    Under Texas law, with only limited exceptions, government buildings cannot prohibit the carry of guns.

    This city is claiming their city hall is also a courthouse and thus able to prohibit firearms, there are currently court cases in Texas to settle this issue. Our AG has put out his opinion that multipurpose courthouses cannot prohibit guns except in the courtroom and the judicial offices. That being said an actual firearm was not even carried into this building and the way the arrest and the search were done to have been done maliciously.

    What do you suppose the actual purpose of all that was?

    Here’s what I’m inclined to think about a lot of these pro-2A “activists”. First, I fully understand what they’re trying to accomplish AND it’s a laudable notion (IMHO).

    Perhaps it takes their physical involvement to establish an “injured party” so that resultant lawsuits ‘have standing’ in a court of law. Be that as it may, they can (& should) expect every manner of forcible pushback from government entities (most especially, the police force). After all, it’s typically their authority that’s being challenged.

    But ultimately it’s only “the financial hurt” - brought about by lawsuits - that is going to change the behavior of the government bureaucracy. And even that may be a relatively slow and indirect process.

    Some may say that won’t accomplish anything since it’s not really their money: it’s the taxpayers’ money that will pay the lawsuit reparations. Well, that may be true BUT taxpayers vote. And eventually they will ‘vote out’ those government officials who continue to make poor decisions which result in their tax money being wasted to pay for lost lawsuits. That’s why I say it may be a relatively slow and indirect process - but it’s ultimately self-correcting (assuming the necessary lawsuits are filed and won).

    For everything that is unlawful or unconstitutional for an elected official or bureaucrat to do, or not do, there needs to be a criminal penalty. Or there is no incentive to do the right thing.

    Drama... he wasn't SWATted, he was arrested.

    Maybe a wrongful arrest, but it wasn't a SWATting.

    This was not the best way to accomplish his goal.
