Thread: Unlawful Carry Arrest

  1. #21
    It is a class A Misdemeanor; however, I'm wondering since I was in Texas would this go under their laws or mississippi's? I don't believe Texas can revoke a MS CHL but who's courts would the license be under if it were up for revocation?

    You will be charged and tried in Texas under Texas law in the Texas court system. Texas can suspend or revoke your carrying privileges in Texas by issuing an injunction against you. Just like they can suspend or revoke your driving privileges in Texas by issuing an injuction. The injunction against you will be a Texas court order valid in Texas only.

    Texas can also forward information regarding your arrest, formal charges and conviction to Mississippi and Mississippi can revoke or suspend your Mississippi license/permit to carry based upon the information that Texas provides to Mississippi.

    To the OP,
    What you do now is get a Texas lawyer.
    Can we bring up sheepdogs or CCW Badges instead? Those are always fun topics to discus or disgust if you will.

I do not believe anyone is really saying that a beer or a glass of wine or even a shot of whiskey are an absolute no no, but when you go above a standard--say 08--IMO you deserve the full weight of the law--that goes for driving and that goes for carrying. Responsibility and consequences--if anyone can argue with that, I feel sorry for them and have no sympathy.
    kelcarry is there any truth to the rumor that the folks who make Pop-tarts are coming out with a new Tums flavor due to your request? For as sour of a person as you are, I could believe it.

    Sorry about that. The guys have had a furious discussion about the whole drinking thing, you could not have known that. You just touched them off. I agree we should try to help not just bash people.

    Hey G: Don't like poptarts and do not use Tums. Apparently you have a problem with understanding that tolerant reactions to anyone who drinks beyond 08 and drives or walks around with a firearm, is not OK. FYI, several fellow forum members took the time to respond with "likes". Sour you say---common sense and responsible behavior is what I say. Don't like it, don't read it. Save your energy.

    Or maybe, just maybe, help a fellow gun owner/carrier to overcome his mistake and get on with his life with as little damage as possible?

    Hey NavyLCDR: Overcome his mistake? If he happens to be impaired one of these days and ends up shooting someone who was not causing him imminent danger or great bodily injury, it is probably a felony; it is the same as driving a car "drunk" and causing death by auto--that is manslaughter. Sorry, if you want to CC and you want to embrace the carrying of a firearm, your responsibility for drinking has taken a big turn upward--no room for a mistake without a consequence and a severe one at that. Don't agree--fine--just my opinion. End of story.
