Need Texas Law Interpretation
I have the Texas laws; I know where to access the current regulations.
Looking for a resource to answer simple questions in plain language about Texas gun laws, especially CHL rules.
If anyone wants to bite, here are some of the questions.
Bonus points for case law or citing how the regulations support your answer.
-does it say in the regs that you CAN carry concealed in the vehicle, or does it only give restrictions?
-is there civil law (case law, I suppose) supporting the statement that if someone steals your gun (a.properly stored and b. not properly stored) then you are liable for the damage it may cause? Not the kid protection laws....if a BG steals your gun from a locked box, is there law to support or refute the statement?
(while on that topic, so many believe this I know folks who immediately report guns stolen, right after they purchase them. No need to warn me of the hazard of doing this.)
-is a gun securely stored if it is out of sight and in a locked vehicle? Or does it need to be in a locked box to be considered securely stored?
-someone is saying the regs changed recently and anyone can have a loaded, accessible firearm in the car CHL or no.
