    Noting this part of the article;

    In Texas, you can openly carry guns in public, but there are rules.

    If you’re carrying long guns and rifles, it must be done in a safe, non-threatening manner. You don’t need a license.

    For a handgun, you can carry it openly, but you need a license. Handguns must be carried in a shoulder or belt holster.


    I think the issue was two fold. First, he did have a warrant, and secondly, he left weapons unattended in the park.

    That's all I have, if there happens to be a follow-up article, we'll see what charges actually stick.

    I read the OP, then I read the article, and honestly I don't see what the issue is.

    The man wasn't arrested for having multiple guns. The article states "Broesche was taken into custody and charged with two counts of unlicensed carrying of a weapon for a pistol and a baton found in his possession. Police say Broesche also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Harris County." Add that he left an AR and 30 round mag unattended in a public park where I'm assuming there isn't a shooting range and probably no hunting allowed.

    Should the cops have left this guy alone with no actions taken? I don't understand how arresting this guy is an issue.
    I've been by that park twenty times (if not more), & there's NO shooting range around, & as to hunting, AIN'T NO HUNTING going on miles from there!

    On the surface red flag laws would seem to be a good idea, but there’s no doubt in my mind about the abuse that will occur.

It looks like all somebody have to do is to see you with a gun and call the police and they can get a search warrant and search your home for weapons.

    I don't know how many guns you have to have to be considered a danger to society. One guy in Texas got out of his car at a park and people saw that he had a handgun so they called the police who nabbed him for having a handgun, extra magazine, two knives and a baton. He also had black gloves so maybe that is really what tipped those people off that he was a potential serial killer. Nobody in their right mind has black gloves. He led them to an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine.

    So I'm thinking that basically somebody actually only saw a guy with one gun and said "WOW I'M SCARED" because they saw a gun. It looks like there must be a law against having more than one gun and several boxes of ammo. Or maybe it is the combination of a gun and a knife. Or a baton and black gloves. Probably the extra magazine-- why would anybody need to carry an extra magazine?
    I wear black leather gloves in the winter. Does that make me a serial killer?

    How about the black rubber gloves I use when working on cars? I carry some of those in my car for emergencies. Do you draw the same serial killer conclusion for me since I have a gun and black gloves in my car?

    If I were to break down and I pulled into a parking lot to try to fix my car I'd have on those black rubber gloves and a gun would be on my hip. Should I be MWAG'd?

    Police did a good job. The perp was carrying unlicensed guns and had an outstanding warrant. Did not read anything about having too many guns as reason for arrest. As for responding to a man with a gun call, I say better safe than sorry in this day and age. Precaution can save lives and can be done properly as in this case.

    .................and abuse WILL occur.
    problem is, people will use this vindictively after any kind of heated argument or disagreement.
    this is yet another reason to keep your stuff private.
    ...........but you can't always do that with a girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband.
    and what about the people making the decision to seize the gun?
    liberal judge, police chief, commissioner, prosecutor?
    who, and on what basis, ultimately makes that decision?

    My answer is "I don't know how many guns I have. I've never counted them." Am I the only person on this forum who can't say exactly how many guns I have? I have an inventory, but I've never counted the guns on it either, much less each gun in the safe and house.

    If you put that inventory on a spreadsheet (like Excel type) it will count them for you. That is, if you use one line per gun.

    Or perhaps you really do not want to know (for spousal reasons?)

    This is why they want red Flag laws. And they will apply it.

    Indeed, it was poor writing on my part. I think this quote fro the article make it clearer than I did.
