CLOSE GUN SHOWS In his town-hall
gun-control show, Obama praised John McCain's gun-show "loophole" bill as a
good place to start, and scolded Congress for not passing it -- 15 years
ago. The bill was total deception and would have effectively closed gun
shows altogether. It required registering anyone who entered with
the FBI, whether they shopped or not, and getting prior federal permission
to even run a show -- which feds didn't have to give -- just a pack of lies
built on lies. They tried selling it as a harmless background check. Too

MYTHS Gun deniers and the anti-rights advocates, largely out of
blind fear, continually invent gun myths, a projection of their internal
terrors. From "cooling-down periods" to dum-dum bullets, they interfere
with focus on the real problems. Here is a list of dozens of phony
stoppages to crucial programs like Arm-The-Pilots and national carry, where
guns didn't "just go off." http://dailycaller.com/2015/12/21/korwin-americas-real-gun-problem-the-gun-myths
the beginning of a series I'm doing examining the myths the left puts in
the way of stopping crime, the global muslim jihad and psychotic spree
murderers. They preserve the myths (and invent new ones) to create
political capital that helps attack our rights in an effort to disarm the
public (which they feel will make them safe -- but won't). http://www.gunlaws.com/GunPhobia.htm
CAPACITY MAGAZINES Legislators asked me to prepare talking points
refuting the arguments against 30-round magazines; The Daily Caller has
published my full list: depriving us of gear as a way to stop murderers is
misguided, puts you at risk, and is a thinly disguised effort to get to
zero-round magazines -- in the false and dangerous belief that disarming
innocent people will finally disarm criminals. Police never want
less ammo because they know that's dangerous -- neither should you. http://dailycaller.com/2015/12/18/korwin-talking-points-for-the-30-round-magazine-debate
DIRECTORY OF ALAN'S WORK FOR: THE DAILY
CALLER I've finally gotten around to posting a list of
my work for The Daily Caller and Townhall.com. It's some of
my best material (the editors tell me). Just the list and descriptions
(like above) make a good quick read. http://www.gunlaws.com/newstuff.htm
6,000 of the tragic deaths annually are young black men killing each other
in ghettos, typically in drug-related battles, making these war deaths, in
the federally funded war on some drugs, not so-called "gun deaths."
Government declared war, combatants killed. Solution: declare a truce, save
Because this would eliminate more than half the
criminal gun deaths yearly it would reduce the political pressure to "go
after guns" and so is unlikely to happen, casting doubt on the new phrase,
black lives matter. (Most firearm mortality is suicide, a medical issue not
a criminal problem, and most suicides are the elderly.)

stats with your gun debate this scratches the itch.
President Obama's election the number of concealed handgun permits has
soared, growing from 4.6 million in 2007 to over 12.8 million this year.
Among the findings in our report:
The number of concealed handgun
permits is increasing at an ever-increasing rate. Over the past year, 1.7
million additional new permits have been issued -- a 15.4% increase in just
one single year. This is the largest ever single-year increase in the
number of concealed-handgun permits.
5.2% of the total adult
population in America has a permit.
Five states now have more than
10% of their adult population with concealed-handgun permits.
ten states, a permit is no longer required to carry in all or virtually all
of the state. This is a major reason why legal carrying handguns is growing
so much faster than the number of permits. [NOTE: GunLaws.com is

Texas Open Carry Bill HB 910 Effective January 1,
Texas Open Carry
After 20 years (1995-2015) the familiar Texas
Concealed Handgun License (CHL) officially changes to a Texas License To Carry or LTC -- because it now
protects both discreet and open carry of sidearms.
Bit by bit, the
lost right to bear arms in Texas is being restored -- at least for those
with government carry papers -- after decades of near-total infringement.
Texas now has 826,000 license holders, a source of pride to many, but it
means 97% of all Texans' rights remain infringed -- carry without papers
remains banned in Texas. Still, it is a step in the right direction, for
the pro-rights side (the left dislikes this liberty
As Texas joins the rest of the nation in varying
degrees of freedom to bear arms in public, I advise caution while the kinks
are worked out, authorities get used to the new standards and procedures,
social norms develop, shop keepers acclimatize, the public gets used to the
new normal of open carry, some bad apples test the limits of endurance and
civility (not recommended), and a few of you become test cases to clarify
the gray areas. Even here in Arizona where I am, with free (paperless) open
carry legal since statehood in 1912, there's a little more to it than just
putting on your boots.
Do your best to avoid being a test
case. The anti-rights advocates out there and some authorities will be
looking for the very worst examples to make into test cases, to hurt our
rights, make gun owners look bad in public, and set precedents that limit
exercise of the Second Amendment. They'll be seeking to "prove" the BITS
myth -- blood in the streets -- like they tried in vain when CHL passed.
Don't argue in public while armed.
Especially in the early days of
open carry, watch out for each other and be on best behavior. We don't live
in the same wild west any longer. Belligerence or anything less than calm
civilized behavior while you're reasonably well dressed and carrying openly
is an invitation for scrutiny and attention you would do best to avoid. I'm
being nice about that (from a state that now enjoys full Constitutional
Carry). Go slowly as you test the waters.
Open carry has
advantages, especially the "inoculation effect" on the uninitiated, when
they see reasonable people going about business politely armed. Because you
can switch over as circumstance merits, your carry options grow. Criminals
get the message, and things get better (despite lunatic ravings... in the
But if I'm open, I am constantly on alert for a

all the chilling glances open carry attracts like super-conducting

political meetings and other events where it's the modern normal.

-- Delete the word "concealed" in 60
places in 50 Texas gun laws. The round numbers are a coincidence. This has
the effect of changing "a license to carry a concealed handgun" to "a
license to carry a handgun," a simple, elegant way to revamp all the laws.
The list is in the statute itself: http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/84R/billtext/html/HB00910F.htm
The actual changes,
in the order they appear in the bill, HB 910:
-- Statute GC
§411.188(b): The classroom portion of LTC classes, going forward, must
now teach: "use of restraint holsters and methods to ensure the secure
carrying of openly carried handguns." GC §411.190(b) gets a similar
change. Those terms are not defined, and DPS will no doubt develop
instructions about this for LTC trainers. Use of restraint holsters is not
required, just teaching about them. People with current licenses, which
become LTCs automatically, don't need to go back to class. New licensees
and renewals will get the additional instruction, and the look of new
licenses will change.
-- OC §1702.206(b): A personal
protection officer who is not in a security officer uniform must carry
concealed, and if in uniform must carry openly.
TRESPASS, AND KEEPING GUN CARRIERS
-- PC §30.05(f) It remains a defense to
prosecution -- not an exemption from law -- to be armed, openly or
discreetly even with a license, on someone's property where they ban gun
possession without consent and you fail to leave (trespass). What this
means is you can be charged with trespass while armed and get to defend
yourself in court. You can produce a valid license, the "defense to
prosecution," to get off (or suffer consequences).
When you are
carrying discreetly your risk is obviously reduced. If you are carrying
openly though, your exposure is evident, and you could be charged more
easily, and "tell it to the judge." An officer has no duty to resolve your
case for you, just to charge you. If asked to leave be smart and do
-- PC §30.06 is amended so armed trespass
with an LTC while concealed is a Class C misdemeanor with a maximum $200
fine, unless you refuse to leave when told orally, which makes it a Class A
misdemeanor, up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
-- The PC
§30.06 concealed-carry trespass sign is amended so the sign or card
only applies to licensees carrying concealed (a new §30.07 sign covers
open carry). Because statute says the sign must be precise and it is now
slightly different, all existing signs are flawed (they do not give proper
notice), and so will have to be replaced if they are to ban LTC
-- A new section, PC §30.07, is added to introduce
trespass by people carrying openly, basically similar to concealed-carry
trespass. A §30.07 sign or card says:
-- "Pursuant to Section
30.07, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with an openly carried
handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government
Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter this property with a handgun
that is carried openly"
-- Like the §30.06 sign, this must be
posted in contrasting colors, in block letters at least 1-inch high, in
English and Spanish, posted where it is clearly visible at each entrance.
Places that want to keep guns out must now post both §30.06 and
-- The rules for guns in places that serve
alcohol (the "51" signs) are not affected. If the place exceeds the 51%
alcohol revenue rule, no guns, if less, it's their option.
other states' experience is an example, you will see many signs spring up,
including many total bans, some encouraging armed patrons and some
welcoming concealed only. Similar to the change to discreet carry, trespass
by a licensee while openly carrying is a Class C misdemeanor with a maximum
$200 fine, unless you refuse to leave when told orally, which makes it a
Class A misdemeanor.
-- It is not a defense to
prosecution that you were properly carrying in a shoulder or belt holster.
The ban on carrying openly does not apply to property owned or leased by a
governmental entity if it is not a premises or other place on which the
license holder is prohibited from carrying the handgun under
§§46.03 or 46.035 (the long list of prohibited places, found on
pages 31-33 in The Texas Gun
What this means is government facilities,
as a general rule, are not off limits. Clarifying a confusing gray area, a
state attorney general's opinion declared that, when a court proceeding is
held in a government facility, only the court portion is off limits, not
the rest of the facility. Do yourself a favor and get The Texas Gun

-- So now that you're

The Texas Gun Owner's Guide
§46.02(a-1) is amended, so the former offense of intentionally,
knowingly or recklessly carrying a handgun in plain view in a motor vehicle
or watercraft you own or have under your control, is eliminated -- if you
have an LTC and you are carrying in a shoulder or belt holster. In plain
English, a shoulder or belt holster makes fully or partially visible
handguns "vehicle legal" for land and water
-- The statute does not use the word or require
wearing the holster, and other parts of statute distinguish clearly
between having a handgun on or about you, or having one holstered. For
example, the law controlling guns in "bars" distinguishes between guns on
you, about you, concealed, and holstered two ways (PC §46.035(b)), and
the campus-carry ban also notes a difference: "regardless of whether the
handgun is holstered, on or about the license holder's person" (PC
The implication is strong: whether you wear the
holster or not, the law affects it while you possess it "on or about you,"
but the point could be adjudicated and very well may be. The person whose
name goes on that case will go through years of very expensive agony and
get indelible history, win or lose.
Some commenters have assumed
the holster is worn, and some officials appear to want it that way, a
conclusion not supported by the current language. The extra freedom of
having a holstered gun that isn't worn on your body proves valuable often,
especially on a day when you switch back and forth from open to discreet to
vehicle storage for entry into a place that denies your rights. That sort
of blatant civil-rights discrimination (denying entry) causes massive
screaming from the "news" media and outrageous protests from some segments
of society, but not for this specific, enumerated, fundamental
constitutional right to bear arms. Yet.
A holstered but carried
(non-worn) gun is common when bringing a firearm to a friend, the range,
for putting on later especially with clip-on holsters, or when transporting
more than a few firearms. This last point seems overlooked in the heady
buildup to Day One when people seem so eager and focused on trying out this
new fangled freedom. Even seatbelts interfere with wearing holsters, as
many Texans are about to find out, making clip-ons and paddle types on a
passenger seat more common (note to stores -- stock up!).
46.035 is amended, to provide an exception to the offense of (former CHL)
intentionally letting a handgun show in public, if the person is an LTC and
the firearm is in a shoulder or belt holster. Basically, you can carry
openly where you could formerly carry discreetly (watch out for specified
schools), but while you can carry discreetly in any manner (free of
holsters), open carry requires the shoulder or belt holster.
The uncomfortable wording here provides "an exception to the application"
of the offense, instead of properly eliminating the offense altogether.
It's a bald affront to the Second Amendment. Letting a gun show is not a
true crime. Banning that is infringement, and the responsible parties earn
punishment, not the public. Brandishing a gun intending to cause a negative
reaction ought to be chargeable. But if letting a gun show inadvertently
causes someone dread where none is actually warranted, remedial education,
or counseling for that person is always an option. Bearing arms is not some
right hidden in penumbras and emanations. Folks used to have such biased
reactions when people of color ate at lunch counters. It's time for such
prejudice to be recognized for what it is, and end.
-- (a-1) Also
in this section, we have the new offense of intentionally letting a
properly open carried firearm show at an institution of higher education or
private or independent institution of higher education, or on any public or
private driveway, street, sidewalk or walkway, parking lot, parking garage,
or other parking area of such a school.
This means these schools

Aug. 1, 2016 (for 4-year schools) and Aug. 1, 2017 (for 2-year schools)

the rule on the ancillary areas around those schools, unless a school
activity is taking place there, according to a recent attorney general
1: So do you have to be actually wearing the shoulder
or belt holster to legally have a sidearm with you? Or can you just holster
it and make it openly legal? It's an obvious question for a test
case. If I was the judge and I wanted a protective approach to Texans'
precious right to arms, I would read the law precisely, and as long as that
gun was in anything that could remotely pass for a shoulder or belt
holster, even an ankle holster attached with a short belt, I would find it
perfectly legal anywhere in a vehicle or possessed, stop bothering these
good people officer. Next case. [I'm not a judge, this is not legal advice,
we're just citizens discussing an issue of common interest under the
protection of the First Amendment.]
On the other hand, if I hated
guns, thought all you rabble are too dangerous to have guns, and I know
better than you all, I would read the law precisely and know the
legislature clearly intended belt and shoulder holsters to be worn as belts
and on shoulders, so unless they were perfectly fitted through belt loops
with the latest best retention models as I judge them, you would be in
violation, bring in the next victim. This is called: "A nation of
2: The §46.02 Problem. Intentionally bearing a handgun
in public is currently illegal under Texas statute. The statute goes on to
provide a list of exceptions. An apparently direct violation of the U.S.
Constitution (which brooks no infringement), it is so ingrained in Texas it
is sometimes hardly noticed. Because your right to bear arms should be
inviolate under the U.S. Constitution, state law ought to go no further
than to outline and provide punishment for the crimes that can be committed
or enhanced with firearms, not outlaw the basic right and then carve out
exemptions. Too late.
This leads to the current problem with the
LTC law. The license gives you an exception to the crime, but anyone seeing
you openly armed can't tell by looking that you have the exception. By
appearance you're in violation. Sacre bleu! Sorry, press 1 for
English (I had this French girlfriend, it's a long story). Should LEOs
routinely stop folks on the street, ask everyone, no one, spot check,
profile the bubbas, look for probable cause, seek articulable suspicion...
should you wear your license in a plastic convention badge holder? Nah.
Police aren't sure how to handle this, and they are not
unified on the point. It's complicated. Look it up on line. I'm waiting to
see it how it comes out. Don't be the test case. But I repeat

understand, and being so much closer to the problem, are in the best
position to judge and establish a rational policy. http://tinyurl.com/pcf6s2p
Arab nations refuse to accept any of these refugees due to the threat of
jihad they pose, what our media prefers to call terrorism. Perhaps
important, moving these people
halfway around the world at enormous expense to a totally alien environment
where not even the language, food, clothing, housing or customs are
familiar is cruel and unusual, and frankly,
irony of governors using Executive Orders and Executive Action to halt
forced federal immigration, where the governors' powers are less than
explicit, is exquisite. Taking their examples from our own glorious leader,
it absolutely highlights the "news" media's hypocrisy and convulsions
-- having to denigrate these actions while championing Hussein-Obama's
identical approach. A joy to behold.
INCONVENIENT REFUGEE FACTS (corrected)
Our super security specialists assure us on the "news" Syrian
refugees are vetted and they're all clean, good to go.
NOT include the 400,000 (not 6,000) people
sneaking into America, unattended, across our southern border too. They
tip the ratio. (FULL STORY
ran in my last Page Nine)
Border Patrol has told the "news" media that
apprehensions are "Down" hooray we're winning, and the papers have
repeated that, no questions asked. BP still agrees for every 400,000
captures 400,000 get through (1 for 1). Critics say 800,000 get through
(2 for 1). Cynics say it's higher. Quien sabe.
Correction: My prior report said 6,000, the correct
number is 400,000+, from Border Patrol. My apologies for the error,
proving again, despite the rumors, I'm only human. Border Patrol
indicates those figures are from 2012 forward, with a 28% drop this fiscal
year, which would work out to "only" 288,000, if the drop trend
holds until year's end.
How does that stack up with the 100%
vetting success rate Jeh Johnson wants you to believe? 10,000 Syrians plus-or-minus 400,000 completely unknown,
who don't count.

ANDERSON COOPER: Which enemy that you made during your
political career are you most proud of?
HILLARY CLINTON: Well, in
addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies,
the Iranians; probably the Republicans.
Can you believe that
Hillary is proud to call half of America her enemy? How does she expect to
lead our nation if she called its citizens her political enemies?
