Texas does it Right !! (SB112)

Senator John Carona of Dallas passed a bill that would prevent law enforcement officers from confiscating fire arms from lawful owners during times of emergency. He said this legislation stems from concern that during emergencies, such as Hurricane Rita in 2005, gun owners who aren't breaking any laws are having their firearms taken by police without cause. Senate Bill 112 would prohibit this, unless the weapon is evidence in a criminal investigation, or the owner is breaking the law.


I am LE and heard incidents/reports of this happening after Rita. (Though it was total crap Thank God I live in a State that recognizes that citizens should be allowed to protect themselves and their property in times of crisis from the parasites of our society.

I thought such a law already passed, and just took effect. I'll try to look in my Penal Code updates.

I'm not sure f your question but re-read the new law..
LE cannot confiscate firearms from people as what happened in before and after the hurricane.. unless the person in possesion of he firearm is doing something illegal.

This basically guarantees homeowners and business owners the Right to protect themselves after a disaster..

I read the law and I agree with it, but if they try to take my firearm, do I just tell them they can't because its unlawful, or do I have a legal right to use force to prevent confiscation?
