yeah, same here. Once apon a time Texas use to have a law where a property owner could shoot trespassers and still might have it..Not saying I would do that. But you know Texas has some old laws still in the books. My cousin has lived there for years and she tells me some crazy stuff....Don't mess with Texas!

there was a time even in Texas before the Castle Law was enacted that even in a self defence shooting, it was very likely you would be spending the night in jail and you would have to prove you indeed acted in self defence.

a lot of it depended on where you lived in Texas. closer to the larger and more populated cities, things were a bit more liberal and almost anti-gun like. in the less populated and more rural areas, a bit less, and more conservative in nature.

Just don't get your gun drunk.

Guns kill people, you know.

I still beg to differ. As we all know, it often doesn't matter what the law says, it's what the powers-that-be want or think. If a prosecutor finds out that you had alcohol in you at the time of the shooting, it may not matter what the law says, he may choose to press the issue, focus on that, and try to get you hung out to dry on it.
Just my .02.

Yeah I agree, they would say something like he was intoxicated and made the wrong decision and wasn't coherent at the time. In the western days it would fly and in today society you never know.
