When do you know that Texas police and prosecutors are not following the law?

When the Texas NRA and Texas ACLU create a joint report in support of legislation in an effort to stop them.

The report, “Above the Law: How Texas prosecutors are placing their own judgment over that of the Legislature and the law of the land,†found that district and county attorneys had instructed police officers to “unnecessarily†interrogate drivers and arrest them or take their weapons, “even if they are legally carrying the gun.â€
The legislation to fix it... again.

A bill before the Texas House would treat personal vehicles like homes, where people are entitled to keep handguns without a license. It would create an exception to the handgun ban for anyone “inside of or directly en route to a motor vehicle†owned by the person or under his control.
Hmmm, sounds like HB 89

It is already the law there that when "traveling" one may carry in the car, but some local prosecutors have been publicizing that they will arrest anyway. There are posts on PDO about this pretty frequently.


Odd that the ACLU joined it, but welcome.

Did you see the comment about "profiling?" :lol:
