Re: "Gun-Buster" Sign Legal?

Gun buster signs have zero legal force. They mean nothing to you as an LTC. Nothing. Except to inform you that the owner apparently doesn't want guns in his establishment. Wonderful. That owner is BOUND... Let me repeat... That owner is BOUND... I don't think you heard me...that owner is BOUND legal...

Re: Gun Buster Signs

"Gun-buster" refers to the gun in a circle, the intl symbol for no guns. By itself, it has no legal status in Texas. "No guns", "no weapons", "no firearms", etc. are all non-conforming signs, and have no force of law in Texas, including with knives. I disagree on this. The signs are legal in Texas ...

Re: Leaving gun in car?

If the theory is that a thief won't bother with part of a gun......I wouldn't count on that. If it IS true the simply putting the slide in a different hidden place in the car.

Or put it in a locked attached box.

Re: Gun rights for a Felon?

The felon hasn't served his sentence. That's where the confusion is. His sentence is...to spend 10 years in prison (or whatever) AND lose the right to own a gun except for a very restricted case. That's the sentence. He continues to serve his sentence for the rest of his life. The same would be true...

Re: Fredericksburg Trade Days

There were no signs anywhere that I saw this past weekend. Saw one man open carrying without anyone paying him any mind. Thanks for the input. I bet that was me! I was there over the weekend and I was the only oc I saw. Which means I was probably the guy most people mean when they say they saw some...

Re: another 30.06 question

Tex - Thank you for a very informative post. I think the confusion arises from things like a "circle / slash" sign. To me, such a sign is the pictorial equivalent to the words "No ___ allowed", or even "No ____". Per your above, then, that would not provide sufficient legal notice to support a crim...

Re: another 30.06 question

There have been several posts since my last. A few of these as well am many of the original 5 pages of posts makes me think that I may not be making my point well or clearly and that the main point about all of this issue is being missed. A sign, any sign, that says things like "No Weapons allowed",...

Re: another 30.06 question

Nor have I.

I thinks it's because of a complete lack of knowledge on the part of owners who want to actually prohibit entry but who don't understand 30.05 well enough to do it In a way that will stand the test of the legal system.

Re: another 30.06 question

I'm not going to argue with you Scott. You seem to just be wanting to pick a fight. The sign must indicate entry is forbidden. That's all. If you put up a sign that CLEARLY indicates that entry is forbidden and the appellate court will buy it then wonderful. If you put up a sign that DOES NOT clearl...

Re: another 30.06 question

Another issue mentioned above is the enforceability of a sign. There is a difference between... "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service", and "No one without a shirt or shoes may enter" The first sign only states that one can not expect to be served, while the second unambiguously conditionally restricts e...

Re: another 30.06 question

I don't see 30.06 as a sacred property right but rather a public accommodation issue. Anyone who opens their property to the public must agree to not discriminate against various classes, which in my opinion should include legal carriers. Along with that, property owners who don't post should be sh...

Re: Is it legal? Sign split in two...

I have been doing research for a book I am writing and in that process I have read and studied literally hundreds of appellate cases on various parts of our gun laws. What I am learning...and I would not have guessed this...is that at the appellate level there is a much greater adherence to tiny det...
