Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

Is there somewhere I can check to see if a neighbor is licensed?

I may be wrong, but I believe that information is limited to law enforcement for the most part. Otherwise, the antis could get it and use it in an attempt to dox all LTCs in the state.

With the neighbor himself. Otherwise none that I'm aware of as DPS is prohibited from supplying that information on individuals to anyone but law enforcement (if you are pulled over, when your DL is run, it will show you have an LTC.)

The only way would be for you to ask him.

Don't want to ask him, he threatened to shoot me. I saw he was arrested for having a handgun while being arrested for DWI.

I curious as to why you want to know. Is he doing something like open carrying on his property?

Agreed, civilians do not have access to the registry.

Now, out of sheer curiosity on my part, why would you like to know?

None of anyone's business if you have a valid LTC or not.

Is this the friendly guy who owns the dog who likes to visit neighbors?

I don't know of any way to find out if he has an LTC, but a threat is illegal, and a complaint can be filed. However, it won't disarm him. If he is making threats, and armed while off of his property, I would contact the local LEO.
You say he was arrested for DWI, that can get his LTC revoked if he had one. His arrest record can be obtained through a FOIA request, if he was charged with UCW, then it would more than likely mean he did not have an LTC.

I hope you filed a police report that he threatened you with deadly force. You could also file for a protective order so if he comes onto your property you can call police.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Getting the reports and maybe even a PPO are useful, not as deterrents, but to make the case to a Grand Jury that you acted in self defense if and when the time comes for you to defend yourself with lethal force to protect innocent life from crippling injury or death. I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice, but I am speaking from experience.

Yes. Find a LEO who runs full background checks as a side job. Technically it's not allowed but it happens. It's not as common as LEO who use the authority of their office for personal gain doing other side jobs, like traffic control or bodyguarding, but it's available if you have the right connections.

Speaking hypothetically, of course.

I would make sure he knows that threatning you with death is a very bad decision.
