    I hate these God damn liberal anti-gun CA hippies constantly overreacting and overstepping their limited power.

    That sucks, especially since he really wasn't even on school property. In Texas he could have parked in the school parking lot and it would be legal.

    Maybe, maybe not. Back in 1999 or so I got pulled over for speeding. There wasn't a shoulder on the road so I pulled over onto the street that leads into the highschool. I used to keep a novelty brass knuckle/belt buckle in my car. Cop found it and I got arrested for having a weapon on school grounds. I'm sure if it was a firearm they would have been a lot more pissed than they were.

    WTF search?

    I'd like to know the reasonable suspicion for having his vehicle sniffed in the first place if he was parked on a public street.

    I read the updated CHL statutes last week and apparently when they refer to "premises" they talk specifically about inside a building or part of a building. They state that a sidewalk or parking lot is not considered premises.

    http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/administration/crime_records/chl/relatedlaws.htm



    Taken from the CHL statues PDF on the TxDPS site, Page 46, 46.035 "Unlawful carrying of handgun by license holder", referring to paragraph (f)(3) on page 47:

    This may not be the same for a long gun in someone's car, but in Texas of course a vehicle is looked at as an extension of your private residence.

    Oh, I know they talked about that a good bit in my CHL class. In my situation I was searched illegally and arrested on charges that couldn't hold water. It all ended up getting dropped, and if it happened now (instead of when I was a naive 17 year old) I would raise a stink about it. My point was that cops are going to do what they want anyway

    It sucks that you got dragged through the mud but it's good that it was dropped.

    Unfortunately if a cop wants to dick you around, you're right they'll do it.

    This is similar to the information I was told during my CCW class in Ohio :wiggle:

    LA. State, not City.
    School policies can and do differ from state, local, etc.

    It's not surprising that they did this but I do also feel schools go far beyond what their reach should be to discipline students. Kids getting suspended, etc for things outside of school property and functions is bullshit.

    We just adopted the Castle Doctrine here and with it all the benefits like your automobile being an extension of your home. I remember before I got my CHL, it was legal for me to drive to and from the range with a pistol in my car but if I stopped anywhere including to get gas I was breaking the law. Of course now I get my CHL and anyone legally allowed can have a pistol in their car in Texas. :big grin:

    Before Sept. 08 is was legal to "carry" in your car if you were "traveling". The problem was that they didn't define what traveling was, so there was a good chance that you would get arrested if you had a pistol in your console/glove box/etc.

    Doesn't matter at all now though :o

    No shit. It would only take two or three more steps beyond this to get to the point where they expel a kid because his parent has a gun at home and he might access it if he happened to get picked on or disciplined at school.

    What legal ground do they really think they have to search a car OFF school property? Because it belongs to a student? What if it wasn't parked on a public lot or street? What if it was parked at a friends house that lives right next to the school?

    Get'em used to having their rights violated early, I says.

    Lol, over here in Australia he would be in jail for having a shotgun in his car, and in double the trouble because he is under 18, He would be in trouble for having the knife there as well, and his parents would prob be in trouble as well because he is under 18.

    And no im not joking

    When my dad was in high school, they used to carry their shotguns or rifles on the school bus to go hunting after class. :dunno:

    I would imagine if the parents wish to take this to court that they will win. The school's jurisdiction certainly does not reach beyond school property. Some school boards make really idiotic decisions.

    lol, my chem teacher let us play with gasoline and make moonshine.

    It seems that there was likely a mistake on his part. He probably admitted to having guns, had them clearly visible, or opened his truck for them to see them. Best choice would be to tell them to get a warrant and fuck off.
