Re: Do you really expect any different in TX?

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
I retort with this ruling which says they can't, and which, incidentally, is from the 6th Cir. Court of Appeals, the court of appeal directly above the district in Michigan quoted above:

Split precedential decisions within a circuit just reveal the individual judge's bias. Anti-gun partisans are gonna hold their breath and stamp their feet at every opportunity no matter what laws, higher courts, or society may say.

I used to open carry regularly before moving to Texas. Never had any problems. Don't expect them here either.
