    Imho, that's not a wrong way to do it.

    Which begs the question, does the property legally become someone else's when it is leased? I ask because this question always came up during the Premier Gun Shows held at the Freeman Auditorium which is owned by Bexar County. I fear that is the case, given that if a Federal entity leases property (such as a VA office), that property falls on the same rules (USC 18, Sec 930) as Federally-owned property. However, the distinction is that property is continuously leased for much longer periods (years vs. hours).

    Even if that were the case, I don't see how it could be legal to permanently display 30.06/30.07 signs when the property isn't under the control of the leaser. As for a 51% sign, there are definitive requirements that alcohol sales must constitute more than half of gross receipts for the location. I seriously doubt that over half of the Corpus Christi Aquarium's revenues are from the sale of alcohol...

    Ah, you miss the (evil) point...

    In reverse order: Of course the Aquarium doesn't make 51% or more of their money from the sale of the demon rum. However, the company that leases the space after hours does, and since the Aquarium's address is the "business" address of the after-hours company, the 51% sign is posted for the building 24/7 because TABC doesn't have "only posted in operational hours" caveats. It is all or nothing. Again, sneaky.

    The Dallas Zoo dodge ("leasing" management to a private company, then claiming the private company can put up signs on city property) is laid out on the TXAG website, if you read all the charges filed against various minor government entities and the resolutions.

    My own case, filed through the TXAG, is currently (along with many others) on hold until a leftist gun hating "judge" in Houston rules on the legality of the current law and the TXAG's interpretation of same. All pending cases are on hold, according to my AG contact, until that lawsuit against the state of Texas by Leftist Assweaselburg of Houston is settled. And...Assweaselburg is dragging their feet, hoping for the "blue wave" to push the at least nominally pretending to act as Republicans out of office before it can be ruled (and appealed, since any gun case in Houston can be predicted in .00001 seconds).

    Oh, I got your "evil" point (I know you all too well! ;)), I was just pontificating out loud how such things could happen in the great state of Texas...

    Too many Californians would be my guess...

    And I suspected you did, but took the opportunity to expand a bit in admiration. Just because they are evil, amoral bastards with the values of a rutting weasel on meth, doesn't mean that they are not...clever...
