Re: HB1815 vs. 30.06 question

I understand that is how it works for ordinary trespass, like loitering in a mall. It's a rare LEO who doesn't get just a little bit alarmed when weapons are involved.

Then again, no one seems to be prosecuted under 30.06. It may result in arrests, but not convictions.

Re: HB1815 vs. 30.06 question

That is an interesting twist.

The nagging question in my mind is how the police would handle a call from a private property owner who wants to file a charge against someone who was found to have a weapon there.

There were those cases at Weyerhauser and Conoco-Phillips where the employers got the police to bring out "drug and gun-sniffing" dogs and caught some employees with firearms in their vehicles that way.

I have to think that if it came to that point, that the police would arrest to defuse the situation. The DA might later find that no element of an offense has been committed, or a judge might dismiss the case. It certainly wouldn't hurt to have Charles defend you. ;-)

Any LEOs care to respond?

Mr.72, the law is full of inconsistencies like this. For example, Texas law does not explicitly define a minimum age for marriage. There are several different threshold ages, the youngest being 12. :shock:

Re: HB1815 vs. 30.06 question

Sorry, guys, but you are looking at fine points of the law. These things make a difference in court, but they have little to no weight when someone calls 911 about a man with a gun.

Re: HB1815 vs. 30.06 question

Someone who is found to have a weapon on company property contrary to policy will be fired. Anyone who thinks differently, please get back to me with a documented case.

The key is being found. How do they find out? It usually involves showing off or some such foolishness.

Many companies will want to avoid the publicity of police involvement. If they don't, the police will arrest to defuse the situation. Probably no valid charge can be brought. Small comfort, especially after your wife is done talking to you about being fired. :smash:
