    I would hope our officials feel safer in a building where only they are allowed to carry guns, he said. If terrorists and criminals with guns cant get in, why does anyone need one in here? translation. "BAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH"


    Because they could try to shoot their way in Mr. Sheep.

    San Antonio's Kens5 news had a very slanted view of this calling the metal dectectors useless!

    This article on there website isn't as bad as the news cast at ten was:

    I wonder if that is only for texas chl holders, or if I could get in with my florida non resident permit which texas honors.

    Out-of-state licenses honored in Texas should be regarded the same a Texas license.

    Now, whether or not it works like that in practice, I have no idea.

    Yeah, but can they profile hispanics or other majority minority members of the oppressed masses who don't bother with taking and passing CCW classes?

    The article doesn't say, I was also wondering about out of state persons with a permit Texas honors. I would assume you need to display your permit when entering through the CHL lane.

    Since Tx honors other State permits and you have to pass the same background check,then they should be legal

    Good job Texas!

    Welcome aboard the sanity train.

    Hopefully other States will join us soon.

    Not to hijack the thread, but FWIIW -- for some time now, we carry in General Assembly Building & property here in Virginia (open or concealed carry OK for CHP holders only).

    The General Assembly Building is where the legislator's offices are and the committee meetings are held (e.g., where we need to be to testify, lobby, etc to have a say as citizens).

    The grounds are available for both logistics, organizing the lobby teams, and holding the the rally (which was over 1000 folk this year).

    I've done it any number of times.

    Plan to join us next session.

    See: YouTube - VCDL Lobby Day 2010
    [Note the CPH entrance at about 1:07 into video.]

    BTW -- Once, I used one of my out-of-State carry permit just to see what they would do. No problem.

    IMHO - every State's legislator's offices and hearing rooms (and dang near all other public building) should be OK for carry.

    Along those lines, the despicable act of HOLDING LOCAL GOVERNMENT MEETINGS IN COURTHOUSES to avoid defensive carry may be coming to an end here, also.

    A few County Board of Supervisors, such as in Sussex, currently hold their public meetings in a courthouse at night when there are no "Courts" in session, which thus prohibits the otherwise lawful carry of self-defense handguns. During the session a not-to-be-named Delegate told VCDL about a bill that was totally unrelated to firearms that would help with that problem. VCDL kept a watch on it from a distance.

    The new law, effective July 1, prohibits public bodies from meeting anywhere that photographing, filming, recording, or otherwise reproducing any portion of an open meeting is not allowed.

    Hopefully that will make several public bodies move their meetings from courthouses to a more gun-friendly environment.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
