With people focusing so intently on mass shootings (the fear that drove Texas to this legislation), we seem to be forgetting about impulse homicide, accidental shootings, accidental discharge injuries, or even suicide.
Fair warning. Today’s blog is inspired by my frustration. This is for me to vent; I invite you to play along.
if you do use your weapon, even in self-defense, you will be arrested. There is no “if” or “but”, whether or not your attacker survives or escapes.
you have to register your handgun with the police but gun permits are issued by the Sheriff's Department. You cannot register your handgun with the police until you have a gun permit from the Sheriff's Department. If this sounds convoluted to you , I would completely agree but it gets worse than that.
