I'm a CHL holder...the very first day I put my license in my wallet and my gun into my holster, I realized I needed one more thing... the name and number of a good, experienced LAWYER.
I live in Texas, in Dallas County, and here...the local district attorney has instructed his leo's a standard procedure for almost every single self-defense shooting..."Take em to jail and send em to the Grand Jury!!".
Move out of Dallas county?
Yoda, I am, yes.
I'm in agreement with Yoda.
The most exhilarating thing in life is getting shot at with no results.

On this Forum, in the blue bar go to "Forum Help & Extras." You will find a list of CCW attorneys listed by state. There is an attorney on that list for Dallas.

Can I ask where you got that info? I was a cop here for many years and still know a lot of them. My LEO friends say they have never heard such a thing. A shooting that goes down in a self-defense situation is a lawful shoot. That DA wouldn't make it long here.

The DA does not have LEO's working for them. They have investigators but nothing more.

The firm of Burleson, Pate & Gibson in Dallas has lawyers listed in "Best Lawyers in America" under criminal defense.
To the OP, I believe you have been misinformed. Possibly a scare tactic.
You will be hand cuffed and taken to the station (debriefed)...maybe stay the night, but ONLY if it was a justifiable shoot, all FACTS point that out? You have little worries.
Had a man down my street kill another. Was a good shoot, and he never had any jail time. Just had to go to the station (in cuffs) was debriefed, and was home the next day.
I'm in Tarrant county.

I hope the DA never has to use his gun in a SD situation.
Of course he has a gun. Don't most people in Texas?
I dont care much for Dallas and try to avoid it. I live near it. But, thanks for the heads up. You wouldnt want to go to 3/4 of Dallas without a gun, thats for sure. I was born in texas, but have always avoided Dallas. Again, the law abiding man gets treated like a gangsta. That is all...
Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......
