If you have a concealed handgun liscense you can carry a gun into the capital building in Austin. The laws were written here to still keep those individual freedoms that were granted to you and your personal property. But that freedom comes with a price, cause youre not the only one carrying a gun here. It kinda acts as a deterrent for criminals here because you never know if that little old lady you might be targeting for a purse snatching has a .38 under her blouse to blow you away with.

Having said that, there is always crime anywhere you go. You just need to figure out where you best feel safe and how you wish to protect yourself, family and property. I like where i live and i enjoy my 6 rifles, 3 shotguns, and 3 handguns knowing that if i hear a noise of glass breaking that i can have the barrel on the target within a few seconds biggrin.gif

Do you guys still need a license to have a gun? (not concealed) Like if you just have a rifle in your house.

Not at all. If youre 18 and over you can go buy a rifle or shotgun. And if youre 21 or older you can buy a handgun just as long as you haven't been convicted of a felony

Sounds like Pennsylvania. Walk into Walmart with your driver's license and pick out your new toy.

Now NJ, on the other hand, they don't like guns as much. Permits, waiting periods, background checks, etc.

I think they get away with most of it as "hunting equipment". Obviously you can't get anything too deadly.

The cool thing is knowing mechanical engineers who manufacture their own parts for certain weapons. Especially when it comes to converting some to automatics. The Aggie Education for you lol

If you snatch that purse, can that lady legally blow out your brains (if she has a license)?

And as for storing guns and ammo at home, do you have to lock away anything? Can you hang a loaded gun on the wall?

Laws are strict here, both guns and ammo must be locked away in special safes.

lol no you don't need a license to kill, no pun intended, well yes pun intended. She can legally blow you away if she felt her life threatened, but she might be charged with concealing a handgun without a license, depends on the police who arrived on the scene, the D.A. and the community outcry, whether they back her in her right, or not. They might over look it but thats a matter you take up with a lawyer, im not one yet.

As for the guns and ammo in my home, no i do not have a lock or have them stored away, but then again i have no children here to worry about playing with them. I do know of a few people who repowder their own cartridges and they have it like in their living room. But they are hardcore gun enthusiasts. I could hang a loaded gun on my wall if i felt like it but i wouldn't exactly feel safe with it hanging there. Never know when a crack of thunder could raddle the wall and it falls and goes off.

As strict as NJ is, I don't think there's any laws about home storage. Obviously they tell you to lock it up safe away from children and such but I can't seem to find an actual law about it.

Let's say it someone tries to snatch that handbag. The woman shoots the thief and declares "I shot him to get back my handbag", or maybe "to defend my property".

Given she did not defend her life, is she on thin ice?

Well probably not, cause the force she used is excessive for the justification, but thats if she had the gun concealed and no liscense. If she did have the license and did it then i would say she had the right to carry and defend her property. But if she said that she was in fear of her life even though the guy wasnt armed then she would be right. But in the same senerio if she hit him with her cane and incapacitated him she would be within her right to fight back. Again this is all hypothetical and it would ultimately come down to the cops and prosecutor. Would they want to haggle an old woman and bring charges on her when she helped get a criminal off the streets?
