If you are arrested, the officer shall seize your weapons and LTC.

Class B misdemeanor if you fail to show your LTC when ID is demanded by an officer and you are carrying a handgun.

Police stations off limits for firearm carry unless it is a handgun and you are licensed to carry it.

That third bit might survive...

The first two are garbage.

Nope and Nope!! This is just a way to allow swatting. This was why the statute was written, so that the mere fact of carrying, was not probable cause to demand your LTC. This is also a way, to prevent anyone, involved in a self defense shooting, to not only lose their gun, but also their LTC, before they have been charged or convicted of any crime. More emails being sent to my reps.

I prefer a law creating a Class B misdemeanor offense if a peace officer fails to show their license when a citizen asks if they're a LEO. :evil2:
