Thinking of getting a CHL. I have nothing in my past to disqualify me but I have someone who lives in my home (relative) who does have a felony (non violent) record. Do the laws of being around a weapon affect this person IF I am the owner of record on the weapons? I am the CHL holder? What if this person HAS to use the weapon in self defense in a home invasion? I know I'm not talking to lawyers (I think) here but as I understand it after 5 years of the punishment expiring Texas has no problem with it but the Feds don't care about Texas law and still have a no excuses "can't be in possession" of a firearm code. What does possession mean? Buying? Ownership? Or simply picking it up while a burglar/rapist is trying to kill and blowing them to Kingdom Come? Sure hate to think someone would get in trouble after cleaning up their life and living right just b/c they want to protect themselves or family. Anyone with stories or information?
