Do you really expect any different in TX?

I think this is "old news" (June 1, 2015), but bears repeating:
According to the court documents, the legality of open carry in the state was never in question, only if law enforcement had the authority to detain an individual simply because they were open carrying a firearm.

U.S. District Judge Janet Neff determined that yes, officers do have that authority.

Federal court says police can stop open carriers

Love the photo of the law abiding OC'er down on the ground, eating concrete, apparently handcuffed, and apparently having LEO pointing a pistol at him.

You can read the entire decision here

Anyone wanna bet on how Art in Austin is reacting to this Federal court decision?
