Firearm Laws for Businesses & Their Customers
Volume 1: Federal Infringements
No tool is more regulated than the firearm. Locating and interpreting the intent of the myriad of firearms laws can be daunting and, in most cases, highly frustrating. This book is designed to serve as a reference and procedural guide to those brave individuals who believe in the fundamental right to keep and bear arms and wish to earn a living pursuing that passion. If this is you, the manual is designed to help your new business get started or maintain your ongoing businesses without legal entanglements.
Volume 2: Texas Infringements
Texas has a one of the most positive “pro-gun” reputations among the states. With this reputation, one would expect that Texas’s gun laws would be minimal and, as many believe, “pretty much anything goes.” This is not the case. Like most states, Texas has a long history of repressive firearm laws, particularly with regard to carrying firearms off a person’s own property. Texas is making significant improvements. Until the time when the phrase “shall not be infringed” is interpreted as it is stated in the United States Constitution, firearm owners, firearm businesses, and other businesses will continue to struggle with determining and complying with the continued onslaught of federal and state restrictions. To help in this endeavor, this volume serves as a valuable resource for determining what the firearm laws are in Texas.
