If you talk to the judge, and maybe stop in and speak to the county prosecutor one day about it (or ask the judge if he can introduce you to the prosecutor) you will be good to go.
Wouldn't hurt anything to get something in writing from one or both of them.
Good topic by the way.... probably not many in your situation but for those who are this will be a helpful thread.
Just curious and hope you post what the judge tells you after he has gone through the proper channels. Good luck and thanks for posting
I've spoken to the county judge and the D.A., with both of them telling me that they had no problem with me carrying in the buildings after hours. I don't have anything in writing yet, and I'll probably give them a couple of more weeks before I bring it up again.
...awesome news...wise of you to wait for the paperwork...politicians are especially prone to selective amnesia...
And keep a copy of the authorization on you in case questions are asked.
...those aren't the questions to ask...the question is: "...do I want to be committing a 3rd degree felony?"
...he doesn't...that's why he's working on the written permission that is allowed for within the law...CYAWP...Semper Fi!!!
I had our senior district judge tell me today that he would write and sign a document giving me permission to carry a concealed weapon in the courthouse, and the county judge also informed me that the state of Texas is about to pass legislation authorizing the commissioners courts in the state to approve county employees with a CHL license to carry on county property as well. I had already been told by the county judge and county DA that they wouldn't prosecute me for using my weapon in self defense, but our county lawyer told me to get it in writing so as to comply with the law in full.
...awesome good news...worth the effort to get official sanction!!!
I finally (after 4 months ) got a written letter from the District Judge authorizing me to carry concealed on courthouse property. I will have that letter, along with a copy of my CHL license, put in my permanent employee file.
