    Well - no CHL permit and a stolen gun.
    Nothing said about a stolen property charge - just he has a SEMI AUTO" gun
    Just gotta love it.

    I hate the media. Texas has no charge of "carrying a concealed weapon". :banghead:

    He had to have been charged with UCW.

    Regarding the stolen handgun; Texas also does not have a "possession of stolen property" charge. You have to be able to connect him in some way to the burglary or whatever resulted in the theft of the handgun.

    I imagine that the detectives are working to link him to the theft of the handgun and then charge him.

    "It is OK that you stole the gun you just can't be carrying the damn thing around. What is wrong with you boy?" future quote from the judge in that case. Why are the DA's everywhere going so easy on criminals, I know some prisons are over crowded but this is reticules. Some thug steals a gun and is only looking at the charge for carrying it, slap him with both charges and send him away to meet Big Bubba in the big house with the little rooms. :banghead:

    How can you make the connection that just because the gun had been reported stolen, that HE must have stolen it?

    It is not illegal to be in possession of stolen property.

    I guessed. And it is unlawful to knowingly take or receive stolen goods. And I thought I said something about the idea that the detective was gathering evidence to file a charge, But I looked over it again and I did not say anything about it. Sorry that is my mistake so lets judge me on my judgemental comment alone please.

    Yes txinvestigator you are correct, there is no evidence that he actually stole the gun. But you are taking the statement out of context. The first statement was meant to poke fun at lazy politically correct DA's, not to be taken as fact.

    Then it is still pertinent that the gun was stolen!
