Felt Good Knowing I Had My G27

Discussion in 'Carry Issues' started by frankr, Jul 27, 2012.

  1. Wife and I went to a summer concert this past weekend and because we got there after it started we had to park in the parking garage, third level. It ended around 9:30 PM, on the way back to the car we meet some friends of ours and decided to stop for some ice cream. Now it’s around 10:45 when my wife and I got back to our car and by now the garage is mostly empty. As we were walking to our car I noticed a car parked about five spaces down with four guys in it. My car was between them and us, as we walked to the car I hit my car remote to unlock the doors and as I did the lights came on. I opened the door for my wife and as I walked around the back of my car I noticed two of the guys looking at me. I made a motion like I was adjusting something under my shirt, got into the car, locked the doors and drove away. Nothing happened but I sure felt good knowing I had my G27 under my shirt.

    @ Just1More: Are you trying to make a point? Always carry, carry everywhere.

    So you carry even where it is illegal? I don't know what state you live in but here in TX that's a good way to lose your license and to go to jail.

    The places that you can carry legally very greatly from state to state. In Washington carrying to an outdoors music event is illegal if the event has over a set number of attendies. In Oregon however carrying to the same event is completely legal.

    Carrying a gun is like having insurance. You have it but may not ever need it. But, if the unthinkable happens, it can save the day and is worth everything you put into it over the years.

    Like insurance, let's hope that none of us ever need our guns for anything other than punching holes in paper.

    Why don't you just STFU with this crap already? When we talk about carrying our guns outside of our domiciles we make best faith efforts to ensure we are carrying legally.

    As big as you perceive Texas to be, your handgun carry laws are not in the "top 5", and there is a whole big carrying world outside of Texas.

    It is against forum rules to discuss ways on breaking or circumventing the letter of the law. When you see people posting about carrying in other people's private property, liquor stores, concerts, etc - don't freak out like a NYC native - it's legal for where we are posting from.

    Just so you know, TX carry laws are not all that good and they need a whole lot of tweaking before they're even on line with most of the US. Don't assume anyone else's state has the restrictions of TX.

    Off-limits places in PA and what makes them off-limits:
    1. Court Facilities - PA Title 18, Chapter 9, Subsection 913
    2a.*Grounds and buildings of Elementary and Secondary schools(K-12 grades), whether the school is private or public. There is an affirmative defense for "other lawful purposes" however there is no case law determining on what that includes. To be safe, its wiser to assume it does not include our carrying "rights". - PA Title 18, Chapter 9, Subsection 912
    2b. Within 1000ft of a school unless you have a license/permit issued by the state in which the school is located - US Title 18, Part I, Chapter 44, Subsection 922(q)
    3. Casinos - by regulation Title 58, Part VII, Chapter 465, Subsection 465a.13
    4. Certain Department of State buildings - by regulation
    5. ****Places off-limits by Federal Law or regulation, IE: military installations(exceptions for hunting at some bases), Federal Government buildings, after the security check point in airports,etc.
    6. Any private property where a landowner, tenant or person so authorized to maintain property has asked you to leave because you are carrying, or where the property owner or tenant has placed signs or placards denoting that guns are forbidden - Title 18, Chapter 35, Subsection 3503
    7. Detention facilities, correctional institutes, or mental hospitals - Title 18, Chapter 51, Subsection 5122

    Many people do every day in many states.

    Besides, I kinda got the impression the OP was at a concert with the opening:

    Yeah... I was surprised at how restrictive Texas laws are (compared to Florida). It seems on the gun forums, many people assume the rest of the country is the same as their own states' laws.

    That underscores the importance of knowing the laws of other states (with CCW reciprocity) in which you may be traveling (and carrying).

    ...and me being the lucky SOB I am, I get to carry in many concert venues where other CCWers from those states cannot. :supergrin: (I did not say ALL venues!)

    As a resident Texan, I'd like to know what part of the Texas Penal code restricts you from carrying at a concert?

    To all those bashing Texas, I don't believe there is any restriction regarding carrying to a concert. I would carry if going to one.

    I just brushed up on the Texas CHL handbook, and I don't see any restriction. But, if I'm wrong, please tell me where it's at in the penal code.

    This is the part of the that I was shown by a PA. District Magistrate when I specifically asked him about being armed when I had to pick up or drop off my kids at school/events, he also added its better to be on you there than leaving it your car in a school parking lot because of "posible mischief" by students.

    § 912. Possession of weapon on school property.

    1. Definition. -- Notwithstanding the definition of "weapon" in section 907 (relating to possessing instruments of crime), "weapon" for purposes of this section shall include but not be limited to any knife, cutting instrument, cutting tool, nun-chuck stick, firearm, shotgun, rifle and any other tool, instrument or implement capable of inflicting serious bodily injury.
    2. Offense defined. -- A person commits a misdemeanor of the first degree if he possesses a weapon in the buildings of, on the grounds of, or in any conveyance providing transportation to or from any elementary or secondary publicly-funded educational institution, any elementary or secondary private school licensed by the Department of Education or any elementary or secondary parochial school.
    3. Defense. -- It shall be a defense that the weapon is possessed and used in conjunction with a lawful supervised school activity or course or is possessed for other lawful purpose.
    ADIVSORY NOTE: At the time of this update, there has been thus far no court cases interpreting "possessed for other lawful purpose" insofar as applied to those licensed under §6109, exempted under §6106(b), or open carrying on foot without the benefit of being licensed or exempted on school grounds. However, common sense would dictate that if "self defense" is a valid and lawful reason for purpose of obtaining a PA LTCF than it should also be a "lawful purpose" per this statute's exceptions.

    Wow, that's one of the biggest sharp turns from nowhere I've ever seen.

    Obviously I've missed anything about them being at a school. I was thinking it was at a concert hall or amphitheater type venue.
  18. Cool it guys let me clarify and I apologize. This was an outdoor summer concert in the park. You know you take your bag chairs and sit under a tree. And as far as being legal I have a license to carry firearms. And who said anything about a school, man talk about jumping to conclusions.

    A PARK!?!?! Didn't you know in East Timbuktuastan it's illegal to have a firearm in a park, therefore you should be thrown in jail for the rest of your life and just for good measure your children should be jailed too!

    That you weren't in East Timbuktuastan shouldn't matter in the least.

    Not trying to step on any toes. I just wanted to add the part about the schools in PA. because everyone thinks their forbiden, and according to that there not. Thats why I asked the Magistrate a couple years ago. Because when I first got my permit 25+ years ago there wasnt much info from the sherif about were you could and couldnt carry in PA or or the laws in general.
