You Be the Judge: Does ‘LTC’ Mean License to Chase?

On the Texas Law Shield Facebook page April 24, the group’s lawyers shared a story about an individual with a License to Carry who chased after a group of thieves that had just taken large quantities of merchandise from a store in The Woodlands.

Most of us remember the simple inexpensive break open (hinged frame) firearms used by many hunters. I saw quite a few when I first began hunting and used more than a few as well. While I could not wait to obtain my first pump-action shotgun, as time goes by I appreciate these firearms more and more.
