    Even if he mostly never uses it, it seems that having the permit just in case he may want to use it sometime would be the better choice.

    I agree. Your friend should also try to convince his wife to get her CCW. If he has a CCW and for some reason he gets injured and she needs to take possession of the gun, then she will be able to legally CCW until she gets home with the gun. Especially if they're on vacation in another state.

    CCW's are cheap, lawyers are expensive.

    It is best to get your CCW unless you like ending up in court spending hundreds or may be even thousands on a defense lawyer. My days of taking unnecessary risks are long gone.

    He has the same attitude as the people that flock to the gunshop when the rioting starts only to find the authorities have banned the sale of guns.

    Get it before you need it.

    Well if that is all the man does in life.. I guess a permit may not afford him much in the way of extra ability. One the other hand, most people have a life outside of work and school.

    He is a defeatist. I would stop associating with him.

    Your signature indicates Houston. I know of no gun laws here in TX that ban carry in a day care unless it's posted with a properly worded and formatted 30.06 sign. Even if it were, since your wife runs it, as you indicate, she can simply write you a notarized letter giving you permission to disregard that posting (if it existed).

    Unless I am mistaken, and if I am someone please show me how I am... day cares are not schools, and therefore do not fall under the school gun free zone rules in TX

    A childcare center is a school according to the state.

    They do not require a 30.06, but they do politely post a reminder that its a felony.


    Texas Penal Code 46.03 just says "on the physical premises of a school or educational institution"

    Texas Penal Code 46.11(c)(2) "School" means a private or public elementary school or secondary school.

    Texas Education Code Title 2 Subtitle A Chapter 5
    5.001 Definitions
    (6-a) "Private school" means a school that:
    (A) offers a course of instruction for students in one or more grades from prekindergarten through grade 12; and
    (B) is not operated by a governmental agency.

    Most childcare centers are a "Private school" that cover Pre-K curricula... And in my wife's case, absolutely Pre-K.

    Not all cover Pre-K, so I think that is the only critical difference.

    Lots of good reasons for getting a concealed carry licenses.

    Here in Michigan we now have well over 414,000 CPL's issued.

    Can you imagine how much effect that many voters could have in changing laws and/or electing pro gun candidates to office?

    With MILLIONS of law-abiding citizens holding carry licenses, it won't long (just a bit of solidarity) until we'll be able to change things in D.C.
