Texas and Gun Laws

I was reading a thread over at AR15.com discussing the carry laws where the NRA convention is being held, and Texas’s carry laws came up in the discussion. That for our state’s history, and being Texas, we have some of the most weird carry laws, allowing no open carry, the CCW restrictions, tc.

However, something I felt obligated to point out, is that while we may have some weird carry laws, we have the best grand jurys in the nation. A legal, justifiable shooting is 99.9% of the time an instant “no bill”, and with the way the laws read, they offer protection against civil suits as well. If someone broke into my home, and I shot and killed him, if the grand jury no billed me, their family couldn’t sue me in civil court.
