I cant be deprived of my rights or disfranchised in any way. Then how is it that I can be jailed/fined and have my property taken and be treated like a criminal for carrying a firearm (sidearm) with out a license?
The same thing can be said about any other license that isnt commercial.
You should hire a lawyer to defend your case. You were fortunate that you were not charged with a more serious crime. I hope you did not enter any residence or building bc the DA could modify your charges to burglary of a building. I am sorry to say people seldom have the right to self help, just...Read more »

After reading chapter 49 and making note of the specific statutes that seem most applicable, the next step is to search the county law library (or WestLaw or LexisNexis) for published opinions from the appeals courts that reference those exact statutes. Those opinions are important because the law...Read more »

If your son requests appointed counsel, they may screen his financial...Read more »
In fact I prefer it to avoid any of the issues. (Been told stories but never thought I'd be one.) After presenting my receipt I was detained by employees due to a discrepancy. Date was incorrect. I had no problem with them doing what they needed to clarify this issue. After what seemed like 30+... Read more »
