Been seeing a lot of gatherings and such. Lunches, shoots, dinners, Hun farm event. So do I just show up and say hi? How will I know whom to say hi to?
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 10:22:58 AM EDT
Just show up at one of the gatherings and ask, "I'm looking for the DFW Crew", that's all there is to it. Also, if you like, get your contact info to Bung and he will put you on the Texas Contacts roster.

Yep, just show up and say hi.

For the gun show lunches, we usually meet at a certain spot, and any thread will show that spot.

Contact bung with your info, and h'll get you on the list.

Welcome

he says when he gets to it, he'll look it up. its not high on his priority list. ofcourse arguing with a 15yr veteran of the Houston Police Dept. isnt the brightest thing...but i'll bring you the penal code on the 4th if your up there.

someone mentioned that more peeps would be up on the 4th anyway. plus there always is more people on the forth. plus fireworks!!! yeah i cant wait!

Just because he's a 15yr veteran does not mean he has every law memorized exactly as written-- I wouldn't expect him to anyway.

As for Ch46 of the TX penal code: already have a copy-- (it still hasn't changed) -- no definition of the word.

All the Texas statues can be found here: www.capitol.state.tx.us/statutes/statutes.html

You can access the search function from that page.

What word are you trying to find the definition of? I have access to Lexis-Nexis.

Where is the Hun's farm located? I doubt I can go this weekend unless it's not too far from Dallas as Sunday is my wife's birthday.

Yes, I know where the TX statutes can be found. They can also be found on various legal sites, but I go to the source: which happens to be the link you listed above.

The word "travelling" seems to be one of those terms which is not clearly defined in the TX Penal code (Ch. 46), which applies to concealing a handgun. Citbria & dad seem to think it is defined in the TX penal code, but I have yet to find it (since its not really there). They believe that it is defined as crossing three county lines-- I've heard this before, but it can never be confirmed in the statutes I have searched.

On another thread a while back, someone mentioned that maybe case-law has defined this (I think it was jadams(?) in Austin, or was it johninaustin?? I forget.), but I can never find where to look this information up...

Actually your right and wrong at the same time. since his retirment in 1995 the law has changed. your right the 3 counties are not there. It did used to be there and i can show you that since one of the law books he has is from 95. but it has been removed. now it reads that you may carry if you are going to certain places. IE: gunshows, shooting range, and back home. But carrying it without a Concealed weapon permit is still illeagle weither its one county or from here to san antonio. hope that was clear enough...if its not, i'll tell him to write a responce in his own words.

I think it might be found on either the DPS site or the Attorney General's site in the form of an AG opinion.

The definition of "travelling" as it has been explained to me is when crossing 2 or more county lines and staying over night.

Travelling and carrying a large sun of cash are still affirmative defenses for carrying concealed in Texas. The CHL law did not repeal those. BTW, a "large sum of cash" is a relative term. There is no defined amount. There was a case in Waco where a homeless guy got off because he was carrying $5! For him $5 was a large sum of cash.



It seems the Hun's farm location is some kind of secret as I've asked the question as well as seen others ask but have yet to see an answer... how about what county is it in?

I am not really asking him for the response: I am asking you.

You both stated it was there and clearly defined within the TX Penal Code. I stated it was not. I don't care what the law books stated 8+ years ago. We were talking about now and within the past couple years... A lot can change since then.

I've heard several variants of the 2+ county rule.
1. 3 county lines
2. 2 or more county lines
3. 2/3 county lines, must stay overnight
4. Only if you have a large sum of cash, which might also be considered drug money since they cops can say whatever they like...
5. Must be going directly to a place where the firearm will be usd legally, i.e. shooting range, gun store, etc.
6. etc. etc.

...each cop has his own opinion of what the law is, which is why I would like to know EXACTLY who is right.

Actually, I looked it up just now, and you are incorrect about how it reads as of today. It still reads pretty much the same as I was thinking.

knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his person a handgun,
illegal knife, or club.

(b) Except as provided by Subsection (c), an offense under

(2) an employee of a penal institution.

PS: I am not 100% sure, but it *looks* like the "is traveling" text in section 46.15.b.3 was never ammended, as you will see other text lines will state when they were changed and with which session of the legislature. Therefore, this section should still be the same in law books dated in 1995.

Well, unfortunately you are WRONG. Case law is used in courts all of the time. However, using case law is illegal because judges cannot legislate, but there is no Judicial Accountability so they get away with it.

Don't mind the hijack cause its a good topic.

Bear in mind that "travelling" provision is a right to defense. It is not a right to carry. Meaning that if caught you will still be charged a felony unlicensed carry of handgun and your handgun confistacated. You will then have to prove in court that you are "travelling"

Why not just get a CHL. This is a "shall issue" state just in case you guys don't know already his
If you are under 21, just carry a shotgun with you. Hell you can open carry that is most cities and towns in TX.

But the law clearly states in 46.15 that if traveling, that unlawful carry 46.02 does not apply.


46.02. Unlawful Carrying Weapons

(a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally,
knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his person a handgun
,
illegal knife, or club.


46.15. Nonapplicability
...
(b) Section 46.02 does not apply to a person who:
...
(3) is traveling;


BTW: If you are traveling, this means that not only can you carry handguns, but you can also carry automatic knives, including butterfly knives, baseball bats, etc.

Notice in 46.02a, that if you are carrying it recklessly, that 46.15 (not just traveling, but other circumstances too) is a defense to prosecution too! hehe...

The 2nd Amendment trumps all those laws. Carry it anyway.

Why not just get a CHL. This is a "shall issue" state just in case you guys don't know already Look at it this way. Spend $150 + class fee for a CHL. Or spend $500+ for court cost and lawyer fees defending yourself for "traveling". Not to mention time off from work.

The word "travelling" seems to be one of those terms which is not clearly defined in the TX Penal code (Ch. 46), which applies to concealing a handgun. Citbria & dad seem to think it is defined in the TX penal code, but I have yet to find it (since its not really there). They believe that it is defined as crossing three county lines-- I've heard this before, but it can never be confirmed in the statutes I have searched..



It is not there and it has not been there since I moved to Texas 15 years ago. I doubt it was ever there, but cannot prove it. It is true Chapter 46 was re-organized in the mid-1990s, moving the defenses to prosecution from sub-sections of 46.02 & 46.03 to their own section in 46.15. But travelling has never been defined in the PC.

Where it does get defined is in the dozens of Case Law Decisions over the past 100 years. In each of these Cases, a Judge rules that Scenarios X is or is not "traveling". ANd so these get passed on. Here are some I know, of

1905 ~ __Fitzgerald v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that a person who carries a pistol to and from a shop to have it repaired is not in violation of the state law prohibiting the carrying of weapons.

1912 ~ __Kellum v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that upon obtaining a pistol, one may carry it home by the nearest practicable route and not be in violation of the state law prohibiting the carrying of weapons.

1916 ~ __Wagner v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that a pistol is "about" one's person if the pistol can be reached without materially changing one's position.

1938 ~ __Davis v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that nonhabitual carrying of a pistol between one's home and one's place of business is lawful if it is for a legitimate purpose.

1945 ~ __Smith v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that one has a right to carry a pistol from his place of business to his home as long as one does not do so habitually.

1952 ~ __Henson v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that one is in violation of state law if one delays while transporting a pistol to or from a place of repair.

1958 ~ __Boyett v. State__: The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that one's right to carry a pistol between his place of business and his home, when he has on his person a large amount of money, is destroyed if one deviates from the most direct route or stops more than momentarily.

There are hundreds more. I suggest
"The Right to Bear Arms in Texas: The Intent of the Framers of the Bill of Rights," by Stephen Halbrook, __Baylor Law Review__ (Vol. 41, 1989). for further reading.

Ummm... what I posted IS the current written law. However, many court cases seem to have various decisions on various laws, including the one we are currently discussing regarding "Traveling."

How can anybody know and obey all of the CURRENT WRITTEN laws when there are many case-laws that contradict the current laws, or have various decisions/outcomes?

The way I see it, if I follow and believe what the TX Penal Code states, then how can I be wrong? Afterall, this information is published so that I may know the CURRENT laws-- and judges can't legislate.

Thanks RenegadeX, I knew it wasn't listed in the Penal Code.

Case laws are very interesting...

the law is open to interpretation. your interpretation is wrong to most cops. if I were you when you get stopped, I wouldn't be all "I know the law and that's how it is!" that's one way to get your ass thrown in jail.

you might beat the wrap...but you wont beat the ride.

Amen!!! Getting your ass out of jail will cost you more than its worth.

Why even bother with the "traveling laws" TX is a shall issue state. If you have your CHL, no worries. Carry whenever you want.

See, that is one fine example of the cops breaking the laws. Often times I hear them say, "You can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride." An arrest in this case is obvious that the officer INTENDS to HARASS the law-abiding citizen.

I disagree. Is it worth losing your rights or having to pay to get a "permit" to exercise your rights??
The 2nd Amendment trumps these laws. The 2nd Amentment is very clear.
Ignoring the 2nd Amendment for arguments sake, the Texas law is clear. According to Webster's the definition is clear and the law is clear.
It is the fuckers that harass you that want to muddy the definitions.
(btw: "travel" means to go from one place to another)

So LT, the ones that DO NOT pay as much taxes get a discount on their permit to exercise their rights?
Disgusting.
