Thanks for taking the time to make the contact. For law abiding Texans, this is the most important legislation since the original concealed carry bill.

Who's next?

Done...

I anticipate and wholly expect him to sign it...as long as common sense prevails.

What does the final version of the bill look like? I heard that there had been several changes as it went along.

MEE TOO! I am keeping my fingers crossed! I have two questions.
1. What do you think the chances are that he will sighn it?
2. If he does sign it, when would it take effect and become law?

Here is a link to the bill that has been sent to Governor Perry for his signature:

http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs...f/SB00378I.pdf

P.S. I found that once it loads, if I reduce it to 125%, it is more readable.

I read in the Abilene paper today that Gov Perry likes the bill and is expected to sign it. I know that the opera is not over until the fat lady sings... but she is about to take the stage.

The Governor WILL sign it.

It will take effect Sept. 1.

he already stated he's going to sign it... so no worries on my part... i did however leave a message thanking him for allowing me to defend my life and property without fear of criminal charges/civil retaliation.

Hey question for you guys..

Since conception I've been reading the castle doctrine provides civil suit immunity so long as you are justified to begin with...

In reading the bill the only mention I see of this is "it is an affirmative defense to civil action..."

Is this the same thing? I always thought an "affirmative defense" meant you can still be sued, which causes all sorts of inconveniences and all, but unsuccessfully? Does this actually mean you WON'T be sued so long as the local LEO and prosecutors see no reason to file charges and say you were justified?

I've got little experience interpreting law, can ya tell? :D

Generally speaking, an affirmative defense is matter which, assuming the original complaint in the lawsuit be true, is a defense to it. It should be raised in the answer to a lawsuit.

I can't go much deeper without crossing the line from legal information to legal advice, but I think you can understand from the above what the answer to your questions are.

Found this with a Google search:

"Affirmative defenses are new or additional matters raised in the answer which state some independent reason why the plaintiff should be barred from recovering damages, even if everything alleged in the complaint is true."
