    Rather than being judgmental and "holier than thou", what does the Texas statute say?

    Government Code 411.173:
    (b) The governor shall negotiate an agreement with any other state that provides for the issuance of a license to carry a concealed handgun under which a license issued by the other state is recognized in this state or shall issue a proclamation that a license issued by the other state is recognized in this state if the attorney general of the State of Texas determines that a background check of each applicant for a license issued by that state is initiated by state or local authorities or an agent of the state or local authorities before the license is issued. For purposes of this subsection, "background check" means a search of the National Crime Information Center database and the Interstate Identification Index maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    (c) The attorney general of the State of Texas shall annually:

    (1) submit a report to the governor, lieutenant governor, and speaker of the house of representatives listing the states the attorney general has determined qualify for recognition under Subsection (b); and

    (2) review the statutes of states that the attorney general has determined do not qualify for recognition under Subsection (b) to determine the changes to their statutes that are necessary to qualify for recognition under that subsection.

    (d) The attorney general of the State of Texas shall submit the report required by Subsection (c)(1) not later than January 1 of each calendar year.
    GOVERNMENT CODE**CHAPTER 411. DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY OF THE STATE OF TEXAS

    I don't see anything in that statute that says a license from another state that honors the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution more than Texas does is invalid because a Texas resident holds that license. Further evidence of this is here:

    Get yourself a Florida or Utah license until Texas actually recognizes the US Constitution.

    Flame away...

I guess you guys on here have never had anything go wrong? Glad you aren't the ones deciding whether or not I can purchase a firearm... Just think about how ridiculious it would be if you had a bad check because of a banking error, and it cost you an arrest, should you loose your privlege to carry? I don't think so. But you are entitled to your opinion.
    You didn't ask if we thought it was right or not.

    i would look into the fact that texas will honor another states while ur resident of texas... i know if your a resident or work in Indiana, you must have there license to carry then... just my 2 cents

    Thanks for the friendly advice to those who posted some. I thought after the 1st 3 or 4 posts I was mistakenly on a Liberal anti-gun website. Anyway, I will look into the Flordia permit, as per I do have one active duty air force officer friend that has a Flordia permit, and is now getting a Texas one as well.
    For those that didn't read my 1st post correctly- I have served my 5 years without for the hunting from a vehicle incident (which by the way, happens a lot down here in Texas- not that its right- I'm just saying....) It is the class B arrest which is screwing me. I would hardly consider myself a criminal.

    How about we let you have a gun but don't let you ever drive or hunt or have a checking account again?

    i might be okay without the checking account- since the banks direct deposit foobar is what burned me on the hot check thing... I already can carry legally in my vehicle in Texas thanks to our Castle Doctine signed into law by Gov. Perry in 2007, just don't have a permit to keep it on my person..

    My point was your problems involved irresponsibility with a checking account, a vehicle and hunting. They did not involve irresponsibility with a self-defense firearm.

    For example, I think it is inappropriate to deny a tax felon a permit for a self-defense weapon. A denial of a right to own weapon for self defense should be more closely related to matters involving ownership of a weapon.

    I also think that it is inappropriate for a veteran who was dishonorably discharged for violating the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy to be denied a carry permit.
