    we continue to hear or see these type of things happen on a regular basis. In fact here in Tx our first test after chl was allowed involved a road rage incident. The aggressor got out of his car at a light, walked back to the victims car and reached in and tried to beat the daylights out of him. The victim grabbed his weapon and shot the aggressor on the spot. The victim was not charged (gotta love Tx) and released.

    So glad that the castle doctrine in Tx extended to cars for those that do not have chl.

    Moral of the story - if you are going to waive make sure its just a finger lol

    Good point. Both may have been guilty of assult and they agreed not to file against each other. That happens quite often.

    You Sir are ill informed.

    MN does NOT have a "Stand your ground law" You still have a duty to retreat when possible. We do have a Castle doctrine that is effective within the confines of your home's walls though.

    Texas whoops most other states when it comes to "Stand Your Ground" law's and their "castle doctrine" is second to none. However the restrictions on carry in Texas suck. For example in Tx, if you print, can loose your permit. Not so in MN, we allow open carry on a permit, where as Tx does not allow for OC with a handgun.


    As far as signage goes, it's really a moot point since the signs carry no weight of law. However if you're going to bring it up, you may as well post the real facts, such as the sign must be 187 square INCHES and placed no lower than 4' and no higher than 6' and within 4' laterally of all enterances. The sign must also use arial font of at leat 1.5" in height in a contrasting back round, so in other words, black letters, white back round.

    I'd love to know where you got your instruction from, and where you're keeping up on the laws. Please send me a PM.
