.
