Texas AG Sues a Houston County to Allow Concealed Firearms

IMO---Something similar should happen here in Utah where Most Courts refuse to provide Lockers when setting up a Secure Area, as described by Utah Law.
It is also interesting that the Courts use this same Statute (That requires them to provide lockers) to charge you with a second degree felony if you carry in the secure area.

Texas AG Sues a Houston County to Allow Concealed Firearms on Courthouse Premises

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing a rural, Houston-area county for displaying signs outside its courthouse that prohibit carrying firearms on its premises.

Paxton is bringing the suit under a year-old law—Texas Government Code § 411.209—that bars “state agencies or political subdivisions” from posting signs that prohibit concealed handgun holders. Paxton has also sued the city of Austin for violating that law, and that case is pending.

“A local government cannot be allowed to flout Texas’s licensed carry laws, or any state law, simply because it disagrees with the law or doesn’t feel like honoring it,” Paxton said in a statement Tuesday. “I will vigilantly protect and preserve the Second Amendment rights of Texans.”
If you consider yourself an American, and are not yet on a government watchlist...You're Not Trying.

Wow, I knew Houston was big but didn't realize it had counties. Talk about a bad headline.

Texas, where everything is so big their cities have counties! :lol3:
