    It took tragedies and common sense. Lawmakers getting robbed and mass shootings like at Luby's to really get ball rolling other than just regular public outcry.

    Agreed. Look how fast the carjackings plummeted after the MPA was enacted.

    When I'm driving its wedged between the seats for easy access.
    Plenty time to slide it under the console if I get stopped (twice now)

    The last time a cop gave me "legal advice" on open carry he was dead wrong.

    I read the law as it was signed by Gov Perry and the cop, a rookie, directly contradicted the law.

    So don't get all excited on what a cop says, read the law, it's easy.

    A cop can be dead wrong... he can still issue a ticket or arrest you based on his wrong interpretation of any law. Then it's up to you to mount the defense against that prosection. If you're right, it will be dismissed. If you MAY be right, then it may be up to a judge and jury to decide. Yes, READ THE LAW AND BE FAMILIAR WITH ALL OF IT if you want to carry. But don't dismiss LEO because they're wrong. You can beat the rap... but you can't beat the ride.

    Who said I dismissed the cop? I listened to what he said and stored it away as a lesson learned, cops don't always know the law.

    Texas is surprising in that only recently have idiot weapon-laws been written out of the books. Not long ago, you could only carry a weapon in your vehicle passenger area if you were traveling from one county to another! This was easily rectified by living in the corner of four separate counties, or - always deciding that you needed to do something far away. (This is why you politely tell LEO's that you have nothing to say no matter why they pull you over - let your lawyer handle that.) The 99% of the great, hard-working police we have understand this; don't let the 1% bully you into talking. But, now all the Californians and immigrants planted by Obama are turning Texas purple and soon to be blue again. If it goes, I am afraid the Country will be lost.
