Re: Question: Chief Law Enforcement Office for NFA FORM 4 Notification

Well my paperwork was just submitted and I mailed a copy of the Form 4 and the "Responsible Person" form for each member on my trust to the Denton County Sheriff. This added requirement is a bummer but better than having to have a sign off. My other submissions a few years back were approved within...

Re: Senators introduce Assault Weapons Ban

... Sadly, if this should ever get to a vote in the Senate there will be some "-R"s who vote for it. Correct. However since McLame, Flake, and Corkie are gone it likely wouldn't make it to the floor. If it did, I hope it wouldn't pass, but with Collins and Murkowski and others... And I hope Trump w...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

What about LEO and Special Investigators (Feds) who are not currently subject to those sections... Yes, there is no exception for anyone in the proposed 30.06 and 30.07. This will get all of the police organizations to oppose it very quickly. Whether we like that part or not, we need their cooperat...

Re: Question: Chief Law Enforcement Office for NFA FORM 4 Notification

I jus try completed my forms and used the Denton County Sheriff.....thanks for all the replies. And yes, it's just a notification, something I didn't have to do before the changes that went into effect (I have a trust). That’s interesting. I didn’t realize that a trust allowed someone to circumvent...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

So, if Constitutional Carry is approved, then what would be the advantage to having an LTC? No NICS check for buying guns, reciprocity with other states, Federal GFSZA exemption. Possibly exclusion from 30.06 and 30.07, depending on how its written. Not with Stickland's bill. But I have heard that ...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

That is quite the bill.... Sheesh there is a lot of distributed code. Looks like it makes constitutional carry apply to all, and makes 30.06 and 30.07 only apply to 'unlicensed persons'. It would likely only make it through with additional provisions for what a license holder can and cannot do- but...

I would pick the agency most likely to sign off.
Agencies don't sign off any more. They are simply notified, by mailing a copy of the form.

Re: Question: Chief Law Enforcement Office for NFA FORM 4 Notification

I now live in Carrollton, TX (Denton County). I will call the Carrollton Police Department tomorrow but thought I'd ask here: has anyone that lives in Carrollton/Denton County submitted a FORM 4 and if so, who did you use as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (and address)? Based on the below defini...

Re: Government shutdown

I was in the military when there was a big government shutdown over abortions in the late 70's and we didn't get paid and still went to work. This is not new. It was no big deal in the late 70's and no big deal now. We have too much government as it is and as long as the military gets funded I can'...
