No 51% sign in a 51% establishment...

#1

Post by Reds45ACP » Mon May 13, 2013 1:20 pm

I'd like to notify someone about a missing 51% sign at an establishment that shows a "Red Sign" on the TABC website. TABC doesn't list improper signage as a reason for complaint so I can't go that route. Anyone know someone that works there or anything similar?

Thanks in advance.
Hello. My name is Red and I used to carry a .45. Now I carry a 9mm and it's getting easier to admit every day.

Just email or call them, it is a valid complaint as it is a violation of the tabc code/rules

You could but what's the benefit to getting rid of a defense to prosecution?

Because it is only a defense to prosecution, not an exception. You can still be charged and taken to court and then you will have to prove you didn't know it wasn't a 51% location. Better to know it is with a 51% sign and then not carry or maybe not even go there.

It's not my duty to post signs for businesses, or to do homework to figure out if a business should be posting. I don't see a sign, I carry.
God and the soldier we adore,
In times of danger, not before.
The danger gone, the trouble righted,
God's forgotten, the soldier slighted.

In this case, it would be a matter of taking the ride and then beating the rap.
