    So if the gun was clean and no pot found on him and he wasnt high why bring him in so he wasn't operating the vehicle under a substance what did they even arrest him?

    Maybe all of that information was not readily apparent at the time of the arrest.

    Gun laws in Texas, absent a CHL, generally only allow for "Defense to prosecution". Travelling a certain distance, travelling to an event or location where the firearm is to be used (i.e., a gun range), the gun being secured, all these things can only be used as a defense. They do not prevent an officer from making an arrest. Texas law also does not differentiate between loaded and unloaded firearms. Ergo, gun + pot in the same car, the officer will always make an arrest and let the system figure it out.

    This is why I feel EVERYONE who has a handgun should get their CHL, even if they never intend to carry. Of course, with pot involved, he was still screwed.

    If I were advising a young man about to start an NFL career, I think Rule One would be: NEVER allow your friends to get into your car. Or put anything in your car. Or touch it. Or even look at it.

    Actually, this would be Rule One-A. Rule One would be: NOTHING GOOD EVER HAPPENS in a strip club parking lot, so don't go there.

    I have my LTC, so I'm not sure, but I believe the law changed a couple of years ago, allowing one to have have a handgun in your car without an LTC. The antiquated "traveling" requirement was discarded. I can't figure out why he was charged with the weapons violation either. Surely his lawyer is giving us the whole story. :confused2: Oh wait...

    maybe it's a tack on drug law? possession of mj - break law 1. have gun while in possession (even if legal gun) - break law 2.
